About the role

About Acho

Hi there 👋, glad that you found us! I hope that this page explains what we do pretty well. Feel free to add a question in the form below if there’s anything unclear.

Acho is building a Collaborative GUI for data engineering tasks. From building a data connector and pipeline to supporting an application, we make Acho accessible to all team members regardless of their roles and technical background.

Our mission is simple and ambitious: build a database everyone can and should use. Today, hundreds of business teams use Acho to transform their business processes and unlock more value from their data than ever before.

Team Acho is engineering-focused and collaborative. Recently closed a Seed Round by Y Combinator, VCs, and legendary angel investors, we are setting off to solve some of the most complex problems in the data space today.

  • Provide day-to-day, organizational-wide visibility into ongoing performance dashboards and metrics

What does the interview process look like?

A: After reviewing your resume, we’ll reach out for an intro call. We may follow by scheduling a technical interview. Then, we’d give you a small project if the tech round went well. Then, after assessing the project, we’d be ready and make an offer.

Can I work remotely?

A: Yes. We support a hybrid of remote and on-site work environments.

What’s it like working for a startup?

A: Being a small, agile team is the best way to grow fast personally and collectively. We tend to debunk some of the stereotypes about working at a startup. We rarely work overtime. Our processes are pretty straightforward and structured. Our goal is super defined. Our financial risk is a lot lower than many established businesses as we have zero debt, fewer commitments/overheads, and grow each month.

What can I expect in terms of compensation?

A: We aim to compensate competitively. Additionally, we ensure a “happy rate” and boost in pay for every milestone we achieve together.

What’s unique about this role?

A: The sales leader on our team helps us “engineer” growth. It takes a lot of trials and errors to know what works and what does not. But, in many aspects, the sales leader role at Acho makes important, strategic decisions.

What’s unique about team Acho?

We’re a group of builders who aren’t afraid of the toughest challenges. As we understand it, the world is a big puzzle with many problems to solve. The bigger our goal is, the more and more complex the issues become. So we’d always want to be the team that solves the most complex problems.
