As a product-driven company founded by engineers, we know the value of a great engineering culture built around a product with a clear user need. Our experienced and collaborative development team was built from the ground up on trust, teamwork and solving our customers' problems.
Our engineering values
Our engineering team lives by a set of core values. They’re not just nice words—they’re values that guide us through day-to-day challenges and are the foundation of how we work together. We’ve distilled the things that make engineering at Gearset what it is, and these keep us accountable to our own high standards.
How we work together as a team
Our engineering team is focused on delivering value for our customers in a pragmatic way while maintaining our high standards. We’ve built a culture of trust, transparency, collaboration, and feedback, where everyone at Gearset is given the autonomy to succeed and trusted to do good work. This means you can try new things and challenge yourself and others in a safe environment to help you deliver your best work.
You’ll make a difference at Gearset
Our engineers are able to have a big impact from the moment they join Gearset. Our minimal hierarchy, streamlined processes, and focus on delivering features that solve real user issues, means you’ll see the direct impact your work is having.
Most engineers that join us ship a valuable improvement to our users in their first week, which means you’ll be solving interesting user problems from the word go. The whole app is released to production multiple times a day, to deliver value to our users as soon as possible.
Growing your career at Gearset
As an engineer at Gearset you’ll collaborate with really smart individuals across many aspects of the app: whether that’s frontend, backend, integrations with third party tools, infrastructure, or different features within the app with differing levels of maturity. You’ll also own features end-to-end (product management perspective, implementation, design, test, release, etc). All our engineers have the opportunity to grow and learn new things by collaborating with really smart people, moving between teams as well as working cross-functionally with other departments.
Everyone at Gearset has the opportunity to develop their skills and expand their knowledge through courses, management training, or at conferences with the annual £1,500 personal Learning and Development budget.
