About the role

Dashworks is the first and only place you need to go to find or discover knowledge about anyone or anything at work. We’re on a path to redesigning the future of collaboration and knowledge sharing. We truly have a unique opportunity to build a category-defining product (and company!) that gets used by millions every day.

We have reached a pivotal stage in our journey:

  • After coming out of stealth last year, we launched our self-serve offering in Q4 2022 and are growing rapidly

  • We’ve built an exceptional team with high talent density, coming from Microsoft Bing, Amazon Alexa, Google, Facebook, Atlassian, and other incredible places

  • We are very well funded: over $9.5M raised to date from many of the top early-stage investors

Joining right now would mean you get to ride the wave of explosive top-of-the-funnel growth, yet get meaningful equity in a pre-series A startup.

As an early engineer to join our team, you'll have the opportunity to materially impact and scale not just the company's product but also the team and the culture. You'll get to drive key product initiatives end to end, and work alongside exceptionally strong co-workers who learn quickly and ship quality work.

Your role

You’ll join a small-yet-mighty team of 14 as an engineering lead and help build core parts of the infrastructure. This will involve:

  • Working closely with many engineers across product, backend, and machine learning and gaining a broad understanding of infrastructure requirements

  • Building a scalable data infrastructure that allows Dashworks to ingest, process, and store Terrabytes of data from 40+ third-party SaaS applications

  • Building the production search infrastructure that allows Dashworks to fetch, rank, and serve search results in real-time

  • Building the developer infrastructure that allows engineers to ship at a blazing-fast speed: contributing to deployment pipelines, infrastructure as code, and observability

  • Help new hires with onboarding and continuously improve the Infrastructure onboarding experience

  • Being an experienced voice in defining engineering direction, culture and roadmap

  • Being hungry for responsibility, growth, and impact

You qualify if you have:

  • 3+ years of experience building large-scale data infrastructure with technologies such as Spark, Flink, Beam, Dask, Airflow, Dagster, etc.

  • 1+ years experience with Terraform and AWS

  • Experience building CI/CD pipelines

  • Experience with Docker, Kubernetes, Postgres

  • Experience building infrastructure monitoring and alerting

  • Ability to quickly learn new frameworks/technologies and move across the stack when necessary

We’ll love you if you have:

  • Willingness and comfort with owning and driving major initiatives independently

  • A love for your craft and the desire to pour your heart into it

  • An intuitive grasp of product-level thinking and system thinking

  • A high bar for quality yet the agility to ship in weekly cycles

  • Strong communication skills

What you’ll love about us:

We're working hard to create a working environment where people feel empowered to do their very best work, make a significant impact, and enjoy what they do. As an early employee, you'll have a massive say in defining the engineering organization, our vision, and our culture. You'll also have uncapped opportunities for growth, learning, and exposure to different business areas.

Here are the Dashworks essential benefits:

  • A competitive salary - regularly reviewed to make sure you're always getting what you deserve.

  • Meaningful pre-Series A share options - you'll own a part of Dashworks and share in our success

  • Healthcare, vision, dental, and mental health coverage

  • Home office setup + hardware/software coverage: get a laptop, and whatever hardware, software, or services you need and are reasonable to do your job

  • Option to work from our sunny loft in SOMA in SF. We'll cover travel expenses if you plan to come to work in person.

  • Unlimited PTO

  • Quarterly team retreats

Interview Process

  1. 30 min chat for us to learn about your ideal role, and past technical achievements, and for you to learn about our vision, current stage, and next milestones

  2. Two 1 hour-long technical interviews involving system design, coding, and debugging

  3. 30-minute interview to see if we have a mutual cultural fit

  4. Chatting with two of your references: your previous coworkers/managers. We offer you to chat with our references as well: investors, advisors, customers

  5. Offer: 3 alternatives with a range of equity and base compensation options. We’ll also answer all your questions about business, finances, cap table, engineering, and anything else you need to make this life-changing decision (for both you and us!)

We move fast through the entire process and aim to have all the steps above completed within 3-5 days. We will make an offer to only exceptional candidates where we have strong conviction in their technical skills and fit for the role.
