About Fog Creek

For 17 years, Fog Creek Software has worked to be the technology company that puts people ahead of everything else. First, we created an amazing place to work and then we invented products that make work better for everyone that uses them. Now we're focused on enabling every person and every team to make thoughtful, useful software.

Fog Creek is looking for smart, organized and driven salespeople to join our sales team.

We've been in business selling B2B software for 16 years; we've never taken VC, and have been profitable since day one. We plan to double that success over the coming years with the release of new products that continue to shape the developer community. This is your opportunity to bring your creativity and initiative to a growing sales team, and build on your career at a company with the living legacy of creating products that impact how software is built.

You:

  • Are a Smart & Gets Things Done sales-minded individual

  • Have excellent written and oral communication skills and a knack for developing on-point sales messaging
  • Thrive on competition and love being the first one to spot an opportunity
  • Have an interest in technology, start ups and developer culture

We want you to know

We welcome you, as you are, to work at Fog Creek. We're removing the structural barriers and daily frustrations that too many tech companies inflict on underrepresented workers. From day one, our company has been about respecting and valuing our workers, and you’ll be supported by every level of our organization when you join our team. We support workplace diversity.

Fog Creek Software, Inc. does not discriminate in employment matters on the basis of race, color, religion, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or any other protected class. If you have a disability, we're more than happy to accommodate and make the interview process better for you.

What to expect when you apply

To apply, email us at jobs@fogcreek.com, attaching a current resume in HTML, Plain Text, or PDF format. In the body of the email describe how you fit the requirements outlined above. Our auto-response will let you know we received your application and have a few quick follow up questions that shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

FAQ

At this point, lots of tech companies have great benefits. What makes Fog Creek's benefits stand out?

For starters, we'll set you and your family up with free health care. Seriously. You won't pay a dime out of pocket—it's by far the best health plan you'll find out there. Our paid leave gives you 20 days vacation (plus additional days for when caretakers need time to care for a family member), unlimited sick days and 12 weeks fully paid parental leave. And while you're welcoming a new family member, we'll let you reimburse $500 of food costs so that you can spend less time cooking and meal planning and more time staring at your little one or trying to get 4 consecutive hours of sleep. There's more, but if you're not at least a little impressed by now, what else can we do to change your mind?


OK, ok everyone talks about flexible hours and work-life balance at their company but I'm not buying it. What does work-life balance even mean these days?

Work-life balance at Fog Creek means that you'll have time to tend to the life stuff that comes up outside your job. Dentist appointment? Sick kid? Renewing your driver's license? You won't owe Fog Creek the hours you spend taking care of your life. From the top down, we model what it looks like to enjoy your work but have a well-rounded life outside it.


What is it like to work from the New York office at Fog Creek?

Our office was carefully and thoughtfully designed to encourage both collaborative work and give you quiet space to focus. In addition to the standard height-adjustable desk and classic Aeron chair, you'll have several spaces throughout the office to work (including an outdoor terrace!). We cater a healthy lunch every day to cultivate our community by eating together, not at our desks. We'll also give you an unlimited Metrocard every month, along with any tools or equipment you need to be successful.


How is working remotely different than working at the office? I've never worked remotely before and I'm worried I might feel isolated.

Over half of Fog Creek is remote, with some teams entirely remote, so we make it a priority to operate as if the entire company is remote. We're communicating via Slack, Zoom, and Google Hangouts the majority of the day (the sheer number of bad jokes in Slack is truly astounding) and do our best to give new remote workers the tips and tools they need to feel 100% part of Fog Creek from Day 1. We'll outfit your home office with an Aeron chair, standing desk and any other equipment you need.

We also have an annual company offsite where we all get to be together in 3D with 5-star accommodations against an extraordinarily gorgeous backdrop like canyons in Colorado or a private beach in Mexico. And in case you're wondering, that's 100% covered by Fog Creek.
