Groove-tech is a product-driven software company ( & -). With thousands of enterprise users and millions in venture funding, we're building the best recruiting software in the world. A frictionless, usable, robust and highly scalable product that helps companies find and meet great people. The quality, design and usability of our software is what sets us apart from the competition. It's good to be an engineer in a company that values good engineering above all.

We have a team of remarkably talented and friendly developers, a strong engineering culture and a dogged emphasis on customer-centric design. We're working on all sorts of exciting areas of application development: web, mobile, infrastructure, performance, UI/UX design, integrations with dozens of web services, API development, modern front-end frameworks, scalability, video, natural language processing, data science and usability engineering. Agile methodology and test-driven development are not things we read about in blogs, it's what we do every day.

Our technology stack consists of Rails and Java apps running PostgreSQL and HBase DB on the Heroku and AWS. Our MVC architecture relies on REST APIs to connect internal building blocks and external systems. Some of the development and platform tools we use include jQuery, Backbone, Solr, Redis, Braintree, Papertrail, New Relic and Mailgun.

We invest in training junior engineers (you will learn from the best) and re-training experienced developers in the technology stack we use. If you're an exceptionally good engineer who wants to work in a world-class software company, you're in the right place.


We're looking for developers in all fields of SaaS application development. We have several teams working on different areas from the core application to mobile/tablet applications, integrations, natural language processing, data science and video technology. We will find the right team for you depending on your skills and technology interests.


Our goal is to create a company where employees enjoy benefits that make them more productive and contribute directly to the development of their professional skills. We want to be able to attract the best of the best, and make sure they keep getting better. On top of an exciting, vibrant and intellectually challenging workplace and a competitive salary, we are offering:

  1. Stock option plan
  2. Private health insurance plan
  3. Free meals, snacks and beverages
  4. Workstation hardware of your choice
  5. Personal training budget (including international conferences)
  6. Flexible working hours, ability to occasionally work from home

Workable is most decidedly an equal opportunity employer. We want applicants of diverse background and hire without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, disability, age, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law.
