Since 2002, Chariot Solutions has been a premier tech consulting firm in the Philadelphia area, with a reputation as the place to be for software developers who want to grow their skills without corporate bureaucracy.
With Chariot’s penchant for in-house learning, employees — Charioteers, as they call themselves — enjoy professional development both continuously in the office and on Chariot Day, the company’s annual series of presentations, workshops and lessons led by Charioteers, where topics range from machine learning to mechanical keyboards to meditation.
An emphasis on both professional development and personal touches recently led Chariot to add a benefit for the firm’s new parents: paid paternity, maternity and family leave. Along with flexible schedules, generous PTO and a casual office environment, the new benefit is one way that Chariot is working to move the needle both in terms of technology and in its people-first approach.
Charioteers also have a deep commitment to the community, and the firm recently received The Philadelphia Inquirer’s 2019 Corporate Philanthropy Award, with Chariot winning the Most Charitable Award — Volunteerism. In addition, by making resources available through company blog posts, podcasts, and presentations, Chariot continues to support the developer community at large.
Whether in the office or working from home, Chariot’s developers have helped grow the firm from its Java and open source software development roots and into cloud, IoT, smart home and mobile projects. Today, Chariot has a large need for new developers.
