Our Culture

 

You’ll get to work side-by-side with some of the brightest people on the east coast.  In fact, we only hire one out of every 10 developers we interview.  And we have fun too.  No ties here.  Jeans and t-shirts are the dress code here and we have game nights with beer pong, lunch-n-learns and we’ve even been known to knock off early and head to the FunPlex for go cart racing and laser tag.

 

Who are you?

 

This is where we typically put all the cookie cutter stuff like “self-motivated, go getter, etc.”.  But, at Agilence we find that to be so passé.  Here’s what we really need:

  • You were a great student. Nothing gets you ready for hard core problem solving like a fundamental understanding of the basics.
  • You’ve got some experience under your belt. You’ve been working full-time as a technical business analyst for at least 3 years and you’ve got experience with data/file integrations. 
  • You love to understand and solve intellectual challenges. Does diving in on the details make you happy?  If so, then you are the person we want.
  • You have no fear. Embrace the unknown.  There are so many cool things to be accomplished. 
  • You are an explorer and risk taker. We can teach you what we do, but, unless you have that thirst for knowledge, you won’t fit in.  We want people who see a new tool or technology and test it out just because it looks cool. 
  • You aren’t afraid to fail. What? Edison said he found 10,000 ways not to make a light bulb before he made it work.  We are going to break a few eggs here and make some mistakes.  They are learning experiences and we embrace them.
  • You are not a slacker. We work fast and we still deliver high quality results.  This job is not for the timid.  We are going to teach you and we work as a team.  As part of that team, it’s all or nothing.  Either you succeed as a team or you don’t.   You won’t let them down.

 

At the end of the day it’s all about results.  We need coworkers who are hard-working and fast learners.  We’ll give you the tools you need to succeed and teach you how to use them.  But, you have to have that drive and motivation to take it to the next level and try to do things no one else has done before.

 

We are always looking at new technologies and new tools.  We want you to bring new ideas to the group and help us move into the future. 

 

And don’t be afraid to speak up if you see something wrong.  Everyone here has the ability, the obligation, to stop the process if we heading down a bad path.  Whether it’s a UI feature or a fundamental architecture change, we need your feedback and advice.  Your input is priceless!
