We are particularly interested in your past experiences and achievements and would love to see any material resulting from such prior work.

Other Information

Candidates for this position can work remotely, although occasional travel may be required. Permanent on-site work at our offices in Houston is also possible (and preferred). We will consider both full-time and part time employees (and even contractors).

Who We Are

CODE is a developer company, focusing on helping people and companies build better software. We do so in various ways, ranking from consulting and training (our "bread and butter") to community involvements, presentations, writing, and - of course - publishing CODE Magazine. We make ourselves known by providing great value and services, not just to paying customers, but the whole software community in general. We foster a distributed, collaborative community both within CODE as well as outside. We are looking for candidates who see themselves thrive in this type of environment and are excited about this approach.

What We Value:

  • Collaboration: We believe in collaboration and working together, no matter where people are.
  • Empathy: We believe in putting people first.
  • Inclusiveness: We believe in including everyone, no matter their background, race, religion, age, economic status, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, or any similar discriminating labels.
  • Thoughtfulness: We believe in deep thought and reason to achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Quality: We believe in putting in the effort to make things of high quality.
  • Stakeholder Priorities: We consider it important to think of our customers (and other stakeholders) and focusing first on what the best scenario is for them. We then think about how to make that possible.
  • Positive Impact: We believe in making the developer community better through our various initiatives.

Why You Should Join

You can help us make an impact on the developer community, rather than just a single project or company. At CODE, you will work on various projects and we will seek your input even for initiatives beyond your top priorities. For instance, we will ask for your input on our events, magazine, or products, even if that is not your primary occupation within the company.

We also want our "CODErs" to develop their own careers in various ways, whether that is learning in the form of training and attending events, or whether that is making yourself more visible in the industry through writing, presentations, and more. In short: We aim to make being associated with CODE a positive impact on people's careers even beyond CODE.

We also aim to keep "CODErs" healthy, motivated, focused, and productive. We have a comprehensive benefits and compensation package that goes beyond just financial compensation. Our employees receive a competitive compensation package including medical benefits, retirement plan (with generous match), life insurance, long and short term disability, vacation, sick and holiday pay, casual atmosphere, fitness benefits, and more.

Where We Can Hire

Our headquarters is in Houston, TX (with satellite offices in other places), but our CODErs are all over the planet. We can hire full-time employees in North America and Europe. We engage with contractors all over the world. We are well set up for remote working and distributed teams. However, note that travel to CODE offices as well as events and customer engagements will occasionally be required.
