What happened to the software industry? So many companies chase feature requests, always reacting, and end up creating bad, bloated software. They have forgotten what’s at the heart of the software business:
We have not forgotten. We are a software company, and software quality comes first. We literally won’t ship a new feature until we believe that the codebase is high quality. Simple, maintainable, best-practice code. That’s our top priority. Great code is the foundation of everything we do, because we are a software company to the core.
How do we create great software? By putting great software engineers in charge! We don’t want scrum masters, committee heads, or non-technical MBAs running our company. Everyone on our Engineering team is an expert coder, from entry-level developers to the most senior executives.
That’s right, our executives can still code. And they do! We host company-wide coding competitions all the time. Guess who won the last one? Someone in this role you’re applying to. That’s right, one of our top executives won the coding challenge.
Do you want to work at a company where the MBAs are in charge? We don’t. We are a software company run by software engineers. If you’re an executive with a heart of C++, come join us and lead the future of software engineering.
Deep-Diving into our software development platform, analyzing quality failures and improvement opportunities all the way to the technical root cause. You will have access to a team of experts who work on Deep Dive analysis full time, giving you the power to get deep into an issue much faster than you could if you worked alone.
Hint: The root cause is always in the code!
Making Important Technical Decisions (ITDs). Find the patterns and figure out ways to improve the code quality of every product in the company (we have over 100 software products in our portfolio). Your decisions will drive the quality of our codebase, and drive the future of our software engineering operations overall.
You’ve been a software engineer your whole career. You worked late into the night on code sprints. You did senior-level work for junior-level salary. In other words, you paid your dues. Shouldn’t an elite problem-solver like you be the one making important decisions for your...
