Xola & What We Do

  • We engineer like scientists and we build only after we've taken the time to deeply understand our customers' problems. 
  • We design like artists and there's a purpose behind every pixel, every key-stroke. 

In both cases, this helps us create robust, easy-to-use solutions that stand the test of time. Knowledge + Beauty = Powerful software.

We want to do the best work of our career at Xola and we seek others who want the same. Doing our best work at Xola means we have a shared understanding of how we should all show up everyday for each other. 

You’ll be in good company with us if you espouse these values well in a professional setting. 

  • Empathetic: Dedicated to customers, perceptive & anticipatory, caring, good listener, and good vibes. 
  • Beginner's mind: Curious, learner, courageous, critical thinker, creative, and challenges status quo.

  • Black belt: Domain expert, focused, get shit done, reliable, thoughtful and thorough planner, “gritty” & perseverant, teacher, good judgement, and impactful.

About Your Role

Our products are completely API driven which allows for an incredible amount of flexibility and creativity around the ecosystem we build. We love experimenting with new technologies and doing mash-ups with our APIs and would expect you to be imaginative with them also.

We consider design and usability to be paramount for the success of our product -- both, for our front-end app and our APIs.
