About us

We are a bootstrapped, distributed company that builds products that help people in small businesses to do better work. 

Our goal is to build a pleasant work environment and a sustainable business. We are not looking to raise external funding for at least the next couple of years. 

Our focus right now is on Pixie (, a Basecamp-style SaaS for accountancy firms. We see a path to expand to other professional services down the line, like legal, etc. but currently this is the market segment we can understand better. Pixie’s just launched and off to a great start, feedback is positive and encouraging.

We’re a small founding team of 2 - a designer and a business/product/many-hats person - and a few contractors. We’re looking to bring in someone to work together with us (not for us) and lead the software engineering side. 

This is a hands-on, software engineering, with a  salary which we are looking to increase in the first year as the business grows. We are also offering an equity stake. As part of the founding team, you’ll have shared control of our products and roadmaps, get a direct line to customers, and exposure to as many aspects of the business as you want. And as we grow, we hope to work together in building a small engineering team around you.


About you

We need you to have demonstrable experience with these technologies:

  • Ruby on Rails 5, Omniauth + Devise, RSpec, Capybara, Apartment
  • AWS infrastructure: EC2, IAM, RDS, S3, Elasticache, etc.
  • PostgreSQL 10+, Redis
  • Git, Gitlab (optional)


It'd be brilliant if you already have some Vue.js experience, but if you've done things in React that works just as well.

On the non-technical side, you feel comfortable with the idea of working on a distributed team, being self-driven, accountable and asking questions.

Ideally you have some interest in owning a small software company. These are our values:
