  24. 24. noHR Hiring - What are you offering? • "We expect our developers to do much more than just writing code – Help our clients to achieve their real goals—questioning the requirements, understanding why they are asking for it and how it contributes to their real goal. – Deliver new features every few days. – Develop a one-button-click infrastructure to deploy the applications into production. – Share knowledge by pair-programming with other developers. – ........... We don't like heroes and hierarchy. Our developers are the ones conducting all the interviews.

This is our way to give something back." 22 22Friday, 8 March 13
