We value automation. That means we don't use hard deadlines. We take the extra time to do things right.

We're not big on meetings. That means we have great communication and patient self-driven attitudes.

🤓 We have a passion for open source. That means we're curious self-learners who dive deep into code repos.

We care about everything we do. That means we like to take ownership and have attention to detail.

We've built a pretty special work environment for the engineering team that's rare to find at other companies. If this culture and these values resonate with you, please apply!
