Full time Engineering

Job Description

We are growing quickly and we’re looking for team members that are excited to help us connect every developer in the world with the right tools and the companies using them. Our vision is to transform the way that all SaaS tools and infrastructure are bought and sold.

We’ve recently raised a Series A round with just a team of 6; we’re now set to grow to 20 teammates. Our Director of Engineering spent time at Yelp & Yammer, while our new Head of Content joined us after managing the Stack Overflow blog. The rest of our team comes from companies like Etsy, DigitalOcean, and Squarespace.

This position is based in San Francisco, CA at our new office. 

ABOUT THE ROLE:

As a Backend Engineer, you are a central part of the Engineering team, and you will influence the direction of the core functionalities of ourproduct on a regular basis. You'll have a lasting impact on how hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions of developers and engineers build software.

You have experience building and shipping web applications and systems at scale, with at least two years of experience working directly with Rails, or three years of experience working with another modern framework such as Django or Express.js (Bonus points if you are comfortable with JavaScript MVC frameworks as well). You have experience building APIs at scale, both in relation to the frontend and also as stand-alone products.

You hate bureaucracies and want to work at an early stage company that has very little processes. You’re comfortable taking the initiative and ownership and just building products that you want to use as an engineer, and at the appropriate milestones, open-source them out into the world. You understand deeply the value of the software you are building and shipping, and how they contribute to the overall goals of the product and the company. 

You are flexible, proactive, and curious. You understand best practices but won’t shy away from challenging the status quo and proposing new and better solutions. Similarly, you respect the folks you work with and welcome being challenged. You believe trust is at the root of all great teamwork, and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to help us learn and get better.

Bonus Points:

- You have solid intuitions around data, and how to use data to better inform your decision-making. 
- You’re a tools geek; you sign up for new tools and services just to kick the tires and satisfy your curiosity.
