About the Role

Our Stack: React, Node, TypeScript, NoSQL, Firebase / GCP, Electron

What You’ll Do

You’ll work with two other developers (CTO and first founding engineer) to write software used by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. We'll work together to take ideas and research and turn them into production-ready code.

As an engineer with multiple years of experience, you’ll be expected to set high-level direction and be involved in decision-making with the founders. You'll help drive our engineering culture and practices as we grow our team.

You'll be a great fit if you...

  • are energized by building consumer-facing software that hundreds of thousands of people will use
  • can collaborate and communicate effectively with team members across different job functions
  • believe in failing fast and iterating quickly as we learn from our users
  • are pragmatic with decision making, taking factors like business objectives into account

Things we’re looking for

  • 3 or more years of professional software development experience
  • Experienced in building UI components in React, specifically using hooks
  • Proficient with TypeScript
  • Familiarity with SQL and NoSQL database management
  • Scripting (Bash, Python, etc.)
  • Ability to write clean, well-documented code
  • Located in US-friendly timezones (PST to EST)

Bonus

  • Experience with Firebase and/or Google Cloud services
  • ElectronJS development experience
  • React Native experience
  • Located in Seattle, WA, or on the West Coast

Perks and Benefits

  • Hybrid and fully remote work opportunity
  • Medical benefits
  • Gym membership stipend
  • WFH equipment stipend
  • Learn from a team of social influencers and hackers

About the interview

  1. Introductory video call with CTO to discuss past work experience, your goals for working at a startup, what we're looking for, and so on. As we talk about past experiences, we’ll also ask about high-level technical concepts, but you shouldn’t expect to write code. (30 min)

  2. Remote coding project and discussion. We’ll ask you to spend about 2 hours writing some code that resembles what you would do as part of our role. Then we’ll spend some time discussing your approach, tradeoffs, next steps, etc. (2.5 hours)

  3. (Optional) Work with us for 3-5 days! If you’re able to, we’d love to work with you on a side project that's relevant to our product roadmap, but more on the R&D side of things. This will help us get a better signal for you as a teammate and for you to get a better understanding of our team culture. You'll be compensated for your time.

  4. Final interview loop consisting of live programming problems, system design discussion, and meeting the rest of the team, including a conversation with our CEO. (2 hours)

  5. Offer!
