As an Engineer, your ultimate deliverable will be to effectively build a solution (or a part of it) that will be implemented in the client's business and run successfully going forward. Specifically we will expect from you:
Depending on your level (which will be assessed during the hiring process), you will be given a matching level of responsibility (either an associate working on small tasks, an engineer working on large and complex tasks, or a lead engineer architecting the projects and leading project teams to get projects done). After each project completion, your performance will be reassessed and your level will be adjusted, which will be followed with financial rewards if success was accomplished.
You will be free to decide how you want to accomplish your goal, so long as the produced result matches our quality standards and fits in the team's overall strategy and tech base. You will be held accountable for the outcomes of your actions, and not your activities.
We have a tight business to run and our jobs require a certain commitment to results and willingness to accept responsibility for the individual actions on the part of our employees. Therefore, we require our candidates to:
The following skills/experience will be necessary:
The following will help:
The organization is consistently and constantly managed for performance and results. High performers are rewarded. Excuses are not accepted and employees who make them are ejected. Long, unnecessary, bloviating meetings do not exist. Direct, quick and clear feedback is given on everybody's work. The owner personally manages the business and there is little middle management present. If you prove yourself to be a reliable and effective employee, you will have all the necessary authority, resources, etc. made available to you in order to deliver your results.
There is base pay and project bonus pay. Base pay varies significantly by the Engineer's level of ability and responsibility (Lead/Engineer/Associate) that the Engineer takes on projects - this level is reassessed after every project that the Engineer completes. Projects upon completion are rewarded with a bonus - bonus depends on the delivery of all requirements assigned to the Engineer, timeliness of delivery, rate of errors, and the amount of management attention needed in the project. Engineers who can deliver functional solutions that match requirements quickly and with little management action to correct errors get the best rewards and promotions in the organization.
You decide when you want to work. What we expect from you are results. Project Leads arrange daily communications with the team in a schedule that works best for everyone, and company-wide there is only one team meeting occurring twice per week. Outside of that, you set your own hours and work when it is easiest for you to.
Our Engineers work to build solutions and not just to write code. You will have freedom in how you want to architect the solutions you are making and we will heavily encourage initiative on your part, so long as you direct your initiative to quality and effective delivery.
We are a dynamic and growing organization with a team spread around multiple continents. If you prove yourself as a responsible, driven and motivated individual, there will be opportunities for you to lead projects and manage tech teams.
