ZenHub Careers

To build amazing software, be where the software lives.

ZenHub is the leading team collaboration and project management suite built into GitHub and GitHub Enterprise.

Our customers are smart cookies: some of the best teams at companies like Imgur, NASA, Microsoft, Docker, and Zenefits use ZenHub to stay in the zone. That’s why we recruit the best and foster an environment that enables our team. At ZenHub, every team member is charged with getting to know customers deeply, learning how to solve their toughest problems, and turning them into evangelists. We’re looking for team members that are technical enough to get their hands dirty, and product-focused enough to help translate customer requests into product features.

Staying together
Once a week we sit down to eat together. The team lunch is one of our many traditions that help us to tighten the bonds between Axioms that work on unrelated projects.


We’ll start by reviewing your resume, cover letter, and relevant social media links. We’re curious about you, so be sure to include information that showcases your skills and interests, such as your LinkedIn or GitHub profile, portfolio, or website.


Chat with us

We’ll email you to schedule a meeting. Tell us what you’re passionate about, your accomplishments, and the kind of challenges you’re looking for. If there's a fit, you'll be scheduled for a chat with a hiring manager. We want to know the depth of your knowledge as it relates to the role.


Show us what you got

We may ask to see samples of your work. Depending on the position you’re applying for, these can be writing, code, or design samples. There might also be a take home assignment to help us understand if we’re a match.


Meet the team

Collaboration, feedback, and discussion are key to all positions at Axiom Zen. As such, we may invite you for an elbow-to-elbow session with other team members to see if we all work well together. After interviewing with a few Axioms (and likely our founder as well), we’ll review everyone’s feedback before requesting references. Depending on the role, we may invite you for multiple interviews to make sure we’re a fit.


References and offer

We want to hear from people who’ve worked with you. Ideally, that feedback comes from previous supervisors or managers. Once we’re confident we have a fit, we’ll send out an official job offer!

Building agile teams who thrive in a distributed hierarchy is complicated alchemy. We pride ourselves on finding perfect fits, so our collaborative hiring process can take 4-6 weeks. Be sure to let us know of any deadlines, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
