UI/UX, Application, and Website Designer For 16-Person All-Remote SaaS Company at Action Verb () (allows remote)

Hi! We’re Action Verb.


We build two Infrastructure-as-a-Service Platforms that empower organizations worldwide.


Our products include BrickFTP, a hosted file sharing service for business, and Vae Platform, a unique web hosting platform with an integrated CMS system.


Our company consists of 15 (but growing to 19 by the end of the year) full time USA-based staff, as well as sales and support outposts in France, Germany, and Latin America.


Our infrastructure platforms are used by over 2,000 enterprises and SMBs, including Mozilla, Canonical, UPS, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.


Our Success Strategy


We’ve been able to achieve the rare combination of high double-digit annual growth and industry leading profitability.


We do it by aggressively recruiting the absolute best and brightest people and structuring our company in a way that makes them want to work here forever.


It’s easy to say, but exceptionally hard to execute. Here’s how we do it.


We Practice Holacracy


We are one of the early adopters of Holacracy, a new style of running an organization in a self-organizing manner that draws inspiration from agile software development and lean manufacturing processes.


Rather than hiring people for exactly one job description, we instead look to find well rounded team members with skills in software engineering, design, marketing, sales, and our other needs who are interested in filling multiple roles within the organization.


As a self-organizing team, our people have multiple roles and our role descriptions are regularly updated via small iterations. As their interests change and our needs change, the roles people fill change dynamically over time.


"Most startups believe in iteration of their products. Now they need to apply the same thinking to their organizations."
– Adam Pisoni, Yammer co-founder & CTO


Holacracy is not unstructured: you’ll have a clear understanding of your current roles and responsibilities, as well as a set of rules and processes for changing those roles and responsibilities in real time.


Even though Holacracy is a lot to learn, we have a great onboarding process and the rest of our team will guide you through your first few months. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend a weeklong official Holacracy training event at our expense.


MORE ABOUT OUR HOLACRACY PRACTICE


We also practice Open Book Management, meaning that we share the exact details of our Balance Sheet and P&L Statement with our entire team in real-time, ensuring that our staff has the data they need to treat the business as if it were their own.


MORE ABOUT OPEN BOOK MANAGEMENT


Our team members work from home and choose their own hours, allowing them to make time for family, recreation, vacations, or anything that is important to them.


Every full-time team member gets 10 company-wide holidays per year as well as 20 paid time off days intended to be used for vacations. Go have fun. Don’t work all the time.


Our team members also work hard, are constantly learning, and accomplish a ton for the company in the time that they are working.


Our team spends at least 12 days together face-to-face per year at four to six in-person meetings spread out through the year and hosted all over the country. We try to do these meetings in cities that are fun to visit. In the last few years, we’ve been to Austin, Orlando, Minneapolis, San Diego, Las Vegas, New York City, Detroit, and Fort Lauderdale.


Design Skills We’re Looking For


This position is designed to appeal to designers who are not afraid to get their hands dirty writing code. You will be working on web applications, mobile apps, desktop apps, marketing websites, and email.


We are looking for candidates who bring the following skills to the table:



  • Experience with web application design, marketing website design, and offline (print) design

  • Comprehensive understanding of UI/UX principles

  • Solid web front-end development skills in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Even though we have a great team to help you integrate your designs with our applications, in order to be a great application designer, we expect that you can implement enough JavaScript to make your designs come to life (even in a basic way).

  • Experience and interest in both actual application design and marketing design. We want our designers to be able to work on both sides.

  • History designing and supporting actual applications that have seen production usage with a large userbase.


Our best applicants tend to have at least 5 years history of producing marketing websites and web or mobile applications.


We expect to see an extensive portfolio that includes both static websites and applications.


Some of Our Core Beliefs


We believe that everyone in the company should have programming skills. We want everyone here to be able to take their ideas and bring them to life. For designers, that means you have to be able to write code. It doesn’t mean you have to be an expert, but you should at least be able to implement intermediate-level jQuery and also work with React.


We believe that allowing and supporting 100% remote work gives us access to great people we wouldn’t otherwise be able to hire. We tend to hire folks who are later in their careers, which means they usually have their family established somewhere. By offering remote work, we can hire the best people, no matter where they’re located.


We believe that the best way we can acquire top talent is by being an amazing place to work. Work from home, travel with the team, and surround yourself with top tier people at Action Verb. Read about everything we’ve done to make working at Action Verb great.


We believe that building great infrastructure and platform products requires a great internal infrastructure. We have Continuous Integration, a full staging environment, and considerable test coverage. We built our own application deployment system. We self-manage our server environment on Amazon Web Services and custom hardware.


We believe that engineers should support what they build. We expect our teammates to take responsibilty for the engineering decisions they make. If there are performance problems in production, nobody should have to chase anyone down. All engineers participate in a 24/7 on-call rotation and all engineers speak to customers.


We believe in building products that we actually use ourselves. We are our own toughest critics and we put all of our products through their paces every day.


READ THE REST OF OUR CORE BELIEFS


Salary and Pay


As you might expect from a company that is so open, we also post our salary information right here in the job post. We will pay you $100,000 in your first year, plus a great benefits package, and a $2,500 signing bonus to purchase a new computer.


After your first year with Action Verb, we will update your salary based on the value that you have been able to demonstrate for the company. We continue to update salary levels every year. It is possible to reach a pay level of double the starting salary if you come in and absolutely crush it.


We fully pay for your health insurance (exact plan details depend on your state of residence), and we’ll pick up the tab for 50% of your spouse or family if they wish to also join the healthcare plan. We want your family to be healthy.


We recognize that other companies may offer higher initial salary offers or signing bonuses, but at Action Verb, we know that for our ideal candidate, the exact level of pay is just one criteria by which they choose where to work. Our goal is to offer the greatest work environment possible and pay people well enough to make it possible for them to join the team. Come learn our way of working, take on as many roles as you can, and establish yourself as a valuable asset to us. Then after your first year, we’ll re-evaluate your salary and make sure it’s more than fair, given the value you’ve been able to generate for the company.


Plus, you can join Action Verb Risk Free because of our $7,500 Quitting Bonus Within Your First 90 Days.


We get it. Holacracy is new. Working remote is hard. We love these things about our culture, but you might not be sure if you do. Or maybe you just don’t trust us that we really do embody the Core Beliefs on this webpage. To our prospects who may be on the fence about joining Action Verb, we want to make one more offer to push you over the edge and convince you to join us.


If you don’t like working at Action Verb for any reason, quit within the first 90 days and receive a $7,500 quitting bonus. That should be enough to keep you and your family afloat while you decide on your next path. We hope that you won’t take us up on the offer, but we want you to feel good knowing that it’s there.


Ready To Apply?


Working here isn’t for everyone, but if you think it might be for you, please apply.


We only read cover letters in our first screening round, so make sure yours counts. The following are topics we’d like to see addressed in your cover letter:



  • Why does this opportunity specifically appeal to you?

  • How well do you align with Our Core Beliefs? Is there anything you would add or change?

  • Why would working remotely for Action Verb change your life for the better?

  • Are you familiar with Holacracy? Any questions or concerns?

  • What’s lacking in your current work arrangement that we could improve?

  • What are your philosophies on design?

  • What does designing great software look like?


We look forward to reading your letter!

Java Software Engineer - Bringing Pizza to the People at Granbury Solutions () (allows remote)

It’s not the cheese that matters anymore.  With Domino’s testing drones and self-driving cars, and robots distributing the pepperoni, what is a local pizzeria chain supposed to do to keep up?   That’s where you come in.  We’re looking for a solid backend developer to join a real David and Goliath struggle against the major national pizza chains.  We're building a technology arsenal that independent pizza restaurants and mom and pop operations can use to compete toe to toe with the big three.  If you’ve suffered late at night, struggling with subpar online ordering systems, in a desperate attempt to get your double pepperoni fix, here’s your chance to save countless fellow pizza lovers from frustration.     


We’re migrating our tech stack from Java / Spring / mySQL / Angular to  Java/Spring/CouchBase /Vue.js


You'll work with people who are as nice as they are smart.  You'll deal with a minimum of corporate nonsense and get the freedom to do things right.  And you'll do all this from the comfort of your own home.  This is a remote position, but you'll keep in touch with your team with daily virtual standups.  We'll pick a spot on the map every so often and get together for a technical conference or in person design confab.  But most importantly, you'll give hard working locally owned businesses a real chance in their struggle against the empire.  Seriously.

  • Exposure to at least one modern Javascript SPA framework like Vue, Backbone, Ember, or Angular.

  • Excellent communication skills.

  • A desire to do things right and the ability to take ownership of difficult problems.


Preferred Qualifications



  • Continuous integration platforms like Bamboo or Jenkins (Jenkins preferred).

  • Enough experience with JPA or Hibernate to know why they need to be phased out.

  • Experience with a configuration management system like Chef, Puppet, Ansible or AWS Cloud Formation.

  • Enough experience with Agile development methodologies to see their strengths and weaknesses.

  • Payment card industry experience or experience building PCI compliant systems.

  • Experience with asynchronous messaging systems like MQ Series, JMS, or Rabbit MQ.



  • A deep appreciation of the simplicity of a margherita pizza combined with a fluent understanding of the advantages of coal vs. wood-fired ovens to produce such perfection.


This is a remote position, but you must have the right to work in the US legally.  Offshore applicants will not be considered, but this isn't for political reasons.  It's for we're-not-big-enough-to-make-offshore-work-effectively reasons.

What your day looks like


With your first (of many) cup of coffee in hand, you skip the traffic-packed drive and stroll down the hall to your home office. You turn on your monitor and join the hangout for your daily Standup. Call done, you hit play on your favourite playlist, tap the volume key a few times and get in the zone. There are some GitHub PRs you need to review, so you head there first. The rest of the morning goes by working on that feature for the weekly client demo tomorrow. Lunch time arrives so you head to your Yoga class. Feeling stretched and relaxed, you make yourself something to eat, grab (another) cup of coffee and get back to work. Some remote problem solving with the team and then it’s back to code. Hunger calls (where did the day go) and you know it’s time to shut the laptop. After catching up on everyones day you go pack for your trip to NodeConf the next day.
