How to be successful with remote work and Clevertech
Technology Is the New Cultural Identifier
We’re aware that solid engineering practices and our love of Agile principles aren’t enough to ensure that we translate our clients’ dreams into software that shapes the world.
Our team of over 100 developers and designers are what make it possible.
First of all, it's all remote work. You can be anywhere in the world!
You don't have to experience time-consuming commutes and get to enjoy working from wherever you want, with whoever you want (be it your family, friends, strangers, or by yourself).
With Clevertech, you become part of a team of top-notch developers. We're talking people who have worked for or rejected offers from companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Adobe, and the likes.
All this knowledge is shared and we're always looking to use the most recent technologies and trends. We want you to experiment, fail, learn, and improve.
If you show us leadership potential, we'll include you in our leadership program. It's like personal development on steroids.
Love speaking at conferences? We can sponsor that!
We always try to make sure you enjoy what you're doing.
We employ flexible agile and lean techniques to all projects, while keeping track of the technologies you love working with, and the ones you don't like so much.
Every month we have a CleverFriday, where everyone shares their thoughts about what's getting them excited lately about Clevertech and where we should improve.
The feedback we get here is great and allows us to continue growing, as a symbiotic and synergetic whole being.
I have been working at Clevertech full-time (Less than a year)
I have worked remotely for over 15 years. Clevertech does this style of work better than any company I've worked with in the past. Clevertech is a great place to work for many reasons:
Remote! (if that is your thing)
Management trusts their employees.
Management is engaged with the employees
Management invests in their employees.
Management is genuinely interested in their employees' happiness.
Very competitive salaries.
Good benefits package.
Fairly flexible schedule ... within reason. You are part of a high-talent team.
Work with top talent from around the world.
Remote work is not for everybody. Generally, you need to be a self-starter, good with remote communication tools, fairly organized, and occasionally available to work odd hours due to the worldwide team structure.
These aren't really what I consider cons, but you need to make sure working remotely fits your MO.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing. Your recent initiatives to help your workforce improve their knowledge and home-office work environment are fantastic.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Clevertech in November 2018.
The whole process consisted of an online questionnaire, a few recorded video answers (to video questions), a take-home software test, then after those a few live phone (or video) calls with a recruiter, then the president, and then the CEO. The software test had a three hour time limit and consisted of multiple parts: a Redux project that needed issues fixed, a multiple choice quiz about programming, and some SQL or database testing (can't remember the details)
