It takes a special type of person to work at RedMane. We have far more than exceptional technical abilities. We’re purpose-driven problem-solvers who enjoy finding answers to interesting problems. And we truly care about helping individuals and businesses through innovative software solutions.
When Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana, we were asked to create reports and update the Child Support Database using USPS address forwarding information. This would help displaced parents receive their child support payment and other necessary documents, and give them uninterrupted service amidst the chaos. We knew our team made a difference.
RedMane has helped me grow in many ways. I have learned that it is important to treat people with the same respect and professional courtesy that I would like to receive. I have learned to set goals, always reach for more and never become complacent. I have learned to always go that extra mile.
We developed an automated process to help the Hawaii Child Support Enforcement Agency recover money that was sent in error. This was a highly collaborative design process with the state. It was great to see this process work successfully, and it was easy to see its effectiveness in time saved and money collected.
It’s not about titles, but the roles you play from project to project, as you develop a ‘big picture’ understanding of the system development life cycle. Opportunities to interact with all types of customers reinforce the importance of listening and responding to customer challenges before designing innovative, appropriate solutions.
RedMane gave me an opportunity to move from Chicago to Vancouver, B.C. Since doing so, I’ve had the pleasure of helping set up a brand new office in a brand new country. That’s pretty cool!
I was nervous about working for a company that didn’t use titles. After ten years, I’ve had the opportunity to try, and be successful at, multiple aspects of the business. I’ve progressed from being a good individual contributor to someone who can bring people together, grow the business and mentor others who are just starting out … all of which gives me great satisfaction every day.
