Other Skills and Abilities

In addition to being an amazing Senior Web Designer & Developer / Team Lead, you’ll need to fit into our unique culture and be:

  • Self-organized. There are no managers at Geonetric. You’ll be a part of a self-organizing team, with no one “supervising” you. You should naturally get a lot of high quality work done to completion without outside pressure.
  • A doer. You need to be capable of identifying and resolving obstacles, using strong reasoning skills and creative thinking to get things done. You need to have a strong attention to detail, a drive for quality, and a willingness to see things through to completion.
  • Flexible. You need to be able to work in an environment in which there is substantial ambiguity; things change rapidly and often, and you need to adapt to new ways of thinking.
  • Self-aware.  You need to be able to see yourself and your own behaviors from the perspective of others – and understand how your behaviors affect those of your peers on your self-organizing team.
  • Driven to improve. You need to have a strong desire to be better tomorrow than you are today. You are constantly seeking ways to improve your own work. You’re passionate about your discipline.
  • A solid communicator.  You need to be able to take input from many sources, think through that information, and present concise, clear recommendations to technical and non-technical people.

Travel

  • Occasionally may require overnight travel to client meetings.
