I Am Hiring, Come Work With Me

It’s official: I have openings for Principal Software Engineer and Senior Software Engineer (React/AWS) positions to be a part of the Venture Industries Online team. I can’t begin to express how exciting this expansion is, and positions will remain open until a qualified candidate is hired.

Venture has always utilized a distributed workforce model and these positions are no exception. We provide a hyper-supportive environment where ideas build incrementally using a collaborative approach. Our processes focus on group momentum instead of individual end results to generate something greater than if one single member influenced decisions or opinions. In the end, working at Venture is all about discovering outcomes by adding to each other’s ideas.

These are immediate openings for one or more candidates to step into a key role responsible for overseeing remaining architecture development for our new flagship CRM/ticketing platform. Senior positions enjoy benefits and profit sharing. If you know anyone who may be interested in a position, thank you for encouraging them learn more and apply.

What The Work Entails

The work we’re doing is poised to be a sincere game changer in the CRM/ticketing field. Ideally, we are looking for a candidate with the following skillsets capable of filling each major area of responsibility. That work falls into these major areas of responsibilities or skillsets:

  1. React UI implementation; AWS implementation.
  2. AWS architecture design, including deployments.

Candidates with all the minimum skillsets will qualify as a Principal Software Engineer. We are also willing to break the position into a small team consisting of candidates with some, but not all, skillsets. These candidates would qualify for Senior Software Engineer positions.

You can find the full job description with required qualifications at ventureindustriesonline.com/careers/react-aws.

Application Process

Your time is valuable and that’s why I’m not going to ask you for work history information that can otherwise find in your resume. To that end, thank you for making sure your resume includes:

  1. Your three most recent employers (if applicable).
  2. Three professional references.

Don’t tell us how much your previous jobs paid. That’s just an unfair old-school tactic employers use to make compensation a race to the bottom….and it sucks. Bonus points for including something about your side projects, we seeing what makes applicants interested and interesting. If you have an entrepreneurial streak, thanks for making sure it comes out in your resume.

While these positions do not require experience in the arts and culture sector, having a connection is certainly a benefit so make sure you let us know about it. Lastly, you’re welcome to include a cover letter, but it is not required. Leaving one out is fine.

This is the fun part of the whole collaborative process; we discover outcomes by adding to each other’s ideas.

In the end, working at Venture is all about discovering outcomes by adding to each other’s ideas.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
