How you’ll work at HeroCoders
Be a part of the solution
You’ll work closely with a product owner and the team to design and implement the features we want to build. Part of your job will be discovering what’s technically possible, figuring out what would be an ideal step-by-step implementation (we don’t do large pull requests and we use feature flags). You will also help us build monitoring tools to make sure everything works as expected, and implement analytics to know if people are actually using what we’ve built.
Live where you want
We’re a remote company since day one. We don’t have an office. Our founders are located in Poland and as long as there’s some time overlap with Central Europe you’re welcome to live anywhere.
No crazy hours
We want everyone to have a full life outside of HeroCoders. We seldom work more than 40 hours per week. There have been rare occasions where things got a little crazy, and people logged some extra hours but then they took additional time off to balance it all out. We work hard and smart, but we’re in this for the long haul; there’s no need to go crazy on the hours.
It’s great to work anywhere but we also believe it’s great to meet in person and have some fun together. We try to organize at least one retreat yearly and spend some quality time together. Eat great food, have a drink, and talk about life. Or do cool stuff together.
