  • Make major contributions across the entire stack: infrastructure, frontend, backend, analytics, internal tools

  • Work with teammates that care about writing maintainable code - we practice continuous deployment, incremental pull requests, strict linting, type checking, and strong test coverage
  • Opportunity to grow with the company into a manager, if you consistently achieve targets and you exhibit the habits needed to succeed in the added responsibilities
  • Work directly with and report to our CEO & Founder, who coded the first version of the product
  • Support your teammates and fill in gaps as needed since we are a small team
