Our talent base continues to grow to serve the increasingly complex needs of our clients.  Located throughout the Southeast, we work with Fortune 1000 clients to build custom solutions to our clients’ business problems.  Each project is unique, offers new challenges, and provides exciting opportunities to learn from the best minds in the business.

 

Our areas of expertise include software development, quality assurance, business intelligence, and application support. Each of our offices has a fun and unique culture, and we all share the same passion for our work. With our career development program and internal training initiatives, you have all the tools you need to reach your full potential. The rest is up to you!

The prerequisites are designed to keep you learning new skills throughout your career and provide constant goals and challenges for your professional development.

CTS also offers dynamic and rewarding careers for internal employees, including Human Resources, Recruiting, Internal IT Support, Accounting, Business Development, and Marketing. We want all employees to realize their full potential, so we offer the training, opportunity, and experience needed for success in every area of the business. We have experienced record growth year over year for the majority of our history, and we have an outstanding group of people managing our internal services and processes to ensure we stay ahead of the curve.

CTS offers multiple types of training year-round. We provide classroom training and self-study materials to help you meet your prerequisites for promotion, and we sponsor certifications in applicable technologies at each stage in your career. Not only do we pay for the certification exams, we pay for the resources to help you study and give you a bonus once you’re certified!

We are a team, regardless of office location or work site. You might work at the client site for certain projects, but you’ll come back to CTS at least once a month for our Fun Team events. We’ve done everything from zip lining to Six Flags, but everyone’s favorite event is our annual Geekathlon. That’s when our employees across all offices come together to play games, win great prizes, and see old friends.

 

You also have the opportunity to participate in various sports teams at CTS. We dominate in softball, have some of the fastest runners in the Southeast, and our soccer team is led by a former collegiate athlete. We’ve even done our fair share of mud races. If we don’t already have a team together for your sport of choice, just ask around! We always have people willing to try something new.

 

Aside from fun team events and sports teams, we provide you with free snacks, sodas, coffee, and tea to keep you going throughout the day along with games in every break room when you need to take your mind off work for a few minutes. 



        

 


Part of our mission is to give back to our local communities. We give every full time employee 40 hours per year to use towards local community service. You can do a service project as a team with other employees or do something on your own to impact the local community. CTS organizes events related to local STEM initiatives, but you can also serve other organizations that are particularly meaningful to you without having to use your vacation time!

    Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CTS (Computer Technology Solutions) (Charlotte, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Three interviews. The first interview was on the phone with HR to see if I was interested. The second interview was on the phone with a developer. This interview was a technical interview. The third interview was in-person and involved more hands-on technical questions. I was asked to write on the white board. Both Java-based and C questions. I don't know C though, so I struggled with those questions. Make sure you know data structures for the technical interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between interfaces and abstract classes?   Answer Question
    • White board question: Code to check if a word is a palindrome.   Answer Question
