At Platform45 we develop mobile and web software that not only functions flawlessly, but looks beautiful too. We do this by working in small trusted teams, learning and teaching as we go. We place huge emphasis on transparency — with each other, our partners and our clients.
We believe success is not only measured in monetary terms but on the impact a business has socially too. For this reason Platform45 practices social responsibility by only applying our expertise to ethical business practices that will positively impact on the world.
Ultimately we tell our employees that their days should be spent building software that helps people improve. Bigger dreams, better business and richer lives are being brought about, all because of the work we do.
Why work for us
We have a diverse portfolio of clients and projects that keep things interesting. We provide challenges to employees that have the ambition and drive to develop themselves.
We let our developers drive our development practices and try to be as non-prescriptive as possible.
We are early adopters of the latest open-source technologies and we believe in shipping good software that has been crafted with care and a healthy dose of pragmatism. This means giving developers enough time to do a decent job the first time.
Agile practices, TDD, pair programming and iterative development are all encouraged.
Informal but professional. We have fun and we look out for each other.
When things go wrong - as it sometimes does in software development - we rally together and get the job done. Then we learn from it and move forward.
We make software in small cross-functional, co-located teams. Teams are given a high degree of autonomy and responsibility.
We value respect, courage, feedback, communication, simplicity, commitment and humility
Our hiring process
We are looking for the right people to join our team. That means coming in to meet with us so we can see if you will be a good culture fit, which is more important than your current experience.
We are looking for self-motivated, resourceful, talented people. We value quality over quantity.
We also have a great 3-4 month internship program. It is not a guarantee of landing a permanent position, but it is a great way for a junior developer to show us what he/she is made of.
We have a diverse team with a good mix of experience levels and skills so we are able to deploy a new team member to the project that is best suited to his/her current growth path and interests.
