How are the career development opportunities at Auction Technology Group?

Pros

On the tech side, we've moved to Azure and trying to leverage as many services as we can so a great learning experience and new work uses microservice patterns as well as serverless. Also a place where you can really influence those new services and patterns. Our teams are small and everyone has the power to contribute and expected to be Dev/QA/DevOps/Architect, it's about delivering as a team. Management changed about a year ago for the better with a new CTO, focusing on craftsmanship and allowing freedom within engineering to make change.

Cons

There's still a lot to do, we are transitioning from monolith to microservices and that is not easy and at times we do have to be pragmatic and go slower than we'd love to as engineers as its a 24/7 global eCommerce company. With small teams there's no where to hide so naturally expectations are high so you do have to work hard. But that is rewarded with flexibility and recognition and the chance to make more of a difference

Advice to Management

As we have for the last year of so we need to stay focused on ensuring we are applying the best engineering practices, moving froward, and ensure we have a scalable future proof platform to build on

What kind of career opportunities exist at Auction Technology Group?

Pros

They use cloud solutions and some of the projects use new technologies. Good opportunity to learn new stuff some time.

Cons

Very toxic environment. The new CTO have very bad leadership style. He operate in a dictatorial manner. So some time you think your in the army not in a company. You will feel you are always watched by managers who micromanage everything, CTO and the others.

Advice to Management

Mind your business, don't micro manage the developers. Don't focus on features but focus on product. You are not the CEO of your product, you are not Steve Jobs, you are not a lone genius designing a product from your ivory tower. Never forget that as a product manager you are only as good as your team, and setting them up for success and giving them the space and air cover to do their best is ultimately how you and your product will be successful.

Good opportunity to learn new stuff some time.

How are senior leaders perceived at Auction Technology Group?

Pros

ATG has one of the best cultures I have ever experienced in a working environment. Very collaborative and transparent. The senior management are extremely approachable and there isn't a boundary separating them for other staff members. They are very down to earth. Overall the company is very innovative snd always open to new ideas and feedback for improvement. If you are looking for a place to work where they value your opinion, trust you and not micromanaging you then look no further. This is an amazing place to work for anyone.

Cons

Hard to think of many. The only downside would be not having as many meeting rooms available as i was previously used to. However this presents an opportunity to explore the local work offices and cafes for informal meetings which is always good.

Advice to Management

Continue as you are. You are doing a great job.

The senior management are extremely approachable and there isn't a boundary separating them for other staff members.
