For only the second time in the 7+ years we've been running Honeybadger, we have an opening for a software developer position. This individual will have ownership of our open source libraries, and will participate in significant projects in our main Rails app and in other apps we are bringing to market this year.
We hope that candidates of all backgrounds will apply... though we are a pretty homogenous team at the moment, we'd like that to change. :) Our goal as a company is to always be learning and growing, and we feel we can best do that when we have a variety of experiences and viewpoints from which to draw.
This is a full-time position available to remote candidates in time zones ranging from UTC-11 to UTC+2. The salary for this position is $104,580 / year.
What we need
Strong communication skills are required for this position, for a few reasons:
- We're a 100% remote company, and we prefer asynchronous communication, so you'll be communicating mostly via your keyboard
- We work very independently, so the rest of us won't know what you're doing day-to-day unless you tell us
- You'll be interacting with our customers on a regular basis, handling inbound support and feature requests (every developer helps with support at Honeybadger, including the founders)
- You'll be writing documentation for the projects you deliver, both for internal and external consumption
What we offer
As developers, the three founders have tried to build a work environment that other developers would love. We work 30-hour weeks, we don't expect your butt to be in the seat for X amount of time or at certain times of the day (we ❤️ being async), and we encourage you to use your preferred tools and to pick the environment (home-office, coworking space, coffee shop, whatever) that works best for you. We maintain a very laid-back environment (no public roadmaps, no artificial deadlines, awesome and friendly customers), and we strongly encourage continued learning, experimentation, and even side projects. :)

For candidates located in the U.S., we offer 100% paid heath insurance for you and your dependents, a 401k with a 4% match, 4 weeks of paid parental leave, an unlimited vacation policy, and a corporate credit card.
Updated Feburary 21st, 2020: We are no longer accepting applications for this position.
