I'm a tech lead at a company called Wireless Generation. We're a tech
company focusing on the education market. Wireless Generation is
largely agile, full of very smart developers, treats employees well,
and is a great place to work. Our products are in 10% of schools
nationwide, and the company is growing by around 33% every year.
We'd like to hire impressively smart people who are strongly grounded
in software fundamentals, people who really care about crafting
software and learning as much as they can. We have positions open for developers, PMs (Scrum Masters), and QA. The technologies we
front end technologies, but there are a lot of different technologies
used at the company. We don't care so much about the specific
technologies a candidate knows - just that whoever applies is good. We
are fairly exclusive, using a five stage interview, which means
developers at the company are good. It also means we don't accept the
vast majority of applicants.
There are a bunch of bragging rights at the company, like our head DBA
wrote the O'Reilly SQL Cookbook, teamwork and a good attitude are a core part of our company
culture, the office is on the top floor with
decks, free juice and soda, a young and West-Coast feel to the
company, etc. Overall this is a great place to work.
If you're interested in applying, please contact me directly so I can answer any questions you may have and refer you to our HR dept.
And fyi, I've been a member of the XP Meetup for about a year.
