Sometimes I feel a bit like I spend my days at Hogwarts. There’s magic happening all over the place, the occasional dragon, and never a dull moment. This has been extra true lately, and as a result, our very own Minister of Magic has declared it is time once again to open applications to Hogwarts! In this case we’re presuming you’ve had a turn under the Sorting Hat, and we’re looking for those who have been sorted into the following Houses:

  • Customer Support
  • Android Developer
  • Windows Developer

As you may have noticed, the iOS version of 1Password got a significant update late last year, and the new Mac version had a dramatic unveiling a couple of weeks ago. For those playing along at home, you’ll recall we have two more versions, and it’s those two we are aiming to transfigure into sleek modern versions. Doing this means we need your help!

And by “you” I mean “a person who is all-around awesome and familiar with 1Password and has excellent communication skills”. We are accepting applications from wherever you are. Yes really! Most of our team works remotely, which is no problem. Our owls can always find you.

You may find it hard to believe, but there’s more awesome involved than just being accepted at Hogwarts. On top of MAGIC, you can also look forward to:

  • An encouraging and cooperative virtual office
  • A healthy pay scale (no house-elf style treatment here!)
  • A flexible schedule
  • Casual Friday…every day! In fact, even more casual, if that’s your thing.
  • Other neato spells and charms that make working for AgileBits loads cooler than whatever you’re doing now.

As for what we ask in return, it’s pretty straightforward:

  • Great work ethic
  • Cool head in a hectic environment
  • Strong communication skills
  • High rum tolerance (ok I’m kidding. It doesn’t have to be rum)
  • Passion for driving 1Password forward to make it the Best App Ever
  • Support members need to be able to help with about 65 email replies a day, ensuring customers get the help they need. No worries though, our Spell books are available for study!

Does this sound like you? If so, please email us with your preferred job in the subject line (Support, Windows Developer, Android Developer). In the email itself, tell us who you would most like to sit next to during breakfast in the Great Hall, and your current favorite app (besides 1Password) on your platform of choice. Also include the answer to this question: What is the motto of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?
