Do you have an innate desire to know how things work? Can you determine the technology serving this website in 30 seconds? Do you know a dozen powers of two off the top of your head? Do you love open-source software, and have given back by pushing bug fixes? If so, you might be happy here.

The goal of the Signpost engineering team is to create defect-free software at maximum velocity – while loving what we do. Our work is challenging and interesting, our coworkers are world-class and driven, and our culture is collaborative, humble, and results-oriented. We aim for minimal process overhead because we prefer shipping software to talking about it.

We take pride in our work and have real ownership in our company and our product. Every one of us has an enormous impact on moving Signpost forward. And while our team has an average of 12 years of experience, we love to learn, and software engineering is an art we're continuously striving to master. But we're also known for having a bit more fun than we probably should.

    I worked at Signpost full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training is first class and hands on. You get the opportunity to be a closer in an entry level sales job. As long as you are ready to be coachable and put in the work, the passion of the training managers will elevate your skill level and overall confidence in life. It is also rewarding to sell a product that actually works (given you sell to the right business) and helps small business owners survive in today's environment.

    Cons

    There is limited mobility upwards for a fast-growing company. It is easy to burn out in the 4-8 month period because it is hard work and the role does not evolve.

    Advice to Management

    Create a four-day work week structure for top performers so they stick around longer and there is something to look forward to for reps in month 3-12.
