An Insider's view of DAT

What's something quirky about your company?

Think one giant melting pot of friends working towards common goals. Over the years they've really become more like family. You'll always find people doing something to bring a smile to someone's face - whether a personal hand written note, "Flannel Fridays", or team themes like Reefer Magnus from Transformers. You never know quite what to expect!

Lindsay

At DAT we have opportunities to work with smart people who care about the quality of their work. I have a direct impact on company culture and engineering practices. Our leaders do a good job engaging and trusting employees with real-world challenges while providing opportunities for professional development and career growth.

Michael

Product Development Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

We have an open door policy, good communication up the chain, and managers who genuinely care about seeing their employees' careers flourish. We have Professional Development Plans and do regular 1 on 1's with managers to discuss anything. I comfortably talk with my manager about career plans and steps we can take to get me there.

Caleb

Principal Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I empower my teams by creating a safe space where individuals at all levels can challenge and learn from each other. I believe that only when people are open and honest in their communication can the best solutions can be created

Brian

Engineering Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

It's exciting that we're moving into the Denver area because it shows our commitment to growth, innovation, and finding the right people to do the work that we see as the next steps to grow our brand. The Denver office is "next level." It will push the technology boundaries in comparison to our traditional DAT products.
