We're building capabilities to ensure America wins the next war. Join us.
We're looking for team members who are the best at what they do—and want to make a difference.
A Culture of Engineering and Results
Freedom and Responsibility
As a group of principal engineers, we have a deep commitment to independent decision-making by our team members. The best people know what needs to be done to accomplish the mission, and we let them do it.
Openness and Transparency
We want our employees to be invested in the success of the company. Our team trusts one another—we don't play politics, we don't have cliques, and we don't have secrets (unless they're actually classified).
Solutions over Policy
We do not create policy to work around problems; We eliminate problems so that the team can succeed.
Hyper-Focus on Our Customers
Without our customers, there's no reason for us to be here. Whether we are helping a business transform their software engineering or making tools for America's service men and women, our customers shape everything we do.
WHERE WE COME FROM
We've launched products and led transformations at the following organizations.
Amazon
Netflix
Microsoft
United States Digital Service
Time Inc
Defense Digital Service
If you're ready to take the next step in your career, apply today.
America's war fighters have one of the most difficult, stressful, and important jobs in the world.

We're here to make sure they have the very best tools for job.

Working at F9
Generous Compensation
We came for the mission, but we know the market value of the best people. We offer generous compensation packages in-line with industry.
DIY Benefits
We give our employees a generous allowance to use on a healthcare plan of their choice from several flexible tiers and formats. If you don't spend it all, you keep the difference.
Gear for Professionals
We understand that having the right gear makes your life better, and your work better. Premium noise-cancelling headphones, a top-of-the-line computer of your choice, and a mechanical keyboard are all standard issue. Something else? No problem. We trust our employees to know what tools they need to be at the top of their game.
Ownership & Freedom
F9 hires experts in their field and trusts them to make the most of their time. You will own every aspect of your work, because we trust you to be awesome.
Unlimited PTO
As a group of senior and principal engineers, most of us have families and—quite frankly—amazing lives outside of work. Get things done, but take as much time as you need, when you need it.
Proper Playtime
Whether it's snowmobiling in the mountains or dining at some of the best restaurants in the world, our team outings are not standard corporate events. You will never be forced to participate in mediocre mandatory fun.
