About the role

Join us as a founding engineer and build the future of auditing. Our ideal hire has more ambition than they’re able to realize at their current company. They want to start their own company and are looking for the best way to prepare. They enjoy working directly with customers, shaping engineering culture, and making an impact with the code they write every day.

Responsibilities and Duties

  • Develop and own the front-end of Agentive.
  • Spend an hour each week (on average) with customers to see the impact of your work and learn how we can improve their lives.
  • Influence our product strategy, design, and experience with your customer learnings and expertise.
  • Contribute to Agentive’s engineering culture now and as we grow.

Qualifications and Skills

  • Expertise in our tech stack (React, Next.js, and TypeScript).
  • Have previous startup experience, or worked in an environment that prioritizes a bias for action.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to start your own startup are a plus.
  • Understanding of modern AI and ML technologies.
  • Experience building financial products is a plus but not required.

Life at Agentive

  • We’re based in Palo Alto, CA but are a remote-first company that enables you to do your best work from anywhere.
  • We love our customers and prioritize them in all that we do.
  • We celebrate our shipping code and customer feedback because we know it’s our competitive advantage.
  • Our bonus and pay structure is tied to your impact on company performance.
  • You will be an owner of Agentive equity and share in our success. We offer regular equity refreshers.

Agentive is committed to fostering and empowering an inclusive community within our organization. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Agentive encourages everyone to apply for our available positions, even if they don't necessarily check every box on the job description.

About the interview

We like to keep interview loops short, and deliver a decision as fast as possible. Here are the steps:

  1. Overview Call with co-founder (30 minutes)
  2. Pair Programming (45 minutes)
  3. System Design Interview (45 minutes)
  4. Product Sense Take Home Case Study (1 hour)
  5. Leadership and Drive Interview (1 hour with both co-founders)

For the product sense case study we'll present you with realistic scenarios you'll face as a founding engineer at Agentive and give you time to reflect on how you would advise we proceed in these scenarios. We'll discuss them together in the leadership and drive interview. No need to submit written answers beforehand.

Decision: we'll get back to you within a week of the final interview.

About Agentive

Agentive is building the simplest auditing experience for public accounting firms. We leverage the latest advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning models to automate the work auditors don't enjoy, and they're hungry for these improvements.

You'll work directly with our founders who have engineering, product, and audit experience at Google, Meta, Ernst & Young, and C3 AI.

We're backed by Y Combinator, Foundation Capital, Dell Technologies Capital, Liquid 2 Ventures, Ritual Capital, UpHonest Capital, and other fantastic investors from the public accounting profession.
