Developers across the world can now directly apply to work at GitStart or its affiliated companies by filling our application form here.
Once developers apply, they will be matched to the right jobs and opportunity based on their skillsets. After the matching and review process takes place, developers will be a given a series of coding tasks to perform through the platform. Doing these coding tasks will progressively improve your rank as a developer and the chances of being hired full time.
Positions at GitStart are highly competitive and only a small percentage of developers are able to successfully complete all coding tasks. If you perform well, you will also undergo a series of interviews with the team to determine cultural fitment.
If you are eventually hired, you will be paid better than the market average, in your home country, while having access to a bunch of remote work perks.
Quality is our bread and butter at GitStart.
80% of pull requests submitted by GitStart are merged within 2 review cycles, with 90% of the review comments being fixed within a day. In fact, the majority of review comments are already ironed out during the tech plan review before coding even begins.
All our customers highly appreciate our tech plans with many adopting it even within their internal onsite teams.
At GitStart, security is critical for our survival as a company. We open up local subsidiaries in every country we work and hire developers as our employees with local IDs to ensure we have legal jurisdiction in the areas they work.
Furthermore, every developer works from our web based VSCode powered IDE which means code is never cloned and very fine grain access control can be performed on the codebase.
We also provide corporate liability for enterprise clients through insurance policies from our partners. We are putting infrastructure in place to be fully HIPAA compliant by the end of 2019.
If you have specific concerns please reach out to us at and our compliance team will allay your concerns.
Major advancements in GitStart are automatic on-boarding & ranking specific to each code repository. Every developer is assigned a unique rank per repository & only allowed to continue working on a repository if their rank is beyond a threshold.
New or low rank developers have to undertake older tasks first & seek internal peer reviews to build up their repository specific rank before taking up real tasks.
Furthermore, every developer gets a tech plan written by a high ranking developer.
This makes it easier for the incoming developer to jump into the task and start "thinking" like a senior.
GitStart can automatically ramp up engineering capacity behind-the-scenes by shipping senior level pull requests written by junior developers on the platform!
