Working at Citrusbyte

I’m incredibly excited to be working at Citrusbyte. I’m not sure how much I can say about how they work, but I know I can say this: They do their best to work according to the video and blog posts on this “How Github Works” page.

I remember reading those posts about how “work” works at Github — how they don’t measure by hours worked, and they optimize for programmer happiness. And I remember thinking that I wouldn’t get that good a working environment anywhere I worked.

I was wrong. Citrusbyte isn’t perfect (they have to have some compromises to fit how their clients work) but in general, they fit that Github model pretty closely.

I’m feeling incredibly excited and lucky to be there.

    Indeed, but we are working more and more to not compromise. Optimizing for programmer happiness is actually a great way to get a good product and run your business – so making compromises here is going to have an adverse affect on your business.

    Recently I wrote this for customers who try and doom their engineering teams by not doing this:
