Commetns from the current team

“The emphasis on modern development techniques, like TDD and pair/group-programming is one of the best things about being in the team; especially when working remotely. From the first day, you can be in a group and contribute to coding and discussions right away; as well as getting to know the rest of the team and learning the domain as you go.”  

“I’ve really enjoyed the variety of applications we’ve built for clients to support Oakdoor products. The wide variety of programming languages and tech stacks we’ve used have meant that I’ve always been learning something new.”  
“Oakdoor is a well-managed team of people who are great to work with. The project excels in agile practices and principles and is a great place to learn.”  

“The team is super rigorous when it comes to writing clean, testable software. I feel like I’m developing habits that will serve me well for my whole career.”
