What’s in it for you?
True collaboration. You will work closely with enterprise clients who welcome the expertise we bring, the work we do, and the solutions we introduce. We take a ”one team” approach that translates to being involved in the project, with the client, from the moment the contract is signed. It’s a different way of working, one that guarantees access to the information and people we need in order to deliver on our promises.
Knowledge and exposure. As a smaller team, all of our engineers have the opportunity to work across the project from the domain to integration; from containerization to networking. This is a place where Consultants, Engineers, Product and Development, and leadership come together to foster a genuine environment of knowledge sharing and support. Working with the smartest people allows you to focus on your deliverables, trusting that the team is doing the same, with access to a rapid feedback loop.
Career advancement. As the company grows, so will your career. We prioritize the development and recognition of our people, providing opportunities to mentor and be mentored, and building out career paths. We’ve had engineers grow into Leads; Support Specialists expand their reach to work across multiple large-scale clients and expand the reach and scope of the work our Cloud Engineers perform. There is endless scope for learning, including the opportunity to advance your AWS certification and gain training and certification in other platforms and products.
Our people empower our clients; we empower them.
We are equally passionate about our clients as we are the people who make up our teams. We look for and welcome smart, talented people. Narrow role descriptions do not constrain our teams. They are empowered to pragmatically solve problems, with the autonomy to make decisions that will drive success for our clients. Employee success is driven by our customer obsession.
We work hard to stay connected and relay our appreciation for our people. With a wellness allowance, lunch-and-learn demo opportunities, and (remote) social gatherings, this is a place that prioritizes the need for balancing career development, physical well-being, and mental health.
