Business Technology department at nation’s leading exterior home remodeler boasts great work perks, culture and opportunities for career advancement
PHILADELPHIA, June 17, 2019 — Power Home Remodeling (“Power”), the nation’s largest full-service exterior home remodeling company, today announced that it has been named to IDG’s Computerworld 2019 Best Places to Work in IT list. Based on responses to a comprehensive questionnaire on benefits, career development, training and retention, Power’s Business Technology (BT) department ranked 25th among midsize organizations in the annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals.
“Technology is fundamental to the success of our business, which is why recruiting and retaining skilled technologists is among my highest priorities,” said Power Home Remodeling CIO and Partner Timothy Wenhold. “There are developers on our team who have been with the company for more than 10 years — well above the industry average. This is a testament to the purposeful, mission-driven work that comes standard with a career at Power, as well as the culture we’ve created here that allows people to thrive.”
The 90-person BT department at Power is responsible for the ongoing development of Nitro, the company’s proprietary enterprise platform. Nitro acts as the digital backbone of the business, incorporating artificial intelligence, conversational computing and computer vision technologies to connect 2,600 Power employees nationwide. In addition to recruiting skilled developers, Power Code Academy is an internal coding bootcamp that trains employees from other areas of the business for entry-level development roles.
“The market for IT talent remains very tight, and employers continue to focus on finding and holding on to the best people,” said Computerworld Executive Editor Ken Mingis. “Our 2019 survey shows again that the Best Places to Work in IT are dynamic organizations that provide top pay and a broad array of programs and benefits designed to make them attractive places to work. Many show that they have a commitment to training, to diversity and to improved communication and teamwork.”
Power offers BT employees competitive salaries, 401(k) retirement savings programs, full medical, dental, life and disability insurance plans, generous paid time off and parental leave policies, as well as the standard work perks and benefits enjoyed by all Power employees, like an all-expenses-paid company retreat to Mexico.
