About the role

Mintlify is Growing. Come Grow With Us.

The best developer-oriented companies (think Stripe, Twilio, MongoDB) all have built world-class documentation at their backbone. Our mission is to offer that to every other company so they can focus on building what they do best.

Some things you will do:

  • Help build from 0 to 1. Brainstorm, design, and code—solving problems that span multiple domains. Building a customer-facing analytics dashboard, building a scalable infrastructure to support thousands of customers, and integrating with third party providers are just a few examples
  • Refine current product: building new functionality, refactoring, and improving usability and performance. For example, improving our onboarding flow, redesigning user-facing components, decreasing deployment time
  • Create internal tooling, helping ensure our team has the tools we need to properly onboard and support the customers we work with.
  • Initiate and own experiments and projects that help drive company and product strategy.

What You'll Need:

  • Ability to learn fast and move faster.
  • A love for tackling difficult problems with a team of smart peers.
  • Knowing how to ship early and ship often
  • You are customer obsessed - you love learning from their pain points, and brainstorming how best to solve their problems.
  • Prior experience building web applications and or backend system that have grown quickly and scaled to handle many users.
  • Fluency with React, Typescript, and REST APIs and consider yourself full-stack.
  • Bonus: you're knowledgeable and have previously worked in dev-tools, either at a big company or at a startup.

Even if you don't necessarily meet all of these qualifications, please don’t hesitate to apply anyways! We're always on the search for great talent and would love to get to know you!

We keep a lean team, and this is a rare opportunity to join. You’ll learn a lot, build awesome products, and grow as our company scales.
  • Huge opportunity. There are over 27 million software developers in the world it’s growing faster than any other profession. Developers live and breath in documentation, and we plug ourselves into that.
  • Fun work environment. We love our game-nights, meme slack emojis, and cow jokes (the CEO knows over 100 of them and TechCrunch made fun of him for it).

  • Flexible and remote work culture
  • Competitive compensation and equity
  • Health, dental, vision
  • 401k (or RRSP for Canucks)

Why you should join Mintlify

Mintlify is a developer-oriented communications platform. We help product-led teams build the documentation of their dreams: one that is high converting, easy to maintain, analytics-enabled, and simply gorgeous out of the box.

We are opinionated when you're lazy and infinitely flexible when you need it to be. As a result, we put a lot of effort into designing products that are approachable to beginners yet extendable for power users

We believe that a small and fast-moving team, under the right environment, can build world-class products. We hire exceptional, kind, biased-for-action people and provide an environment where we can be happy, challenged, and invited to do our best work.

We are averaging >25% monthly growth and are default alive. We put customers first and are relentlessly focused on building the best product and hiring exceptional people.

We are well funded and backed by great investors, including Y Combinator, Bain Capital Ventures, Quinn Slack, and many amazing angels. We'd love to share more once we meet in person.
