We value people who are smart, passionate and get things done. Fit is the most important criteria for us when hiring. We can always find "good technicians" but finding "good technicians who can succeed in our environment" is absolutely critical. So, when we say "fit," what does that mean to us? To "fit" at Marathon you must be:
Customer Centric : You have a strong desire to understand and empathize with customers, spending time to truly understand their concerns to ensure that our products and services improve their business performance
Intellectually Curious and Passionate : You love figuring out what the problem is and finding a way to fix it. You enjoy coming to work each day and have a positive energy that the organization can see and feel.
Empathetic and Respectful : You truly appreciate other's perspectives. You put yourself in others shoes and go out of your way to ensure that all perspectives are heard and understood before decisions are taken
Team Player : You're willing to jump in and help whenever and wherever needed by the team. Your goal is to find ways to provide value rather than call attention to your individual performance
Analytical : You use data as a guide in your decision-making. You're able to understand what data is needed, to parse that data in ways that provide key insights and summarize it for the team so that it can be used to drive the intended decisions
Able to Get Things Done : Once you've determined the key elements of the problem, you solve it and figure out how to most effectively put that solution in place. You're not afraid to roll up your sleeves, take responsibility and make things happen as an individual contributor but also know how to drive your team to do the same. Once you start them, you like to finish things, not just "checking the box" but making sure that they get done and done right.
Willing to Make Mistakes and Intellectually Honest When You Do : You are not afraid to make mistakes and, when you do, you admit them, learn from them and ensure they don't get repeated in the future. Placing blame and spending time pointing fingers is not part of your DNA...learning enough to make sure we don't repeat the mistake is.
With specific regard for the job at hand, we'd like to see evidence that you have:
Advanced C# skills
Knowledge of Mobile UI best practices for iOS and Android
Familiarity with Google Play and Apple App Store submission and review processes
Understanding of RESTful Web API principles
Excellent analytical and problem solving skills
Strong interpersonal and communication skills
Are able to work independently and prioritize work as needed
A Bachelor's degree (or equivalent experience) in Computer Science, Engineering or a related field is preferred, as is experience in a SaaS development environment.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
