  • You will write beautiful, well-commented code and hold the rest of your team accountable to those same standards.
  • You will contribute your unique voice and ideas to our development process, which we are constantly tweaking and refining. Likewise, you will be open to trying out new workflows, tools, and team structures.
  • We are always trying to improve the ways we automate tasks that cause boredom and error. You will be a key part in contributing to this effort through things like continuous integration and test driven development.
  • You will meet and communicate with clients directly to translate their needs into elegant, efficient technology solutions.
  • You will contribute to our many open-source projects and support the community of developers who rely on them.

What You'd Get 

P'unk Ave is built on a culture of trust and autonomy so the focus is on meeting your responsibilities and finding ways to make our company better. Most of the team works approximately from 9 to 5, but with a great deal of flexibility. We have a generous vacation policy and encourage you to use it to stay healthy, engaged, and inspired. We also support sabbaticals.

We strive to maintain a culture that makes our team members want to be in the studio. Benefits include medical, dental, and vision insurance. We have a retirement plan, with matching. Because we believe in on-going learning, each person has a discretionary yearly conference budget. We also believe that everyone should share in our success through profit sharing

Locally roasted coffee is delivered weekly and made fresh daily, but if you prefer something else in the afternoons we have a rotating draft beer in our kegerator at all times. A full lunch is cooked in-house and prepared every Monday during our weekly kick-off meeting.

We are also located in the heart of South Philly, right on Passyunk Ave, which is one block away from the Italian Market - accessible within reasonable walking distance from the Broad Street Line.

Most of all you would get the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in Philadelphia.
