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.

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.
