Our Promise to Employees.You bring the passion, smarts, and personality; we’ll guide you on your path to success.
Why you’d love it here.
You look forward to Mondays.
Your job isn’t just a paycheck to you – you take pride in your career. You get to work with emerging technologies, and we’ve got great snacks and a gym and all that sort of stuff. But if you ask folks here what sets us apart they will tell you: “Best group of people I have ever worked with. Hands down.”
You want to make your mark.
Dive into challenging projects, perhaps participate on a cross-team strategic initiative, and be recognized and appreciated for your contributions – by our customers and our team. You’ll be given freedom to do great things, with guidance from your manager in weekly 1:1 sessions and a truly agile, collaborative work environment.
You’re hungry to learn more.
Not just through formal training events, but integrated in your everyday – lessons learned sessions, employee-led lunches on specialized topics, with budget and hours allocated to training. Plus when you’re working with brand new products and technologies, continuous learning is simply the nature of the job!
Why you’d hate it here.
You enjoy doing the exact same job for years in a row. Stretching your mind and having new experiences is simply too uncomfortable. Versatility and you have long parted ways. “Stasis” is your personal mantra. Your sense of personal space feels complete only when framed by the fractured landscape of cubicles.
Your sense of being and identity is derived primarily from domination by pointy-haired bosses who only occasionally remember your name. You prefer the safety of obscurity by being one of thousands at SuperMegaUberCorp. Being accountable, being honest, and having personal integrity never were your strong suits.
Tales of real-life Sharpies.
Linda - Doing what she loves.
“I always manage to weasel my way into doing the things I love,”says our Solutions Consultant, Linda Kemper, with a mischievous grin.
Linda “weaseled” her way into 3Sharp a little over 2 years ago as a Solutions Consultant, specializing in developing creative demos for her clients.She currently focuses on the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit, where she helps tell their stories of the exciting fight against cybercrime. Her role at 3Sharp utilizes her unique skillset: a marriage of her creative passion and technical know-how.
Why does she love working for 3Sharp? “3Sharp recognizes talent, even those yet untapped talents, and fully encourages growth and creativity. I’ve been able to unleash and grow here in ways I could not have imagined!”
Tom - Finding work-life balance.
Tom has a vast background in IT security management spanning just over 5 years with the United States Army. Seeking a better work–life balance, Tom joined 3Sharp as a Cloud Technical Consultant, affording him a flexible schedule and remote-working options. When he’s not developing compelling guidance around Azure Security systems, you can find him outdoors fishing, shooting, and golfing.
Mike - Still climbing.
Mike joined the Sharpie team in 2007 starting as a Software Design Engineer, and is now the Director of Technical Marketing and Demo Services. Throughout his years at 3Sharp, Mike has continuously learned and gained new perspectives enabling hi to better his approach on a variety of projects, taking on new and more challenging roles. Now he empowers his teams to do the same, to better tell our customers’ stories in new and exciting ways.
“It is inspiring to be surrounded by a team of such smart and talented people – we can learn from each other every day.” -Mike Rand
