About the role

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.

As a member of the engineering team at Factored, you will be directly impacting our platform and product. You will also work collaboratively with fellow engineers, product management, and key stakeholders. As a Senior Full Stack Engineer, you will help set the stage for future engineering team members as we expand throughout the next year.

Our team is composed of 10 folks across our US, Europe, 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.
