Great careers start here. Pivotal Labs is a recognized leader in agile software development, and we have been building high reliability systems for clients for over 20 years.

If you're looking for somewhere to do serious agile development on web projects, Pivotal Labs is the place. We're looking for brilliant software engineers to join our web development team in New York City. If you want to share your knowledge while learning from others, work sustainably, and work on some serious projects, we think you'll really enjoy working with us. 

Job Description: 

  • Developing in RoR and JavaScript
  • Test Driven Development
  • Pair Programming
  • Aggressive Refactoring
  • Working directly with clients to manage requirements
 

Why join us?


  • We're agile. That means test-driven development with tools like RSpec, Test::Unit, JUnit, Jasmine and Selenium. It means pair-programming, refactoring, and state-of-the-art continuous integration, build, and deployment infrastructure.
  • We're fun. Besides daily catered breakfasts and beer nights, what does that mean? It means we've got a real culture. We share it by rotating developers between projects. With us, you may work on five, six, or even more projects in a single year.
  • We're good, and always improving. We have daily stand-up meetings and regular retrospectives. We figure out what we're doing wrong, so we can fix it, and what we're doing right, so we can make it even better. Working here means you get better at what you already do well, every day.
