We are a small Atlanta software consulting company that has a backlog of work and more on the horizon. We need someone to come work with us on software stuff.
Some SQL experience is the only hard requirement – if you know HighJump Software that’s a plus. The technology is a proprietary stack, so we’ll teach you everything you need to know.
We build and implement software for supply chain management. Think big warehouses, grocery stores, manufacturers, etc…
You should have an interest in logistics and supply chain to work here. You also need to be able to string a sentence together and be somewhat conversational. Some days we’re in an office talking to a CIO – other days we could be on a warehouse floor with a foreman.
We dig it. You should too.
We’re not afraid of newbies. We want someone who is smart and has a strong work ethic. You’ll learn more here in six months that you will in five years at some big company.
We’re not into micro managing. We’ll teach you, but you also have to have a passion for learning on your own and developing your skills.
Once we get you trained up, you’ll work on cool projects with some pretty awesome people. Some travel required. How much? Hard to say… Some months will be a few days and others could be a few weeks. Don’t worry, we’ll probably be traveling with you, and nobody wants to get burnt out.
What we need:
Cool person with a worker mentality. We’re jeans and t-shirt guys who carved our place in this world through hard work and good attitudes. Prima Dona’s need not apply.
Some SQL. You don’t need to be a ninja – just basic queries, joins, etc.
Good energy. We spend a lot of time together and we like to enjoy our work.
What we offer:
Cool place to work.
We take care of everyone on the team.
Dog friendly offices in Virginia Highland.
You pick your own equipment (Apple, Windows, whatever you want).
VelocityChain Welcomes new Managing Partner – Jack Record
January 14, 2015
I am very pleased and excited to announce that effective January 5, 2015, Jack Record has joined me as a Managing Partner here at VelocityChain. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jack now for almost 10 years; first as a business colleague and then later as a trusted friend and confidant. Over the years I’ve seen firsthand the tremendous value that Jack brings to the organizations and people that he works with. Jack brings with him a unique perspective honed from years working in software development, sales and business development. His experience and relationships within the global agile community are second to none. I have every confidence that Jack is the right person at the right time to help VelocityChain succeed and scale in our mission of bringing agile delivery to the supply chain technology world.
Welcome aboard Jack! 2015 is going to be a great year!
Are you a software developer who is quick witted and good at thinking on your feet? Are you the type of person that thrives on solving the difficult problems that others give up on? Do you enjoy working directly with customers in fast paced and dynamic environments, where everyday will be a little (or a lot) different than the last? Do you want to work in role where you can see first hand the immediate value that your hard work helps to bring to customers? If you answered yes to these questions, than VelocityChain would like to talk to you.
VelocityChain is a project delivery and development services company that is focused on building and implementing high quality and high value supply chain and order fulfillment solutions. Our office is in the Virginia Highlands area of Atlanta, GA. We offer competitive salary with bonus, health benefits, paid time off, and a fun and flexible working environment.
We are looking for a talented developer to help us grow our supply chain consulting and implementation business. The ideal candidate will be someone who is technical, confident, quick thinking, humble, willing to learn and not afraid to ask questions. You will be asked to wear multiple hats and to not be afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone to experiment and try new things. You’ll be expected to be a self-motivated, disciplined get-things-done type person. Most importantly though, you’ll be someone with strong communication skills, a great sense of humor and you won’t be a jackass (at least not all the time).
First VelocityChain will identify, define and form your project team. Everyone on the team will understand what it means to be part of the team: their role, the team’s expectations, and the shared vision that brought them all together in the first place.
We start planning by first defining what success looks like for your IT project. What are the overarching goals, constraints and milestones? Who will benefit, and what can we do quickly and easily to make progress toward a specific business problem? Together we prioritize “just enough” work into a project backlog so that development and value delivery may begin right away.
VelocityChain uses a value-driven approach to “git ‘er done’ – or should we say, “JIT ‘er done?” We use smart, effective project management and collaboration solutions to eliminate waste and promote transparency. All of the decisions, requirements and tests the team will need are documented. Then we dive into execution using modern agile engineering practices:
• Test driven development
• Centralized code management
• Continuous integration
• Automated regression testing
• Performance and load testing
As people start using your features, there will be discovery of new, missing or changed requirements. VelocityChain’s review process embraces this as an awesome opportunity to improve. You’ll have everything you need to prioritize, plan and accommodate frequent changes in customers’ priorities – while evolving success in future projects through continuous inspect-and-adapt processes.
Our technical consultants ensure that you release value at a manageable rhythm. When you’re ready to roll, we make sure all of the pieces are in place for a smooth rollout. This includes:
• Deployment of any remaining software, outstanding testing and training
• Onsite, around-the-clock support
• Delivery of all relevant project artifacts, plans and IP
• Vendor transition for long-term support
What We Do
VelocityChain is where agility meets the supply chain. Where customers’ needs take precedence over elusive, drawn-out plans.
It’s like that two-year highway widening project... By the time they finally finish, there’s a whole new traffic problem with different requirements. Lots of time and capital are spent, but they still missed the mark on requirements.
Supply chain management projects suffer from the same waste and failure. At VelocityChain, we enable you to plan and deliver value incrementally. So you can meet change with agility and efficiency, from concept to high-value supply chain IT solutions.
