Our Engineering Culture:
At Ellevation, we are organized into small, cross-functional teams that are motivated to meet or exceed high-level objectives in service of our customers. We focus on outcomes over output and our teams are empowered to research, prototype, and develop “MVPs” to solicit user feedback and validate hypotheses. We measure and rapidly iterate so that the end result is a high-confidence, high-value product. To avoid silos and over-specialization, team members work together closely for 9-12 months so that they develop deep expertise, productive working relationships, and have the runway to experiment and learn from failure while tackling tricky challenges.
Thought diversity is a core principle for Ellevation Engineering. Our engineers feel comfortable and confident to voice their ideas and opinions, even if we disagree, because this is how we arrive at the best ideas that lead us to optimal results. We value best-practice software engineering principles such as continuous integration, loose coupling, and SOA. As a small technology company, we seek individuals who are willing to be cross-functional, hands-on in multiple areas, and a technical thought leader for the organization.
You are expected to take on and own vital initiatives and duties for the company, spark and lead discussion, and help establish the company’s technical direction while providing timely and quality support and education across the organization. This is a tremendous opportunity to help build the engineering foundation of the company.
