thoughtbot works with companies in every step of the process to help identify and solve problems. We lead and participate in product design sprints, build high-quality apps, and then deploy them. We use emerging and effective technologies and methods on both internal and client projects. We believe there is always a better way to do our work, and we want to find it and share it with as many people as possible.
Additionally, we maintain an inclusive work environment where everyone can thrive professionally, as well as have full lives outside of work. thoughtbot does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, age, national origin, marital status, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other reason prohibited by law in provision of employment opportunities and benefits. We welcome you to apply and let us know if you need any reasonable accommodations during the interview process.
All persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification upon hire.
Our team works in a relaxed and educational environment to develop excellent products for our clients. We work at a sustainable pace of 40 hours per week, consulting for clients four days each week. We dedicate our non-client time to improving ourselves, our communities, and thoughtbot. Everything we do is predicated on having a great team and a culture of growing. We use the latest technologies and are willing to try new methods on both internal and client projects.
We have an investment day each Friday where we learn new tools and techniques, work on open source, create new products, write blog posts, and try to make ourselves, each other, and the community better. If you’ve used our open source libraries, read our blog, attended the local events we host, or seen us speak at conferences then you’ve seen the fruits of investment time.
We have a culture of continuous improvement. Investment days are a critical component in this, but we also offer training and conference benefits. We will cover 100% of all expenses incurred when you speak at a conference and a minimum of 50% of your expenses for any conference or training you attend.
You’ll also enjoy working with and learning from a diverse set of teammates across your client projects and during investment time. We dedicate time each week towards working collaboratively on exciting investment projects, wrapping the year up with a two-day event which our teammates often use to build brand new products in exciting new technologies.
We offer 25 paid vacation days and 11 paid holidays per year in addition to 10 paid sick days. New parents receive at least 6 weeks paid parental leave, as well as the ability to take up to 6 months off.
