About Caesar Creek Software

Forget everything you thought you knew about software development companies. Caesar Creek Software is different. It starts with our basic philosophy: happy employees are the key to a company’s long term success. As an engineer who has worked at some of the biggest companies in the industry, our founder knows what it’s like to be a cog in the machine, so at Caesar Creek Software each employee is treated like family. We have the stability of a large company, without the inefficiency and bureaucracy. Our salaries are highly competitive, not just in our region, but nationwide. Our benefits package is stellar and unheard of in our region.

Nearly all employees have a private office, ergonomic chair, and state-of-the-art computer equipment. Each employee is provided a company credit card for travel and the purchase of discretionary items. Not surprisingly, we work a 40-hour week, and in the rare instances where overtime is required, it is compensated. We transitioned to 100% employee ownership in 2019 through the establishment of an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP). With the ESOP, all employees share in the fruits of their labor. Since we don’t have outside investors, all decisions are made based on what’s best for the company’s long-term future and its employees. And did we mention that we do some of the coolest work on the planet?

Sound like your kind of place? See if we are hiring. If not, check back frequently. Join our team – you’ll be glad you did!

Our Namesake
