About Middesk

Middesk's mission is to enable every business to access the products and services they need to grow and thrive. We believe that if we can make it easy for a business to access financial products, hire new employees, and transact with other businesses, that we increase the odds of success for that business to contribute to its community and the broader economy.

Our Identity provides accurate, complete information that financial services companies need to make efficient onboarding decisions. Our Agent product makes it easy for employers to file with the state and federal agencies needed to establish their business across the country. Our customers include Affirm, Brex, Plaid, Mercury, Divvy, Rippling, Gusto, and others.

Based in San Francisco, CA, Middesk is backed by Sequoia Capital, Accel Partners, and Y Combinator.

The Role

  • We are looking for exceptional engineers to join our early, yet growing team

  • You will:

    • Craft innovative products to delight our customers

    • Contribute across and throughout the product development lifecycle

    • Help shape the foundation for our engineering culture

Why We Need You

  • Our company and product are growing fast and we’re looking to build on our focused team effort across a variety of projects and priorities.

What You Will Achieve

  • As an early member of our Engineering team, you will contribute directly to the development of the dashboard, API, and additional services that our customers directly engage with. 

  • You will work closely with customers, internal stakeholders, and the executive team to develop, prioritize, and execute against a roadmap that directly impacts customers and drives our business ahead. 

  • You will ship fast, iterate rapidly, and identify ongoing opportunities to deliver value to customers.

Experience that would help you succeed: (Note, we don't expect you to spike in all aspects, but to grow there in time)

  • Skill in building beautiful products: You have strong, demonstrable experience shipping high-quality products, and a proven track record in raising and maintaining the bar in code quality and user experience.

  • Expertise in technology: You are familiar with the latest trends and best practices, but are well-versed enough to discriminate between hype and value.

  • Adept at problem-solving: You are able to think through customer requirements to come up with high-impact ways of quickly solving their problems

  • Driven: You have experience in the past that lends itself to being able to dive in on tactical problems, while also being able to scale with the company as the needs change.

Why You’ll Love Working Here

  • Curiosity to go deep: We are all working to get better at our craft. We don't expect you to be perfect day #1, but we want you to share our appetite for constant learning and improvement.

  • Moving forward together: We're in this together, you will always have support from your cross functional counterparts. We achieve our results as a team....and celebrate as a team ;)!

  • Customer empathy and advocacy: Our customer's problems are our problems. Our team works very hard to understand core issues and create novel solutions. We expect you to advocate for their perspective in where we need to focus.

  • Personal and professional development: We're early in our journey, which means that there is an opportunity to learn how each piece of our business works. Whether you're looking to understand how product management, fundraising, or hiring works, you can be sure that we'll be able to position work to help you develop in these areas.

Why you should join Middesk

Middesk is building the trust layer between businesses. Where trust between businesses used to rely on a handshake, building trust between modern companies requires tools that deliver complete and reliable data at scale. Middesk is on a mission to redefine how businesses build trusted relationships.

Today, there are no reliable and scalable solutions for understanding the legitimacy, trustworthiness, or credit capacity of a business. We're building the end-to-end solution for companies to verify, screen, and monitor their customers. To do this, we're looking for individuals who think about problems holistically and in-depth, who are relentlessly curious, self-starters, and determined to drive ideas from inception through to completion.

Middesk is a Y Combinator company and is backed by the top VCs in the world including Accel and Sequoia Capital. We’re led by an experienced team that has experience growing and scaling companies like Checkr and Zendesk.
