In General We Look For…
Although the details of a position at Silverpond will depend on the kind of work being undertaken, we value several traits highly and they can be considered applicable across all roles…
At Silverpond we’re interested in a wide range of domains and appreciate colleagues with similarly diverse interests. A diverse set of interests and skills gives perspective, prevents echo-chamber effects and allows us to think outside of the box. That being said, we also value having deep expertise in at least one area. This shows that an individual is capable of digging into the details, theory and perculiarities of a subject when required.
The ability to focus on finding a solution to the problem at hand is very useful to us. Although we love thinking about the theory behind what we’re currently working on, we are pragmatists at heart. Especially when working with clients, we find it valuable to design effective solutions quickly, and improve upon them to design elegant final products.
Communications / Collaboration
One of the bedrocks of our organisation is clear communication. Everything from the meetings and events that we hold, to the software that we write is intended to communicate in some fashion. As consultants, we are both facilitators and problem solvers. Effective communication is not only part of our day-to-day, it is what set us apart.
The ability to take initiative and start initiatives is a big part of what it means to be a Silverponder. This refers to our role in the both the workplaces as well as the communities that we participate in. We appreciate strong opinions backed by deep understanding on which solutions are best, as well as a passionate drive to see them through.
While we run several internal groups, public meetups, workshops, and have the opportunity to pick up a great deal of knowledge on the projects which we work, a powerful thirst for knowledge and learning is a trait shared by Silverponders that has helped us all become proficient in our work and interests. If you share this with us then Silverpond is very flexible in helping you not only build your knowledge, but also apply it and turn your interests into your work.
We are committed to diversity. We would like to see a more balanced tech community, and strongly encourage women and people of all backgrounds to apply.
If you think you can bring something new to our team then we would love to hear from you!
