About the team

The AIS technical team is part of the larger AIS Department at Adaptavist. We are a very dynamically functioning team that focuses on scripting, custom development and integrations, cloud and data migrations, and Gitlab support. We are a global team with our members based in the USA, Spain, South Africa, and Canada. We are looking for our latest hire to join us in Charleston, SC, USA or Toronto, ON, Canada.

Our team continually strives to be the best at what they do and enjoy dedicating themselves to producing exceptional work.
Respect and trust for each other are paramount to how we work - if we want to be the best at what we do, we need to be interdependent and supportive in every way. We put a lot of time and effort into creating a great environment in which we can thrive - physically in terms of our office space but also in how we organize ourselves. 

We are highly committed to developing our people, but we also put emphasis on self-improvement and make time and resources available for our staff to grow independently

Git in a team setting; using git workflows

We pick the technology at the start of each new project based on the best fit, and we love to use new languages, frameworks, and approaches where possible.
