Position Descriptions

  • Industry Sales Representative - Are you selling for a manufacturing company today? A distributor? Seeking sales professionals with real industry experience for financially rewarding opportunity. Help us demo and explain the benefits of the ERP software to manufacturers and distributors that need our solutions. If you have worked with any ERP before, that's a value-added bonus for this position.
  • Software Engineers – People with a strong software engineering background in large, complex applications continue to fuel our charge into the future of ERP. We have Desktop and Web front-ends to a common database, so be prepared to work in C++, JavaScript, and whatever else may come your way. We’ll put your SQL expertise to the test.. More details on xTuple Senior Software Engineer positions.
  • IT and Web Engineer - Motivated self-starter to manage key internal IT functions inside xTuple, a growing open source software company. Requires strong knowledge of Linux/UNIX, networks, phone systems, and security, as well as genuine enthusiasm for technology and learning new things. Able to analyze benefits of outside versus inside solutions (e.g. Gmail/calendar vs. internal tools), and work well in a fast-paced, often hectic, team environment. Desktop support is key aspect of day-to-day. While not a Webmaster position, knowledge of Web technologies (particularly Drupal and PHP) as well as database knowledge, particularly PostgreSQL, are strong pluses. Company culture is heavy on geekery, including company outings to superhero movies and a year-round Star Trek Christmas tree. Team xTuple aggressively invests in its people, supporting a work hard, play hard environment.
  • Product Managers – Results-oriented evangelists to serve as the “CEO” of their product, driving the execution of product strategy and the vision of the company. More details on xTuple Product Manager positions.
  • Quality Assurance Engineer – Programmers with a passion for quality to help us expand the scope of our software testing processes. If you've worked in Agile environments, have experience with automated testing, and are familiar with behavior-driven development, then we want to talk to you! Our customers value our QA process.
  • Drupal Developers and Webmasters – Our xTupleCommerce Web Portal product and our own websites are built with the Drupal CMS, and we're continuing to develop rich interactions between Drupal and the xTuple ERP backend. If that sounds like fun to you, a) we're sorry, and b) let us hear from you! More details on Drupal Web Manager – xTuple Web Developer-Designer.
  • PostgreSQL Experts – We love the world's most advanced open source database, and if you do too, we'd like to hear from you. Every single one of our customers runs at least one PostgreSQL database, and we're dramatically expanding our cloud offerings as well. Looking for both developers and database administrators (DBA).
  • ERP Professionals – Ever developed or deployed other ERP or accounting software products? The ERP Graveyard is filling up with these old products, but the skills you've developed over the past 20+ years implementing them are more relevant than ever! APICS certification (CPIM) is a strong plus, as is ability to travel. Certified Public Accountants (CPA) welcome. Got another three-letter acronym (TLA) we should know about? Contact us now.
  • Telemarketing and Telesales Professionals – Enjoy a challenge? How about explaining ERP over the telephone? Just kidding ... (sort of). There are millions of smaller companies in manufacturing and distribution, many of whom have very little in the way of technology infrastructure. A core part of xTuple's mission is to share the benefits of enterprise-class software available and make it affordable for the companies who really need it.
