You

You want to work directly on impactful missions that will affect real people. You want to work on tightknit teams that deliver on that mission each day. You have a passion for high-quality, reliable and maintainable code. You’re comfortable working side by side with product managers, designers, and clients, making decisions together in order to quickly deliver valuable working software to clients and their users. You’re not afraid to identify what we’re doing wrong so we can fix it, and what we're doing right so we can improve on it. Above all, you judge your success by the success of your team and the happiness of your users.

Us VIDEO

Pivotal Labs is a recognized leader in modern software development practices. We work with many of the world’s most influential companies, helping them not only build great software, but fundamentally create a culture of innovation. Our approach is informed by over 20 years of experience and continuous improvement, and blends lean startup, user-centered design and agile/XP. We also developed Pivotal Tracker, the project management and collaboration tool used by thousands of agile teams worldwide.

Your Day

A delicious breakfast is offered daily and great conversations are enjoyed with fellow Pivots. Breakfast is followed by a quick standup meeting, at 8:30am, and then a full day of pair programming and test driven development which ends daily at 5:30pm as we value a good work/life balance. We do Extreme Programming on balanced teams with designers and product managers focusing on user centered design and lean startup methodologies. We practice and teach an approach to software engineering that applies across industries and organizations, so you’ll experience all types of teams, products, and technologies. And we believe in working at a sustainable pace—for nearly 30 years, we’ve been teaching clients how to build great software without working teams more than 8 hours a day or 5 days a week.
