Mid / Senior Software Engineer
I was very close to quitting development as a career and going into something different before I began at Rocketmakers. My previous experience in the industry was just of hostile, corporate environments. It’s completely different at Rocketmakers. It’s a community, even a family. I actually care about the people I work with and I think they really care about me.
I applied because I thought I’d like the benefits, but as soon as I sat down for an interview with Richard and Keith I knew this was really different sort of place. It almost didn’t feel like an interview. They just wanted to know if I was a good fit for Rocketmakers, not trip me up or find my weaknesses.
Vince Cox Backend Developer, joined January 2018
When I was looking for a new job last year I only applied to Rocketmakers. I got the impression it was full of talented software engineers doing amazing things, and they really wanted to do good in the community. You never really know if a company is as good as you’d hoped until you get there, but I know now I definitely made the right decision. I really enjoy the fact that there is a very supportive working environment. If you have any sort of problem with your work you can go to Richard or Keith and you’ll be helped.
Nick Soper Full Stack Developer, joined April 2017
Starting during the lockdown was certainly nerve racking but I've found the process to be super smooth. I think the tools and catch ups Rocketmakers have in place to keep everyone connected work really well, and I definitely feel part of the team and well integrated. There is a focus on wellness which has been re-assuring during this odd time, and we have been constantly reviewing and trying new ways to stay in touch, which I've really appreciated.
Michaela Dennis Project Manager, joined August 2020
I’ve worked at places that have been described as ‘friendly’, but here everyone seems to be actually friends, which is a whole world of difference.
