Here are the most ambitious projects you'll get to work on when you join us.

Tech Stack


How the magic happens

We follow an agile process, and deploy to production several times a week. We start the day with a quick tech huddle, which includes all members of the tech team, QA, and product managers. We each talk about what we're working on, ask for help, and discuss what's coming up next.
We use Trelloicon e794befd9f1c0d45b3bf56d1b9fd6ab83680a353853d81729eba034d0472fce8 Trello to track our stories as they move from the backlog --> in progress --> code review --> QA --> deploy. We use Slackicon 0e3ee7eaf90e56ff08e2bda72a9816e754afbdde94c375ab04de4ae9364fd799 Slack for team wide communication (gifs and emoji FTW).

We use code reviews to maintain good code quality, and so other members of the tech team know how things are implemented. We also encourage pairing for knowledge sharing.

We start at

Our office

Come on over, the door is always open.

It's colorful, full of light and good people, and super well located (A/C/E/L/2/3).

We have a well-stocked kitchen. We order at Fresh Direct every week. Pining for something you love, like idk, Nutella? Just ask @stefgreat and we'll have it next week.

We have a ping-pong table for the sporty hacker you are (and to burn off all those chocolate-covered almonds you ate).

Also, beers! Or tea, fancy coffee, seltzer, grapefruit juice...

Oh, and follow us on instagram!

Our mission

Celebrate software and those who make it.

Devpost is the home for hackers. We’re a platform that lets developers showcase what they’re building, learn new skills, and get inspired by the work of their peers. Organizations run online and in-person hackathons to market their tools and initiatives to our active developer community.

What we believe in

5 concepts that drive us

  • Improve 5b454152cf9d438d456b7641713e22a820fffd555d98fd2df89fd41903fca01e

    Relentlessly Improve

    Time is limited. The industry we’re in is constantly changing. We cannot win if we don’t continually improve both our company and ourselves with intensity.

  • Be open cf0e6102e0fbc60026429af456a6885de2843ab3fa9e4dbdcd3b20a0ed40d9cf

    Be Open

    If we are open about things we are and aren’t doing well, honest about everything, and transparent with information, we make better decisions.

  • Work together 2e29e7e4625ed5f7ea19328dcbbbe9fe63077e7966c549e8df88f7d8c9f14f62

  • Respect ff4fb234877cce0476df3dfab0d3eb063ed54db9be063df7eb5f82d2c004cb03

    Respect Everyone

    Respect our users, our paying customers, our city’s community, and each other. We honor diversity because everyone should be equally well-respected. It’s the right thing to do.

  • Mission 553523cfa78b2fd6d2740c1a922a473dd4e031ca52bffba5dd02ac1f03498204

    Live our Mission
