About Gem

Gem is building the platform for modern recruiting. Our software empowers recruiters to source and engage with candidates at scale, and gives talent leaders analytics and end-to-end visibility into the recruiting funnel. Our customers are savvy recruiting teams from industry-leading companies — like Slack, Pinterest, and Dropbox — who understand that getting the best talent in the market is key to maintaining their competitive advantage.
 
Backed by Greylock, Accel and Y Combinator, Gem has gotten enormous traction since we began going to market in 2018.  We grew revenue 4x in 2019, and more than doubled in 2020--making us one of the fastest growing SaaS companies at our scale. We also were listed as one of the top companies in 2021 in the Y Combinator portfolio. 

The Team & Role 

As a Product Engineer at Gem, you will take projects from ideation to production — working directly with users and cross-functional partners in product, design, sales, and customer success to build the best product for users. This is a unique opportunity to wear multiple hats, learn about all aspects of a startup, and be involved in the entire product iteration process
 
Each cohort in the rotational program consists of 3-6 new grad Product Engineers joining Gem around the same time. The program gives each person the opportunity to work on at least 3 multi-month projects within the first year, giving exposure to different parts of the product and members of the team. During the first year, Gem will also organize off-sites, social events, and dedicated time with cross-functional leaders to get to know your fellow Gems.
 
Our technology stack is configured with velocity in mind. GraphQL, AWS, and Python are just a few of the technologies we use to enable velocity. Reliability and consistency are also very important to us. We sync millions of emails, resumes, and applications and rely on that information to inform our customers (has anyone on the team reached out to this person?) and services (should we send a follow-up email?).

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
