    Contract Positions

    At PromptWorks we occasionally engage contractors when clients have needs that extend beyond our core areas of expertise, require more capacity that we have on staff, or require working arrangements that are a poor fit for our core team.

    About PromptWorks

    Proud of our process

    We take a lot of pride and care in how we employ Agile and XP practices. For example, our culture of pair programming starts all the way from how our projects get allocated, how our employee reviews are done, to how our office is laid out.

    Clients' best interests

    We specialize in open-source, dynamic languages like Ruby, Python, and JavaScript, but we equally embrace and regularly work with languages like React, React Native, Clojure, Elixir, Go & Swift when they are the right fit for the project. In other instances, we advise our clients to use off-the-shelf software instead of building something custom with us. We do this because we want our clients to succeed with or without our help.

    Constantly learning

    We allow our employees to spend part of their time sharpening their skills and walking further towards their professional aspirations. That culture of learning is embedded in everything we do ranging from our office space to our meeting formats to our employee expectations.

    For example, we host 'Talk Tuesday,' where our employees give an informational talk at lunch every Tuesday. Topics range from new development tools to cinematography in old movies. On other days, you might hear us hosting design critiques, Game Lunch Wednesdays, Third Beer Thirty where we hack past our own tests, and so on.

    Growth opportunities

    We help each other grow professionally and empower others to take ownership of projects beyond our normal job scope. We balance that with having clear roles and hierarchy where necessary. For many, PromptWorks becomes a CTO school or a launching pad into management.

    Journey to a diverse, inclusive company

    We are building a culture where people of different backgrounds and skillsets can belong and thrive. We are at the beginning of a long journey to make our company a diverse and inclusive workplace. This shift is directly improving the quality of our work. We invite you to come as you are; bring your talents and eagerness to learn.


    We train apprentices to foster interest in coding for young grads, women, or people of color. They 'pair' with one of our engineers for 3-5 months to learn coding, collaboration, and process skills necessary to be successful in the industry. This apprenticeship is paid and provides the chance to become a full time PromptWorks engineer.

    Convening our community

    We want to build a thriving and connected tech sector. Almost every week we help organize, host, or speak at a local tech meetup groups. It helps us learn from others and vice versa.
