  • ABOUT BALENA

    Balena's mission to unlock the potential of physical computing by removing friction for IoT fleet owners. We believe that edge computing is the next major computing paradigm, and every new computing paradigm needs a scalable development platform to match. We're building that platform with a complete, end-to-end solution that makes it easy for any developer to build applications for IoT and the Edge.

    Our software platform helps developers build, deploy and manage code on connected devices. We brought Docker to embedded GNU/Linux devices in 2013 and have been building our toolkit ever since. Our core product is the balenaCloud platform, but we also maintain a variety of successful open source projects including Etcher, openBalena, balenaOS and balenaEngine and made contributions to high-exposure projects such as Docker, Electron, and AppImage. We've also recently released our first hardware product, the balenaFin.

    Our technology is open, standards-based, and proven in production across a wide range of scenarios from robotics, drones, smart buildings, 3D printing, agriculture, medicine, and more. Our investors include OpenView, Threshold Ventures, Aspect Ventures, GE, and Ericsson.

    Balena is a highly distributed, remote-friendly company We rely on clear communication and the rule of "assume positive intent" to help us work together across time zones, cultures and first languages. As an organization, we have little hierarchy, and organize as needed to build complex features and solve big problems.

    • Be highly motivated to produce great code

    • Evaluate customer requirements and other inputs to determine the scope and timing of new functionality

    • Push for delivering delightful user experiences

    • Closely collaborate with our UX/UI designers

    • Move between all major operating systems to ensure we provide consistent experiences

    • Unify how balena builds user interfaces, and actively contribute to Rendition, our shared GUI/CLI components toolkit

    • Good understanding of software engineering practices and how to apply them

    • Excellent written communication skills, and fluency in English

    • Contributions to OSS projects (please include a URL)

    • Having worked remotely before

    • Experience with balena as a user

    ABOUT WORKING AT BALENA

    We come from 15+ countries, and we embrace a remote culture with flexible hours. To us, this means being highly productive while still maintaining a healthy work-life balance. You need to be able to work remotely, and have a dependable internet access available so you can join video calls.

    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diverse backgrounds. We maintain a work environment in which team members are treated with respect at all times and in which thoughts and ideas can be shared openly.

    We communicate proposals, discuss with others in the team and accept feedback if it makes the result better. We value the ability to learn, which is more important to us than knowledge of specific technologies. We know that learning fast means being outside our comfort zone, which is OK -- we'd rather grow than let our assumptions get in our way.

    • Equipment of your choice

    • Remote-friendly

    At Slab, we build beautiful software for teams. We believe that a team's ability to store and organize information ultimately defines their ability to execute. Slab is like a knowledge base or wiki, but reimagined to be fast, intuitive, and powerful. We think of it as a long-term memory for teams.

    We are a small team of experienced developers and designers, on a mission to make work easier. Our CEO is the creator and maintainer of Quill, a popular open-source rich text editor, and sold a previous company focused on collaboration.
