Senior Software Engineer United States
Company: Bad Rabbit
Senior Software Engineer
Bad Rabbit, Inc. is made up of a growing team of experienced professionals who work together to identify, understand, and develop solutions to our clients’ software needs. We work within the medical research sector, and help to maintain and develop tools to assist research institutions deal with administration, compliance, research finance, and regulation. Some of our clients include The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Arizona State University, Penn State, and Dartmouth College.
- Startup culture, without startup stress. Bad Rabbit is a 10-year old, profitable business but we are still a small and growing company. This means you can experience the excitement of being in a fast-growing company, and have plenty of opportunities to grow with us without the crazy hours or instability of a “normal” startup. Speaking of hours, did we mention that, in our view, a great work/life balance calls for a full time definition of 35 productive hours per week?
- Great team. Our team is predominately located in the greater NYC, Philadelphia and Portland, Oregon areas and individuals work from home offices. That’s right: your commute is only as far as your coffee machine. As we are small, we can be very selective about the types of people we hire. That means you’re going to get to work with some really smart, passionate, and friendly individuals. You won’t find a dramatic or competitive work environment here; we’ve set up Bad Rabbit to be a non-political, efficient place where you can expect to be valued and respected for your work ethic and teamwork, no matter which piece of the puzzle you’re working on.
- Unique culture. We strive to be fair, transparent, and flat, meaning you won’t wonder what the “higher ups” are discussing behind closed doors. At Bad Rabbit, everyone is treated equally and as key members of the team. We have a unique revenue sharing scheme which rewards everyone’s hard-work and encourages everyone to contribute to our future growth.
- Amazing work environment. We think if you work hard, you should receive a great salary and generous benefits. We have full health coverage for you, your spouse, and dependents; a great 401K; bonus potential and loads more! We’ll even set you up with a shiny new computer of your choice and a big monitor to go with it. Who doesn’t love that new computer smell?
Flexibility & Remote Work
At Bad Rabbit we pride ourselves on being a forward thinking employer. Most of our developers work from home and set their own hours. That’s right: your commute is only as far as your coffee maker. We have some developers who choose not to start until 12pm, and others who like starting at 7am. Alternatively, some of our employees work a few days a week from our shared office spaces.
We do not micromanage, and think it’s important to give people the responsibility to work in the way that best suits their life-style and productivity. Want to travel and work remotely from Vietnam for a month? Sure thing. How about switching to a 4-day work week? No problem either!
For this position, working remotely is completely acceptable once up to speed, but it is mandatory that candidates for this role are based within commuting distance to Portland, Oregon, as for the first few months it will be important to come into the office for training.
You are an object oriented expert who stares into the face of huge code bases in complicated domains and laughs. The thought of writing code in Notepad++ and not using a fancy IDE doesn’t frighten you. You get a kick out of debugging obscure errors. You write clearly about technical subjects and are an excellent communicator. You will use the ability to structure your work hours and location to maximize your productivity and happiness.
Technical skills required:
- Advanced proficiency with Object Oriented Programming.
- Java or C# or any OOPL (work is not done in either of these languages).

- Experience mentoring junior developers.
