At 500Tech we believe in great development and the process of always improving. We work on helping you grow technically, try consult clients, become a public speaker, and start teaching others. Nothing beats working with other super smart people who are really passionate about technology.
We believe in a flat hierarchy and no needless managers. Beyond being a great coder, you will be a product and project manager. Our developers work directly with clients, plan and monitor their work. You’ll need to be responsible, autonomous and pragmatic.
After a short phone call we may invite you to visit us at our office. You will sit with one of the technical people and try to write some complicated code together. There are no whiteboard challenges or homework, unless you really want it.
We don’t build websites, we build complex web applications in different domains with very different feature sets. Our goal is to stay top experts in latest front-end tech and help companies build better software. Our developers are creative and curious when confronted with a hard technical problem.
Most of our projects are about building a product from the ground up to a fully production application. However, not only the software, but the code itself is our product; other people will work with it after us, so we have to maintain high quality, testability, and extensibility.
We use the latest versions of advanced frameworks:
We don’t accept projects based old technologies like jQuery, Backbone, or AngularJS and develop our own development tools to stay productive and effective.
We organize meetups and conferences. Many of us are also frequent public speakers. This helps stay on top, build new connections, and learn and develop new best practices. We support and encourage public speaking and social engagement, starting with weekly
We are not a startup, so we don't work overtime. However, many of us do programming at home just for fun. But we also care about you having a life beside work and programming.
Among our hobbies are snowboarding, surfing, embroidery, urban gardening, brewing beer, west coast swing, remote controlled aircrafts, and cooking.
