You enjoy working with smaller team sizes, thrive with much autonomy, and don’t mind some ambiguity.

You value an agile & iterative culture where feedback is given quickly and constructively, collaboration is as easy as breathing, iterations are done swiftly and integrations are continuous.

You are self-motivated, independent, and are a Developer at heart. You take general direction well and can fill in the gaps. Being biased towards action is hardcoded into your problem-solving techniques and you always have your eye on keeping the team moving forward. You know how to find solutions and raise your hand when you need help. You get fulfillment from providing a WOW experience to clients.


We are a collaborative and cross-functional team built on the values of a community and driven by accountability, communication, and creative thinking. We believe in short incremental development cycles so we expect our developers to commit code daily at a minimum.
