🤝Why you should join GitStart

The team is amazing

  • CEO is a national maths olympiad winner and former Microsoft Typescript team member who has already built the same technology in the Quality Assurance market

  • COO is a Sailing World Champion and IronMan who launched the first and largest coding bootcamps for inmates in Europe and spoke at TEDxHongKong

  • Our head of CS bootstrapped a crypto startup to 35k active users, a senior engineer is a Google Women TechMakers Scholar who organizes 500+ people rave parties, another has already been through the whole seed to unicorn journey,... and the team is diverse: 50% women engineering team, 9 nationalities

  • Investors and advisors include 2 CTOs of the 10 highest valuable companies, several CEOs and CTOs from the top 10 highest-valued startups worldwide, and YC, the world’s most prestigious accelerator

The business is growing exponentially

  • Growing 15% month over month for the past 6 months

  • Despite avoiding press coverage as we’re in stealth mode, we were named us top 20 companies worldwide shaping the future of remote work by AngelList, alongside Slack, Figma and Notion

  • We just closed a large undisclosed fundraising round with the best investors on the planet

It changes lives

  • GitStart helps driven but unemployable devs (wrong timezone, poor English, very junior) grow into stars who get hired at Facebook, Google and Amazon

  • GitStart’s developer community is growing virally in places like Nigeria, Brazil, Kenya, Pakistan, India, Nepal, etc with more than 2,000 monthly applicants

  • “We don’t grow devs to make money, we make money to grow devs”

🎯 Your missions

  • Collaborate - work with our product manager and our exceptional engineering team - early unicorn employees, Typescript and VSCode team engineer, Facebook Hackathon winner, Google Women TechMakers Scholar, etc - to build a category-defining product

  • Discover - together with the product manager, dive into engineering processes and tools, organize user interview sessions and perform user testing at the beginning and end of the design cycle

  • Develop - continuously improve the product by designing mock-ups or prototypes (low, mid or high def) in Figma, and ensure proper implementation with the tech team

  • In other words, you own UX and UI end to end

  • Identify the best tools to maximize the team’s productivity - we have an unlimited budget to make the team productive

  • Meet Silicon Valley’s best product designers to learn decades of insights in mere months

🥇 You’re the right person if…

  • If you don’t fit the bill, bear in mind that all we’re really looking for is evidence of exceptional ability!

  • You have a technical background - computer science, electrical engineering, etc

  • You’re analytical - you’re great at identifying edge cases

  • You have a successful track record of owning UI/UX design from discovery to production

  • You’ve mastered modern design tools like Figma

  • Bonus points if you have already worked in a software engineering team

🎁 What we offer

  2. Regular off-sites to bond and explore the world (last one: 1 month in Paris 🥐!)

  3. The Hong Kong office features gym, pool, music room, coffee machines, and a nice view on the ocean 🌊 - we can sponsor visas. The SF/NYC offices closed with Covid as we went remote but we’ll be back!

  4. Personalized growth plan & mentorship for every employee + access to the world’s most prestigious entrepreneurship community through the Y Combinator 🤝

  5. Competitive compensation and meaningful equity along with a chance to make a significant contribution to changing the lives of millions of developers - “We don’t grow devs to make money, we make money to grow devs”
