About the role

Dendron is an open source note-taking tool built inside the IDE that gives developers the ability to work with and organize information as they do code. Notes are plaintext markdown and can be compiled to static page which can then be deployed and shared anywhere.

We're looking for engineers that can help us build out our feature set inside the IDE, on the browser, and in our up and coming cloud offering. Help us translate programming concepts like refactoring and debugging into the realm of knowledge management.

What you'll do

  • Develop a deep understanding of our current architecture and adopt modern development best practices and tools
  • Take full ownership of features and services across the IDE, browser and backend services
  • Design and architect new systems that are performant, scalable and delight users
  • Participate and set the norms in a remote first, open source, docs first culture

Who you are

  • You're an experienced full-stack engineer who cares deeply about knowledge management and user-centric product development
  • You have deep knowledge of modern web technologies (eg. React, Next.js)

  • You want to work in a fast paced product-driven environment
