Bravely is hiring fullstack engineers to join our growing team!  We're a fast-growing, early-stage startup creating elegant experiences leveraging modern technologies and techniques to promote workplace health.

At Bravely, we consider a potential technical solution to every problem.  This may mean writing one-off scripts to scrape sales leads, spinning up new sites for timely marketing campaigns, or realizing a manual solution is better than a technical one. Our team focuses on developer happiness and craft without taking ourselves too seriously.

We’re an early stage startup and to us, that means our short-term goal is to find fit, find growth, and leverage technology to stay lean and build solutions quickly.  Our long-term goal is to solve intractable problems with a combination of humans and machines and share those solutions with everyone.

About Bravely

Studies show that 70% of employees are avoiding a conversation with their managers, colleagues, or direct reports. At Bravely, we call this the Conversation Gap—and we’re on a mission to close it. (We recently published a study about this here.)

Using our platform, employees can connect with a professional coach (we call them “Pros”) to talk about whatever’s on their mind—whether they’re stressed about an upcoming performance review, dealing with unfair treatment, or just feeling stuck and unsure about how to advance in their role. The result? They feel comfortable and confident approaching things they may have been avoiding, and are happier and more productive in turn.

Our Team

We’re a fast-growing, venture-backed startup dedicated to building products that shape the future of work.

As a team, we practice what we preach: we encourage every member on our team to communicate openly and honestly, and we’re obsessed with cultivating an environment in which people feel comfortable bringing their full selves to the office every day. (In fact, every Bravely employee has access to their own Pro, who they can speak with any time they want to talk about their career.)

We also love dogs and cold brew, and you can find both in our Flatiron workspace every day.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
