Career options

We are looking for teammates who have versatile software skills and the mindset of an entrepreneur. You need to have a background in one or more of these technologies:

  1. Programming - Python, wxPython, React, Git, Bash
  2. Cloud computing - AWS, Azure, GCP
  3. Data viz and analysis - SQL, Tableau, PowerBI


Zoo Hill Data listened to our initial request and proposed a different approach that produced a superior result, building out our compliance suite from ground up rather than out of the box to deliver a customized experience.

Zoo Hill Data understands the restraints of operating a small business, and moves at the pace best suited for our firm.

Zoo Hill Data took the time to thoroughly learn and understand the unique 'niche' business of our firm and our clients.

Zoo Hill Data recognizes when a request is time sensitive and turns around the result. The team is quick to address any technical concerns when there are issues with the compliance suite, even when it’s user error they take the time to make sure all parties are satisfied.

Zoo Hill Data is easy to communicate with either via email, GitHub, or hoping on a quick video call.

Our value based process

  1. Listen

    We will learn about your unique situation. We will immerse ourselves in your business and gain the necessary context required to design your optimal solution.

  2. Solution design

    Design a custom solution for you and your specific goals. We follow first principles thinking, make no assumptions and make decisions to maximize flexibility, experimentation and value-to-effort.

  3. Prototype

    It is difficult to evaluate a solution without some sort of prototype or document to experiment with. It could be a very simple representation of the full solution; we will decide together the appropriate level to invest in order to confirm feasability and that we are solving the right problem.

  4. Implementation

    We will stay in close communication, touching base to evaluate value and efficiency tradeoffs and get your buy-in along the way. We will release early and often, allowing you to see progress and provide feedback.

  5. Delivery, monitoring, and maintenance

    We deliver the software with any required knowledge, plans to maintain it and dedicated time to answer questions. We will not leave you with something difficult to maintain and we will take maintenance into consideration right off the bat when designing our solution.
