Decoder creates mobile device and tablet products, with a little web thrown in for good measure, for cutting edge startups and businesses across North America. From the first meeting to the first download, we’ll work together to put something delightful into our customers’ hands. We also like to create products with our own in-house ideas and are deeply passionate and embedded into our local startup community.
WHY IT IS INTERESTING TO WORK AT DECODER
The work is incredibly challenging. You’re not just patching up tired, old code or hoping what you are working on will actually make it out there. Our stuff is in production and being used by customers with 24/7 operations that don’t allow for ‘dead air’.
Our existing team is smart and passionate about their work. And we want to keep it that way. So no matter how much we need to hire folks, everyone goes through a thorough technical interview.
WE PAY COMPETITIVE SALARIES
We don’t expect the world in terms of skills and then try to song & dance you with the promise of stock options, future bonuses, and free snacks instead of a decent wage. We pay you a fair and competitive salary.
