Who You Are
We're looking for a dynamic full stack engineer to join our team. Our dream candidate would demonstrate the following qualities:
Startup mentality — You believe in rapid iteration, failing and continuously learning from our users to improve. You understand the tradeoffs of limited startup resources and time to market. You love what you're working on, and are deeply ingrained in solving the problem. You're excited to be part of our founding team and help shape our culture as we grow.
True full-stack engineer & architect — You’ll be responsible for all aspects of engineering, from designing data models, setting up data pipelines, implementing api's and interfaces, analytics and tracking, running db migrations, improving code quality and CI/CD, and implementing beautiful UI/UX designs.

Ownership of the end-to-end experience — You will be empowered to take ownership and make instant impact to the product. You will bring learnings and ideas to every discussion, and always represent the voice of our users. You fix problems when you see them, even if it's not your task, constantly contributing to make every user experience feel beautiful and improving the ecosystem for the next engineer that views the code.
Impact-driven product thinker — You will be involved in every aspect of the product development process, from prioritization & scoping to implementation. You will constantly need to weigh the need to invest in long-term improvements against the urgency of getting features out the door. We’ll rely on your judgement and leadership.
