Qualifications

Knowledge, Experience and Skills:

If you've been to design school, great! If you have had software development training, great! If not, show us what you've done. If we're impressed, we will hire you. (Bill Gates never finished college.)

We build large web sites and portals, develop content and document management products, design stunning web sites, obsess over usability and user experience, and engineer half-million-dollar software systems.

Northwoods does its development work in-house. We are not a staffing firm. No new cubicle every six months. No bench. You work with the same 40 really smart people day-to-day. They're (mostly) very friendly and they all like beer. Projects change regularly so it's nevcer boring.

Compensation & Benefits

The Benefits:

Travel is very limited and 98% in SE Wisconsin. We offer great benefits including 401(k), great salaries, free Starbucks coffee and parking, and professional development opportunities. Northwoods is an Equal Opportunity employer.

We have created a free and relaxed work environment. No micro management. You can do what you want with your work space, dress the way you want, and even work from home if you need to.

Our cultural values are built on the following 5 pillars:

  • We learn something new each day 
  • We trust and value each other 
  • We hire people, not just skillsets 
  • Our families come first 
  • We each grow in our own way 

All employees get two monitors, the latest hardware, free popcorn on Thursdays and the occasional lunch during collaboration sessions. No need to wear shoes around the office. The boss doesn't. We also have kids and dogs occasionally running around the office. (Yours are welcome if they don’t make too much noise.) We celebrate our client successes, believe in professional development, and empowering our people.
