About Tanooki Labs

Tanooki Labs is a product and development shop based in New York City. We love the internet. ♥ Like, more than normal people.

We’re passionate about making great products. We work with people to bring their ideas from their brains to the whiteboard, and then from wireframes to the web. We’ve honed our process and know how to work fast and efficiently. We’re allergic to re-inventing the wheel, and whenever possible we will find the right pieces to plug together to make your project a reality without milking you for work you don’t need.

We also know it’s not all about code. We know what it takes to build an early following, get traction, and how to build projects that scale quickly when needed. We also know how to communicate, and can work with you to create site copy, landing pages, marketing strategies, and homepage videos.

The Position

This is not your average company job posting.

We are Tanooki Labs, a product and development studio based in the United States that works with entrepreneurs on early stage products.

We provide product-minded developers with fun projects to work on, as well as the flexibility and freedom to continue working on their own goals (be it recording an album, crafting your next app, or raising the newest member of your family).

We choose our clients and projects carefully, and every product we build requires us to tackle new and exciting challenges. We also reject the idea that software development has to feel like a grind. We work 35 hours per week, support flexible schedules, are family friendly, and work with both local and remote developers.


We are looking for pragmatic developers who build with:

  • empathy for users,
  • a deep understanding of the software we build and our clients' businesses,
  • an eye toward writing well architected code.

You should have:

  • a strong background in Ruby on Rails
  • experience working in Javascript, especially React
  • experience developing applications from the ground up
  • experience with behavior-driven development and unit testing
  • a product-minded focus when creating applications
  • good communication skills in English and a location in North America

Our Hiring Process

We respect your time, so here’s what you can expect from the interview process:

  1. 15-minute introductory conversation with a Tanooki Labs co-founder.
  2. we pay you $250 for a 4 - 5 hour sample coding project.
  3. 1 hour walk through of your code with a Tanooki lead developer.
  4. you get an offer!


  • Flexible working hours - We accommodate all kinds of lifestyles and life stages. Come work on your terms.
  • Paid parental leave - 16 weeks of paid family leave for all parents to support you and your family.
  • Healthcare benefits - Medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees.
  • Retirement benefits - 401(k) to help you invest in your future.
