Let’s face it, a company whose mission is human transformation better have some fresh thinking about the employer/employee relationship. 

We do. We can’t cram it all in here, but you’ll start noticing it from the first interview. 

Even our candidate experience is different. And when you get an offer from us (and accept it), you get way more than a paycheck. You get a personal BetterUp Coach, a development plan, a trained and coached manager, the most amazing team you’ve ever met (yes, each with their own personal BetterUp Coach), and most importantly, work that matters. 

This makes for a remarkably focused and fulfilling work experience. Frankly, it’s not for everyone. But for people with fire in their belly, it’s a game-changing, career-defining, soul-lifting move.

Join us and we promise you the most intense and fulfilling years of your career, doing life-changing work in a fun, inventive, soulful culture. 

If that sounds exciting—and the job description below feels like a fit—we really should start talking.

We’re looking for a driven platform software engineer who cares deeply about their craft, and who wants to use their skills to bring about positive change in the world. Someone who is comfortable in the rapidly changing nature of a high pace environment but also adept at moving relentlessly forward: doing what needs to be done to unblock projects that truly deliver value to our users.
