We give our engineers an environment in which they can contribute from day one while also providing opportunities for learning and growth. You’ll learn how our entire stack works – from data ingestion to search, building exciting experiences which will directly impact our development community.

What We Offer You:

  • A constant stream of new things to learn. We’re always expanding into new areas, bringing in open source projects and contributing back, and exploring new technologies.
  • A set of exceptionally talented and dedicated peers, all the way from engineering to product management and customer support.
  • Growth and mentorship. We believe in growing engineers through ownership and leadership opportunities. We also believe mentors help both sides of the equation.
  • A stable, collaborative and supportive work environment. We work in an open environment, have a shared kitchen and sit down for a quick sync every morning.
  • We don’t expect people to work 12 hour days. We want you to have a successful time outside of work too. We trust our colleagues to be responsible with their time and commitment, and believe that balance helps cultivate a phenomenal environment.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Strong technical leader with proven track record of excellence with a strong bias towards execution. 10+ years of experience and a MS in Computer Science preferred.
  • Desire to Learn and Adapt. We have a lot of projects going on at once, and you’ll have to learn to navigate the code and features. You’ll constantly be learning new areas and new technologies.
  • Ability to work with multiple teams across various locations and functions (engineering, product management, etc.).
  • Ability to coach/mentor junior engineers on the team, provide technical direction and champion engineering best practices.
  • Strong customer focus and passion for building intuitive products that will delight our engineering community.
  • Ability to code in Javascript, Go and Python is a must; the developer tooling is primarily written in these languages. This doesn't mean you are an expert in all aspects, but you should be comfortable writing code in them.
  • Experience in building developer tools and growing developer ecosystem is preferred.
  • Experience with Cloud is preferred. You have experience writing software and operationalizing it for deployment to Cloud Services like AWS and Azure.
