A few reasons why you may not like us:

  • We’re not a sexy Silicon Valley startup. That’s just not our thing – we’re an established firm that has proven success.
  • You don’t like change. This is not a job for someone who likes ‘predictable’.    The market is dynamic which means the work is dynamic. It’s a fast-paced environment and you need to adapt to adapt accordingly. You won’t be bored.
  • You’re not the collaborative type. We’re solving pretty heady challenges. We bring ideas to the table and we work together to solve these challenges. If you’re looking to hide out and do your own thing, this might not be the right spot. 

And a few reasons why you might love us:

  • We’re not a fly by night firm. We’ve got an amazing track record of success and we foster ongoing innovation.   So you get all the benefits of a stable company, while enjoying a very entrepreneurial culture.
  • You’ll see your work in action. We value speed-to-market, so you’ll get the chance to push your code and see your work in use and impacting our business.
  • The work environment is amazing. Our office space is really cool, open, and sleek. We provide free beverages, snacks and have fun while working hard.
  • The team is even more amazing. You’ll work with people who are as energetic, smart, and driven as you are. You’ll be managed by the best, too.
  • Your success will be recognized and appreciated. You’ll be able to see your direct impact on our growth. You won’t be just another cog in the wheel.
