We are a lean team of experts. If you are just starting, we’ll make you an expert. If you are already an expert, we’ll appreciate your
contribution from day one. Not your diploma, abbreviations on your resume, or your textbook (algorithmic) proficiency. The real contribution.
We reward it with money. Not titles, vague “career future” promises, “work and life balance”, “cool work environment”, company mugs/t-shirts,
free sandwiches, or other HR “perks” to compensate for the low salary.
We were underpaid and abused corporate IT employees once. We endured life or death negotiation over a 5% of starting salary. We don’t want you
to go through that. We are fellow engineers and salesmen who need help with our projects, not “hiring” or other kind of “managers”.
Unlike other “startups” founded by a couple of Ivy league buddies or ex-execs with golden parachutes burning a hole in their pockets,
LionStack didn’t start with a COO or CFO. We don’t have “general” managers to “facilitate” “collaboration”, “communication”, and “teamwork”
via inspirational speeches. Nor PMs to count hours. We did away with dedicated QA to report bugs the rushed overworked developers already know
about after mindlessly throwing unfinished and untested code over the wall.
LionStack was founded by an engineer and a salesperson, and we intend to keep it staffed by people like us. If we ever hire a CFO or a COO,
they would be our support personnel. Exactly like you would be treated at a company founded by an ex-COO or CFO - always looked at as an
overpaid necessary evil for MBAs, who don’t understand programming or sales.
