Who we are looking for

This instance only allows senior toot engineers. If you have at least 10+ years of mastodon experience please apply here (https://banana.dog). We are looking for rockstar ninja rocket scientists and we offer unlimited PTO as well as a fully stocked snack bar (with soylent). We are a lean, agile, remote friendly mastodon startup that pays in the bottom 25% for senior tooters. All new members get equity via an innovative ICO call BananaCoin.

The interview process

To join we have a take home exam that involves you writing several hundred toots that we can use to screen you. We will then throw these away during your interview so that we can do a technical screening where we use a whiteboard to evaluate your ability to re-toot memes and shitpost in front of a panel. This panel will be composed of senior tooters who are all 30 year old cis white males (coincidence).

Here are the reasons you may want to join

We are an agile tooting startup (a tootup). That means for every senior tooter we have a designer, a UX person, a product manager, project manager and scrum master. We meet for 15min every day and plan twice a week in a 3 hour meeting but it’s cool because you get lunch and have to attend. Our tooters love it, I would know if they didn’t since we all have standing desks in an open office layouts d can hear everything!


Herein lie the rules for banana dog. These are taken / adapted from the something awful forum rules. If you have questions toot them at me @debugninja@banana.dog or alternatively reach out via email blog (at) debug.ninja Make sure you are familiar with the rules below. Memorize them. Read them daily if you have to. They are guidelines you must follow in order to keep your account privileges. If you break a rule, you will likely be censored / punished. Punishment can be a temporary or permanent loss of privileges.

Worthless Posts:

Please do not post crap asking us to vote for you on some website, give you referrals for free iPods / flatscreens / spare tires, or any other semi-spam things.

Leet Haxoring:

Don't fuck with this instance or any of its users. If you post a malicious link (any URL with spyware or code designed to annoy people) you will be banned. Do not make plans to annoy / destroy other users / instances.

Stay On Target:

Try to use the appropriate hash tag for your posts. This helps people find your post and makes the instance more user friendly.
Also, Mastodon supports content warnings so please consider using them. Examples may include posting spoilers for a brand new movie, discussing something gross or maybe just containing a political rant.

The moderators are here to keep the instance safe, sane, and secure. If they ask you to do something, please do it. Please do not harass or intentionally annoy the mods. If you do not like the mods or the moderation, feel free to contact me @debugninja@banana.dog.

Harass and Sass:

If somebody is harassing you report it to a mod or the admin. Please do not post others' personal information (phone number, addresses, emails, etc.). Try to stay out of other peoples' personal lives on the public timeline as well. Keep in mind there's a good distinction between the Internet and real life.

Account Ability:

You are solely responsible for the content posted from your account. Please secure it accordingly.

Crazy Catchall:

Please do not try to cleverly circumvent some rule listed here. These rules are general guidelines and are very flexible.

I Hate Speech:

Offensive terms such as "faggot" or "nigger" may or may not be bannable based on context of the toot. This rule is completely, 100% subjective and is based on the mod reading the post at the time. Use at your own peril.
