  • Please give (actionable, timely) feedback on the product, team, and team members! We strive for a trust-and-respect-based relationship across the team. That means everyone should respond well to valid feedback about actions. Responding well can mean many things, including disagreement.

  • Experience with our entire stack is not necessary, but familiarity with Node.js, React, and TypeScript will help you hit the ground running.
  • You are experienced with mitigating an incident quickly, but also following it up with root cause analysis, identifying systemic solutions. and implementing them.
  • You break down big ideas into bite-sized steps and build incrementally.
  • You can put yourself in user’s shoes, and understand their pain points.
  • People tell you that you communicate well.
  • You are located in either the US or Canada. 


  • Great compensation package and stock options.
  • Inclusive Healthcare Package.
  • Learn and Grow - we provide mentorship and send you to events that help you build your network and skills.
  • Flexible Time Off - Flexible vacation policy with a recommended 4-weeks per year, and paid holidays.
