We’re a web and mobile product development consultancy based in Baltimore, MD. You’ll always be learning and surrounded by smart people.
We strive to create an environment where everyone has the freedom to create the best products for our clients. What does that mean?
Our team is always improving our process. Have an idea for how to work smarter? We want to hear it. We’re constantly looking for ways to build better software with less stress.
No separate project management. We know you do your best work when you control the deadlines and client expectations. There are no layers in between you and the client: you have ownership of the project.
We emphasize communication. We have daily standup meetings, constantly hang out on chat, and encourage open and honest communication, both internally and with our clients. This reduces stress, improves your work environment, and results in better work.
We’re looking for engineers who can handle the full process, from client communication to implementation.
Excellent technical skills. We are looking for developers with significant hands-on experience and smart developers who are early in their careers. You can hit the ground running, or grow into your full potential.
Independence and drive. We have a systematic process, and we support each other, but there’s no hand-holding here.
Control your destiny. We expect our team to team to take ownership of their projects. You have the power to make decisions that will lead to the best work for our clients.
Communication skills. Because we don’t have separate project managers, you must be adept at putting technical problems into plain English.
Housed in Canton’s iconic Atlantic-Southwestern Broom Company building, SmartLogic is a model for Baltimore offices. Natty Boh posters grace the walls and the third floor office at 3500 Boston Street features plenty of natural light, picturesque cityscape views, and plants – everywhere. The space has a homey feel, with a couple couches and even some workout equipment for downtime. And the best part? Even dogs are welcome in this office.
The schedule at SmartLogic honors work/life balance for Baltimore residents and commuters alike. Slack brings together remote staffers and in-office teams through a daily 10am standup (SUP) meeting when team members report what they’ve been working on and any assistance they may require. They also hold a weekly all-hands company lunch. Working remotely? SmartLogic has you covered: mounted screens are readily available for remote employees to be able to join HQ via Skype.
Diversity in both ethnicity and in thought is widely encouraged at SmartLogic, inviting experts from outside the company to talk about leading technologies, and encouraging employees to discuss any side projects they’re working on.
Company president Yair Flicker sets the tone for company culture saying, “Priorities-wise, it’s give people a good place to work, build your business, and do good work for your clients.” You can find Yair and his team spreading this mantra with advice on hiring cool people who do great work, hosting “Lunch and Learn” sessions at Baltimore Innovation Week and sharing a day in the founder’s life via Snapchat takeovers.
