The Solera Way
Solera’s uncommon culture is based on three simple principles: Think 80/20 (Focus), Act 30/30 (Efficiency), and Live 90/10 (Accountability). We define our mindset using Our 3H’s: Humility, a Hunger to succeed, and a desire to Hunt for opportunities to win. We train our volunteers to engage with each other modulating between their intellect (IQ) and emotional intelligence (EQ) using our 3Fs: Facts, Finesse, and Force. Solera has become a global technology leader that is constantly growing in the double digits. The principles, drills, and values associated with the Solera Way have been fundamental to Solera’s success and our ability to grow, continuously change, and innovate.
Product Development resides in the cap hpi head office; just across the road from Leeds train station. The department focuses on two main areas:
1) Our UK product suite that our company has become famous for
2) Our Global expansion – enhancing our data offering leveraging the existing datasets and global reach of our parent company Solera to expand our customer base across the world.
Regardless of the area, all our development teams follow Scrum principles – usually working in fortnightly sprints from an ordered backlog.
There is free access to online technical training courses to support and assist with developing technical skills, everyone gets a Visual Studio subscription, and there are opportunities to attend developer conferences/seminars that are relevant and of interest. We provide lunch and tech talk sessions to help us to stay ahead of the game and are proud to produce regular articles for our technology blog. To break up the day, and to allow time away from your screen, we have table football, pool and an arcade machine in the office.
Once a month we have an informal ‘’beer and crisps’’ get-together where we catch up on new developments and wins. We also like to celebrate company success, funding legendary summer and winter parties. Teams also take part in a quarterly incentive which is linked to our performance against financial targets
