The elements we care about

Pr

Pragmatism

We are business and product-minded engineers.

Pragmatism

“There is an awesome balance between writing perfect code and building an actual product that solves a problem for people.”

-Justin, API

Ic

Intellectual Curiosity

We ask the right questions to understand the landscape.

Intellectual Curiosity

“The end user and business problem we are solving is our constant guide for asking questions and making decisions.”

-Brian, API

Om

Openmindedness

We each have a unique perspective and embrace the dialogue that creates.

Openmindedness

“There are multiple ways to solve a problem, so it’s always in our best interest to be open-minded.”

-Erica, Platform

Hyper-Collaboration

We talk everything out.

Hyper-Collaboration

“If you’re the type of developer who spends the whole day isolated with your headphones on, this is not the place for you.”

-Leon, API

A better way to interview

We take a unique approach to interviewing and have been featured in BuiltInNYC for it.

Our engineering groups

Frontend Engineering

Frontend builds user experiences that allow our users to actually enjoy the myriad of tasks needed to move homes. Fast, delightful, and flexible. These are some of the attributes that our product engineers bring to their craft. They build native mobile applications, web sites and support for integrations into other web sites, and they focus on a wide variety of tools.

Backend Engineering

Tight integrations with our partners are core to fast and delightful user experiences, and this group builds services, integrations, and data management software that sets Updater apart from other companies. Building services, event streams, or data driven decision making systems – they do it all with scalability and stability in mind. 

Architecture

Plans are nothing, planning is everything. Focused on identifying the right approach to solving problems is one of the most challenging tasks. The bigger the organization the harder it is to ensure we really take the time to think about the best pattern to solving problems. Our Architecture group supports engineers by helping develop skills that are applied across the entire organization, giving us reliable consistency in how we build software to solve complex problems.

DevOps

Every line of code that moves our products forward is the one of the most valuable lines of code. Our DevOps team focuses on bringing automation and technology to provide scalable solutions to our execution environments. They also build the developer experience which allows us to automate away the repetition and focus on building.

QA

QA focuses on automation and platforms to give our engineers the best tools to write and execute their tests. Bringing new technology & thinking to old problems is how they build test suites that are stable, maintenance free, and fast.

“I love the new tools that help us solve problems in simple ways. For example, moving to GraphQL helped us have more transparent conversations around API design and simplified our view layer.”

Ankit Shah

Software Architect

I’m most excited about…

“I’m really excited about creating simple solutions for complex problems. “

Colin Rymer

Director of DevOps

I’m most excited about…

“I’m excited to see how things like KEDA, OPA, the Operator Framework, Buildpacks, and more evolve our industry and enable better CI/CD capabilities. Oh, and chaos engineering!”

Tom Biegeleisen

Engineering Director, Mover Experience

I’m most excited about…

I’m fascinated by advances in transport layer protocols, OAuth 2.0. and identity management. And, I’m always looking for better tools to build and maintain visual architecture documentation!

Abdur Jubair

QA Manager

I’m most excited about…

“I’m excited about AI and ML based automation testing solutions, self-healing technology, and auto generated functional end-to-end tests.”

Thomas Crescenzi

Engineering Manager, Frontend

I’m most excited about…

“I think a lot about web assembly and whether or not it’s the next big thing. Beyond that, I’m continually amazed at how powerful CSS Grid is and I learn something new every time I use it.”

Scot Dalton

Engineering Manager, Backend

I’m most excited about…

“Advances in cloud native, self healing, autoscaling, fault tolerant, immutable, observable systems are exciting & pose fun challenges. I’m also partial to the original bitcoin paper!”
