Work at Shorebird

Shorebird is not hiring at this time. However, we will likely be hiring again later in 2023. The easiest way to engage with what we’re doing is to join our Discord and chat with us there.

About Shorebird

The problem: Today, businesses write the same app at least twice at 2x the necessary costs, with redundant code-bases, teams, bug lists. Flutter has proven that high-quality multi-platform is possible. However, adopting Flutter can be challenging since the default offerings from Google are sometimes an ill fit or incomplete for non-Google teams. Shorebird is filling in the gaps business need to be successful with Flutter development, starting with code push.

We’re here to save developers and business time and money, help them provide their customers with better experiences, and hopefully make the world a better place.

The primary unlock we made in building Flutter was bringing circa 2014 web tech to mobile (reactive programming, hot reload, etc). Shorebird is repeating this by bringing 2023 web tech to mobile (blurring client/server, always up-to-date deploys, etc).

We’re a default-public organization, we operate on a public discord, our source and planning are public. We’re an all remote, distributed team.

More information about the company we’re trying to build can be found in our public handbook


We’re globally all-remote. Team members so far are located in the US (GMT-8, GMT-7 and GMT-6 so far). So far our communication has been semi-synchronous with spontaneous video calls most days. Locations in GMT-14 to GMT+0 seem ideal.

Interview Process

No, we don’t ask you to do coding exercises. We’re interested most in your past projects/accomplishments (do you ship stuff?), your desire to work at a startup and on this mission in particular, and your ability to communicate clearly. We’ll have a few conversations, possibly do a small project together and check references. If it’s a mutual fit, we’ll make you an offer.
