Working at HipChat

In the past few years HipChat has become the chat tool loved by Quora, Instagram, Tumblr, Wired, and thousands of other great companies. We've been shipping features like crazy but need people to help us take it to the next level.

Why HipChat

Huge impact

Thousands of the brightest teams rely on HipChat to bring their companies together and get work done. You'll be designing, building, and shipping features that they'll love.

Customers: Uber, Netflix, Dropbox, Intuit, Fitbit, and Salesforce

Independence

Independence - We're hiring great people and letting them do what they do best. No handholding or micromanaging. Plus, we actually use our 20% time and ShipIt days to build cool stuff.

ShitIt

Part of a great Company

Right now we're a small team inside Atlassian's beautiful San Francisco office. Atlassian lives by their strong company values and they have a customer list even more impressive than our own.

What we're looking for

We're hiring in both Austin, TX and San Francisco, CA. Most of the jobs are Austin based, but let us know if you’re in SF. Naturally, we’d help out with relocation expenses (you must be eligible to work in the US). We're always happy to talk to smart people, so if you don’t see a role for you below, drop us a note at jobs@hipchat.com. If you know of a great developer who fits the build, we’ll give you a referral bonus.
