FIRST WE NEED
TO BRAG A LITTLE

Austin Software has a culture of trust. We trust our engineers to work from home, talk directly to our clients, and generally, do their thang'. 

We KNOW our engineers are the best of the best so it's easy to trust them to make us look good. 😎

Our engineers are dedicated, hard-working team players who ALWAYS go above and beyond on their projects.

Sound like you?

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN
A BACKEND

DEVELOPER

Austin Software isn’t a factory, we’re a talented group of the best developers in South America and we work in a better way: No fixed priced contracts, no sales driven deadlines, client prices are not secret, and we don’t survive project to project — we work long term with partners that are a good cultural fit. We’re happy to fire bad clients.

Traditional software factories have conflicting incentives and developers suffer the consequences — work extra for less. Our better way of working ensures that developers can grow their careers and work in healthy collaboration with partners. If you are tired of software factories and you consider yourself one of the best developers of your peers, apply to join us, and help us change the factory culture in South America.

You help your team and peers align to the company vision and mission. You consistently leave code and projects better than you found them. You love to up-level the engineers around you by setting a good example and investing time in helping them succeed. Sound like you? Keep reading.
