Do you know the byte order of a 64-bit integer on an x86 processor? Neither do we.
That kind of minutia isn’t important to us because we're focused on solving real business needs. Customers come to us with problems they face day in and day out that are dragging them down. They know that there's a better way, but they need help imagining what it looks like and how to make it real on a budget they can afford.
Because we often come in at an early stage of solving a problem, we have a lot of creative freedom to use the tool we think is best for the job. We have a community of high performers with a proven track record who have fostered a culture of trust that we'll get the job done. We've built apps with Kotlin, C++, C#, Java, Typescript, Node, PHP, Ruby, Clojure, and more.
We make web apps, mobile apps, desktop apps, and more. You don't need to be an expert in a particular technology - we're looking for smart people with experience in software development who can learn fast and apply that knowledge to solve problems quickly. If you love making software as much as we do, we want to work with you!
We’re looking for people who want to:
Spend most of their time shaping and coding new software capabilities and features.
Learn new skills and techniques in the software development craft with a community that loves it
Work with a team of passionate people that want to succeed and want to see you succeed.
The working world is filled with zombies that are shackled to boring, repetitive, and time-consuming processes that sap their creativity and spirit. We're helping to set them free, one application at a time. Do you know how great it feels to take a job someone used to do in 2 weeks and let them do it in 2 hours? Do you know the satisfaction you get when someone tells you 'Thank you for giving my weekends back?'
Why Work for SimVentions?
It's hard to make a successful business in today's environment. There is constant pressure to deliver more, better, faster, cheaper. Competition is fierce. It's natural that so many companies are hyper-focused on their bottom-line because that's the only way they can see how to survive. When you're so focused on survival, you make decisions on the next quarter instead of the next 5 years.
Since its inception, SimVentions has made investing in the long term a priority. The best investment you can make is to create an environment where people want to succeed. We believe if you invest in people, give them a voice, and join them with a team that wants to succeed that you can accomplish just about anything.
We take a holistic view of creating a productive work environment. We don't want you to live and breathe your work, because ultimately that's a poor investment. You can't live your life like that forever, and eventually that comes back to hurt the company too. Helping people stay balanced and providing them plenty of opportunities to grow is how we built a company that has continued to expand through all the crazy economic conditions of the last decade.
• Keep a work-life balance that helps ensure you have the time and energy to live your life and meet each new day refreshed and ready for new challenges.
• We're 100% employee owned - no shareholders demanding a race to the bottom. Share in the company's success!
• Help build a better community with one of the many outreach programs we have - or start a new one for a cause you care about.
Making people a priority is pretty radical in today's competitive environment. It took a leap of faith to start down this path, but after 20 years we can't imagine running the company any other way.
Due to the requirements in the Safer Federal Workforce Taskforce guidance and the nature of our covered contracts and facilities, all employees may need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have a legal exemption with approved accommodation.
