Please note: At this time we are only able to accept candidates in the United States, Canada, and the UK.

At Compose, we're looking for strong writers with technical backgrounds to join our eclectic writing team. Do you find yourself writing and reading technical blogs for enjoyment? Maybe you've squashed your last 4AM bug and want to step out of the fire and share your wisdom with others? Or, perhaps you're an experienced fan of a particular database and want to share your praises (...or foreboding...) with the masses?

If you're technically inclined - programming, analytics, technical marketing - and want to stay comfortably plugged in to the software world, we would love to hear from you. At Compose, quality technical content is a major part of what we do. Our articles, how-tos, case studies and marketing materials are a crucial piece of our overall puzzle. If you'd love to spend your days growing with a fantastic, casual and close-knit team, we have an unbelievable spot for you.

Compose has grown into a vibrant work environment where folks can feel comfortable being themselves, living a balanced life. We welcome you to enjoy comfort when taking risks, collaborate with spirited peers, and to unleash your creative personality.

Technical things we hope you're good at (or can become excellent at):

  • Databases: We provide databases as a service. We'd love for you to have all sorts of experience with different types of data-storage.
  • Dev-y Things: It would be helpful if you can git, script, code things, and work with common software tools like Slack, Ghost, Google Analytics and Segment. The more technical know-how and experience, the better. Our stack is built with Ruby/Go and it would be excellent if you could contribute to that, too.
  • Tech Talk: Distill complicated technical ideas to any audience. It's a tough thing to do!

    We're excited to see what sort of character will wind up in this role... a few helpful traits include:

  • Driven: We're a self-managing organization that gives you the respect, trust and responsibility to operate with minimal oversight.
  • Compassionate: Compose is stuffed with many great hearts, minds, and spirits. We'd love for you to want to collaborate and grow with them.
  • Inventive: You'll need buckets of creativity to help you solve a wide range of (sometimes vague) conundrums.
  • Accepting: Freedom to fail! Things won't always work, but things will always iterate. This is a fun role and should feel that way.

    Think you're a match?

    Compose implements blind-hiring! Merit based, objectively graded work samples are the first step. We have worked hard to minimize our own biases as much as possible and find the best possible humans for the team. We respect a fancy education or a list of spectacular previous accomplishments, but nothing is more impressive than the right combination of ingredients - which you can objectively demonstrate.

    At any time during the process, we are available to chat (email, video, whatever you like) to ensure you are comfortable with the process and feel that you're being treated fairly and with respect.

    Good luck, and have fun!

In the present world of application development it's difficult to determine where the front-end stops and the back-end begins. While we don't feel wise enough to define where this point may be, we feel the right candidate will be adventurous enough to focus more on how to provide the strongest and cleanest user experience.

If you love making beautiful and functional things and want to have some fun, we'd love to see what you can cook up for us.

Technical things we hope you're good at (or can become excellent at):

  • Rails and JavaScript: Fluent in Rails/JavaScript. We use a lot of Go within our infrastructure, but this role doesn't require it. An idiomatic and structured approach to your work is appreciated.
  • Utility: You'll run into bugs. A handy stable of useful tools and a keen eye for broken things is essential.
  • API: A pragmatic and thorough understanding of API as a database-like source of data.
  • Testing: Able to write tests and specs for new features and offer insight to improve existing specs.
  • Databases: We provide Databases-as-a-Service; a solid fundamental understanding of good practices and various management systems would be helpful.
    Security: Awareness of security vulnerabilities and protection techniques.

    We're excited to see what sort of character will wind up in this role... a few helpful traits include:

  • Driven: We're a self-managing organization that gives you the respect, trust and responsibility to operate with minimal oversight.

Our customer base is growing quickly, and we want your combination of sharp technical and warm people skills to help our customers solve problems and get the most out of their databases at Compose. We operate a fleet of various databases, so there is something for everyone: MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, RethinkDB, and likely many more!


If you are a developer, DevOps/SRE magician, or database junkie and know how to help developers with technical questions, we want to talk to you. You will be most effective if you have an inquisitive nature, are technically-inclined and love to learn. We are not just looking to fight fires, we are looking to prevent them. We pride ourselves in providing top-notch support and guidance, so being able to communicate effectively with empathy and compassion is a must.


This is the perfect position for a motivated learner who wants to gain experience within a vibrant team focused on building an intuitive and customer-focused product. Spending time with our customers and product will let you interact with all sorts of interesting characters and will help you grow into a high-end distributed systems engineering position (we need those too, so if you start on support and do a great job, there is a huge amount of room for growth).


We're a distributed team and we work across many different time zones. If you're a night owl, an early riser, or somewhere in between, we're happy to accommodate untraditional work schedules -- our worldwide customers often need help at odd hours!


Technical bits we hope you're good at (or can become good at):

  • Databases: We provide production-grade databases to our customers. Hopefully you've navigated a few, even if it was Visual FoxPro.
  • Linux: You'll want to know vmstat from sysstat and iftop from iotop. You should be comfortable with a text editor (vi, emacs, nano, makes no difference) and be able to grep | sed | awk your way through a mess of log files.
  • A language: They're not just for humans anymore! Ruby, Go, Python, JavaScript, Haskell... chicken!? Whatever works. We interface with developers every day, and the support team itself is a team of devops, system engineer, and developers. You'll be happiest if you can poke through someone else's code, and maybe hack out a little bit of your own.
  • Communication: You should like to communicate with people. Human-focused communication of technical things - it's a delicate balance!
  • Creative Problem-Solving: You'll face a wide range of weird, wild problems.

    We're excited to see what sort of character will wind up in this role... a few helpful traits include:

  • Patient: You'll deal with many crisis-like situations. Being able to stay cool under fire is essential.
  • Driven: We're a self-managing organization that gives you the respect, trust and responsibility to operate with minimal oversight.
  • Compassionate: Compose is stuffed with many great hearts, minds, and spirits. We'd love for you to want to collaborate and grow with them.
  • Inventive: You'll need buckets of creativity to help you solve a wide range of (sometimes vague) conundrums.
  • Accepting: Freedom to fail! Things won't always work, but things will always iterate. This is a fun role and should feel that way.

Developing software appeals to those who love to solve puzzles and apply their brain power -- and also to those, in our experience, who like working from home in their pyjamas. It is often said that one of the trickiest accomplishments in the development world is imagining, building and maintaining a complex and interconnected mental model of your entire infrastructure within your working memory. If you have experience applying this mental feat within some type of Software-as-a-Service, we have a tremendous challenge for you and a terrific team willing and able to support you through it.

We need crafty engineers to help build the Compose Platform. The platform team is responsible for building and enhancing our database operations platform, which means fun systems problems — container orchestration, distributed computing, high volume data sync. If you’re interested in creating powerful data wrangling tools for thousands of developer teams worldwide, we want to talk to you. You’ll do best here if you can work without much oversight, reason about complex systems, and break big problems down into manageable pieces.

Technical things we hope you're good at (or can become excellent at):

  • Distributed Systems: Our systems have many interconnected pieces. You'll need to help make sure they all work well together.
  • Databases: We provide databases as a service. We'd love for you to have all sorts of experience with different types of data-storage.
  • Ruby: Skilled in Ruby. Our current systems are written in Ruby with heavy reliance on Ruby on Rails for presentation layers.
  • Go: We apply Go in several parts of our architecture.

    We're excited to see what sort of character will wind up in this role... a few helpful traits include:

  • Self Starter: We're a flat organization that gives you the respect and responsibility to operate with minimal supervision and management. Loose structure is not for everyone.
  • Team Oriented: When you're given freedom and space to work within, it's important that you want to collaborate with others.
  • Inventive: Sometimes you'll need to connect the dots and work off vague instructions or indicators.

We’re looking for a designer who loves creating great experiences and can help us share our excitement for the products we’re building. This isn’t a rigid position where you’re told what to crank out. At Compose you’ll have a lot of say in what you do every day and plenty of opportunities to learn new things along the way.

Our designers work on a wide variety of projects, from stunning print materials to cutting edge web applications. We’re looking for someone who can draw on a strong foundation in color theory, layout, and typography to help us tell the world what makes our tools so incredible.

As a talented designer, you

  • create impactful marketing pages.
  • craft clear, effective user interfaces.
  • design beautiful print materials.
  • understand design theory and practical tools.
  • possess strong verbal communication and reasoning skills.
  • take pride in your craft and never stop learning.
  • effectively collaborate across disciplines.
  • self-start projects and see them through to production.

    You’ll be happy here if you

  • value autonomy, yet want to work with some of the smartest people around.
  • want to have an immediate, tangible impact on the Compose brand.
  • would like to ship stuff without cutting through red tape.
  • pride yourself on making bold choices and learning from your mistakes.
  • are a lifelong learner, and want a place to hone your skills.

    Once you get here, you might

  • dream up ways to enhance our main marketing site.
  • improve how we communicate with customers on Compose Articles.
  • spearhead the design and implementation of various marketing microsites.
  • craft stunning collateral for our conference sponsorships and marketing efforts.
  • art direct spots, banners, and other illustrative works with our amazing artist, Eva.
  • work with our team to define the Compose brand through consistent, meaningful design.
