At mgm, we solve tough software challenges with innovative problem solving and crazy talented colleagues, all for the love of exceptional technology. Our values speak to how we operate differently as a company.  

1. Invest in the neighborhood you want to live in

Work is where you spend a majority of your week; shouldn't it be a great place to spend time? We believe that healthy spaces are paramount to efficacy in the office. Each office is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and wellness equipment (like bamboo standing desks and balance boards). We select our office locations carefully, emphasizing an easy commute for local employees, lots of sunlight, and ample greenery. 

Our office is multicultural and multinational; we work across time zones and cultural expectations. That's why we've designated English as our primary working language so that all employees can communicate openly and effectively regardless of physical location. Some locations offer free English language training as a part of employment. 

2. Seek and honor the truth

Truth in business isn't always attractive; truth means turning down projects that pay well when there are ethical objections to the product. Truth means admitting to a customer when there's a problem, even if that truth is embarrassing. Truth means choosing radical candor over pleasantries even when it’s uncomfortable.

We have a truth-first culture; it’s critical to how we sustain a flat hierarchy. Interns are just as expected to share their ideas as the CEO. We work on projects until they’re done right, we say no to projects if we’re lacking resources or interest, and we sustain a culture where employees solicit and provide feedback to each other as a part of everyday work.

3. Think big

We make the software that powers big, disruptive businesses. We think in the radical long-term, asking: What will the world look like in five years? What should it look like? We’re dreamers, and we know that the solutions we build should always stand the tests of time.

Thinking big also affects how we hire and treat our employees. We’re conservative with our spending, careful to make sure that we can keep all our employees in the face of a major international event (like the Great Recession) and through minor small problems alike.

4. Applaud great work

We celebrate our victories as a team and host regular office-wide events to show appreciation for our colleagues, and go out of our way to call out the great things our team members are working on. Our projects involve creating cutting-edge technology for world leaders in business, and our people are the backbone of our success.  

5. Be you by design

We believe that cookie-cutter career paths are the stuff of the 1950s—we don’t invest in hierarchical career ladders nor do we promise time-earned (instead of value-earned) promotions. We believe that every mgmie is charge of their own career. That’s why we believe that every senior staff member should serve as a mentor, and that every mgmie should invest in upskilling and training to become the best version of themselves that they can be.

We’re also sensitive to the reality that personal circumstances matter. We celebrate marriages, give space for bereavement, and work with our employees to design a schedule that’s right for them and the business.

Ultimately, we value giving our employees the independence to thrive. We don’t always know what that specifically is, and we lean on our employees to ask for what they need when they need it.

We take on interesting, long-term engineering projects from big-name clients. We work with cutting-edge technology, brilliant people, and sustain a startup-like culture with the consistency and security of a 25-year-old company.

Our development team at mgm technology partners builds, improves, and maintains global systems that major brands rely on daily. Some of our customers have included Audi, HP, Siemens, Yahoo!, DHL, BMW, Nespresso, and T-Mobile.

mgm technology partners engineers are experts in:

  • Custom enterprise software development and deployment
  • Backend server and architecture buildout
  • Software integration support (microservices, API, and data integration)
  • Tailored and maintained product information management (PIM) systems
  • SAP Commerce Cloud/Hybris
  • Enterprise mobile solutions for Android and iOS
  • UI/UX customizations
  • Legacy application modernization and data migration
  • Big data analytics, custom business portals, and smart search tools
  • Internal and external product marketing consulting and collateral

Every project starts with the customer and with the project—we know that every undertaking requires a balance of the right people and the right skills to create the right team. Once that team is set, we individualize our Scrum/Kanban-based approach to the project and use Atlassian Jira to organize communication across the team. Further, every person at mgm works both vertically (project-specific) and horizontally (skill-specific), creating clusters of experts that serve interdepartmentally. These skills include topics like UX/UI, data science, and cybersecurity. These horizontal teams serve as internal consultants, and are in charge of creating best practices and testing new ideas to benefit the entirety of the company.

We rely on Agile frameworks (namely Scrum and Kanban) and DevOps processes to continuously produce and deploy high-quality code.

Of course, that high-quality code is partly dependent on the technology we use daily.

  • Java/JEE
  • JavaScript
  • Typescript
  • React
  • Angular
  • Redux
  • SAP CX (Hybris)
  • Hadoop

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at mgm technology partners.

    Interview

    Process took about a month from application to hire date.

    -Applied online, received an email about a week later for a telephone interview
    -Emailed a coding challenge a couple days later (no time limit and you're able to use Google to look up methods, documentation, etc)
    -Received a telephone call a week later to schedule interview with lead developer
    -Final interview with CEO a week after first interview

    Applied online from the company website and was emailed about a week later for a telephone meeting with a recruiter. The telephone interview asked the basic behavioral questions (what I'm looking for in the company, goals for the future, explain things on my resume, rate my java ability, etc). At the end of the interview I asked what the next steps were and the recruiter told me that she thought I'd be a great fit and would send me the coding challenge in a few hours. I had to email her the next day to actually get the challenge which was a java file that had errors....the task was to fix it. After my submission I was contacted a week later for a meeting with the lead developer. This interview was more technical. I was shown methods and asked what they did, ways they could be improved, or any problems that could arise from the code. A week later I was contacted for the final interview with the CEO. A mix of behavior and technical. The technical I was shown an example of what a client wanted and asked how to I would implemented it (no coding, more of a pseudocode/explaining my implementation process). At the end I was asked salary range, when I would be able to start, etc. I received the offer letter a few days later.
