Chatham has a relaxed, yet demanding environment, where, refreshingly, people have just as high expectations of themselves as they have for others. We strive for self-governance and aspire ourselves to be aligned with Chatham's core values: Acting with Honesty & Integrity, Respect for Each Individual, Doing Excellent Work, Working Together and Building Long-Term Relationships. Chatham is an Agile development shop, using Microsoft technologies (.NET) and HP QTP. We develop applications for in-house and external use in partnership with expert end users. Our software is highly technical in order to match the complexities of the business.
Some highlights of our work environment:
Agile software development methodology with Scrum
Two week sprint cycles, with release at the end of each cycle
Quarterly 'hack weeks' – similar to 20% time at Google – where teams build projects they are passionate about
Highly collaborative work environment
Open work space
Whiteboards used daily
Debate and respect are not mutually exclusive
We would rather be governed by principles than rules
We work as a team across all areas of the company
Casual dress; wearing a suit does not make you work harder or smarter
We like to have fun too!
