The philosophy of the Core team
  • Here on the Core team we take pride in writing our own framework/library instead of using a buggy and inefficient 3rd party library that will restrict us in the future.
  • We focus on low memory consumption and fast performing code.
  • A lot of the time, it’s more about a good idea on how to solve a task rather than coding itself. At the end of the day, nothing beats a well-thought solution and a sense of accomplishment after making a difference.
  • Since we deal with money/numbers/formulas/calculations, ability to focus and rigorous testing are essential. One needs to be meticulous to think about 100s of different scenarios/configs/settings.
  • Communication is the key.
  • You will be placed in a fast paced environment with an abundance of opportunities to grow and wear multiple hats.
  • Informal company culture where the result is rewarded.
