List

In no particular order:

  • Social impact of work
  • Its fun
  • Anti harrasment policy
  • Learning policies
  • Expense policies
  • Support
  • Paternal policies
  • Transparency
  • Working with nice / talented people
  • Career Progression
  • Mentoring
  • Clear involvement in the industry (attending conferences, meet ups, workshops etc...)
  • Training & support
  • Culture
  • Conference policy: whether they’ll let you embrace a powerful support network
  • People you’d like to learn from: skilled people who can teach you (and are willing to do it)
  • What you can learn: the support to specialise or generalise in technologies or skills
  • Genuine commitment to training, allowing conference attendance etc
  • Mastery/learning/personal project time
  • Career progression
  • Doing user research, prototyping, iterating, then doing it again, BEFORE developing production code
  • A culture of trust; micromanagement achieves nothing
  • Learning opportunities. Not even necessarily when it comes to code
  • Freedom of setup choice (preferably using your own machine)
  • Autonomy
