Oyster is on a mission to create a more equal world by making it possible for companies everywhere to hire people anywhere.
In 2021, we have grown rapidly, raising over $70 million in both Series A and Series B rounds and increasing our team size by nearly 10x. And we’re just getting started. As a fully distributed startup, we’ve built an incredibly strong leadership team and employee base across 47 countries (and counting!). We embrace asynchronous communication and collaborative work. We live on our platform, and we’re passionate about improving our product every day.
Hiring people internationally is complicated – engineering, legal, finance, operations, and HR processes all interact to make it happen. We’d like to find people who think this is as interesting a challenge as we do.
We're an inclusive and diverse workplace, and welcome applicants from marginalized groups – the world over
Location: Anywhere within timezones GMT +/- 5h.
You'll be a senior developer on one of our product teams, working on:
You will own the delivery of user stories. You'll be writing code, tests, and debugging issues. You'll apply high standards of code quality and development best practices, such as TDD or continuous integration, and secure code thinking.
You'll play an important role in our delivery process. It will be important to understand the product goals and then provide technical input to specification. You'll participate in discussions on domain model design and coordinate with the Product Owner on acceptance criteria. And you'll collaborate with lead developers on architecture and implementation planning.
We're a young team, you'll help shape our team's process and help us make technical decisions to make us effective and a great place to work as a developer.
We also expect you to support developers by answering questions and offering support when needed, or to pair on complex problems.
And to advance technical excellence at Oyster by researching new tools and practices, taking initiative on technical improvements and refactorings, and moving best practice forward through pairing, discussions in the team.

On the technical side, we're looking for:
Automating processes to hire and manage people across 100 countries is hard. Doing so while creating a delightful experience for our users, with robust and maintainable software, and a customizable and flexible platform, is very, very hard. This is the challenge you'll be taking on if you come to work for Oyster.
Our team. We have have a team of about 8 developers, 2 designers, 2 in product. We're growing fast.
Hours. We have a daily Zoom standup at 12pm GMT. We need developers to normally have significant overlap (say, three to four hours) with the hours of 9am - 6pm GMT, but otherwise your working time is very flexible.
We use Kanban, and have a monthly cadence of product investigation, delivery, and time for technical sustainability. (We're on Linear.app.) We have fortnightly retrospectives.
Team We have weekly dev team meetings to discuss plans for the platform, where everyone is encouraged to bring topics, and regular brown bag lunch sessions are encouraged for developers to make presentations.
Hackathons and hack days. We have monthly hack days for developers to work on things they are interested in, and quarterly multi-day Hackathons bringing in people from other parts of the business together with product and development.
