About us

One of the largest trends that has happened in the last few decades is how people work. Although in software world remote work has been done for several years, never has the tooling been built from ground up for software engineers. We are building the engineering productivity supertools for the new world.

We as strongly believe that we can provide developers with super powers to build faster and better by solving the challenges that they face everyday.

We are an early stage YC-backed startup building developer tools for high growth companies. We are a team of ex-Googlers with background building engineering teams at several fast-growing silicon valley startups.

Our customers include high growth companies such as Slack, Square, Benchling, Figma, Doordash.

About the role

We are looking for our founding product manager to join our nimble team to build the initial product alongside the founders. This person will be an extension to us, the founders, and have the same voice on the table. We think of the first PM as having the ethos of being a founder themselves.

An ideal candidate has a unique mix of software expertise, domain knowledge, and execution driven mindset.

  • Collaborate with our founders to gather requirements through detailed technical discussions and brainstorming sessions.

  • Passion for building engineering tools, excited about solving problems for engineers.
  • Strong communication skills.
  • Previous experience building internal engineering tools a plus.
  • 3+ years of professional experience

Why you should join us
