About us

We’re an early stage, well-funded startup team with a proven track record of shipping open source software with global adoption. We put a premium on respectful, clear, and complete communication, and we expect each other to be creative, curious, effective, and empathetic.

We believe deeply that the right tools and abstractions enable not just technological transformation, but also organizational transformation. We strive to put the user and their hard work at the center of our decision making. In practice, that means we are looking for engineers who want to write clean APIs and helpful error messages, and who always try to understand user needs when designing a new system.

All of our open source work is done publicly. You can gain context about how we collaborate as a team and the problems we work on by exploring GitHub and looking at our code reviews.

Must-have Qualifications

Limit qualifications to "must-haves". While men are likely to apply for a job when they meet only 60% of the qualifications, women apply only if they meet 100% of them. If you’d still like to call out certain "nice-to-have" skills, you can soften the message with language like “familiarity with,” “bonus points for,” or “if you have any combination of these skills.”

If you don't think you meet all of the criteria below but still are interested in the job, please apply. Nobody checks every box, and we're looking for someone excited to join the team.

  • 1-2 years of B2B sales, Data or Analytics experience - preferably in a customer facing role

Nice-to-have Qualifications

  • A strong desire to learn about how a startup business grows and the market in which we operate

  • A sense of urgency and motivation to exceed aggressive goals

You belong here

We are committed to building an inclusive team and an open source community where no one feels out of place.

You should apply to work at Elementl if you want to work in, and help to build and strengthen, a high-performing software development environment where people of all backgrounds are welcome.
