Software Engineer at iFixit- Adafruit Jobs Board

Ifixit Iphone 3Gs

This sounds like a dream gig! – Software Engineer at iFixit / Adafruit Jobs Board

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.

  • Front-end: MooTools
  • 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.

You should:

  • 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.


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
