On Fridays, we have “investment time” when we learn new tools and techniques, work on open source, create new products, write blog posts, and try to make ourselves, each other, and the community better.
Each month, we host board game nights, Arduino nights, Vim meetups, technical reading groups, design comunity meetups and other events at our offices.
Compensation depends on experience. thoughtbot offers great medical benefits and a retirement plan. We pay 100% of travel expenses to speak at conferences. We also get the whole company together once a year to share ideas and build comunity.
