In 2015, there were nine million STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) workers in the United States.

STEM careers are projected to grow by 8.9 percent from 2014 to 2024, and over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM counterparts.

As STEM career opportunities increase, technology advances and the circle continues to repeat itself. It is exciting to be a spoke in that wheel. With so many STEM jobs out there, how do you know which to choose? Well if you’re considering Pyramid Solutions, whether it be a STEM position or something else, here are some reasons why our Pyramidians chose to build a career here.

“I decided to work here because of the depth of technical knowledge in the engineering ranks of the company, the opportunity to learn new things, and the fit of my technical skills to the needs of the company.”

Mike M., ECM Solution Consultant, Pyramidian for 20 Years

“One of the reasons I chose to work at Pyramid Solutions is because of the unique banking and financial services offerings. We have a different way of capturing documents and (QC) quality control loans. The front-end of the loan process offers a document repository/workflow solution, and on the back end we focus on MSR acquisition/document capture space. No other tech company is like ours and has a product that can work for both pre- and post-closed loans.”

Don R., Banking & Financial Services Account Executive, Pyramidian for 9 Months

“At the time, I had an Associate’s Degree and little real-world programming experience. Pyramid Solutions decided to give me an opportunity to show what I was capable of. What has kept me here over the years are many different things:

 

Compensation:

I earn enough to live comfortably and am certain there is an opportunity for salary growth as my experience and value to the company increases.

 

Work/Life Balance:

As a “divorced parent,” I find the flexible schedule, ability to work from home, and the ability to use my vacation time as personal time, invaluable.

 

Personal Fulfillment:

I’m presented with new and interesting problems daily and then given the freedom to come up with and implement solutions to those problems. I’m also given the opportunity to learn and develop new skills. I personally enjoy this and find it to be fulfilling.”

Tim H., Systems Engineer, Intelligent Manufacturing, Pyramidian for 3.5 Years

“At the time, I chose to work at Pyramid Solutions because of proximity to family and the opportunity to do embedded development independent of the automotive industry. The auto industry was still volatile at that time, so I didn’t want to be completely reliant on it. Additionally, Pyramid Solutions does a fair amount of service/contract work which allows for a wide variety of projects in a diverse range of industries.”

Chris V., Systems Engineer, Network Connectivity, Pyramidian for 5 Years

I initially came to Pyramid Solutions as a contractor. After my six months was up, the company offered me a full-time position. I stayed because I like the people (friendly, helpful, fun to talkwith), I look forward to working on a variety of projects, and I enjoy the relaxed feel of the company (going out to watch the solar eclipse, Detroit Tigers opening day lunch with hot dogs and peanuts, etc.).

Mike P., Senior Systems Engineer, Network Connectivity, Pyramidian for 2 Years

“I wanted to pursue my career in the enterprise content management (ECM) field. I believe Pyramid Solutions is the best in the ECM world, and on top of it, the Pyramid eXpeditor product is a successful one.

Varma K., Systems Engineer, Enterprise Content Management, Pyramidian for 1 Year

“I decided to work at Pyramid Solutions because the company…

  • Provided an opportunity to work with highly intelligent-individuals
  • Is highly-regarded in prioritizing client services
  • Offered a broad variety of projects, working with large companies across multiple industries
  • Encourages teamwork, striving to provide quality solutions to clients
  • Extended flexible working arrangements”

Crawford C., Systems Engineer, Enterprise Content Management, Pyramidian for 1.5 Years

“I was deciding between two different job offers after graduating from college and I’m so glad I chose this one. I love working at Pyramid Solutions because of the people, first and foremost. Technology companies are everywhere, but it’s rare to find one that has such great people to work with. Everyone is relaxed, but still hard-working. I feel comfortable going to anyone with questions or problems, and the management team does a good job of making sure everyone feels appreciated and valued, which is great for morale.”

Alex S., Systems Engineer, Enterprise Content Management, Pyramidian for 6.5 Years
