Why work for Chillisoft?

Written by: Davyd McColl

“Why Chillisoft?

It really comes down to culture. Ours is colorful, complex and strong!
Let me start with why not Chillisoft: this is not the place for you if you:

  • consider yourself a rockstar who doesn’t need a team
  • are looking for a brogrammer (or any other) monoculture
  • code solely for the money
  • want to work in isolation, periodically emitting results
  • think you know enough
  • are a delicate flower incapable of defending your viewpoints
  • are too rigid to redefine your world views
  • are unable to stand back and laugh at yourself


The culture at Chillisoft is simply too strong, too awesome to accommodate you. You will be churned out, the rough stone
which refused to reshape in the waters around you. The stream, having discarded you at the bank, will continue to flow
without you, unperturbed at your passing.

If, however, you’re the kind of person who:

  • seeks intrinsic value in the work that you do
  • thrives on challenge
  • lives to learn
  • actively seeks ways to improve yourself
  • is never afraid to re-evaluate your well-established tenets
  • can learn from and teach anyone something
  • embraces people who are very different from you
  • wants to work with people who become family


then Chillisoft is the place you want to be. You will be hard-pressed to find a place with a culture so focused around personal development, where you have the freedom to object to a timeline in the name of quality of craft, where it’s more about doing it right than doing it fast. I’ve stayed at Chillisoft at least twice as long as at any other employer – and, despite regular good offers elsewhere (and overseas), I have no plans to leave; so you can take that for what it’s worth.”
