SilkStart is a leading provider of SaaS association management software, all built on Python. As a company we’re a tightknit team of 13 and growing. We offer competitive salaries, full benefits, flexible scheduling, and plenty of time off. We want everyone to think and act like owners, so every employee gets stock options meaning you are, in fact, a part owner. We offer autonomy in a respectful and collaborative environment where you get to make a difference and have some fun.
At SilkStart you can take a lead role in developing an early stage technology platform and learn as we grow. We’re in the process of modernizing our stack and scaling up our infrastructure, so you’ll get to work on high performance enterprise architecture in Python. Areas we’re working on include: distributed web services with Pylons and Pyramid, database design with Postgres and SQLAlchemy, message bussing with RabbitMQ, caching and pub-sub with MongoDB and Redis, and dev-ops automation on the AWS cloud stack. We have a rapidly growing client base with interesting and challenging problems to solve.
Our leadership team has done this before, more than once. We’re a well run company with a real product with clients and revenue. People leave on time, timelines are reasonable, schedules are flexible, and we encourage outside interests with options like remote hours, less than full time positions, and unpaid leave. We’ll pay for your gym membership, the books you want to read, and workshops and seminars to keep you growing. Our core values are: Customer Obsession, Continuous Improvement, Teamwork, Be the Change you Seek, and Life Balance.
