About Us and Why We’re Hiring

We help people use Jira efficiently by creating great apps for everyday tasks. We make tools for software and business teams that are used by over 20 000 companies worldwide. We have a few hundred thousand of active users and we grow over 100% annually. We are proud of what we accomplished so far, but we also have ambitious goals for the future.

We are looking for individuals that will help us realize those goals together. There are plenty of new features to build, and new products to develop.

    • when needed you will report bugs to Atlassian,
    • you will look for solutions on StackOverflow or Atlassian forums
  • you understand that working in a team also means communication, i.e.:
    • participating in code reviews,
    • solving problems on support,
    • making the team work better together,
    • asking for help if something isn’t going as expected
  • you have conversational English skills to
    • talk with a client on a call,
    • communicate daily with your team members in English,

How you’ll work at HeroCoders

Be a part of the solution

You’ll work closely with a product owner and the team to design and implement the features we want to build. Part of your job will be discovering what’s technically possible, figuring out what would be an ideal step-by-step implementation (we don’t do large pull requests and we use feature flags). You will also help us build monitoring tools to make sure everything works as expected, and implement analytics to know if people are actually using what we’ve built.

Live where you want

We’re a remote company since day one. We don’t have an office. Our founders are located in Poland and as long as there’s some time overlap with Central Europe you’re welcome to live anywhere.

No crazy hours

We want everyone to have a full life outside of HeroCoders. We seldom work more than 40 hours per week. There have been rare occasions where things got a little crazy, and people logged some extra hours but then they took additional time off to balance it all out. We work hard and smart, but we’re in this for the long haul; there’s no need to go crazy on the hours.


  • B2B net salary between 5000 – 7500 USD per month (or converted to PLN),
  • 3 weeks paid leave,
  • one-week-long hackathon event each quarter,
  • drive your self-development – we offer you an opportunity to grow professionally in areas of your choosing, for example:
    • you can become a database guru and optimize our production,
    • if DevOps is something you like you can manage our datadog,
    • or maybe you want to learn more about product development and help us manage our backlog,
    • you’ll have the freedom to chose your path
  • we’re a small company and you will participate in business decisions,
  • work on products loved by real people
