Are you a super talented software architect who is getting tired of working on the same boring stuff all the time? Maybe you’ve spent a bunch of time keeping up on the latest tech but don’t see many opportunities to use it in your day job? Perhaps you’re looking for the opportunity to play a key role in shaping the direction and culture of an exciting new startup, working alongside other talented and driven individuals such as yourself?

If any of that sounds familiar and you’re ready to finally do something about it, read on…

Who are we?

We are Prismatic, a well-capitalized startup in Sioux Falls, SD founded by three individuals with a proven track record of building and scaling exceptional software companies. Our mission is to build an embedded iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service) that changes the way software vendors provide integrations to their customers. We believe there is a massive untapped potential in providing software integrations to end users, and that many otherwise useful integrations either never get built or never get completely finished because building software integrations is quite difficult and expensive, for a multitude of reasons. Prismatic aims to solve this.

Our team has deep experience in this area, having previously spent fifteen years together building a software company and scaling it into an industry disruptor and a national leader, which involved selling, building, implementing, and supporting hundreds of unique software integrations. We believe we are well positioned to make a serious dent in the iPaaS market, which is a market that by all estimates is poised for a high degree of growth over the next several years as the proliferation of software continues.

We’re looking for experienced, talented individuals to join us as early members of our engineering team and help build and shape the first version of our platform.
