Grio designs, builds, and deploys high quality web and mobile apps for a wide variety of companies and industries.
Why join us?
Grio is a 100% private, 10 year old, profitable company with >10M in revenue and 25-30% annual growth.
Grio has grown based on word of mouth alone. We started a marketing practice last year and are beginning to see a growth inflection as a result.
We take a long term view, so quality and reputation are more important to us than growth.
Engineering at Grio
All members of the team are client facing (we try to operate in a very transparent fashion with clients). Developers get assigned to projects based on skillset, experience, project need, personal preference, and other factors (resourcing is hard!).
We run 1 week sprints and daily standups. All devs have a primary focus (Web, iOS, or Android). We try to keep meetings to a minimum, get out of the devs' hair and use slack as the primary mode of communication throughout the day. The environment is very flexible here - it's all about getting the job done and doing great work for our clients.
We encounter a vast array of challenges. The projects are very diverse. Sometimes a client is looking to move fast to build a prototype or MVP. In other cases a client might have marked scalability challenges. We approach every project differently based on the client and their needs. At the start of every engagement we try to understand the unique challenges that the project will bring, and how we need to adjust our approach as a result.
Build a greenfield React Native consumer app build with 2 other devs for an MVP rollout. Work closely with the client who has a backend dev on their side. We do the design, pm, and client side dev. The client provides rough requirements, signoff, and works collaboratively with us on an API.
Create dataviz and backend for EEG waves that can be analyzed to predict seizures. EEG data is streamed from device to backend (written in Node). It can then be visualized using a React-based client.
Work with 4 other backend devs on a billing overhaul for a large sports subscription site. Work involves integration with another part of the client enterprise's API's, ensuring stability during the rollout and testing a fallback plan. The project is important. If we fail a lot of money is on the line for the client.
Working at Grio
Grio has a very laid back culture. This is a no bullshit, politics free place. We do great work for clients; then we go home and forget about work. We welcome any and all who can get the job done - if you are nervous that you might not fit in to a typical organization, please give us a try. The feedback we get from our employees is that this is a very unique place to work. In the surveys we send out on a regular basis we get top marks for culture and flexibility.
