Description:

We’re Charlie, and we’re on a mission to equip thousands of startups and ambitious small businesses to deliberately craft their culture every day.

Charlie builds progressive HR solutions for startups and ambitious small businesses to successfully manage their teams and intentionally craft their culture.

We’re looking for a Software Developer to join our growing product development team – and help us to fulfil our product vision implementing great software.

What is a "Software Developer III"?

  • Working with other developers and reviewing code to maintain a high code quality and share knowledge across the team
  • Collaborating with your cross-functional teammates, such as Product Designers and Product Managers
  • Team and company-wide meetings where we discuss strategy, provide updates and share feedback

  • Frontend: our design system is built with Ruby, JavaScript and Sass
  • Infrastructure: Heroku, PostgreSQL, Redis, Heroku CI, Stripe API

We will still consider applications even if you don't meet every single one of the above requirements, so don't be put off if you don't match them absolutely perfectly!
