Why be part of the ABC Software Development Team?

See what our Development Team has to say and how they feel about ABC Software Development...


"I like being a developer at ABC because of the passion that my fellow developers have for writing good code. I don’t just mean good “functional” code, I mean code that is both functional AND implemented well. Code that is decisively created with purpose, intended for reusability and maintainability, not code that is simply thrown together in a way that happens to work in one situation." - Sr. Developer - 5+ years with ABC

"The fast paced atmosphere enables developers of varying skill levels to grow and provide meaningful contributions to the company very quickly."- Software Developer - 3+ years with ABC

"I feel like I have a “voice” here at ABC. My thoughts and opinions are always taken seriously by my team and ABC Management."- Software Developer - 2+ years with ABC

"I enjoy the flexible work environment that allows me to manage my life and interests outside of work. As long as I maintain the trust that I will get my work done, people understand when I need to come in late because of a dentist appointment or leave early because of an extra choir rehearsal."- Software Developer - 3+ years with ABC

"I have been here for 6 years and wouldn’t trade a single day of it. Always interesting and fast paced. We do what we can to make a difference in our clients life each and every day."- Sr. Software Developer - 6+ years with ABC

"One of the best things about being a developer on the ABC SD Team is the group of people I get to work with. There are a lot of talented, dedicated people who are easily approachable for collaboration."- Software Developer - 2+ years with ABC

    I have been working at ABC Financial full-time (More than a year)


    - Culture, I am a bit biased on this one, mainly for the fact this place is close to the Arkansas River, when I am in town I do a lot of fishing from members from other teams (woot team bonding). Everyone is friendly and I've never had issues collaborating with members from other teams to tackle road blocks along the way.
    - it's definitely an environment where you can ask questions without being ridiculed. I've worked at a few places in my day where people get bug eyed when you are asking a question.
    - The work is good steady pace which for my position is 70% tech I know and 30% tech I need to ramp up on and grow. Nothing stagnant and I'm always growing
    - Leadership is understanding to your personal life. I'm remote and they do their best for bringing me on site to not leave my wife alone with all of our kids to fend for her self for too long. One of the few companies I've worked for that respects and acknowledges that we might have families and need to spend some time with them.
    -to go with previous bullet leadership I've interacted with never demanded my respect they earned it, I've been an employee and had ups and downs, they have went way above and beyond not only for myself but, for my family. Hands down best leadership I've ever had the pleasure of working for.


    I don't really have any cons to list, I judge my job based on if I wake up in the morning and can't wait to get to my desk. If I did have cons I'd just hit up leadership to discuss it because well it's an actual open door policy here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ABC Financial (Little Rock, AR) in April 2016.


    Applied online. I was called for an interview a couple days later. I was interviewed by two people. They asked 5 questions. I thought that I did good at the interview because they even took me on the floor to introduce me to the programs and some co-workers. But I never received a call back.
