Fast growing company with big ambitions
Senior Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC15 September 2016
Visier is an interesting place to work. It is also definitely a challenging place as we tackle difficult problems and use relatively new technologies like Scala, Play, Typescript and Angular 2. Most of the stack is written in-house so past experience is not as relevant as in other companies. At the same time, the above makes it fun place to work at.

I also enjoy working for a relatively small company which at the same time has customers among the biggest companies in the world.

The company is growing fast, which can be challenging at times, but at the same time offers opportunity for career advancement and having an impact.
Pros
interesting problems to solve, potential for personal growth, training, good benefits
Cons
fast growth can be a challenge, long hours

Great place to learn and build a cool product with good people
Software Developer (Co-op) (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC15 September 2016
Typical day involves working on feature, bug, or other project with a good amount of freedom. Never had to deal with micromanagement.

Learning scala is a cool perk, Java code in the older product.

Management and co-workers are good. Very bright co-workers who are enjoyable to work with. Everyone works hard to produce the best product. Management has a good vision for the company, is open and respects effort and the knowledge of their employees.

It's still a young company so some of the older code contains some hacks that made things work at the time. I doubt many new companies don't struggle with this. They're doing a good job addressing this and the newer code is much cleaner. There is also high expectations with lofty goals for releases. Yet I've never found overtime to be expected and find the work-life balance quite reasonable, just show a desire to succeed and do your best.

Being given the freedom to solve problems and how everyone is encouraged to learn are the best parts of the job. There is also a great patio for summer bbq's, free produce and pop, and many lunch and learns where lunch is provided.
Pros
people, product, atmosphere
Cons
older code, high expectations

Great place to work for the ambitious
Senior Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC15 September 2016
Visier is a great place to be for those who want to build an amazing product as well gain some highly demanded tech skills along the way.
The people here are smart and work very hard (there's some long days/nights). Management does a great job recognizing deserving individuals and rewards them for their contributions. One of the main things that sets Visier apart is its vision of the future. Management has clear and ambitious goals for the company and if you're on board to help build it, you'll have a very enjoyable and rewarding career.
Pros
Great product, technology, people
Cons
Endless number of issues to think about

Great place to dream big and do what you love
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC15 September 2016
I am really enjoying myself here. The following sums up the top qualities of this company.

- Great leadership - The leaders have been in the business analytics industry for a couple of decades and know exactly what to look for in a groundbreaking and innovative product of the future.

- Warm workplace community - Visier is still a very small company so everyone knows each other's names. Executives know your name and will talk to you on a regular basis. My previous company was a large company and the top 6 rungs of management have no idea who you are nor what you do.

- Trust and empowerment - leadership within Visier is strongly empowering. For example, our Coops are treated like full time employees and will have full access to tasks and technology that regular employees have access to. Also, people get recognized for all achievements and management do a very good job of making sure to give feedback that promotes your growth.

- Explosive growth - Visier is still in the growth stage of their business and is working hard to hit that explosion in growth. Being a part of Visier while it's young can be very rewarding in the future.
Pros
Friendly work environment, cutting edge technology, great career growth
Cons
Agressive schedules
