Build a career that fits your life

At Intersect, we believe in sustainable development and that working fast doesn’t have to come at the expense of a healthy work-life balance. With over 40 team members, the Engineering team is the largest and most diverse team at Intersect, meaning you’ll be supported in not only your professional success, but also your personal growth.

We work with end-to-end development cycles, building everything from prototypes to fully integrated production builds. Our Engineering team includes mobile developers (Android & iOS), front-end web developers, back-end API developers, DevOps engineers, solutions architects, and QA.

How we work

We often get the luxury of building from scratch as we tackle new problems. We put in the effort to seek out and utilize the best-in-class open-source technologies and frameworks. We peer-review work and ship code daily through continuous deployments. We also hate solving the same problem twice so we automate where we can and share our learnings with the team (we have created tons of lightweight tools to optimize our workflows).

Peer ReviewWork closely with a peer to ensure code quality
Daily StandupsTouch base with the larger project teams

Get exposed to different problems

We do a lot. We have clients in healthcare, fintech, insurance, education (and some that would be better explained in person). This means our team gets to tackle all sorts of problems and learn from them. You could spend a month building serverless chat and tackle challenging distributed systems’ protocols, or you could be reshaping retail with engaging mobile experiences - no challenge is ever the same.

Grow as a professional and as an individual

We encourage personal and professional growth of our team though guidance, mentorship, weekly one-on-ones, and coaching. We promote a safe environment where it's okay to take risks and fail, so long as we learn from mistakes and share insights across specializations - that's how we learn to better overcome them in the future.

Our engineering lifecycle

Collaborate with the larger Intersect family

You can expect to work closely with not just the larger Engineering team but also other teams at Intersect. Our objective is simple: build amazing products fast and furiously and do it better each time.

Typical Engineer's Schedule

Daily Standups

Daily communication

Standups are quick and actionable meetings meant to provide feedback and communicate project blockers. Standups are a good way to touch base with the larger project team (design, strategy, product management, etc.). We like to keep these short and sweet, because we don’t like too many meetings.

Tribe Meeting

Progress within specializations

Whether you’re an Android expert or a back-end developer, your speciality falls into a “tribe”. Tribe meetings grant teams the autonomy to discuss how their tribe can work better, improve pain points, and align on standards without relying on official approvals.

Lunch & Learn

Shared learnings

We like to eat and we like to learn. We promote a culture where we encourage everyone to give back and teach on topics they are passionate about. On Wednesdays our lunches are catered (“on the Horse”) and often this is a great time to also learn something new during a Lunch & Learn. Recent topics have included "Machine Learning: Buzzword or Friend?" and "Winning Hearts & Minds - How to Present your Ideas Effectively".

Agile Activities

Fail fast and adapt

We are an agile organization. You can expect to have regular sprint planning sessions, sprint reviews, and sprint retros as part of development cycles.

Work with real problems

At Intersect, your work actually matters. Our products are sexy, but they are also useful to the masses. We are helping companies make huge waves in industries like finance, health, insurance and more. We are changemakers.
