Loophole Labs is an early-stage startup building open-source developer tools focused on the networking and application delivery control space.
What's the opportunity?
We have an opportunity for developers who want to help build revolutionary open-source tools from the ground up. You will be involved in the key decisions - software stack, toolset, architecture, and you will work closely with the leadership team. Our HQ location will be Toronto, but we are open to individuals working full-time but remotely within the CA/US/UK/EU time zones. Furthermore, all of your work at Loophole Labs will contribute directly to open-source projects and repositories.
Why is Loophole Labs an amazing place to work?
We're building an engineering culture with tons of autonomy, constant desire to improve, and a focus on creative problem-solving with measurable customer impact.
We have a modern tech stack designed to build software that's efficient, scalable, and maintainable. We offer competitive salaries and generous equity options, not to mention that we are a completely remote company.
We have an incredible engineering culture based on true ownership, a customer-obsessed mentality, and taking the time to get the technical details right. We're built to scale well and scale fast.
