Your role will involve close collaboration with cross-functional teams to design, execute, and iterate across our products and infrastructure, with a goal of growing and expanding our reach, while ensuring resilience, scalability, and long-term sustainability. This exceptional opportunity empowers you to leverage your technical expertise and effect substantial change in our production software, which is actively used by thousands of customers.

This is a full-time, fully remote position for someone within PT to ET time zones and comes with an excellent compensation package, including a competitive salary, equity, and top-tier health, dental, and vision coverage.

What you'll be responsible for

  • Full-stack development: develop our web application stack, leading by example through your own code. You’ll be conducting code reviews to maintain and improve code quality and contribute to our coding standards guidelines.
  • System architecture: contribute to the architectural decisions and design of our software, ensuring scalability, security, and performance. You’ll be expected to generate detailed documentation that includes flowcharts, layouts and diagrams where applicable.
  • Product understanding and collaboration: collaboration will be at the forefront of your role, as you'll work closely with the product team to collectively define requirements and gain a comprehensive grasp of how projects contribute to the broader product landscape.
  • Project ownership: to succeed in this role, you must adopt an ownership mentality that extends beyond the confines of your individual tasks. You'll be expected to take charge of driving the development process, ensuring the project stays on course and avoiding any scope creep that could derail it. Moreover, a holistic view means identifying potential roadblocks and proactively seeking solutions throughout the development phase, rather than narrowly focusing on your own responsibilities. This mindset allows you to shepherd the project from its inception through a successful launch, embodying a comprehensive, end-to-end approach to your work.
  • Problem solving: identify and address technical challenges and performance bottlenecks while ensuring the highest level of software quality.
  • Technical leadership: exhibit strong leadership qualities by inspiring and motivating the team and fostering a collaborative and productive work environment.
