What is the feeling of job security at Movable Ink?

Pros

They get a lot of things right. Pay is pretty good. Co-workers are great. The sense of "community" is really strong. One the engineering side, they do most things right. Ex, code reviews, ci/cd, good tools, etc.

Cons

Minor: The development process is a little immature and ad-hoc. That mostly stems from being a small company, and not needing anything formal. But we are getting are getting a little too big, and we'll need to get a little more formal. Too many languages in use. Ruby, JavaScript, Go, C++. You have to mentally switch gears often. Being a small company, and smaller engineering dept, the chance for "promotion" doesn't seem to really exist. Although, there are no fears about job security. No 401K match.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.
