Top 3 Reasons for Software Developers to Make a Move

Is the grass really greener on the other side? It’s the age-old question for anyone looking to make a job change. For software developers and UX designers, it can be easier to identify that it’s time for a change by asking 3 simple questions:

  1. Am I bored regularly?
  2. Have I learned anything new in the past 6 months?
  3. Do I have a clear path for growth?

Beat Boredom with Cutting Edge Technologies

If only every project could be interesting and exciting! The reality is that not every project sparks innovation, but working with the right tools and frameworks can make a huge difference. If you’re currently not working with the latest frameworks and using modern technologies, it’s easy to get bored.

Skills Development is a Continuous Journey

From learning a simple coding short cut to understanding Agile, you should be continuously developing your skills to position yourself and your team for success. If you don’t have the bandwidth, proper mentorship or the chances to continuously learn, it’s time to find a new opportunity that allows you to further your skills development.

There’s Always Room to Grow

Building your portfolio, continuously developing your skills and taking on new projects are key components of personal growth, but they’re not necessarily going to get you a promotion. You should have clear objectives outlined for your career growth plan and avenues to reach them. If you feel like it’ll be a long time before you move up the ladder or if it feels like you’ve reached the ceiling, it’s likely time to move on.

If you’re on the fence about changing jobs, and you identified with one or more of the above, check out our open positions. We’re growing like crazy here, and looking for top UX Designers and Front-End Engineers to work on a range of projects from building web apps from scratch to unifying brand experiences across multiple lines of businesses.
