Accounting Manager (m/f/d)

About Garden

Garden’s mission is to keep developers productive and happy in the cloud-native era.

Docker, Kubernetes, and other cloud-native technologies have made us better than ever at operating our systems in production, but the day-to-day development experience has been left lagging.

Developers spend less time in flow, and more time waiting for builds, debugging scripts, or otherwise fighting their tools. We’re here to fix that.

Our platform—which includes our open source core product—allows developers to work on distributed systems in remote, production-like dev environments while enjoying the fast and frictionless feedback loops we’ve expected when developing a single service locally.

It’s a platform that democratizes the kind of advanced developer tooling that only the largest software companies have the resources to build and maintain.

We’re still a small team and you’d be joining at a time when you can have a huge impact on our processes and our culture.
