Reasons to Join SoftTeco
When you sign a contract, you do so with SoftTeco and we are responsible for your workload. That means, when a project comes to an end, the company will find another task for you. It can be a new project or a suggestion to take some time to master your skills because your expertise and knowledge are among our core priorities. We are interested in maintaining long-term relationships with all our employees and always give them an opportunity to learn, try other positions, and even switch departments if they feel they will bring more value this way.
Lack of bureaucracy
The main goal of SoftTeco’s managers is to help you work effectively and in an uninterrupted manner. Thus, we ensure that every employee focuses on their tasks instead of never-ending reporting and bureaucracy. The company provides convenient tools for tracking your working hours, and it provides various opportunities to communicate directly with our C-level executives. This allows us to quickly adapt to changes, receive direct feedback, and eliminate any guesswork and hints from the communication between the company and our employees.
Strong engineering culture
Our professional development programs ensure continuous knowledge transfer and education. Our software engineers pay great attention to expanding their knowledge and skills via various options that the company provides. We strongly encourage mentoring, participation in meetups and external conferences, and self-education via suitable courses. SoftTeco’s unique corporate culture centers around engineers, and we strive to help them excel their skills in every possible way.
Room for mistake
Everyone can make a mistake. What’s really important is that you realize why it happened and how to make it better the next time. A SoftTeco’s employee is the one who cares about perfecting their work and who knows there is always room for improvement. Our employees understand that you should ask questions, express one’s opinion, and move forward without fearing disapproval. And if SoftTeco makes a mistake, point it out, and we will do our best to fix it.
If you have successfully passed an interview with SoftTeco and there is no suitable project for you yet, we will transfer you to the Virtual bench (upon your agreement). That means, your profile is added to our internal system where all projects are managed. Next, we will propose you to the clients in the same way we propose our employees. If a suitable project appears, we will offer it for your review.
