How to Get Hired

We asked Innovative Solutions for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

At our core, we hold true a bold set of values that move business forward: 1. BE HUMBLE, ACCOUNTABLE, AND SELF-AWARE. 2. CHANGE IS NON-NEGOTIABLE. 3. FAILURE IS REQUIRED. 4. CARE BOLDLY.   If you've got bold moves in your DNA, we’ve got work for you. It takes a certain kind of person to work at Innovative Solutions. You’ve got to be brilliantly book smart. A bad mother-coder. Intuitively people smart. A mean motivator, in the best possible way. You’ve got to have bold moves in your DNA and live to change IT forever.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Get our attention? You've got to get LOUD. Not necessarily in decibels (though that's acceptable where we come from, too), but we mean loud in a BOLD way. Engage us in ways we've never seen before. Give us REAL examples of how you've made an impact on the world. Think you're ready to join the family? You’ll need to be completely open-minded and ready for a life-changing experience. Seriously... being here will change you both personally and professionally. We'll challenge you in ways you've never experienced before. We'll give you the autonomy to try new things, and even fail at them. We'll expect you to be open to embracing the 70 hearts and minds here as an extension of your own family. If this sounds like something you would jump out of bed every morning to be a part of, check out our website to apply (www.innovativesol.com)!

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Our family is definitely growing more than ever, and each hire we make is crucial to helping us achieve our mission of uniting leaders with massive potential to change IT forever. We look for people with a certain kind of fire within them, the kind that is contagious and pushes us all to be better. We've always had the philosophy that technical skills can be learned, but passion and drive within someone is inherent....and that's what we look for. 

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

We review EVERY single applicant that comes through our system (no filters, we promise), so make your application unique and give us a feel for your personality before we even meet you. Once your application has been reviewed and selected, please trust that although our selection process is lengthy, every step serves a great purpose. We look forward to meeting you!
