Life at DockYard
As a fully distributed company we’ve found a formula that works. We truly believe and practice a work-life balance which allows us to create our best work. Ever heard of a DockYard Friday? Take every Friday to work on fun internal projects, learn a new skill, or maybe get involved in our diversity group.
We aim to improve human capabilities through our own projects, our internal tools, and the many user experience challenges we take on.
A diverse set of challenges for every project keeps us on our toes. This encourages adaptability, but also creates a deep respect for core processes.
Everything we do for DockYard and our clients provides an opportunity to help the community of engineers and designers that we are proud to belong to.
Working together drives our curiosity
We blend our knowledge and skill across disciplines in an effort to both teach and learn from ourselves, our clients, and our greater community.
A distributed team that collaborates
We're a geographically diverse team and we work where we live. We make this arrangement beneficial for everyone and provide unparallelled freedom to work in a way that’s most productive for the individual.
Always creating and growing
The web application landscape doesn’t stand still. We know where the web is going (and, in some cases, we’re leading the way). We’re able to ensure our customers and community are ready to take full advantage of that future.
We learn, teach, and mentor
Our continued ability to solve the most challenging business problems stems directly from our curiosity, respect for diversity, and the varied experiences of our team members.
Regular get-togethers keep us connected
As a fully remote company, we fully utilize our in-person events to strengthen the connection and team spirit that’s required for all to work well together. We take the time to get to know each other in person, and provide team activities to do so well. Past and scheduled get-togethers have included amazing food, sports, tropical locations, skiing, and an entire island all to ourselves for a conference in New England.
Focus on quality
We compete on quality — this means there’s not a stressful amount of pressure to meet unreasonable expectations. We project-manage towards specific quality goals, then let team members participate in planning their work ensuring the best possible result.
We trust you
We hire responsible and caring people that we can trust. This is how we continue to do great things together. We practice paired design and programming on many projects, inspiring a great sense of camaraderie along the way.
DockYard values its 100% remote workforce. We’re a remote-first company. This means we’re proactive sharers, flexible schedulers, and generally cheerful collaborators — no matter where we’re working from.
