Engineering | Mountain View, CA

Job Description


Who we are

Outright dramatically streamlines the work involved with running a small business by helping entrepreneurs organize their income and expenses, keep their businesses on track, and pay the right taxes. We help small businesses thrive in our connected world.

Outright was born when its founders, Ben and Kevin, vowed to end the struggle that millions of small business owners face daily: spending too much time and effort organizing their financial data.

They gathered a team of experienced, passionate Rails engineers that would make any high tech entrepreneur drool, and the small but growing, agile shop has been releasing weekly improvements to the Outright service since late 2008.

Outright’s office is in the heart of downtown Mountain View, where we take pleasure in a huge array of restaurants and bars, plenty of in-office athletics, and a healthy dose of hard work.  

Check out and for some actual code. We value pair programming, TDD, and clean code. We are an entrepreneurial, self-motivated, and passionate team that loves to build great products.


We are looking for you to design, implement and maintain tools, libraries and infrastructure components.  Work closely with engineering and operations to design, build, and maintain systems.  You’ll also be debugging and solving site problems.   Damn opinionated. If something isn't up to our level of quality, even if it's not what you’re working on directly, we expect you to make a stink and help us improve it. If you enjoy making world-class products and working with small team of highly talented developers, is the place for you.
