We’re looking for individuals with a growth mindset, who are passionate about learning, and approach work fearlessly. You are someone who makes up for experience by learning quickly, thinking critically, communicating actively, and contributing proactively. You understand personal responsibility and how your role lends to the success of critical projects and the larger objectives of the company. Plus if you have projects to show off.
You ask a lot of questions and actively work towards moving the project forward. You go the extra mile by taking time on your own to ramp up technical skills and reaching out to team members for help. You are not afraid to take on new challenges with grit, passion, and determination to accelerate your learning path.
You’re excited to be part of an environment that encourages this and is invested in you for the long-run.
With the guidance and mentorship of senior members of the team, you will have the opportunity to contribute in building top-of-the-line applications. You will be exposed to a wide range of projects, put your problem-solving skills to practice, build robust applications, and write maintainable code efficiently.
To reach that level of caliber, you are expected to:
Learn new technologies whenever necessary
Welcome (and ask for!) feedback, process that feedback, and turn it to action with a growth mindset
Collaborate with team members through pair programming and code reviews
Consistency and proactiveness are key values in ensuring high-value contributions to the team.
Best Practices and Processes
You will be working closely with other engineers so standardized processes and proper documentation are essential. Our senior team members will help mentor you with measures to maintain quality and robustness of applications, and you are expected to be vigilant in ensuring that these processes are applied across the team by adhering to acceptance criteria in pushing code, maintaining good test coverage, and writing good documentation.
Our team works because we also treat everyone as part of an extended family and emphasize the importance of having strong values. You have a work / life integration that works for you and how we work at SVI. Our team members are in it for the long run - those invested in the team remain part of the extended SVI family throughout their careers.
We look to work with and develop T-shaped people who build strong computer science fundamentals, build deep technical expertise in their core area, and are ready and willing to work flexibly in new areas.
We value a product-driven mindset to solve business problems and a proactiveness to learn as much as traditional experience.
Here are some examples of some technology our team currently uses. We don’t expect you to know every language, but we do expect you to be comfortable ramping up in any of these areas:
CSS and HTML
AWS including services like Lambdas, Elastic Beanstalk, API Gateway, Kinesis, and Athena
Git and Github
Unmatched learning opportunities with world class team members who have worked at companies like Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Samsung, and HP.
Work on meaningful client projects that create value for our customers’ businesses and internal products that create value for our team.
Chance to explore new things - new technologies, new tools, new projects, new industries.
Flexible work hours - work from anywhere and at flexible times; you will (almost) always have someone on your team online with you.
Flat and open organizational structure with family-like relationships.
Competitive salary relative to your skill level, autonomy, and capability to add value to the team. There is opportunity for yearly evaluations and performance-based growth.
