Software Engineers (Frontend, Backend, Fullstack)

At Bird, we’re creating software that help companies build better products. We believe the era of moving fast and breaking things is over, and the next generation of successful products are those that try to do less, but do it exceptionally well. For us, this means delivering more focused products, and paying extra attention to the quality of design, code and reliability.

We’re a small team of generalists and specialists (currently at 9 people) who have a passion for products and like to work in a cross-functional way: our engineers are required to comment on early designs, while our designers understand and can jump into code. If you share our interest in building quality products and enjoy being challenged, then we’d love to hear from you.
