Why join the clan?
We are a small, fast paced startup, and have every intention of remaining that way through our growth.
We're a profitable, and fully bootstrapped which means no answering to anyone besides ourselves. We can offer you a decent chunk of equity, a good salary and one of the best work environments in the country.
SnapBill is written in PHP and also includes backend scripts written in Python. We use git for source control, and the awesome github.com for code reviews. We run a completely automated Jenkins continuous deployment system, and automatically test any changes with phpUnit unit tests and Selenium controlled automated website browsers.
On the backend side our system is deployed on top of Amazon EC2. Our main database runs on a sharded MySQL setup, which is accessed by multiple web servers running Nginx behind a load balancer. We also use Redis for key-value store (as well as a couple more complicated uses), and run a backend worker queue system based on Beanstalkd.
You can read a little about our unique browseable api or our template language on our developer site - http://developers.snapbill.com (which unfortunately we have not had a chance to update recently.)
We're growing faster than we could have possibly imagined. Our clients include insurance companies billing hundreds of thousands of clients and we're just trying to keep up. We have a lot of scaling work to do, there is a serious focus on security (we store banking details) and running massive system with a large codebase. We also have huge plans for many more advanced features that we want to make it into the system.
