Become a Part of Our Mission

We provide our clients worldwide with technological expertise and customer service that exceeds expectations, while helping them gain a competitive advantage. We accomplish this by acting with integrity, accountability, and developing our employees to their full potential. We’re always on the lookout for individuals who align with our core values and who want to have fun in the process.

Screening, Training, and Mentoring

We’re committed to screening and recruiting the very best talent available — we only hire the top 3% of software engineers. In addition to testing for technical excellence, we assess each candidate’s cultural fit. We design our interviews to identify individuals with strong communication skills, a “team player” mentality, and a commitment to excellence.

Before engaging in client work, our junior developers must complete an extensive training process that emphasizes software best practices in test-driven development, pair programming, Agile SCRUM, Kanban, and XP. Code reviews and testing automation tools confirm that new hires meet pre-set goals and support Sphere’s commitment to continuous integration and delivery. These rigorous requirements ensure that our team members are productive from day one.

As part of our mentoring program, junior developers work with senior engineers who guide them through all aspects of a project. Our 360° Academy further exposes them to cutting edge technologies and strategies related to coding, testing, product management, and UI/UX design. Junior employees also receive regular reviews through Chairlift.io, a performance management SaaS solution we designed to heighten engagement and assess accomplishments.

In addition to day-to-day client work, we’re incubating a number of SaaS solutions, mobile apps, and consumer websites in Sphere Labs — our in-house training and R&D center. All of our team members have access to this hands-on experience, designed to encourage ideas, foster innovation, and support employees as they pursue their passion projects.
