An Insider's view of Maven Wave, an Atos Company

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One of my favorite things about Maven Wave is that our teams can still meet in an office environment as much as we’d like. The environment is collaborative, fun, and energizing. We work with some of the most creative minds, so a trip into the office provides me an opportunity to learn something new every day. Also, they provide the best snacks!


Senior People Specialist - Payroll and Benefits

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

It’s a great experience working with the client. Some days present challenges within their software technology and infrastructure environments, but I’m able to not only rely on my skills but the team members around me who are very knowledgeable.


Cloud Infrastructure Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

As a software engineer and tech lead, I had to learn to effectively delegate tasks and mentor others. I'm proud of having coached talented developers and served as a resource so that they could take over the project. As a solutions engineer, I'm constantly learning to adapt and deal with new situations, which is a fun challenge.


Senior Consultant - Software Engineer and Tech Lead

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I ask my team to submit their "Top 5" report to me every Friday afternoon. This report includes 5 wins for the week and 5 things they will focus on the following week. Then every Monday I conduct a 1:1 with each individual to go through the report and talk about any obstacles or resources they may need to accomplish their goals.


Head of Sales

What makes someone successful on your team?

The drive to go beyond the simple steps of troubleshooting. The team triages customer issues ranging many different levels and the best engineers know how to research and read between the lines to resolve problems. Having the entire team work together to ensure the best outcome for the customer's needs is what makes the team as a whole successful.
