Although the company is based in Florida, due to the specific nature of the required skills set, they are amenable to people working remotely if you do not live within commutable range of Lakeland, Florida. You'd need to be prepared to visit their Florida offices once or twice per year.
Career-wise, there are two paths from here: Move into a technical lead position on another team, or you can move into management.
Additionally, they have a chief architect who needs people with technical leadership skills to help with higher-level thinking around problem-solving. This has proven attractive to engineers who are more keen on solving problems than managing people! Instead, you get to work with the chief engineer and think through cutting-edge solutions in their current R&D activities.
They have such a line of sight with their software (they have a tool that tracks objectives and key resolves so they can see in on the product road map) that engineers get to see how the products are changing clients' lives and making the company a success. With larger organisations you can sometimes feel like a cog in the wheel: You won't feel like that here.
Why come here and do this though? What's the attraction?
To quote the hiring manager for this role: I definitely would say challenge. We have so many challenges here and there's so much creative flexibility. I look across my entire organisation: I just look for smart, critical thinkers. If they've felt unheard in their current organisation and they really feel like they've got great, creative ideas, then this is where they need to come.
To quote their VP of Human Resources: Why I came to work here was a noble purpose. We are helping students to graduate in a decent amount of time and not assume tons of debt. Work for something that was really noble. We're really helping the institutions help the next generation get through school in a really positive, efficient way.
So if they want to be working with really challenging, neat things and be doing something noble, I think we provide that.
So there you have it, straight from the source!
