Come Build The Future With Us

At Troops, we fundamentally believe that the future of “getting things done” is going to look less like static fields and forms and more like a conversation with a human being. If Tesla can build self driving cars, we can certainly build software to make millions of people more productive at work!

We work out of a sweet loft on the top floor of a building overlooking Union Square. We believe an amazing environment with positive people working together is the recipe to success. We also value work / life balance and think talented people should be compensated accordingly.
