Let's build something better


Working at Hugo

Whether you're an engineer, a designer, or an adjuster, every position at Hugo requires three things: estimating how much work a given task will take, who needs to be involved, and what it means for our members. These three things let us work flexibly because we are consistently improving our forecasting ability and staying motivated to deliver for our members. 

What does that mean for the day-to-day? It means a single team check-in at 10AM PT where you discuss your tasks for the day and any help you will need. Then, you're free to complete that task at your own pace and on your own schedule. We do a biweekly retrospective to assess team performance, and a bi-weekly cycle planner. We are meeting-phobic.

Every team seeks to get something out into the wild every day - whether it's a paper prototype or a full deployment to production.

We take your personal development seriously - the better you are, the better we can deliver for our members and community. As part of your on-boarding, we'll discuss your development goals and how we can contribute. That includes everything from blog posts to conferences and sponsored meet-ups. 

Hugo is an EEO employer that actively pursues and hires a diverse workforce, and will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records. Our salaries, perks, and benefits are all negotiable. We don’t judge people based on schools or degrees.

Our application process

Our goal is to take as little of your time as possible - and be transparent throughout.

Most engineers will be asked to complete a 1 hour HackerRank technical screening challenge. We hope you enjoy it!

After that, you’ll have an engineering call, a call with our leadership team, an in-person engineering challenge and team-meet, and a quick reference check before hiring. At each step, we try to get you our feedback within 3 days.

Need to accelerate the process? Just let us know. Get started by sending us your email below.
