About the role

Who we are:

Glimpse is building a new experiential retail channel where brands place their products into short-term rentals and resorts for guests to try and purchase the product. We are reimagining product discovery where consumers can discover products where they are.

We've raised $6.2M from incredible investors, have a network of 8,000 properties and 15+ brands, and are growing quickly. It's an incredible time to join with unique opportunities to tackle challenges in both going 0-1 and scaling.

We're looking for someone passionate about our vision to come and lead our data platform - from the architecture to our user-facing curation engine.

What you'll be doing at Glimpse:

  • Working 0-1 to define key decisions around architecture and engineering decisions to set a scalable foundation for the Glimpse data platform
  • Leading a team of engineers to evolve the current solution
  • Working directly with founders to define the product roadmap
  • We use modern technologies like Next.JS, Prisma, Postgres, Serverless framework, and AWS.

To take on this challenge, we're looking for someone who:

  • has 4+ years of experience working on data projects and full-stack products
  • has experience working 0-1 and managing an engineering team
  • has experience scaling to thousands of users
  • preferred experience: worked at a startup, led end to end product launches before

About the interview

Typically, we do an initial screen, a technical interview, and a culture fit interview. We prefer contract to hire or working on a project together for both sides to see if it's a good fit.

Why you should join Glimpse

Glimpse was started in 2020 by Akash, Kushal, and Anuj in college with a vision of bringing brands to consumers where they are. To date, Glimpse has raised $6.2M, partnered with 15 brands and 8,000 properties, and is rapidly growing. We're changing the way people discover products and are working on exciting challenges from physical to digital to make this happen.
