Bit Quill Technologies. You likely have never heard of Bit Quill Technologies. That is a good thing.
We are helping Bit Quill build and add to its team of seasoned and smart software engineers (currently at 25). The founders still code and everyone on the team are like you: people who want to be employees (share in the equity of the company) and who code (because it brings them joy :-)). You will be working closely with either the clients’ product managers or senior engineers. The work is typically a core component of a major product release. If you want to continue working for a software company BUT don’t care for the politics or drama sometimes associated with a larger software company, Bit Quill offers a place where you will be happy working with like-minded people and be rewarded not just in a competitive compensation but an opportunity to be a fellow owner like the rest of the team.
