About Aptible

Our Mission

Aptible helps developers do their best work by empowering them to use any cloud infrastructure securely. We’ve already helped hundreds of innovative companies succeed at becoming trustworthy custodians of sensitive data, and we’re just getting started.

Our Team

Aptible is a fully distributed company, and we’ve been remote since 2013. We’ve grown our customer base considerably since then by focusing on great product. Our team is small but we’re growing fast, and we’re starting to hire for roles and teams we’ve never before had.

This role is an opportunity to be an early contributor and leader at a company that has a substantial revenue base relative to our modest team size and is investing to scale out a company that will accelerate growth.

Our Aptible handbook is where we've set out to help current and prospective Aptible team members get a clear sense of who we are. We endeavor to speak publicly and openly about ourselves, though we do have a handbook-internal where we discuss proprietary matters internally. We invite you to read the handbook to help you determine if Aptible might be a fit for you, and to inspire any questions you'd like to ask us about our team or mission.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We prioritize diversity within our team and value different perspectives, educational backgrounds, and life experiences. We encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
 

About this Role

Aptible's platform as a service makes security and compliance accessible to teams for which it was previously out of reach. As a Senior Software Engineer at Aptible, you’ll be helping us expand our platform while ensuring our product remains secure, stable, and easy to use, so that our customers can quickly and easily deploy secure, compliant infrastructure while focusing on what they do best: building their own products. 
 

Your Impact

  • You’ll design, develop, test, deploy, and maintain features that make it easier for developers to deploy secure, compliant infrastructure without needing to manage any infrastructure.
  • You’ll be expected to frequently share your expertise and unique perspective with the team, helping us identify potential improvements earlier and make better decisions faster.
  • You’ll use your experience as an engineer to help shape the future of Aptible by working with our product team to refine our roadmap and plan new features.
  • You’ll have autonomy and ownership over product features from start to finish.
  • You’ll be given the option to join our 24/7 on-call rotation (for additional compensation).

 

Your Strengths

  • You have experience with a variety of programming languages or tools. The best language to implement a core web API is unlikely to be the best language to implement a metrics collection agent, both of which you’re likely to work on.
  • Desire to improve. You seek to understand why things are the way they are, and think about ways to make them better.
  • Desire to learn. You seek and have the ability to learn the tools we use today, and the new tools we might use tomorrow. Knowledge of what we use today is a plus. Tools include: Ruby, Rails, Postgres, Docker, AWS, Ember.js, Go
  • You’re comfortable interacting with, understanding, and troubleshooting unfamiliar software. When troubleshooting platform trouble or escalated customer issues, you’re likely to have to interact with software you’ve never seen before.
  • User focused. You are interested in building and evolving a platform with real users who depend on us for their core business.
  • Team player. You provide clear, useful documentation to other engineers and enjoy working closely with team members.  

 

Compensation: We set compensation based on benchmarks for comparable companies and positions. Using this data, the target salary ranges for this position are

  • Mid level: $171,000/year
  • Senior: $211,000/year
  • Principal: $233,000/year

Our Benefits

  • Work from Anywhere: Enjoy the flexibility of working from home, a local co-working space, or your favorite coffee shop.
  • Open Vacation Policy: We encourage you to take the time you need, when you need it — for any holiday or matter of personal importance.
  • Paid Parental Leave: We offer job-protected Paid Time Off — 14 Weeks, Fully Paid — for all parents to bond with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child.
  • Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance: We offer comprehensive health care for employees, with 100% of premiums paid by Aptible.
  • Hardware & Software: We help you create your ideal office setup and provide any software you’ll need.

Our Interview Process

We seek to make the experience of interviewing with us as delightful, efficient, fair, respectful, and transparent as possible.
 
A typical process at Aptible might include the following steps, and takes approximately 3 Weeks to complete. We try to move as quickly as possible, but if you have any time constraints, please let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate.
1) An Introduction to Aptible with the Hiring Manager (30 Minutes via Zoom)
2) A Discussion-Based Interview with an Aptible Team Member (45-60 Minutes via Zoom)
3) A Take-Home Work Sample Exercise (NB: You will be compensated for completing this.)
4) A Discussion-Based Interview with an Aptible Team Member (45-60 Minutes via Zoom)
 
We believe that the Work Sample Exercise is an important part of the process, in that it gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your skills in a concrete way. We take the time to design these exercises such that they: a) give you a view into the actual work you'd do at Aptible, and b) are standardized, so every candidate is evaluated using the same criteria.
 
Lastly, Aptible conducts calls with 3-4 References, ideally managers who have directly supervised you in the past and/or colleagues who can speak to your work.
 
If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation, please let us know by completing this form, and we will reach out soon to see how we may be able to assist.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
