The position

Working at Savas Labs

At Savas Labs, we prioritize a few things. We like people who are enjoyable to work with. We like to learn from and teach one another, and often the result is others learn as well either via blog posts, conference prezzies or social media. We dedicate time each week for self-improvement, socializing, and collaboration. We encourage a flexible work schedule so long as we are upholding our commitments to one another and our clients. We value openness; you are encouraged to be vocal about not knowing something, and fix it. We are very honest, yet very respectful; this is not a cut-throat environment. We take a lot of pride in the quality of our work. We value a work/life balance that keeps us productive and happy. We like to have fun and we take our values seriously. We use emoji a lot :+1:.
