We are a local Maryland based company that provides engineering, software development and analytic services. We hire engineers that desire mission driven tasking, working with other smart engineers and recognizing a better way to tackle a problem.
How to Get Hired
We asked Visionist, Inc. 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?
First and foremost, Visionist looks for employees that are passionate about the work they do. We want employees that will constantly strive to expand their knowledge. Interviewees that can speak enthusiastically about projects, hobbies, or interests always appeal to us, even if that topic isn’t directly related to the work they’d be performing for us. We pride ourselves on having engineers that will jump at any opportunity to solve our customers’ toughest problems. Potential employees must possess an innovative spirit and be comfortable embracing challenges. It is important to us that an employee fits the Visionist company culture. Honest communication and enthusiasm are cornerstones to our success; we want employees that will feel comfortable collaborating with team members, will take pride in their team’s accomplishments, and will feel comfortable speaking up when they have issues that need to be addressed.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Be enthusiastic! We want you to be as excited about the potential of joining our team as we are to have you there. Care about the quality of your work! What sets us apart from our competitors is the level to which we pursue the best solutions, not just the fastest or most adequate. Be willing to challenge yourself as much as our work will challenge you! If you are not eager to tackle difficult problems, Visionist probably isn’t a great fit for you. If you appreciate opportunities that are highly visible to clients and have a high impact on real-world problems, you will feel right at home with us.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In the next year, our hiring priorities will stay the same: we want to find top-tier engineers that have passion and enthusiasm for their work, and want to join a team of peers that work equally hard. We want to continue to grow our company at a methodical pace, to find new opportunities that are exciting and interesting to our team, and most importantly, never lose sight of the phenomenal company culture that we have established. We want leaders, good communicators, and pragmatists.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
If you know a Visionist employee, talk to them. Ask them about their work, the company culture at Visionist, and what brought them to us. For those who haven’t heard of us or met us before, visit our website and Facebook page. You’ll be able to read about our technical expertise and benefits, but even more importantly, you’ll see what Visionist employees do on a daily basis that has helped solidify our reputation as a great place to work. We’re immensely proud of every hackathon, publication, social event, and team building exercise you’ll read about, and you can rest assured that we’re only getting started.
