About the Team: The Internal Development Team is a small (currently four person) department at the heart of all internal systems and development at Adafruit, complemented by several talented off-site developers. Code is written, QA’d, and deployed very quickly, with as many deployments made during a single day as necessary. We’re always willing to adopt new technologies as they become appropriate, and each team member is responsible for the design and implementation of their own projects. Hours can be flexible, although a 40-hour work week is expected from each team member. We value live/work balance and it is rare, if ever, that team members work more than 40-hours per week.
About Adafruit: Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT hacker & engineer, Limor “Ladyada” Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Adafruit has grown to over 100+ employees in the heart of NYC with a 50,000+ sq ft. factory. Adafruit is a 100% woman owned company and does not have any loans or VC funding.

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
