  • Knowledge of SQL (Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQL Server) and NoSQL (Riak, Cassandra, MongoDb, etc.)

What made you decide to add paternity to your benefits?

When you’re looking at people in their late 20s and early 30s, there are often marriages and babies, and we really needed to think about that. That’s been a part of who we’ve been since the beginning because when Chariot started back in 2002, we all had kids.

This is a very family-oriented company. We have a lot of working dual couples, and we want to support these families. Supporting our working husbands to help their working wives is really one way of doing that, so giving this benefit of paternity leave is one way of supporting women who are out in the workplace.

How does Chariot give back to the community?

A lot of Charioteers give presentations and workshops in the community, and around the nation in some cases, working with local meet-ups as well as larger conferences. There’s also a good deal of folks here that work in the community in a charitable way. With an organization called Compete 360 in Philadelphia, we introduced the concepts of design thinking to underserved inner city schools, elementary all the way up through high school. We work with the students to identify and tackle challenges that they have in their community using design thinking and the practices we put into place here every day for our work.

How does Chariot’s learning environment help the company?

Chariot has an amazing focus on the people here. What Chariot does for the team members in the way of education and support is just amazing. I think Chariot truly believes that if you hire really good people and you treat them really well, then they will in the end take care of the client. I can tell you first hand that it’s a good approach and it’s worked really well.
