About HostiFi

We’re a cloud managed hosting provider specifically for Ubiquiti software. We are currently managing over 600 UniFi and UNMS Linux application servers. HostiFi was launched as a side project by Reilly Chase in May 2018, and he left his job as a Security Analyst to work full-time on it in January 2019.

In April, HostiFi raised a seed round from Earnest Capital. We hired our first employee, Safwan Shaikh, in September 2019 as a Technical Support Engineer. Reilly has been posting monthly updates, and blogs about building the business at https://rchase.com.

We are looking for a Laravel developer to work directly with Reilly on finishing the new HostiFi website that he is writing using Laravel Forge, Spark, and Horizon. This person will hopefully go on to help us build a small development team to launch additional features and SaaS products for our customers in the future.
