About the role
Strava’s Trust and Safety team is looking for an engineer with full-stack web development experience to help us build the tools and experiences that make the Strava platform an inclusive and trusted community. As a member of our team, you'll be working with a cross-functional group of engineers, product managers, designers, researchers, and analysts to keep our community engaged and safe. You will improve existing features and craft new ones, both on the web and via the API that supports our mobile apps.
The Trust and Safety team is based in our Denver, CO office, and this position has the potential to become our first fully remote team member when we return to the office environment.
You’re passionate about this opportunity because you will:
- Make substantial contributions to our community’s ability to participate on Strava in a controlled, informed, and safe manner.
- Work with and learn from the experienced engineers (and others) on our team and across the company.
- Build, support, and own athlete experiences that are powered by technologies like React and Ruby on Rails.
- Directly impact the experience of tens of millions of athletes.
We’re passionate about you because you:
- Have good HTML/CSS fundamentals.
- Have exposure to backend technologies (like Ruby on Rails or similar).
- Have a product and user-focused mindset.
You will be successful here by:
- Taking ownership of your work, partnering with multi-functional peers to ensure projects are accurately prioritized and implemented.
- Engaging in mentorship opportunities to help you grow as an engineer.
- Demonstrating empathy for athletes and their experience while using Strava.
We'd love to talk to you about the future of Strava’s core technologies and your role in developing them. For more on Strava’s engineering team check out the Engineering Blog. It covers a wide range of topics, from how we rebuilt our leaderboard systems to personal perspectives on what it’s like to be an engineer at Strava.
Strava is Swedish for “strive,” which epitomizes who we are and what we do. We’re a passionate and committed team, unified by our mission to connect athletes to what motivates them and help them find their personal best. And with billions of activity uploads from all over the world, we have a humbling and audacious vision: to be the record of the world’s athletic activities and the technology that makes every effort count.
Strava builds software that makes the best part of our athletes’ days even better. And just as we’re deeply committed to unlocking their potential, we’re dedicated to providing a world-class, inclusive workplace where our employees can grow and thrive, too. We’re backed by Sequoia Capital, Madrone Partners and Jackson Square Ventures, and we’re expanding in order to exceed the needs of our growing community of global athletes. Our culture reflects our community – we are continuously striving to hire and engage diverse teammates from all backgrounds, experiences and perspectives because we know we are a stronger team together.
In light of the global pandemic, Strava is currently working in a fully remote capacity. As always, we remain committed to fully supporting our employees, especially their mental health and wellbeing, through these challenging times. Despite challenges in the world around us, we are continuing to grow camaraderie and positivity within our culture and we are unified in our commitment to becoming an antiracist company. We are differentiated by our truly people-first approach, our compassionate leadership, and our belief that we can bring joy and inspiration to athletes’ lives — now more than ever. All to say, it’s a great time to join Strava!
