Competencies

 

Teamwork
We are a small, growing development team based in Reno. Some days we design, plan, and discuss as a group. Other days, we’ll put on some music and focus on writing great code. Teamwork is a major part of our day-to-day.

 

Communication
Hand-in-hand with teamwork, our developers need to be able to communicate their ideas in person and in print.

 

Desire to learn
Silverthread is creating tech to solve problems that haven’t been solved before. Using tech born from over a decade of research at MIT, we’re constantly expanding our capabilities as a company, as a team, and as individuals. A developer with a desire to grow as they work will flourish here.

 

Future focused
We know all the code we write will be maintained and re-used for several years. Our integration-first, testing-focused development cycle is all about making future development a breeze. As our CEO says, “go slow so we can go fast.”

 

Design Intuition
The ideal candidate will have the ability to understand how the end user is going to use our tools and reports. We aim to delight our customers and stress an intuitive, easy to learn interface.
