About the role

The Role:

We're looking for a product engineer with strong design chops who is fluent in React/Typescript and CSS. Simply put, we want someone who will take Porter's usability and UX/visual polish to the next level. You will be involved in all feature discussions and will shape the trajectory of our product.

You will:

  • Improve the UI/UX and organization of the dashboard
  • Implement a design system and define the visual language of our platform
  • Raise the standard for code quality and our engineering culture

Who we're looking for:

We value rate of learning above all else. That said, complete fluency in React/Typescript and CSS is expected. If you can balance being collaborative while still taking pride in your work, we'd love to talk. As is the case with most early-stage startups, you should be comfortable with regularly shifting priorities and iterating at a very rapid (daily) velocity.

You should be comfortable wearing multiple hats and might sometimes be expected to act in a PM-like capacity to execute your product vision for Porter.

Tech stack:

  • Web: React (styled-components), TypeScript
  • Backend: Go, Kubernetes + Helm APIs, Postgres, Redis
  • Infrastructure: AWS, GCP

Porter is open source. You can view our entire codebase here.

Our team is currently based in NYC, but we are open to remote hiring for those who can guarantee overlap with our core working hours (Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm ET). If you're in New York City, we're happy to discuss specific working arrangements.

Interested? Email your resume to jobs at getporter.dev and let us know why you would be a great fit for this role.

Why you should join Porter

Porter is a Platform as a Service that runs in the user's own cloud. We allow users to deploy applications to their own AWS/GCP accounts by simply pointing at the code they want to run and automate devops from CI/CD to autoscaling. Under the hood, Porter runs on Kubernetes but abstracts away its complexity from the end user.

We are growing fast, small but formidable, and are at one of the most exciting junctures a startup can be at with the state of our growth. We are building out our founding team in NYC and are looking for people who can share this exciting journey with us.
