We’re a small team of friends who build awesome software together. Expected Behavior is profitable, self-funded, and currently runs two SaaS products: Instrumental, an application monitoring platform, and DocRaptor, an HTML-to-PDF API.
We’re looking for an experienced developer and interface designer who thrives in a fast-paced, highly-collaborative environment.
As a software developer/designer at Expected Behavior, your responsibilities will include:
Designing and building robust and usable product features
Participating in the product vision and roadmap decision process
Identifying and resolving complex production issues
Participating in design and code reviews
Testing code for robustness, including edge cases, usability, and reliability
Testing product features with users and across devices and environments
Maintaining current knowledge of the latest design and development tools and techniques
You’ll generally work on a two or three person team with frequent pair programming and collaborative design. Teams and projects rotate regularly. While we love working at the office and hanging out together, we also strongly support flexible schedules and working from home (or anywhere) when convenient. Meetings will be rare, as we communicate primarily via Basecamp and chat.
Working at Expected Behavior
We experiment, examine, and change both our processes and our products frequently. We love solving challenging technical problems, such as how to process over two million streaming events every second or performing zero-downtime database migrations. We prefer collaboration to ego-driven decisions and self-direction to needing frequent oversight. We try to solve problems with technology and automation.
We believe the pursuit of personal happiness produces incredible work. Happiness means working on things that make us excited to get out of bed in the morning. It means working where we want. It means setting our own schedules so we can pick our kids up from school or start playing Fallout 4 as soon as we have it in-hand. We encourage quarterly vacations, at a minimum, and we frequently take a week off from our “regular work” just to explore new technologies that excite us.
In addition to a highly competitive salary, everyone here receives full benefits packages including healthcare, a 401k plan with matching, a standing desk, a top-of-the-line MacBook Pro (and peripherals and accessories), and a cell phone plan with the phone of your choice.
We value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
We will consider local candidates and have a relocation allotment for non-local candidates. This is not a remote job. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
