About Yet Analytics

Dev Team:

Our current team of 4 full-stack developers works primarily in Clojure(+script). Experience in Clojure (or another Lisp) is not required, but candidates must be willing to learn on the job as required.

We follow a loose agile model and track work in pivotal, though employee performance is not assessed solely through tracked activity.

Work Environment/Culture:

Yet's office is relatively casual. We use an open layout to facilitate collaboration and communication, but also recognize the need for uninterrupted work time and provide space for this. We value teamwork and brainstorming, and use white boards to excess. We collaborate across teams on a regular basis, and use a daily morning all hands checkin to keep us all on the same page.

We value honesty and respect, and demand critical thinking and commitment to delivering high quality work on time from all our team members.

Who We Are:

We are a team of nerds.

We are artists, engineers, and explorers.

We believe in the power of technology to build the future we want to live in, and we work to make that reality, every day.

We call Baltimore home, and we care deeply about the future, our city, and what it means to be human in a world surrounded by technology.

We're dedicated to the design, build, and analysis of data at the highest levels. Because understanding your data is much more than just knowing that it's there. It's about being able to visualize and speak about it in a language that bridges the gap between humans and machines.
