Fortitude Systems – Why Work For Us?


Working Hand-in-Hand for Long-term Success

With constant innovation and the emergence of new technologies, competing to attract top IT professionals has never been more challenging. Our close relationships with the technology workforce, internal research, analytics, and our knowledge of the IT talent market, enable us to provide a crafted solution to each individual client. Our partners view us as advisors that look out for their long term success.

Our expertise and consultative approach often expose areas in our client’s current hiring methods that aren’t conducive to hiring top talent.
We are committed to working side-by-side with our clients to find, develop, and retain the best possible candidates. Some of the initial steps we take include:

  • Gather skill-set requirements with hiring managers and team leaders, while also evaluating the environment to ensure our candidates fit into the company's culture
  • Provide insight into local and non-local national wages for any given skill-set to ensure that the requirements align with the talent market rates and salary
  • Gauge business, team, and performance goals to ensure that we find people whose values coincide with our client’s
  • When needed, define new skill set requirements that keep pace with the market
  • Develop talent pipelines and strategies to ensure future needs are met
    Streamline information such as career growth opportunities, company benefits, incentives, and any other selling points that may attract and retain the top IT talent

We Hire the Best and We Grow with the Best

Fortitude is a consulting company with locations currently in Washington DC, Chicago IL, Dallas TX, Denver CO, and soon to be in Atlanta GA. Our specialization is within the technology field (ex. Software Engineering / Information Technology). Our clients span across a breadth of industries including, but not limited to: Finance, Healthcare, Energy, Media, Logistics and many more. Although we specialize within technology, a technical background is NOT needed because of our in-depth training programs and focus in personnel development. We are driven by our client relationships, and provide them with industry leading solutions under the umbrella of systems integration, process development, and technical augmentation.

We are a dynamic company that continues to identify highly-talented individuals for our relationship consulting teams, operations teams, or marketing teams. Our company is always looking for intelligent, personable, and team-oriented individuals to add to our growing nucleus. We are actively seeking future partners that are looking to make an immediate impact on our growth. Our culture is comprised of close-knit relationships, mentoring, training, and team camaraderie. Leadership positions are incentivized to ensure not only their growth, but the growth of every employee.

WE TREAT YOU RIGHT

Yes we work hard, but we play hard too – with a dedicated employee pool that plans regular group outings for golf, kayaking, paintball, BBQs, professional sporting events, brewery outings, etc. We have generous incentive trips, along with office trips throughout each year.

OUR VALUES:

Never Stop Learning - We embrace change and use technology as a tool to make lives better.
Trust in the Process - If you do things the right way, then it isn’t “if” the results come, but "when."
Find the Win/Win - We want to build business partnerships that last forever.
Leave It Better Than You Found It Make your team better than it was without you.
We work hard every day so that our customers and consultants can focus on getting their jobs done, without the added stress of building out their company.

    I have been working at Fortitude Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I just got back from a trip to Cabo San Lucas, the leadership team took about 40 people. My takeaways:
    - Great value add's in BlueROCK and Meritas. These branches will open up a lot of business for the family of companies.
    - Great people. I don't love everyone I work with, but they are all really solid people that I get to work with each day.
    - My mentor goes above and beyond.

    Cons

    - No major cons, company is growing vertically and horizontally and figuring out those challenges as they go.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for continuing to re-invest in the company.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fortitude Systems (Dallas, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    One person called me around five pm and when I called back the next day I talked to a different "recruiter". I knew more about the software platform they were looking for an SME for. I had to explain to him what the software does and the evolution of the platform and the differences in the application of the elements of the product suite.

    He told me at the end of the call that he was going to hand my resume to the account manager and that the account manager would call me back the next day.

    After hearing nothing at all from them for four business days, I emailed the guy I had talked to for an update.

    He ghosted me. This ghosting thing is rampant in the recruiting world and it is absolutely unacceptable and unprofessional. If they ever called in the future I would not engage with them and would not recommend them to anyone.
