Why work with us
Great software development starts with great requirements and are developed by great business analysts, great usability people, great testers, and awesome developers.
At VisionFoundry we seek out the best and brightest people and we know they don't always come with a computer science degree. We've filled our team with a talented assortment of teachers, lawyers, historians - and of course, IT professionals - who are all passionate about user-focused software design and development.
Does that sound like you? If so, read on to discover the benefits of working with us.
Escape the Dilbert cube
Software development companies often complain about how difficult it is to find good technical talent. It's no wonder when they condemn their best and brightest people to a bland cubicle! At VisionFoundry we've put a lot of thought into creating a work environment where our people actually look forward to spending time.
All our furniture is mobile so it can be configured on the fly to create joint areas for collaborating. We have offices with real doors that can be closed when you need to put your head down and think deep thoughts. Our kitchen is well-stocked and you'll frequently find a puzzle on the table in need of solving. We have flat-screen TVs for keeping in touch with the outside world or when you need a really big monitor.
Flexible working arrangements
We know that even the most dedicated employees have lives outside the office. So at VisionFoundry we give our people the flexibility to work from home. We don't think you should have to use your annual leave to take care of a sick child or because you have to wait for the cable company to show up.
Off-site doesn't mean out of mind
A lot of our projects are for the government and sometimes they require on-site work. But when our people are out of the office we still keep them in the loop. We visit our off-site team members weekly, have monthly on-site staff meetings, and make sure they always feel supported by the VisionFoundry team. We understand the importance of being a part of something, so we negotiate our contracts to ensure on-site work is balanced with time at our HQ.
Let's be honest - if you're good enough to work here you're probably already gainfully employed elsewhere. So before you even think about switching jobs we advise you to consider whether you would enjoy working at a small, results-oriented company such as ours.
To help you appreciate VisionFoundry's corporate culture we've put together a collection of some of our shared attitudes, experiences, beliefs, and organizational values for you to "try on". If you feel the fit is right we should meet!
