I have been working at Dom and Tom full-time (Less than a year)
Dom & Tom, the founders, are the embodiment of integrity, and genuinely care about the software and products that they build. The people and the culture of DO GOOD BE GOOD really is a thing and I promise I am not a shill.
For an agency, there are quite a few challenging and interesting projects beyond that of simple crud apps. There is also a genuine interest in emerging technologies and an openness to discuss and use new tech where it make sense.
For a Junior - Mid Level Developer - Dom and Tom is an excellent place to learn how to build web applications, deployments, best practices, and sometimes what not to do ಠ_ಠ. There is always a focus on learning something new. Most of the dev here are passionate about something and are willing to teach you.
For more Senior Developers, its a great place to learn software life cycle management, sprint planning, client interactions, and software estimations. There are also challenging projects that require architectural or scalable solutions which are rewarding to work on.
There are many talented people here (especially the designers, product, and UX/UI people).
There is not really a culture of gossip, backstabbing, anything like that, I have never felt that way. The people are what make this company really great.
- Software development process needs improvement, but there have been strides to standardize the development process, in terms of team structure, and frameworks/tools.
- Always work to be done, can feel overwhelming at times, but over all its rewarding when everything works and the clients are blown away.
- Some not so nice clients, but i think that is just agency life and it comes with the territory. Sometimes you get clients that are just amazing to work with and it's a rewarding experience.
Advice to Management
- Continue to DO GOOD BE GOOD and maintain the culture you have. You're people are your best asset.
- Don't let bad actors derail projects, address non-team players sooner.
- Continue to improve development process, standardize development practices.
I applied online. I interviewed at Dom and Tom (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.
Quick turnaround with app submission and them calling you for the phone screen. Then was told would proceed to next step with more senior level person the next day. They never followed up and I had to continuously email them to get updates. Seems like a very disorganized process and not a place that values the people they are considering.
