An environment that cares highly about the quality of the code and good practices. We’ve suffered enough without them!
A fully remote work environment - our team is global and has been remote from the very start!
Occasionally, we hire on a full time contractor basis to begin with. Team members enjoy the same opportunities for great compensation, full time positions, and consideration, regardless of location.
Work in the open: Operate with high integrity and choose what's right over what's easy. Be transparent as a company and with each other.
People are People: Treat yourself, colleagues, and customers with dignity, empathy, and respect. Start from a presumption of positive intent.
Win and grow together: Strive to be the best, individually and as a team. Support and encourage each other. Seek opportunities for growth.
Shogun supports workplace diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender identity/expression, national origin, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, physical or mental disability, or any other protected class.
The interview process is generally 3 or 4 video conference interviews. For many positions we will also ask for 3 references, and contact all of them. Some roles have a paid test component (i.e. design test for UI designers) or a short contract period (i.e. 1-2 weeks engineering contract work at a premium hourly) before final decision. The interview process is generally 1-3 weeks depending on the complexity of the role. If we end up passing on someone’s candidacy, they will receive a polite email notifying them of our decision. For more sensitive circumstances, or situations where we might feel the candidacy may be valid for a future role, we would give a call.
We are a 100% remote, global team that values a high degree of transparency and collaboration. Across the 20 countries where we have team members, we promote an asynchronous environment where people can learn and grow from each other and complement each other's strengths. Shogun is committed to listening and learning from one another and we are continuously growing and making improvements to our efforts around equity and inclusive practices.
