Engineering at FastModel Sports

We are serious about our jobs, but have fun every day at the office.  You'll be given a lot of freedom to innovate with our sales and support people as well to interact directly with our clients.  Our primary maxim is "simplify and go". You'll fit right in if you can:

  • Deliver code quickly, but avoid creating technical debt.
  • Keep up to date on the latest software trends, but avoid fads.
  • Simultaneously teach and learn from others.
  • Create user experiences that are intuitive and self-explanatory, but unfold to reveal multiple layers of increasing complexity.
  • Be an all-star without a big ego.
We are an open-minded group and welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
