Skills: You are an engineer who can develop mobile software for connected products. At Punch Through, this goes beyond just turning specifications into code. As a design services company, we work with clients at all phases of the product life cycle. This means your work will likely touch architecture design and specification development as well. Regardless of what you’re working on, it should be approached with careful consideration of engineering tradeoffs between technical fitness, scope, and schedule in order to make decisions that best serve the client’s needs.
Communication: At Punch Through, we believe in transparency, not only as a company, but as an approach for working with clients. We value clear, honest, and frequent communication. As an engineer, you’ll contribute to and potentially lead the communication of technical details and project direction with our client stakeholders.
Curiosity: We believe that if you aren’t curious about how the world works or you don’t challenge expectations, then you will never grow. Our team members relate with each other in large part due to our passion for learning and growing.
Independence: You’ll work as a developer on real mobile software projects, so you must be motivated to operate and work independently. With that said, we are huge believers in collaborative efforts, so you can expect to work with an engineering mentor who will provide guidance and act as a resource for support and assistance when necessary.
Collaboration: We know that when we work together, everything is better. At Punch Through, collaboration is our preferred approach. As an engineer, you’ll work with teammates from a variety of disciplines to accomplish a range of tasks. This includes technical tasks such as evaluating engineering and architectural approaches for systems that include components from embedded electronics to firmware to mobile to web.
Growth: Be great today, be better tomorrow. One of the unifying characteristics of the Punch Through team is a drive for continuous personal improvement. As an engineer at Punch Through, you’ll work in an environment that leads to technical and non-technical growth, both organically through work and communication with others, as well as through a structured, focused approach that involves mentorship with a senior engineer.
Part of creating this environment of growth is making sure people feel comfortable to ask questions and make mistakes. As such, all our engineers strive to be ego-free and focus on working together with the team and clients, not against. Punch Through is a place where people feel comfortable saying what’s on their mind. All team members are encouraged to share their thoughts, regardless of whether it is specifically related to their position. This includes contributing to the continuous improvement of best practices and processes within the software engineering team and participating in the growth of the overall company culture.
