A mission I believe in

We strive to be the place where hackers come together and share what they're building to get recognition, to learn and get inspired.

That's an exciting goal, wouldn't you agree? And you can help us reach it.

How are we going about achieving our mission?

The Feed lets you follow your favorite hackers and those you just met at the last hackathon, and see what they're building.

Portfolios showcase your personal and professional projects, highlight your skills, and illustrate how you've grown as a developer.

Our Hackathon platform powers most of the biggest hackathons on the planet, including MHacks, PennApps, Oculus' Mobile VR Jam and the Uber Hackathon.

These features are being built using Rails 3db00d08639477564d0e7b0638fea7f5ed010fb781ec4172fdce286a708688a4 Rails 4 Redis 92a17a730b941d88efba76eeb51b3207de2421ee8d871617369669a1fcb0d886 Redis Solr f9f38f5dc3c4b34894bfe10101dd4d498fe439c52942fe86f1935236f14b26f7 Solr Getstream 7c71bcf266dbbd8fb7cecdecae325e616dfda37ddc05bf099efc7049ac07292d Stream Backbone 0e4ab3fcf26ec77034a8482a6fe6f8fb63301a20f22796380251d0a81cea6c7c Backbone Marionette 10cfb691f6b9cf4b94172b502896a2d49972d01f62a341c31fc4e696c176dae6 Marionette, amongst other technos.


A typical day at the office

10:30 is late enough to make 90% of your friends jealous. And at the end of the day, isn't that what matters?

Every day the engineering team starts with stand-up. We each talk about what we're working on, ask for help, and discuss what's coming up next with the Product Team and our CEO.

Trello is an integral part of our workflow.

Chelsea 80a6201a6811451a83bd84c2ea583a0688a5825abd06b7dffdd55a52dcc4501d Hungry? Me too. Let's head out to Chelsea Market. Or the Gansevoort Market. Or anywhere really. You can't go wrong in the Meatpacking District.
Except the Sugar Factory. Just trust me on this one.

Time to get some good work done on your own, or by pairing with a teammate.
You might want to turn off your Slack notifications, #random gets a little gif-happy after lunch.

Watch this awesome little interview of @mgerrior talking about pair programming with @nealrs.

Thursday afternoons are special. We call them Dev Thursdays and they're our take on Google's fabled 20% time. Take a crazy idea you're passionate about, build a prototype, and iterate on it.
Several Dev Thursday projects made it to production, like the Devpost Search, the :emoji: support or an unofficial Devpost API!

Power down. Get up. Go play with your dog. We'll see you tomorrow!

That being said, we often get passionate about what we're working on, and I'll probably be working alongside you if you decide to stay late.


Build for your community

Working at Devpost is working for you own community, the hacker community.

It means that you understand the people you're working for. Your opinions and ideas matter. Your input will be welcome on every feature you build.

I don't know about you, but I love that.

We already have an active and growing community of hackers, but we won't be satisfied until every developer is excited to share on Devpost what they're building.

500k+ hackers
32k software projects
278 online hackathons
688 in-person hackathons

The office

I could tell you about the office, or I could show you.

Ha, I tricked you. I'm going to tell you about it anyway.

1. It's colorful, full of light and good people, and super well located (A/C/E/L/2/3).

2. We have a well-stocked kitchen. We order at Fresh Direct every week. Pining for something you love, like idk, Nutella? Just ask @stefgreat and we'll have it next week.
Just kidding, we always have Nutella. Who do you think we are?

3. We have a ping-pong table for the sporty hacker you are (and to burn off all those chocolate-covered almonds you ate). And if you're really good, you're hired, no questions asked.
Maybe I shouldn't have said that, let me ask around.
Apparently, you also need to be handy with Rails :)

4. Also, beers! Or tea, fancy coffee, seltzer, grapefruit juice...

Come work with me

At this point, you should be like "I want to go to there"!
Great! Take a look at our open positions:

By the way, we pay well, we have great insurance, and you can take time off whenever you want.
And that's just for starters.
