  • Design, develop, and deliver amazing software solutions
  • Encourage and promote innovation, development best practices, and solid lifecycle processes
  • Collaborate with your team on work definition, estimation, and prioritization - you’ll be part of a small team that enjoys a lot of autonomy

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Flexibility, patience, and ability to adapt in a rapidly evolving organization
  • Self-starter, team player, and a knack for taking on complex engineering challenges
  • Meticulous attention to detail; working knowledge of QA principles and best-practices

Who you are:

  • Being detail-oriented isn’t just a soundbite for you, but one of your genuine qualities.
  • You know what ‘fast-paced’ really means and you embrace it.
  • What you don’t know, you’ll jump right in and learn. You can teach yourself whatever you need to know and you’re not afraid to go find solutions to difficult problems that crop up. Technology is your friend, not your foe.
  • You never say “That’s not my job.”

  • A gorgeous, bright office, conveniently located in Downtown Minneapolis.
  • A fully-stocked snack bar and drink fridge to keep you fueled.
