About You You love working with the latest language or framework, but you also love working on a “top repair” project. You respect the old code, no matter how ugly it sounds. He really enjoys figuring out how old code works, refactoring it, and tackling the challenges it brings. You have experience doing this type of work and you know you love it. You are a problem solver who loves to analyze a problem, recreate it, and trace it back to the source of the problem. It will not send any code unless it is fully tested and solves the problem. Better yet, write the corresponding tests. She is curious and loves to learn. You take the opportunity to level up, learn something new, and really dig into it. You are a disciplined worker and have no problem doing homework on any given day. It values consistency over preference and will adopt new coding styles, standards, and tools to that end. You are stellar at identifying the simple and elegant solution in a sea of excessive engineering possibilities. Although you enjoy working with people to help you brainstorm and formulate a project attack plan, you do your best work in isolation and without interruption. You are proactive in tackling things that need to be done without instructions. You are exceptional at communicating in writing via instant messages, email, etc. You are also fine on the phone and video chat.

Remote first. We have always been a remote company, from the beginning. Working from home has its challenges, but you will be surrounded by empathetic people who have worked successfully from home for many years.
Company retreats. As a remote business, having some face-to-face time is very important. In 2019 we had a great time in Berlin, but we had to cancel our trip to Portugal last June. Hopefully, we can meet again soon. Will you join us?
Regardless of location. Work from where you are happiest. All of our team members currently work from their homes in the US, Canada, UK and India.
Choose your schedule. Most companies claim to have flexible hours, but the reality is often very different. We flex our schedule for real.
