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 automates DevOps and hosting for the fastest growing companies. We let users link up their own AWS/GCP, point to the code they want to run, and then put the rest of the hosting process on autopilot (CI/CD, SSL, autoscaling, zero downtime deploys, infra monitoring, etc).
