At Kapost, we believe software development is an art.  To that end our culture is centered around hiring exceptional engineers, who are empowered with creative freedom and autonomy.  We focus on code quality and collaboration on projects that have a big impact.  Our team is made up of extraordinary individuals, both personally and professionally.

You will have the freedom to work remotely, typically one day per week.  You will work on a team where everyone has a voice. You will participate in frank discussions about complicated problems and identifying solutions.  You will do all of this in a reasonable amount of time each week, not working 50+ hours in order to get your work done.  And relocation assistance is available if you are the right person for the job.
