Another Employee Goes To Google

Published September 18, 2017

Having a web and mobile development shop in the New York space is pretty competitive, we compete with Google, Facebook and many others in hiring quality developers.  And over the years, we have had three RustyBrick developers end up at Google's New York office.  I believe two are still at Google, with one just joining the Google NYC office a week or so ago.

Any company will tell you that losing good employees is hard and most good companies do what they can do avoid having anyone leave the company.  Companies of course try to pay competitively, but also give employees a lot of other perks including health benefits, other security benefits but other things such as a sense of good in the work they do, a sense of ownership, a sense that the work they do impacts people for the better.  Of course things like having a low-stress environment helps, giving employees space and freedom and not just caring about them, but showing them you care - are all factors.  Salary is not the only thing.

Thankfully at RustyBrick we have an incredibly low turn over rate.  Many of our employees have been here for over ten years, many of the newer employees will stay for over ten years.  We really try hard to make RustyBrick a good place to work at.  

But when it comes to competing against a company like Google - we can't always win.  They work on big problems, solve major tasks and offer some seriously awesome benefits that a small business often cannot compete with.  

We also know that recruiters and companies are often calling our employees here and that they turn down offer after offer.  We are grateful and honored that most people love working here and don't want to go elsewhere.  But we are also sensitive to trying our best to make sure we stay as competitive as we can within the resources we have.

The picture above is of Baruch Hayman, the most recent RustyBrick developer, to go to Google. He is wearing the Noogler hat, hats new Googlers wear during their week of orientation at the company.  He is standing next to the Android statue that is also wearing the Noogler hat.  We are all so very proud of Baruch and that he has this opportunity to work at Google.  We will miss him dearly and he knows he will always have a home with us here at RustyBrick!
