Written by one of our Software Engineers:

“Working at Wealth Wizards as an engineer lets you experience an ideal environment for developing applications and working Agile.

Everyone has a voice in every discussion and whenever you get involved you contribute and learn something new. Your own ideas are always welcomed and considered and it’s satisfying to know that your contributions help shape and improve what your team is working on. Getting something wrong is extremely satisfying too; nobody judges, everyone is open to questions, and everyone is good at helping you learn.

Their attitude towards the technology they use is very exciting. If anyone thinks of a way to improve some aspect of the applications or they way the teams work, they are encouraged to take the time to bring that idea to reality. Moreover, others join in and everyone’s ideas come together to create the best environment for the whole team to work in.

Agile at Wealth Wizards is everything I hoped it would be. The way it’s implemented in each team is always improving based on what everyone in the team learns and on what best fits the tasks at hand. It’s always enjoyable to work because we all understand and agree with why we work that way.

Finally, everyone is understanding of each other and being around the rest of the team is genuinely nice. Everyone treats each other as equals and is excited to help and to work together.”
