About Replit
We're focusing on: building the world's most ubiquitous programming environment; inspiring creativity and generating value for creators through community; and designing simple yet scalable infrastructure primitives for the next generation of creators. We want to blur the line between learning and making– a place where you can hang out, tinker with ideas, learn new concepts, and launch a business all in the same day.

About the role Your charter as a Software Engineer on the Workspace/IDE team is to improve the core software creation experience on Replit, while also enabling other engineers to expand Replit’s power. You’ll work directly on core features like the editor and window management. You’ll also build infrastructure to make coding a multiplayer experience and rethink how software version control should work.

Things you might do:

You will…

  • Build the core product surface of Replit: the Workspace. This is where users build their code, their development environment, and view their code running.
  • Enable teams at Replit to build features like extensions, multiplayer, threads, and more.
  • Ship features and build infrastructure using: JavaScript, TypeScript, React, NodeJS, and CodeMirror 6.

You are…

  • Able to demonstrate your 5+ years of working experience with depth of expertise in at least one of the following:
    • Building rich browser-based applications
    • Building frontend infrastructure used by 100+ other developers
    • Shipping your own products to, and working with, users
  • Someone who values simplicity and pragmatism (you think radically but ship incrementally).
  • Self-directed and comfortable working autonomously.

Bonus Points

  • Experience working with IDEs, terminals, or other common developer tools.
  • Experience with collaborative editing technologies such as Operational Transforms or CRDT.
  • Contributions to popular open source Javascript frameworks and libraries.

Why you should join Replit

We're building a first of its kind developer platform that can be used to learn and practice programming, build and deploy applications, and share and discuss with a community of peers. We realize this is an ambitious plan, but we think it's high time someone built this. There is no good reason for the insane fragmentation in programming tools today -- someone learning to code needs to learn at least ten disjointed tools and platforms to do anything interesting with programming.
