What does MineralSoft's Engineering team value culturally?
At MineralSoft, our engineering team believes in building a culture based on shared values:
- You communicate openly with respect: In software engineering, there is rarely one ‘right’ way to solve a problem. As engineers, we are expected to understand the benefits and costs of our solution and solicit feedback from our peers in design reviews and code reviews. Whether we agree or disagree, we expect our team members to openly state his or her opinion respectfully. This open, respectful communication allows us to collaborate to build better solutions and helps us improve our craft.
- You seek challenging work: When looking for the next feature to work on, you review the backlog and look for complex and/or difficult issues first. You embrace working on these problems because they are interesting, impactful, and enable you to learn and improve as an engineer.
- You have a passion for learning: As software engineers, we need to constantly learn to improve our craft. We expect that you already spend time learning new patterns, methodologies, and tools. Further, you also spend time in critical thinking about what you’ve learned, identifying what you think is right and wrong, as well as why.
- You believe in results: In development and interactions, results matter. As a person and an engineer, you are empowered to take action and thus are accountable for your actions. While your decision-making process will be supported by the team members and leaders, you are ultimately responsible for creating positive results and you hold yourself accountable to this.
