About Triplebyte
Come help us build the future of software engineer hiring!
Triplebyte is on a mission to create a more just tech industry by fixing hiring for software engineers. This is important because millions of people have skills (and deserve good jobs), but don’t fit the profile that recruiters seek. We aim to cut out that noise by matching opportunities to people who have the skills to succeed in them - regardless of their background. Companies from stealth-startups to global brands source and hire engineers from Triplebyte.
Over the course of 2020, we've executed well on a major pivot in our business strategy amidst a global pandemic and economic recession. Now, we're emerging from the pandemic stronger than ever. We have plenty of runway, we've been outperforming on sales / renewals, and we're excited to ramp up on our favorite activity, hiring software engineers, again.''
We have an all star list of investors, some of which include: Garry Tan, Sam Altman, Paul Graham, Justin Kan, Drew Houston and Michael Seibel just to name a few.

Triplebyte is hiring a Head of Engineering. Demand for software engineers is at an all time high, and our business is booming. Right now, we have a small engineering team. However, we plan to scale this team over the coming year as our business grows. We are looking for an engineering leader to run a fast-moving startup engineering team as we grow. The Head of Engineering will join our core leadership team and report directly to our CEO.

Our Mission

We believe that ability is uniformly distributed across all people. Opportunity to work as a software engineer, however, is very much not. Our mission is to fix this by increasing access to programming jobs. We are broadening the distribution of opportunity.

We do this by building a job search platform that puts engineers in control. On Triplebyte, engineers aren’t judged on what school they went to or what’s on their resume; they are hired (from any background) based on the skills they have. Engineers aren’t ghosted by recruiters; they get actionable feedback to help them learn and improve even if a company does not make an offer. Engineer aren’t spammed by low relevance messages from recruiters; they have tools to find the jobs that they are interested in.

We are a recruiting platform in the same space as LinkedIn or Indeed. However, we build our product for engineers, not for the companies hiring engineers.

The Potential

Software engineering is one of the fastest growing jobs in the United States, and (post-COVID) demand for engineers is at an all-time high. There are over half a million unfilled programming roles in the country right now. However, US colleges and universities only graduate approximately 50k computer sciences students every year. This does not come close to satisfying this demand.

The solution is to look beyond traditional background and credentials. Companies know they need to do this, but they struggle to figure out how. This is where Triplebyte comes in. It’s one of those rare points where we have the opportunity to help BOTH sides of a marketplace, and unlock billions of dollars of economic value. We build a job search platform that puts engineers in control, we help engineers from all backgrounds access jobs, and we help companies fill the other 450,00 open roles every year.

The Role

As Head of Engineering, you would have the following responsibilities:

  • Build and maintain a positive, productive engineering culture as the team scales.
  • Mentor and develop engineering employees.
  • Partner with product to hit company goals.
  • Grow the team by hiring the best engineers you can find (of course, that’s easier here because you have unlimited access to our platform)
  • Be chief engineer. Make or delegate core architecture decisions.
  • Represent engineering in the leadership team (and board meetings)


The only requirement for this role is experience leading a team of engineers at a startup. (We don’t put much stock in credentials or lists of 15 job requirements.)

Reasons To Join

Why should you join Triplebyte? Four reasons:

  1. What we are doing is important. We help self-taught programmers get in the door at companies like Apple and Stripe. We quadruple salaries. This is immensely satisfying. Of course, we also work with engineers from more traditional backgrounds. But even in that case, where someone works—where they will spend 40+ hours every week for several years of their life—is an important decision. We help them get more options and make a better decision.
  2. We’re our own users. We are building a product for engineers. We are able to iterate quickly based on feedback from our team.
  3. We are growing quickly. The number of engineers joining Triplebyte every week grew 4X over the last quarter.
  4. We play a lot of chess and chess variants, and bake sourdough bread in the office on Tuesdays! If you want to play bughouse and eat sourdough bread, join Triplebyte.

Even if your experience doesn’t match all of the above requirements, we invite you to apply anyway. We recognize that talent comes in different forms. Our business is matching engineers with their next great opportunity, regardless of background. We apply the same ethos to our internal hiring. We're looking for a team member with enthusiasm and the ability to do the job, not a perfect resume.
