About the role

Senior Full-Stack Software Engineer

Instrumentl is growing our team! We’re a profitable, YC-backed startup with over 1,300 nonprofit clients, from local homeless shelters to larger organizations like the San Diego Zoo and the University of Alaska. We are building the future of fundraising automation, helping nonprofits to discover, track and manage grants efficiently through our SaaS platform.

We are hiring a Senior Full Stack Engineer to help us build the right product for our customers quickly and strategically, while maintaining high code quality and standards. You will work closely with our Head of Engineering and partner with team members across design, product, content, and support functions, providing a best-in-class experience to every user.

This is a rare opportunity to join a growing, profitable SaaS company that has already scaled the product to 1,300+ customers at the leadership level. We’ve been incredibly lean and mean so far, but to reach the next 10,000 customers, we need experienced senior engineers to help us grow effectively.

Our small, distributed engineering team builds, scales, and improves our customer experience and in-house tooling from end to end. We’re accountable for the quality and reliability of our product, support, and data stack, and we believe in continuous improvement. As an engineer at Instrumentl, you'll empower your teammates and customers to accelerate social progress and propel innovation.

The Instrumentl team is fully distributed (read: no office!). For this position, we are looking for someone who has significant overlap with Pacific Time Zone working hours.

What You'll Do:

Instrumentl is a startup, so you’ll get your hands dirty in a little bit of everything. That said, here are some of the things you’ll work on:

  • Build, operate, and improve products for all of Instrumentl’s customers, from small, local nonprofits to large organizations.
  • Create engaging, responsive interfaces and APIs that make the fundraising process truly enjoyable, driving our customer adoption and retention.
  • Contribute high-quality, thoroughly tested code to create trustworthy user interfaces and resilient backend systems.
  • Work side-by-side with our product and content teams to improve internal tools and processes, ensuring that our best-in-class product retains its crown.
  • Own problems from end to end, managing complexity and engaging directly with stakeholders to develop short-term and long-term solutions.
  • Be a strategic partner, thinking through everything from business impact to reliability and operability, to the pixel-perfection of individual customer interactions.
  • Uphold Instrumentl’s high standards for product quality and mentor newer team members to do the same.

Who You Are:

  • Experienced: you’ve been a software engineer for 5+ years - startup experience is a huge plus!
  • Generalist: you enjoy working on front end, back end, infrastructure, data pipelines, or billing pipelines as needed.
  • Hands-On: you’ve used Ruby on Rails, JavaScript (EmberJS), Heroku, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, HTML, and CSS, and you’re open to adopting new tools to get the job done.
  • Collaborative: you thrive in an environment involving different functions, stakeholders, and subject matter experts.
  • Methodical: you take pride in delivering projects from ideation to completion.
  • Hungry: you’re on a mission to make an impact, and motivated by constant learning.
  • Results-Driven: you have a history of executing in a fast-paced environment.
  • Passionate: You’re excited about Instrumentl’s mission to propel nonprofits into a bigger, brighter future.
