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.

    Pros

    If you're looking to develop tangible, transferable skills in sales, then Signpost is an excellent entry opportunity into that world. As long as you're willing to work hard with good ethics, you'll be given opportunities to expand your skill set, learn valuable communication, presentation and persuasion skills that you'll use throughout your career, whether you continue in sales or not. One awesome aspect is that the executives always had an open door - if you wanted to walk in, talk to them about how to advance your career or be successful, for mentorship and advice in their field or share ideas for the company, their door was always open for mentorship and guidance - even if you weren't a part of their department! *This of course goes with the disclaimer that by "walk in" I mean you communicate / schedule some time with them, obviously they're very busy running their departments / the company*

    Cons

    Signpost is a start up. What that means isn't the "Hollywood" version where it's all cavalier, fun-loving situations and glory growing up in the tech industry and taking on the world (and I sincerely doubt any start-up is like what hollywood shows depict them as). What that means is that there is a global vision for the company's direction and a common culture to get there. There will be pivots, changes in the 'details' of operations, organization and work-flow to best suit the best need of the company with the times and evolution as the company grows. It means there's a lot of grit and grind and change. If that doesn't suit your personality, then save yourself the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep evolving the strong core culture!
