I've worked here for a few years now, and I really enjoy the corporate culture at Jaroop. I prefer to work for smaller companies than huge corporations as I feel like you get a little lost in those environments and the culture is more "stuffy." Benefits are really good in comparison to other smaller companies I've worked for, especially the healthcare plan. Plus we get our birthdays and usually the entire week of Christmas off. During the warmer months we also do a company wide picnic/BBQ outside every week. Work involves developing software for a diverse set of clients. Entertainment, manufacturing, insurance, travel, etc., which is pretty cool. Plus, the company works to help grow our skill sets. They see value in growing what they have.

A few things that I have observed make Jaroop a bit unique. They provide a lot of support without micromanaging. As a developer, I am not just pigeonholed into a specific set of things. I have worked on different projects, gotten to provide my thoughts around product development and had my voice heard. My previous place of employment always just told me what to do regardless of my opinion. It sucked. The company seems to get along well with no drama or office politics. The head of development, Mike, takes time consistently to meet with us individually to get feedback directly from us. The owners seem to spend a good amount of time letting us know what is going on outside of just the software development piece. Not sure how much I can talk about our projects here, but I have worked on a couple that I am really proud of in terms of their technical complexity and problem that they are solving.

Making the transition from a big firm to a small company has many advantages. The dress code is casual and there is free parking! The technology and equipment are top notch and state-of-the-art. The freedom to be mobile is so convenient, especially with kids at home. Being part of a team that really cares about their employees is amazing! I have learned so much from these guys and learn something new every day.

Jaroop is a pretty rare find in CT. It's a breath of fresh air to be able to develop using new technologies and break away from the antiquated systems many developers are tied down to. It's also great to be part of a team that doesn't need to be embarrassed about their development practices and is proud to create quality products (scores 12/12 on the Joel Test). The development team has a large stake within the process to control project schedules to keep them realistic and ensure success. I've spoken to so many developers who have become demoralized by impossible schedules, stressful work days, and management that doesn't listen. It makes me very happy I've ended up here, and not elsewhere. Jaroop's work environment is relaxed, friendly, and open. Employees are positively encouraged to provide feedback to management, and in turn, management is very receptive to new ideas. Overtime is a very rare occurrence here, and employees enjoy a good work/life balance (your typical 40-hour work week). Co-workers are all very friendly, and everyone knows everyone else in the company, make it a very collaborative environment. As far as the actual work goes, there is never a shortage of fun and challenging problems to solve. It's great to be able to work with a variety of big clients in emerging markets and solve their business problems. When you like what you do it makes the day go by quickly and not really feel like work at all. Most of the work is web development using Scala and Play, with some work utilizing big data technologies like Spark, but this will certainly evolve with time and the market/ecosystem. You won't make a New York City salary here, but on the other hand this is Connecticut and the cost of living is much lower, so it ends up balancing out anyway. Putting in hard work and effort has more than paid off in the form of significant pay raises.

The work is pretty run of the mill web development for no-name clients. Getting to learn Scala and their tech stack probably the best part great, and there is a lot of room to grow in that direction, but that slows once you get going on real work. Co-workers were pleasant. The benefits are pretty terrible. My associates working on easier stuff with less experience earn more than me by far. A lot of people left in short succession which says a lot. Management was always distracted or just didn't notice the discontent. Also our hardware was old and monitors sucked. I'd give 1.5 stars if that was an option, but they don't deserve 2.
