Rally On!

Today marks a sad day but also one more call to collaborate.  Many former Rally Software employees are being let go in Boulder, Denver, Raleigh and other locations.  They include developers, QA, sales engineers, and more.  Rally Software was an amazing place to work and was the turning point of my career and many others.  Today also happens to be Jean Tabaka’s birthday.

So my fellow Rally alumni, let’s do something about this!  Let’s Rally On one more time.

If you know of good agile companies please post them here in the comments.  I’ll update the post as often as I can.  My company is hiring and I welcome all Rallyers who can apply.

  1. Hi Mark,
    I wasn’t an original Rally’er but I’ve worked at the Boulder office for the last year after Rally became CA Agile Central. I recently interviewed Mel Gallegos who was Rally employee #21 and wrote a blog post about it for the CA Agile Central blog. In the interview, we talk about Jean Tabaka and what a great influence she was at Rally and beyond. You can read that here:

  2. I know for my part that Assurant is almost always looking for new talent. Scrum Masters, Sales, Development, Quality Assurance, UI/UX Designers, Business Systems Analysts, Architects, if you’re close to Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Miami, Philly or Minneapolis we might have a role for you! https://jobs.assurant.com/

    Keep in mind that we’re in the middle of a transition to agile methods, and many areas are just starting the journey. Still, we have support at the bottom AND the top, so we have a good chance of success!

  3. This is great, thanks for leading Mark.

    I want to put a plug in for Slalom Consulting. I started here three weeks ago and I’m super impressed by the focus on people, customers, and building a multi-generational company. Slalom just passed the $1B in revenue mark and is profitable in every market that we work in. The people are great and the working environment is amazing. I highly recommend.

    Slalom has 10’s of positions open in every market in the US and I’m happy to help any Rally Alumni get talking to the right people.

  4. CampMinder (CampMinder.com) is software company in Boulder looking for agile developers, testers, and product managers. I’m helping out with product management there. The culture reminds me so much of Rally and the people are amazing. I highly recommend them. There’s a job postings link in the Careers section. Check out the Culture too and you’ll see what I mean.
