We don’t care if you want to work contract or be an employee, where you live in the world, what you wear, if you sleep days and work nights, or some combination in between, just as long as you can give us your full-time commitment, are in it for the long run, and we can find 4 hours between us for collaboration between 9am and 5pm, Toronto time.
Yikes! 4 hours for collaboration every day? Sorry, not a meeting, we actually don’t like them, other than for social gatherings and tech shows, we just need some cross over time for Scrum discussions in our private G+ Community.
If we do need to chat, it’s in a Hangout. Don’t worry, pyjamas are more than okay. Most of our software is built in the Toronto area but we have no office here, we work virtually, but we do have an office in Shawnee, Kansas, if it just so happens you are in that area and prefer bricks and mortar.
We want opinionated people – “I think we should do this” rather than “tell me what to do” – who are more than comfortable with everyone else having an opinion too!
We want continuous learners. You share more articles, tech finds, check this outs, than anyone you know. You spontaneously learn and explore, you find having to learn something new is exciting, never scary.
Arbitrary deadlines are just that – arbitrary. But, shipping every day and using dates to keep the focus on, bloat out, and to give everyone else a marker that they can coordinate around, no matter if that marker moves or not, is really important to ship, ship often, ship it good! We are in the process of adopting continuous integration and test driven development – we want to ship 20 times a day. No, we’re not even close. But that is our goal!
If you’re interested send us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about yourself and a few projects that you have worked on recently.
