About the role

We are hiring for this role in San Francisco (this is not a remote position)

As a Founding Engineer at Ciro, you will work closely with the founders to design and build products that sales teams use every day. You will see all parts of the business, shaping Ciro’s culture from the earliest stages, and build core parts of our product and infrastructure.

You will:

  • Design, build, and own large user-facing areas of the product using modern frameworks and tooling (React, Node.js, GraphQL).
  • Work closely with the founders and early customers to set product and technical direction for the company.
  • Play a lead role in defining Ciro’s engineering culture as we grow.

Sample projects you might work on:

  • Build a personalized feed of fresh & timely news on small businesses based on 10+ different data sources.
  • Design and implement Ciro’s monetization stack from scratch.
  • Build a map-based tool for Ciro users to scout, prioritize, and reach out to the best prospects in their sales territory.

Some of the skills we’re excited about:

  • 5+ years of experience building modern web applications in world-class, high-growth technology companies.
  • Productive, resourceful, and effective at problem-solving.
  • Strong product sense.
  • Ability to balance effective execution with a high bar for engineering excellence.
  • (Preferred) Experience working with data products.

About the interview

Our goal is to make this as simple and enjoyable for you as possible, while respecting your time.

  1. Intro call: a 20-25 min chat with our CEO or CTO about the position, your background, your motivation and all the initial questions you might have.
  2. Take-home assignment: 2-hour async programming assignment, solving the typical kinds of problems we’re addressing in our real codebase.
  3. Onsite: Meet each of the founders in person - we want to get to know you and you probably want to get to know us, so we can make sure that we'll all be thrilled to work together.
  4. Offer: will be made and you'll join Ciro on our journey!

Why you should join Ciro

Sales is about building relationships 🤝 — but you wouldn’t know it from watching most sales teams today. The average sales rep spends 1-2 days per week researching and list-building instead of spending time with customers.

We’re building the most comprehensive index of small businesses in the world, combined with elegant software that gives salespeople superpowers. Our stodgy competitors (e.g., Dunn and Bradstreet) have been around for 100 years and have not innovated in decades. Modern sales teams deserve better!

Ciro is a tight-knit team of engineers, sales execs, and product managers with experience from Stanford, Google, Bain & Co, Brown, Berkeley, and BuildZoom. Our CEO and COO have both served as VPs of Sales at high-growth SaaS startups and understand our domain deeply. We are backed by some of the best investors in the world, including Y Combinator, SV Angel, CRV, and the founders of Flexport, BuildZoom, and Tegus.

If our mission speaks to you, we’d be delighted to meet you. Join us for the adventure of a lifetime 🚀
