It was hard to go back to our day-to-day reality after those incredible couple of days at VueConf. The whole thing felt curiously like closing a chapter, and a very long one at that. Putting everything in place took us nearly seven months and now was over, just like that. Leaving us just a little bit nostalgic.
Let me tell you a story about Vue. Not just from my perspective as a Vue developer. I will also try to explain some of the many reasons behind adopting it within Monterail and why we recommend it to companies we work with. You will find out why adopting it was a good decision from both developer and product owner perspective. I will tell you how we embraced the Vue community and how did it lead us to make a major contribution to its history by organising the first international Vue conference! Enjoy!
Last Monday was very exciting. About 100 young women gathered in Monterail’s office to listen to our women experts from different fields—front-end, backend, QA, design, project management, and other roles. During the 2-hour event, we discussed possible career paths in IT industry and real life stories of getting there.
*In a medium sized software house in Wrocław, we’re currently looking for a new team member who knows how to design applications, network management tools, procurement or social platforms, and such.

As I was contemplating the problem of few women in IT, I approached my friend Mateusz Sławiński, a Talent Manager here at Monterail. We had a long conversation that yielded some eye-opening (at least for me) conclusions. This blog is more or less a distilled essence of our conversation augmented with research that I had a lot of help with from my female colleagues. Thank you!
Some time ago we mentioned on our blog that according to Clutch, Monterail was ranked as a market leader in Polish development companies, Ruby on Rails developers, and software companies in general. With more testimonials published on our profile, we’ve climbed even higher and managed to become #1 in Ruby on Rails category.
If you’re here, you’re probably wondering if this is a good idea for you to apply for a Key Account Manager at Monterail. Great, it’s so awesome you’re here!
I’ve written this post to make the decision easier for you. I promise that after reading this you will know whether or not this job is right for you. I don’t want you to waste your time sending us your CV and waiting for our feedback if Monterail is not a company you’re looking for. It’s not quite fair.
In February, Clutch - a Washington-based business analytics company, released 2017 edition of updated research of top development companies. We’re very excited to announce, that Monterail, competing with 100+ companies, was recognized as a Market Leader in Polish Development Companies and Ruby on Rails Developers categories, currently ranking on 2nd place in both.
Almost every software development agency eventually creates a QA department. QAs' play role is to validate if the product meets both business and technical requirements, but also works and looks as expected. Yes, a company can do just fine with no testing experts, and make their developers take care of that part. However, if you crave effective, automated testing process, you need field pros within your team.
This was a busy year for
service design. Our friends at BLStream organized “Basics of service design. UX#3”. A few months back there was a first Service design drinks event in Warsaw, organized by the guys from Service design Berlin (an event that took place in November). In October there was the Service Design Global Conference in Amsterdam and from what I’ve heard it was an event you cannot miss.
