We are vetting IT employers
I SUPPORT TRANSPARENCY
I’m a programmer and I have been observing the IT job market for 10 years now. During this time, I became familiar with various companies from the inside - startups, corporations and software houses alike. Based on my own experience and a research made with 1466 IT experts from all over Poland* I know that the best employers share common features, ones that make them not only a good source of income, but also a source of satisfaction and development. Those are the companies you really want to work for.
How to identify a good employer?
- Cares for development
- Pays well
- Does things that make sense
- Creates a work environment that does not tire you
- Focuses on achieving a common and clear goal
- Gives you ways to impact what you do and how to do it
- Employs professionals from whom you can learn
- TCreates code that can be developed further, not one you have to fight with
Based on these features, I developed the Top Tech Employer certification. For those that need help and who are thinking about changing their job but are not sure about their choice. To accomplish this, I visit companies and talk with both programmers and managers. During meetings, I ask about the working environment, processes related to software development, code quality, development opportunities, as well as overall job satisfaction in the project. During these conversations I actively look for enthusiasm and the sense of jointly creating something that matters. If everything is in order, the company gain the benefit of trust in the form of a Top Tech Employer certificate.
I'm not interested in fruit wednesdays, beer in the office or monthly foosball tournaments. I focus on what is most important, gathering knowledge about the employer firsthand - from the employees themselves.
