Our mission: advance what's possible with software and work to make software creation simpler and more accessible to all.
Working at Unison Computing
Unison Computing is a seed stage startup and a public benefit corp. You can read more about the company's background and our mission in this post. See the Unison Strange Loop talk for an introduction to the core ideas behind Unison and also the Unison documentation site for more about the Unison language.
We love statically-typed functional languages such as Elm, PureScript, Scala, Haskell, and Unison itself. We hope that you'll be excited to learn about them if you haven't already.
We're committed to building a friendly, welcoming, and diverse community of Unison programmers, and it's important to us that you'd commit to this as well.
And probably the most important thing we are looking for: enthusiasm for making computing better, a belief that the (computing) world is what we make of it, and an ability and willingness to learn whatever is necessary to make a new vision of computing a reality. Regardless of your past experience, you will often find yourself in uncharted territory. We think that's part of the fun and hope you will too!
We are based in Somerville, MA, but we are a remote-first company and nobody has even been to the office since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Our hiring is not limited to United States based applicants. Although we ask that some working hours overlap with a 9-5 ET work day, we also recognize that our team members are also parents, hobbyists, family members, and community members, and we are happy that our flexibility allows us to flourish both professionally and personally.
The company offers competitive benefits, paid parental leave, and a vacation policy that emphasizes work/life balance.
We're not currently looking to hire for any roles right now, but even when we're not trying to fill a specific position, we love to hear from folks who are excited about what we're trying to accomplish and want to help make it happen. So check out the How to Apply section, drop us a line, and we'll contact you first whenever we do have an opening that seems like a good fit.
