What Do Current Employees Say About Working in ORIS?

“Researchers at UW explore significant advances in areas as diverse as astrophysics, cancer treatment, and renewable energy–just to name a few. It’s rewarding to know the software we develop at ORIS helps accelerate those research activities while also reducing the distracting administrative burden through automation when possible.”

“I like working at UW because the work/life balance is second-to-none, the work is meaningful and helping real people do cool things, and my coworkers are awesome.”

“There are a lot of choices out there right now for software engineer positions, but a majority are in the private sector to serve commercial interests. I enjoy working for a public university, knowing that the applications I make serve an audience who is trying to make this world a better place. ORIS (and the university by extension) wants to make sure that the workplace is enjoyable, challenging, and trying to cater to my interests or professional pursuits.”

“Working as a developer at ORIS gives me great satisfaction in the types of research that I get to support. The workplace culture is also very open to exploring different methodologies and technical solutions. I like working for the University because of the flexible hours, the remote work options, and the husky card.”
