Benefits

Opportunity to be a founding engineer of a funded start up. Focus on impact and company culture, with founders who have been there before.


Company culture and how your role fits:

  • You prove concepts quickly. You strive on proving that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
  • You do what it takes to get the job done. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the front-end stack, you go above and beyond to understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, caching layer, infrastructure, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.
  • You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code "released" until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
  • You want to play an active role in how computers impact the world around us. You ponder about how to close the loop between human input and computational methods.
  • You are a team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team and that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
  • You have design sensibilities.You have an understanding about what makes software a pleasure to use, not only as an end user, but also as a consumer of APIs and libraries.
