What You’ll Be Doing

At Fictiv, we help product innovators to create.  Fictiv brings a modern, friendly experience to manufacturing that makes it easy to turn designs into real products. You will use the latest technologies (React, Redux, Apollo GraphQL) to iterate quickly and ensure a rapid feedback loop between us and our customers.

Desired traits

  • Customer focused – You have deep empathy for humans and embrace the joy that comes from making things. You connect that passion to technology to bring fast, delightful user experiences to life.
  • Technical curiosity – You are hungry to learn and improve as a professional engineer. You have a beginner’s mindset and proactively seek out opportunities to better yourself and your code.
  • Growth-oriented – You believe growth and learning come from trying new things. When you make mistakes (we all do!) you own it and pitch in to make things better.
  • Team-oriented – You thrive in a collaborative environment and are energized by sharing ideas openly and adding to the ideas of others.

What It’s Like to Work at Fictiv

We’re a small, close-knit team with a core group in San Francisco and a few remote engineers around the country.  While all engineers need protected time to get things done, we also believe collaboration and creative tension create the best product. That’s why we encourage a rhythm of heads down, independent work followed by focused constructive debate.

Product development teams follow the principles from the Scrum Guide.  We’re practical about process (we use what works), but we’ve found Scrum ceremonies to be a positive framework for transparency and collaboration. To save time, we keep Sprint Plannings to 1 hour and Sprint Reviews to 45 minutes for our two-week sprints.

Since we are a small team, all engineers (including managers) are on-call for two weeks out of every 8-10 weeks. This builds team cohesion and deepens our understanding of our production system. We are all here to support one another, so if you have personal events during this time we’re happy to swap slots or cover for you.

We’re constantly evolving our practices, so please feel free to ask questions and share your thoughts as well!
