About the role

Fieldguide is tackling complex security and compliance data problems. We ingest and break down large data sets, power and automate the validation and verification of data, and help organizations across all industries with various financial, regulatory, security, and environmental standards. More about what we do can be found here.

A year after launch, we've brought on some of the largest audit and security service providers as customers and raised a Series A to fuel our growth. We're backed by top investors and angels including 8VC, Y Combinator, Floodgate, DNX Ventures, Global Founders Capital, AICPA/, Eric Ries, Justin Kan, and more.

We're looking for senior or above level engineers to join us.

You'll also play a key role in shaping our engineering processes and culture.

This is an opportunity to join as an early engineer at a company with product-market fit that still has huge amounts of room to grow. We’re competing with legacy accounting and audit products that are 20+ years old and have negative NPS, yet do billions in sales and have seen little competition in a decade.

  • Play a leadership role on the end-to-end development of features, specifically in regards to making architectural decisions and trading off different approaches

  • Bring a mindset of continuous improvement to your work. You’ll be responsible for making our technology and processes better over time.

  • Understand how to optimize for iteration speed while maintaining a high quality bar and technical rigor

You’ll need to have experience with several the following

  • Modern web tech stacks consisting of several of the following: TypeScript, React, GraphQL, NodeJS, Hasura, Redis, Postgres, and AWS

  • Architecting systems and data pipelines that can handle the ingestion, digitalization, storage, and retrieval of document-heavy data sets, including document processing, search, and classification (ML experience is a plus)

  • Test and automation tools like Jest and Cypress

  • DevOps and continuous integration/delivery best practices

  • Information security best practices

  • Collaborating on all aspects of product strategy and UX

  • Helping to shape the direction of the tech stack, product, and engineering organization ‍
