Do you love helping people use tools to build great things?

Lifion is looking for a Developer Evangelist to work closely with ADP's development community to make the most of our in-house application development platform and toolset.

  • Interest in moving away from pure development into a product focused role

 

Preferred Qualifications

An Insider's view of Lifion by ADP

What are some social events your company does?

There are lots of events constantly going on at Lifion! From meetups to tech talks to our weekly Thursday happy hours, there's a good mix of work and play. We also do outings: in my one year of working here we’ve done laser tag, Barcade, happy hour on a boat, the vessel, a picnic in central park, escape the room, VR world, and more.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The People Ops Team is in full swing for FY19 Performance Reviews. It's an exciting time for the business, but requires a lot of backend work & support for our associates. We're drafting communications and timelines for management & associates, and creating the right process to gather ratings and self-assessments for a great associate experience.

Quinton

Director, People Operations

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have been able to work with many different teams since I started here and have grown tremendously. I have worked with new product teams, Reliability teams and now work with Security and Compliance teams. This experience has enriched my technical and product knowledge, and I get to be part of the teams which are solving complex business problems.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is best fueled by collaboration, and has two simple ingredients: First, you hire passionate & talented people, people who care about users and who want to solve meaningful complex problems. Then, you support a culture of openness, with every designer constantly sharing their best ideas across the whole org. That's how creativity thrives!

Chris

Head of UX

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success on our team is enjoying ownership over our work while staying open to suggestions. We have an open-door policy to share knowledge with one another, strengthening us individually and as a team. We check our egos at the door and are lucky enough to be surrounded by people who feel like family more than coworkers.
