We have the opportunity to be in a team environment where people with different experiences, points of view, values, and backgrounds share their diverse world views. This is especially important because we have a remote team. We encourage everyone to have an open mind, that’s what makes a good company even greater.
Our dedication to Continuous Improvement is rooted in everything we do. We’re constantly striving to create a better product, a better user experience, and become a better company. We use our strengths to our advantage and persistently find ways to overcome and improve our weaknesses.
Respect comes first and foremost. We’re always ready to listen and appreciate the thoughts, opinions, education, and expertise of our teammates and users. Freely expressing our opinions to one another is how we understand and grow.
We approach each day with a positive and winning mindset, it’s what pushes us to achieve our goals as a team and as a company. We believe in creating a fun work environment, where work feels like play and achievements can be celebrated.
Being a part of Codeship means having a strong moral compass, being a team player, and focusing on company and customer success rather than personal goals. Integrity is a crucial aspect for building strong character.

Codeship started in 2010 as "Railsonfire" by founders Moritz Plassnig, Manuel Weiss, and Florian Motlik out of the frustration that JenkinsCI was very cumbersome to maintain. Their vision for Railsonfire was to build for the builders by providing a Continuous Integration platform for Rails developers; hosting their code on GitHub and deploying to Heroku. After some positive feedback and initial traction, our co-founders went to Berlin to get more feedback from larger tech companies. They got their first customer in 2012 and were approached shortly after by TechStars Boston. RailsOnFire expanded to more technologies, the company moved to Boston, rebranded to “Codeship”, and the rest was history.
