Our Dream Candidate

We’re excited to be hiring a full-stack product engineer to join our team! Our dream candidate would have the following qualities:

  • True full-stack engineer — You’ll be responsible for all aspects of product engineering, from designing data models in Firestore to implementing UX details in React. You’ll enable the rest of the product team to efficiently ship new features by building and supporting reusable UI primitives and defining our UI language.
  • Impact-driven product thinker — You will be deeply involved in every aspect of the product development process, from prioritization & scoping to design. You will constantly need to weigh the need to invest in long-term improvements against the urgency of getting features out the door. We’ll rely on your independent judgment to make reasonable choices.
  • Startup mentality — Startups are fast-paced, ever-changing, and uncertain. You will wear many hats. You’ll at least need to be okay with that – and ideally, you’ll embrace it.
  • Belief in our mission — Community should play an active role in your life. You understand our vision and believe in the company’s potential to realize it.
You Will:
  • Build core product features & infrastructure
  • Work hand-in-hand with the founders, our design team, and the rest of the engineering team to build the highest-priority features
  • Act with the highest personal integrity and ethics
You Have:
  • 3+ years product engineering experience, including 1+ years in a senior role
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced and ever-changing startup environment
  • Passion for building authentic connection in an increasingly disconnected world
  • Experience with Clojure or LISP languages is a plus. At very least, you should be excited to learn!
