A few reasons why you might love us:

And a few reasons why you may not like working for us:

  • You don’t like change. This is not a job for someone who likes “predictable.” The job is based on the unknown which inevitably means change. If you like to know what you’re going to do every day, you may not like working on this team. You must go with the flow here.
  • You’re not the collaborative type. We work together to ensure the best possible solutions for our customers. We think two brains are better than one, so we do most of our work together. Teamwork makes the dream work on this team.
  • You’re a tech snob. We deal with all technology – Linux and Windows; .NET, Java, and Python; SQL and NoSQL (mongo DB); RabbitMQ and other open source tools and libraries. We love technology and want to work with all of it. If you’re wed to a particular tech, you may not like working for us.
