At Shapers & Builders, we list jobs from companies who use Shape Up.

Shape Up is how Basecamp does product development. Some teams use it as a sane, complete process alternative to endless sprints. Others use it as a toolbox from which they pick and choose techniques and apply them to their own process.

With Shape Up, teams get to make meaningful progress cycle after cycle. Shape Up is about creating time to think strategically and giving well-bounded projects to integrated development teams.
