Join the team for takeoff!


If you like working on startups and open-source software, you might like working with us. We're a small team of makers based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan.

We spend our time split between building new startups, working on our own projects, building open-source software, and constantly learning about software and technology.

We’ve built startups that have gone on to receive venture funding and federal grants, and even be acquired!

As a Developer, you will work closely with startups to quickly grow and transition them to viable companies with minimal investment. You will accomplish this by developing and building a successful Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and then quickly iterating thereafter. You will be in a position to work closely with the startup team providing technical and project leadership.

Imagine coming to work in one of the coolest office spaces in Ann Arbor. We are housed in the original cellar for the Northern Brewery. With 20 foot ceilings and fieldstone walls and a meeting rooms with a red-brick arched ceiling, the atmosphere is second to none in Ann Arbor.
