Welcome to another installment of “The Factory Wall,” where we share news and updates about company growth, employee strengths, our technologies and other news.
As we continued to see increased digital adoption and even more demand for software engineers, our team was able to stay almost fully remote during the entirety of the year while still providing high-quality results for our clients. Our office in Costa Rica was available for limited-capacity workspaces for employees to work outside of the home, and for our human resources, operations and recruitment teams to utilize, as needed. With a growing recruitment team and through ongoing virtual interviewing and networking efforts, First Factory officially reached over 200 employees. This was an especially rewarding milestone as we, like everyone else, had to navigate pandemic uncertainty. Our leadership team remained open-minded and flexible, putting the health, safety and comfort of our employees at the heart of all decisions.
The tremendous growth that we experienced led to multiple new positions and promotions within the company including a Director of Client Experience, Director of Engineering, Associate Director of Talent Acquisition & Development, People Operations Manager and several new Engineering Manager roles. Each newly created role and promotion within the company provided our employees with even more resources for mentorship, leadership and career coaching. We were also able to consistently provide internal and public First Factory “Tech Talks,” which allowed employees to educate each other on emerging technologies, career best practices, challenges and lessons and more.
Several changes and implementations helped us have another incredible year, and we’d like to share a breakdown of the current software engineering roles and specialties at First Factory.
