FreshBooks is seeking skilled back end developers who really understand how the web works. You will help build new features and update existing ones in our consumer facing cloud accounting application using PHP, Python, MySQL and some flavor of Unix. You have built scalable, service oriented (SOA) web infrastructure systems. You have ridiculously high standards for yourself and your team and are constantly looking for ways to improve the systems you own. We hire people based on their ability, not their years of experience. So instead of listing our “must haves” we want you to understand how we work.
We work in an open environment; no cubicles or offices. Collaboration is key to our success, and we don't want to hinder it with walls.
Agile development methodology has many different meanings but to us it is doing what works best for the customer. Our developers don’t just translate ideas into realities; they work with our product teams to generate ideas. We use Scrum for collaboration and release super-awesome-game-changing features once a week to our clients. We’re pragmatic. We have strong opinions but we are never afraid to try to new things.
Shipping is at the forefront of our engineering practice. We rely on continuous integration and Test Driven Development (TDD) to ensure our product is always shippable.
We set our teams up for success to deliver something that is changing the way entrepreneurs run their small businesses. We recognize and reward ingenious work. We all have a voice that is heard throughout the company to communicate any challenges we face. We always make time for fun.
Salaries are competitive and compensation packages include stake in the company.
We're looking for people who are interested in getting in on the ground floor of an incredible opportunity to build amazing software and transform the lives of small business owners all over the world.
