Role: Back End Engineer

Location: Brooklyn, NY and/or Remote

About Factored Quality:

At Factored, we're building one of the last missing pieces of modern commerce infrastructure: a platform for consumer brands to manage their quality control inspections.

Factored was started by a team of software engineers, data scientists, and supply chain managers - all focused on one goal: enable entrepreneurs to bring their products to market faster, simpler, and cheaper. We worry about managing brands’ quality control so they don't have to. We aim to redefine how quality control is managed, and need strong engineers to make it happen.

We're looking for a mid-level engineer with a strong interest in building products that re-shape how global supply chains work. You'll work alongside interdisciplinary teams of software engineers and quality control experts to create experiences our clients want to tell their friends about. We're looking for people who are passionate about creating the future of commerce enablement and building the tools needed to help people quit their day jobs to start new e-commerce businesses.

Our team is composed of 10 folks across our US and Hong Kong offices. We've raised more than $5 Million to date from an incredible team of investors and operators like Amity Ventures, Dynamo Ventures, and Y-Combinator.

  • Great communication and leadership skills - we deeply value transparency and accountability which is dictated through how we communicate
  • An eye for perfection: we want to be proud of everything we ship and are building the next generation of enterprise tools

Working Hours:
