Pillar Technology Senior Software Engineer in Des Moines, Iowa
WHY PILLAR? WHY NOT?
Pillar Technology is a high-tech consulting company taking marketing and strategy by the horns, with an unmatched company culture. Inspired by the inventions of the future, we fuse software craftsmanship, creativity and innovation together to solve our clients’ most challenging problems. And the driving force behind it all? Our people—the Pillar family.
SOFTWARE ARTISAN, WHAT?
Our developers are called “artisans” because creating software not only requires technical knowledge, but also skilled artistry and craftsmanship. Our software artisans are successful because they have:
Practice getting their hands dirty in Agile development practices including test-driven development (TDD), continuous integration and pair programming.
Superhero powers in consulting, collaboration and communication.
Experience cranking out mobile applications and desktop solutions in true Agile environments.
An advanced understanding of object-oriented design and development principles including SOLID, DRY and CAT (OK, we made that last one up).
ARE YOU A GAME CHANGER?
Our mission is to provide an environment where people do what they love and feel empowered to influence change. Of course our open and flexible workspaces, fully-stocked fridge and pantry help create a thriving work ecosystem. But we also support this goal in ways that can’t be contained within four walls—so whether you are working at a client site or at home from your patio, the Forge mindset goes where you go.
“No-constraints” thinking—we’re talking “change the world” kind of thinking.
Team members who push you to succeed, because they expect you to do the same for them.
Diverse and changing work environments.
Learning, sharing and working closely with other team members because we take the “two heads are better than one” saying very seriously.
A “Speed2Value” approach to solving problems and delivering value.
Open communication across the company—direct, expert and personal.
Active participation in Agile and software craftsmanship communities and we hope you do the same!
