Why you should join ProPhone

ProPhone believes that home service pros and small businesses are the backbone of the economy and have gone too long without the right technologies. We are enabling service businesses to grow their business online. In a way, we’re building Shopify for service businesses to (1) bring the business online with a website, (2) market the business, and (3) manage everything from one place.

ProPhone is co-founded by Nick Ornitz (CEO) and Shannon Kay (CPO) with an excellent team of Dylan Stone-Miller (Founding Full Stack Engineer), Matthew Konicke (Founding Sr. Backend Engineer), and Michael Zhu (Growth Manager). We're YC-backed and seed-funded, and we're looking for an engineering leader who can not only help us shape our product and engineering culture but also shape the company itself.

We care deeply about a culture that is inclusive and equitable for people of all backgrounds and experiences. We particularly encourage people from communities that tend to be underrepresented to apply, including but not limited to women, people of color, and people who identify as LGBTQ+.

We believe “great candidates” do not come about through simply a checkmark next to past experiences. We believe in hiring people not just skills. Even if you do not check every box but find excitement at the prospect of working with us in this capacity, please apply.
