About the role

Vessel is looking for a founding BE engineer (1st hire) to help us scale our integrations, infrastructure, and engineering team!

Why You?

You're excited by the opportunity to get in early at a fast-growing startup and help shape the company's vision, culture, and product in a unique way.

You're interested in one or all of these potential projects:

  • Own and architect our ETL and data-pipeline top to bottom.
  • Maintain and design portions of our public API.
  • Extend our catalog of integrations.
  • Work with customers to help onboard their engineers in a timely and efficient manner. Work directly with their engineers to improve the Vessel API developer experience.

Vessel is an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status, or any other protected class.

About the interview

Phone Screen [30 Min]

  • Chat about your background to ensure the role is a good fit + give you an opportunity to ask questions about Vessel!

Technical Screen [1 hr]

  • You'll share your screen and we'll walk through a coding question together. We don't ask LeetCode/HackeRrank-type questions and you'll work in your own IDE.

Onsite [3 hr]

  1. Technical Design question [1 hr]
  2. Coding question [1 hr] (same as technical screen, no-leetcode in your own IDE)
  3. Behavioral interview [30 min]
  4. Closing/Questions for us [30 min]

Our Interview is meant to simulate what working at Vessel is like as closely as possible. We love candidates that have researched the space and come prepared with questions about Vessel.

Why you should join Vessel

Why Now?

Over 90% of businesses use a CRM, but many companies with integrations only support 1-2 CRMs. It takes 65 CRMs to cover 60% of the market meaning existing companies with integrations are missing out on a huge number of potential customers.

Why Us?

We just raised $2.5M in seed funding from Accel and Bain Capital Ventures and are growing rapidly. Additionally, the Co-founders of Vessel were both engineers at an enterprise Saas company building out integrations (where they got the idea for Vessel) and have been working together for years.

What else?

Working at a startup is hard enough, so we've created a generous benefits package and culture that make working at Vessel enjoyable and rewarding. We offer: above-market salary and equity, hybrid/in-office/or remote work, unlimited PTO (15 days encouraged), in-office lunch & dinner, Phone & Internet stipend, $150 WFH stipend, $150 quarterly growth stipend.
