Our mission is to give everyone a chance to change their life with code, no matter where they’re from. We let promising engineers get real-world experience by working on our client apps, which allows our clients to turn more of their ideas into reality. And it’s working:

GitStart.com automatically manages AI models and developers across the globe. Engineering teams assign tickets and get back ready to merge PRs. This requires rebuilding the entire engineering stack end-to-end, with pieces like:
We are supported by the best investors in our field, Neo, YC, Bonfire VC, and the world’s best engineering leaders:
🔥 >50% former founders, many of mission driven organizations like mPharma (Africa’s best health tech startup, 1k people $100m raised) and CodePhenix (Europe’s largest coding bootcamp for inmates)
🧑🔬 Patents holders
🧠 A national math olympiad winner and former Typescript team member
🌍 ~16 nationalities for ~19 people
🤫 And more: a published poet, a sailing world champion, a cricket team coach, two musicians drawing hundreds for concerts, etc.
Also, the number one thing newcomers notice is that people are truly kind 😇. More on this when we meet!
You’re right, we need a picture with the new logo!
Our default is to Trust people
We Care for each other
We value Extreme Ownership
We act with Positive Intent
We don’t have ego/political games because we always (rightfully) assume positive intent from teammates.
We are Scrappy and we optimize for speed
⚖️ 10 years options exercise windows — most startups employees never exercise their hard-earned equity options because the standard clause forces them to buy it within 3 months of departure. We care so much about equity that on top of giving offers way above market, we switched to a new legal documents software solely because the old one didn’t support changing the default “3 months” to “10 years”.
🛂 We’ll sponsor your visa — to wherever you want. We already support a long list of countries. If your dream country isn’t on the list, we’ll go the extra mile to make it happen.
👋 “We got your back” budget — If you need daycare for your kids, new headphones, or a taxi ride, we got your back. Even if it doesn’t fall into a predefined “perk and benefit” category.
🌱 Growing you plan — we’ll help you build your growth plan and support you with all our resources. We’ll intro you to people from Neo, YC, and our own networks, support you with budget to hire coaches and join communities, etc.
🌎 We are a fully remote company — We hire the best people in the world without restriction. Work wherever and in whichever timezone you want, and travel around the world to meet the team during quarterly onsites (pictures here).

Finally, we offer competitive compensation and meaningful equity along with a chance to make a significant contribution to changing the lives of millions of engineers across the world.
We are weird about hiring. We’re skeptical of resumes and we don’t trust interviews (we’re happy to talk though!). Since nothing beats working together, we love inviting people for a hackweek (or hackweekend) - come hack on a problem with us and see if you like it!
It’s compensated, of course. And fast: we typically extend offers within 3 working days, starting from the end of the hackweek.

See, I've been in the industry for quite a long time. And I had lots of interviews and interviewers throughout my career. Some were good, while some sucked big time; as usual. HOWEVER, and I'm not even exaggerating when I say this - interview experience with GitStart was not even ONE OF the best, but absolutely THE BEST I ever had in my 15 years career. Every person that I spoke to in the process was EXTREMELY charismatic, really eager to learn about myself and, what's more, it was absolutely obvious that they LOVED GitStart. I have NEVER EVER EVER seen anything even remotely like this. So how was the process? Amazing! I actually enjoyed it and was looking forward to more of it :D
