Contino – Why Work With Us?


Contino is one of the few real DevOps consultancies in the world.

We’re here to challenge the status quo. We work to help global organisations better adopt new ways of working and approaches to software delivery, while embedding culture change by up-skilling and empowering their people.

We’ve delivered over 200 enterprise transformation projects with some of the world’s largest brands in financial services, telecom, retail and ecommerce.

We support our customers across five key services:

- Cloud Platform Build and Migration

- Enterprise DevOps Transformation

- Data Platforms and Analytics

- DevSecOps and Cloud Security

We’ve grown from three to 350 employees worldwide and were named one of Linkedin’s Top 25 Startups in both 2018 and 2019. We are an AWS Premier Partner, HashiCorp System Integrator Partner and a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider.

Which is why we’ve put a lot of effort into creating a vibrant culture that attracts the right people: those with a passion for collaborating, learning and innovating. We believe that it shouldn’t be the biggest or the loudest in the limelight, but that the good people doing good work get the recognition they deserve!

    I have been working at Contino full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really hands-on PeopleOps team to check-in for any support
    A great pool of technical experts within reach for brainstorming and solution-making
    If you like tech and to be at the best of your game - this is the place to be
    Contino often passes on "genius-grade" specialists who have 0 people skills. Good.
    Great colleague camaraderie - "we get it done"
    Great competitive package

    Cons

    It could be short notice pressure at times i.e. by tomorrow,
    Some cases of overpromised delivery estimates -
    But nothing particularly out of the ordinary for a consultancy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it.
    Improve transparency and inclusiveness
    Ensure consultants get a regular review of their progression ambitions
