Hi! I'm a cofounder of Rendered Text, a software company. We’re making Semaphore, a code delivery platform.
Ten years ago, the "state of the art" in automating software testing meant you had to spend days setting up Jenkins on a snowflake server and own it for life. That was a big distraction from building products.
We built Semaphore so that every developer can set up a fast continuous integration process in a few minutes and not worry about how it works. (Originally, we only planned to support Ruby on Rails, but things escalated.)
Today, Semaphore serves tens of thousands of developers in delivering amazing apps for the web and mobile devices. And we're proud to do so as a 100% independent and sustainable company.
If you'd like to work with us, visit the Semaphore Careers page for details on our culture and openings. We're a remote and international team of friendly people who love what they do.
