About the role

Joining a fast growing start-up isn't like taking a 9 to 5 role in a big company — the impact, learnings and growth here are magnitudes higher, but so is the pace.

In this role, you will:

  • Build and manage entirely new features, applications and platforms — some from scratch, while others on top of what we've built
  • Become good at thinking on both a high level and in detailed code as you thread across frontend and backend, system architecture design, databases, algorithms & data science, and DevOps
  • Balance speed and scale, while keeping in mind the sensibilities to create a high-quality user experience
  • Work extremely closely with the founders, and often cross functionally, sometimes wearing a product manager hat and speaking to users
  • There will be ambiguity, complex code and a whole lot new technology. No one has all the answers, and that's ok. But it means that you need to have a constant hunger for learning and growing — very quickly. Here, your rate of growth matters a lot more than your credentials.


We're looking for people with a founder mentality; we want people who are warriors.

People who obsess over their code; who can't stop thinking about solving challenging problems, and people who just won't give up. It's not easy, and start-ups aren't for everyone, but for the ones that are, this will be the most fulfilling journey as we rocket towards building something people want.

Experience and a strong foundation in any of following will help a long way:

  • You've designed and built backend architectures (e.g. on AWS, designing APIs or components, databases etc..)
  • You're familiar with software engineering best practices — testing, deployments, OOP etc..
  • Understanding of algorithms/data structures and computer science fundamentals
  • Experience with web frameworks — both on the client-side (e.g. React, Angular, Vue, ..) and server side (e.g. Flask / FastAPI / Django)
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • High adaptability, strong problem-solving skills and ability to handle ambiguity
  • UX design sensibility and a drive to build great products for users
