Our team comprises seasoned full-stack professionals, many of whom have extensive tenures. Meaning the code base is well understood and you can expect to be given the necessary support that will allow you to work on all parts of our platform.

Our hiring approach values overall development expertise and experience over specific skills, languages, or library knowledge. Most importantly, we seek individuals who find joy in building things and derive deep satisfaction from seeing their creations deliver real value to others.
