Software Developer

You're an experienced full-stack developer ready to make a huge impact at a growing startup. You take pride in what you do, and you're passionate about Koan's mission to help every organization achieve its purpose.

First, a little about Koan.

Most organizations struggle to achieve their strategic goals. Teams work in isolation, priorities get lost, and tracking spreadsheets and emails don't scale. Koan is a suite of software tools that are helping companies like New Relic, SurveyMonkey, and Disney collaborate, build alignment, and engage with each other across timezones and functions. This isn't enterprise HR software that employees dread using. Koan wins when we've created a product that is highly engaging, valuable, and that people genuinely love.

Our small, venture-backed team includes a founder of Jive Software (NASDAQ:JIVE) and a tight group of startup veterans all deeply committed to building a world-class company. For us, that means:

Why you.

Working here has its benefits. As an tight-knit group with a Silicon Valley mindset and a Portland ethos, our team enjoys:

We also offer new parents paid family leave, including for adoptions: 12 weeks paid leave for birthing parents and 10 weeks for their partners. And when you're ready to return to work, we'll work with you on the schedule you need.

Though we're a distributed team, our working hours (typically 9a - 5pm Pacific Time) are inspired by our geographic center in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

Koan is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

We realize that many highly-qualified people won’t check every box on the requirements list, and that’s OK! If you’re passionate, curious, and open to learning on the job, we encourage you to apply anyway.

For now, we're only accepting applicants who are authorized to work in the US.
