Our Connect engineering team places very high value on quality and stability, so expect to join a professional team that practices proper TDD and cares about code quality. TrustYou’s culture takes learning and development very seriously. As soon as you’re ready – and maybe even a bit before – we’ll involve you in writing technical specifications and architectural discussions. Also, we care about keeping our engineers close to the market. As part of a “squad” that also contains salespeople, you will have the chance to work together with market-oriented people, if that is what you want.
