What we look for in candidates:? 

Beyond the relevant technical skill-sets, we want candidates that value software as a craft, that strive for excellence, can take and give (gentle) criticism and communicate effectively. ?We don’t hire prima donnas or “alpha geeks.”? Well, we try not to.??? 

Candidates do not have to have particularly gregarious personalities or fit into ‘bro culture’ but should be able to voice their opinion effectively. ?We have quiet people and outgoing people from all sorts of personal and professional backgrounds.??? 

Automated testing is important to our culture as we have no QA?team?and this gives us a safety net to change the software rapidly. ?This goes beyond manual testing or writing a few scripts that automate a browser.? We write unit, integration and functional tests.? The candidate will need some exposure to writing tests. ?It helps if they come from a background in TDD or BDD.???
