We create easy to use, highly scalable software. We’re an engineering company through and through, and our top-notch developers understand that good code transforms culture.
We’re bringing the repair world into the 21st century, one cutting-edge feature at a time. Our team authored one of the first web frameworks, wrote a powerful semantic wiki parser, and built the first image-based wiki. And because that wasn’t enough of a challenge, we completely integrated an innovative social reputation system.
Our stack is built with our favorite technologies. We highly value experience with at least some of these components.
Back-end: PHP + MySQL + Memcache + Apache
Storage: Gearmand + MogileFS + S3
Cloud: Amazon AWS, facilitated by RightScale. And yes, our architecture weathered Amazon’s recent downtime with aplomb.
Have a portfolio of code or links to online projects you have worked on. We pay close attention to contributions to open source projects.
Be intensely passionate about good code.
Care deeply about intuitive user interface design.
Recognize that the best software development is social.
Hate the developers of IE6 with a passion that will never die.
Years of experience aren’t necessary—we highly value skill and intelligence—although they can be helpful. We’re open to folks who specialize in either client or server-side development.
If empowering people to control their own hardware excites you, drop us a line.
We’re located in San Luis Obispo, CA—the happiest town in America.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
