Austin Software

Austin Software isn’t a software factory. In fact, we’re the anti-factory.

  • We’re happy to fire bad clients
  • No fixed priced contracts
  • We don’t survive project to project
  • We don’t log hours
  • Work directly with teams in the US

Software factories have reverse incentives and developers suffer the consequences — work extra for less. We work in a better way. Our business model is aligned with you; As you get paid more, we get paid more.

We’re Partners, Not A Factory

We work only as core members of engineering teams in the US and you get more growth opportunities. Our teammates:

  • Lead teams at US partners
  • Apply for management with partners
  • Help pitch investors with partners
  • Lead at Austin Software itself

But You’re Also A Member Of Austin Software

You’re a great developer but it doesn’t work out with a partner? Not a problem. You remain an Austin Software employee and you’ll join a new partner you like.
