Working with us

We are a small, distributed team of experienced designers and engineers. We work US hours and collaborate via Slack and Github. Most of our software is developed in the open as public repositories under an MIT license (except our Rails API).

Ello is built with modern technology, React, Redux, Kotlin, and Swift on the front ends, Ruby, Elixir and Go on the back end. We deploy frequently (except not on Fridays) to Heroku and AWS.

Our routine consists of:

  • Daily “standup” slack messages following standard scrum
  • Daily “watercooler” calls where we just chat about casual topics
  • Weekly planning meetings
  • Bi-weekly retrospectives
  • Weekly cross department standups

Planning is collaborative - some of our most successful features and initiatives have been proposed by the dev team.
