      • Experience with Atlassian product suite (JIRA, Confluence) preferred
      • Excellent written and verbal communications skills
      • Comfortable working in an agile, collaborative team environment
      • An inherent drive to better own knowledge and willingness to both learn from and share knowledge with peers

      • Master's degree in Computer Science, Robotics, Computer Engineering or related area preferred

        All members of Alert Innovation practice the following values as part of their daily responsibilities and model these values as she/he leads or supports their teams.
        • The Golden Rule: Extraordinarily powerful in its simplicity and depth: "Treat others as you would want to be treated".
        • The Power of Person: The contribution of every single person in a company is important, and the performance of the entire company can only be maximized when every person strives to achieve his/her full potential and to contribute to the best of his/her ability.
        • The Power of Team: The Power of Person becomes amplified exponentially when a group of people working effectively as a team create "performance synergy", whereby the capacity to perform as a team is much greater than the sum of the individual members' capacities.
        • The Power of Truth: We strive to see the world as it is, not as we want or imagine it to be, because only then can we make it better. This core value manifests itself through questioning, probing, testing, measuring, validating, verifying, proving, listening with an open mind, and making fact-based decisions. It also fosters transparency and honesty with others, as well as self-examination and self-honesty.
          WHAT DO WE OFFER?

          Alert Innovation offers a highly competitive salary for each job family and level within the Boston-area market in which we are based. As part of our Power of Truth value we practice salary transparency, so you know you are being compensated fairly relative to other team members performing similar roles in our organization.
          Every employee is granted stock options which vest over four years.
          Full time employees receive a generous benefits package starting on your first date of employment:
          • No fixed limits on the number of workdays that you can take off for personal reasons, including vacations. You take what you need keeping in mind the demands of your team's workload.
          • 9 Paid Holidays.
          • Medical, Dental, Vision, Life Insurance, and 401K + company match.
          • Tuition & work-related training reimbursement programs.
          • Employee Assistance Program to assist with emotional health, parenting, eldercare, nutrition, legal and financial consultation needs.
