MORE ABOUT US
We’re currently a team of 10 people -- you will be #11.
We are profitable and self-funded (no VCs or investors). We did this because we want to do what’s best for our team and customers (not investors).
We have sane working hours; we don’t work weekends, take ample time off, and work ~8 hours a day.
You enjoy writing beautiful code. You care not just about whether the code works, but you think deeply about how well it performs, and how it will be understood by future developers.
You like shipping things. Whether it is bug fixes or features, you realize that every line of code is an opportunity to make a user’s experience better.
You ship often. You realize that the most efficient way to build a robust large application is by building it in smaller chunks and iterating upon user feedback.
You like getting feedback. Whether it is talking to real users or adding custom application metrics, you believe that getting real user data is a smart way to make decisions.
You are organized and autonomous. You don’t need someone to keep tabs on you all the time. You are able to take a goal, break it up into small tasks, and self-organize them in the best sequence to get the tasks achieved.
You are an excellent communicator. You try to make the best use of the tools available to use. You commit your code in small chunks and commit often.

This is a high impact role. We’re looking for someone to take real ownership of one or two core features within the first year. You'll own some extremely important portions of our application that serve thousands of users.
We prioritize our internal projects based on what features our customers are requesting the most. Some things that you will work on include:
