Senior Developer - Software Arts & Sciences at Ripl
Bellevue, WA, US

We, at Ripl, love to work with people who want to make expressive and rich software, make customers ecstatic about that software, and do it with awesome colleagues in a radically collaborative and humanistic culture.

Ripl invites you to bring your skills, interests, and experiences to a real agile environment with XP practices. As a software development artist (programming is an art form, after all) you will help drive engineering at Ripl by building the leading marketing platform for small businesses, individuals, and community organizations. You will share your skills with a team of like-minded crafters, together pushing the boundaries of design, architecture, and technology. You will take pride in the quality of your work and your teamwork. You will share your expertise with teammates through pair programming, conversation, consultation, and countless other ways. You will ship, you will ship, and you will ship some more. Most of all, you will have fun building, designing, developing, and programming—sharing your art with the world.

Ripl’s Commitment to Our Team’s Growth and Development

We are proud of our culture. Our cultural foundation is love. We hire people, not roles. We value emotion, not just rationality. We value diversity over superficial conformity; we refuse to bucket, stereotype, or discriminate. We choose passionate freedom over poorly spent authority. We choose alignment over fear-driven command-and-control systems. We seek alignment in all we do: with our customers, the business, our teammates, and our individual selves. We endeavor to design our culture—we nurture it so that it nurtures us. Our goal is an ecology of ideas, where the best idea is always adopted, regardless of its source. To this we commit, as a team, with the fullest possible sincerity and intention.

Come and join us as we build a company that innovates both within and without; a company that treasures team, collaboration, and love; and a company that provides freedom and other riches for people who are effective and passionate.
