Telegraph Hill Developers

  • Software development is my profession.
  • I value having the option to work as a freelancer or an employee.
  • Solving problems is as interesting as coding. Refactoring is as challenging as writing new code.
  • Software development is a like a marathon.
  • My kid’s soccer game is as important as my deadline.
  • Tests are as important an artifact as functional code.
  • Reliable cash flow is as important as equity upside.
  • Software documentation makes objects visible.
  • Experience matters.
  • Non-functional requirements are also my responsibility.


Other Employers

  • Software developers earn good money.
  • Individual heroics is key to technology project success.
  • Maintenance programming is for training.
  • Software development is like a sprint.
  • Work always comes first.
  • Creating tests is for lesser talented people.
  • Stock options are the path to financial independence.
  • My code and its behavior is all anyone needs to know.
  • Operations, security, platform & QA are not my job.                                              

You get the picture:  We’re looking for smart, balanced people who understand the entire lifecycle of software across different industries, who are customer focused, self-motivated and independent, and who are deeply curious about the world and how software can make it better.
