  • Earn trust with customers. Talk with developers from early-stage startups, growth-stage businesses, and large enterprises to understand their needs.
  • Build our team. We’re growing, and you will work directly with the CEO, CTO, and other founding members to bring in talented engineers.

  • 4+ years of professional frontend development, ideally some of which you’ve spent in startups
  • Significant experience working with JavaScript/TypeScript, React, and Next.js
  • Previous experience working closely with designers, building flexible, composable libraries and components
  • An attention to detail with a high degree of craft
  • A customer-first mindset and an interest in talking with customers to make sure we’re building a polished product that meets their needs
