Some key points about the culture of our team here:

🤖 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 value a daily work + life balance.

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!

We're a remote first company, but you get bonus points if you live in Colorado.
