Empathy

rok-software-entrepreneurialism

We build the important context before proceeding on the technical: our customer’s business objectives, technical landscape and product domain.  This enables us to provide superior outcomes and make optimal decisions.  

We understand our customer’s goals: what gets our customers up at 4AM; what their pain points are.  We solve problems for them, and that starts by understanding their motivations.

Transparency & Trust

We work in lock-step to our customers and often are an extension to their technical departments.  As a result, we operate in the most transparent manner possible.  As a partner in executing integral projects for our customers, we engender the trust that they can count on.

Entrepreneurialism

We encourage an entrepreneurial mindset throughout our organization.  Great ideas to improve, promote, expand or take on new things, can come from anywhere.  This perspective extends to the work we do for our customers.  You'll never hear "sorry, it's just how it's always been done" by our team.

Learning

We enjoy being on the steep part of the learning curve.  We are energized by new challenges.  We are comfortable being on the cutting edge, even in over our heads, because we, and our customers, are confident in our own ability to figure things out.  Thirst for knowledge and hunger for experience.  Lifelong learners.

Have Fun

We enjoy our work, and the company of our co-workers and customers.  We create an environment where we want to go to work, because it’s fun.

OUR STORY

The ROK Software story starts with a passion for applying technology to unlock business value.  Every time we replace an emailed spreadsheet or a paper/pen clipboard with web software, we are helping our customers be more successful and we have seen this happen time and time again.  

This passion is combined with our excitement for "full stack" technology, from the electrical/mechanical hardware (remote sensing and control) through the firmware, IOT to cloud, and the HMIs and the web, mobile and desktop software applications that make the systems useful and provide user experiences to the hardware.  

 

We are also motivated by GREAT project management.  We are truly excited by navigating the changes that reality throws our way, manoeuvring through over-constrained situations, delivering the right outcomes and engaging the stakeholders to arrive at the right endpoints. 

We are grounded in a passion for learning about our customers' businesses; their operations, product strategies and objectives as well as their business constraints, all informed by a strong desire to help.  What do they need?  What do they need that they don't see yet themselves?  What are the opportunities that can be realized?

ROK Software was built to bring like-minded people together, people with the same passion, excitement and the same values.  An appreciation for flex time, flex location, interesting work, variety, love of learning, energized by solving complex problems and doing so in a nurturing and collaborative environment.
