Praxent Software Developers

How we work

We work in small Scrum teams who have the freedom to improve and create big things. Your success is measured on the quality of each sprint’s outcome.

We know that “slow is fast” when it comes to delivering quality: code reviews, automated testing and continuous integration are essential to our development process.

We partner directly with our clients and get to know their business and pain points before architecting a solution. You will be “client facing” in various capacities throughout a project.

At Praxent, colleagues are more than coworkers. They are teachers, mentors, public speakers and lifelong students. Praxent’s culture is built upon recognizing the knowledge and vision of each team member. We interact regularly to share ideas big and small, recount lessons learned and keep each other on our toes.

Life at Praxent

Voted one of the Best Places to Work in Texas four years in a row, we’ve worked really hard to create a great workplace and culture.

At our weekly team huddle, we share the wins of current projects, unite around quarterly themes, and “cheers” individuals for their accomplishments.

Team members collaborate on projects, sometimes pair programming, sometimes user testing to ensure work is done right the first time.

Clients often attend meetings in person at our South Austin office, but many prefer web and video conference. All meeting rooms are setup with cameras and Zoom.

Team members venture out for Burger Friday, we host a weekly Practice Lunch, we relax at Praxent Socials and families join quarterly celebrations.

We host quarterly hackathons where teams experiment with new technologies and tools including robotics, facial recognition and machine learning.

Tim Hamilton (Founder) and Kevin Hurwitz (Managing Partner) care deeply about the satisfaction of the team, the core values and the success of our engagements.

We’re looking for people with a successful track record of consulting with all kinds of clients.

You should be comfortable in any layer of the technology stack and have the confidence to advise clients on how to leverage technology to meet their business goals. We hire developers because of their potential and whether or not they are a cultural fit in addition to their technical proficiency. We are looking for engineers who want to take responsibility, deliver results and make a difference.

Ideal candidates:
