Job type: Full-time

Category: Software Dev


About us

We are Serverless Inc, the creators of the popular and synonymous open source framework for building Serverless applications.

In 2015, we created a project called the Serverless Framework. Our mission was to make serverless development easy.  A community rallied behind the project, contributing to the open source core, offering their opinions, insights, and sharing their passion.  Today, the Serverless Framework is the de facto standard for serverless application development and deployment, managing nearly one million deployments per month.

As the adoption of serverless has grown, so too have the needs of today’s serverless teams. In addition to tooling that simplifies the development of serverless applications, these teams need tools to simplify collaboration, operations, integrations and much more. To address these user needs we recently launched the Serverless Framework Enterprise.

As we embark on our next chapter, we are looking for seasoned developers to join our team. Our tight knit team is comprised of user focused, product minded technologists who are low on drama and high on performance. We are distributed by location but united in our purpose. We value accountability and fully own our successes and failures. Most importantly, we believe that people do their best work when empowered. If you are on a journey to find a team that crafts ingenious cutting edge solutions while having fun together, we are your destination.
