Growth Engineer at Stacker
About the role
Our Mission 🚀
Stacker is on a mission to let anyone create software, by building a platform to let you instantly create apps from the data you already have. We were founded in 2017, and are backed by Y Combinator and Initialized Capital, two of the most successful start-up programs in the world that have produced companies including Airbnb, Stripe and Reddit. 🤩
We want to change the way software is built...that's a pretty big task, and we've got some exciting problems to solve.

We're looking to hire our first ever Growth Engineer to help take Stacker to the next level! Working as part of a growth team, you'll be focussing on using data and experimentation to improve part of our product flow.

Why you should join Stacker
Mission-Oriented People Wanted
We've got a big mission: we want to give everybody the ability to create software, whether they can code or not. And it's no secret that we've got a long way to go to get there. That's why we're not looking for consultants, contractors or general mercenaries. If you're passionate about making change in the world, this might be the place for you. 🚀
We're Solving Hard Problems. Really.
We know, we know: basically every tech startup says this. But I think we've got a pretty decent claim.
We're building an app runtime that lets you specify an entire app in a bunch of JSON config and have it run as a real-time single page app.
We're taking the features common across all web apps and turning them into installable modules that work seamlessly together.
We're trying to not only create one product that is intuitive and beautiful, but a flexible design-system to allow our users to build apps that are beautiful by default and are customisable to the finest level.
And that's all before breakfast. 💪
We've Made A Start, But It's Still Early.
This isn't some mad dream. We've already made a great start. We have hundreds of organizations using Stacker apps today that they've created themselves, and we've just got funded by Initialized Capital.
However, we are still really early (currently 4 engineers). This is the right time to join to have a profound impact on how we take this to the next level.
Come And Work From Wherever You Are
We've always been a remote team — not corona-remote but remote by choice.
We get together three or four times per year, but apart from that, we do all our work remotely, via Slack, Notion, and Zoom. We like it that way.
Whatever Your Background
We want to build a team with as diverse perspectives, skills, passions and backgrounds as we can.
We're not worried about the number of years you've worked or how much formal education you've had. We're looking for bright, kind and passionate people who care about bringing the power of software to the world.
