An Insider's view of Saatva

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Very balanced, there is a big focus on making sure people here are able to live their lives, and if you're working late into the night or on weekends people wag their finger at you.


Software Engineer II

What does your typical day look like?

We work in an agile environment, which means we have a short stand up every morning to start our day where we check in with one another, give updates, and see if anyone can be of assistance in helping others with current work. The rest of the day fluctuates depending on what day it is. We have planning sessions and developer workshops weekly.


Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Collaboration is the name of the game here at Saatva. Questions are just as important as answers and together we find the right solutions through planning sessions, pair programming, and code reviews. If you're engaged with the problem and not just the ticket at hand, you'll see that contribution manifest in your own success as well as the team's.


Technical Lead & Senior Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

My vision for Saatva Engineering is to be the place where you can do the best work of your career. Due to our unique market opportunity we have the unusual combination of a ten year track record and tremendous growth. Growth brings significant challenges, both technical and professional, but it rewards those willing to work together.


Vice President of Engineering

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We regularly receive obscure, reports of issues faced with multiple systems and we need to be able to determine what the actual problem is and come up with a game-plan on how to resolve this and prevent it from happening in the future. Luckily, on my team, I regularly surround myself with some of the most knowledgeable developers to help me.
