About Gatsby

You may know Gatsby, a wildly popular open-source project that has over 50k GitHub stars and a thriving community of more than 3,000 contributors. Beyond open source, we’re also a newly commercializing business, one that helps professional developers build blazing-fast apps and websites without needing to become a performance expert.

As a remote-first, community-focused team, Gatsby’s core values include:

  • Prioritize the customer
  • Expect excellence, have empathy
  • Take ownership
  • Grow through inclusivity
  • Collaborate by default

Details of the role

  • Type of Work: Full-time
  • Location: Remote (preference for UTC-8 to UTC+4)
Why we’re hiring

We’re continuing to make big investments in the open source Gatsby framework and need a strong leader to help us shape the future of the Web!

Why this is interesting

Are you passionate about Open Source technologies, front end development frameworks, and the possibility to effect real change in how the Web is made? Gatsby is more popular than ever and we are investing heavily into the framework to ensure we can deliver on the needs of our developer community and drive innovation into Gatsby Cloud, our platform for building, previewing, and hosting Gatsby sites. Bring your energy and passion to this role and there is no limit to what can be accomplished!

Day-to-day responsibilities
  • Technical leadership through regular code reviews, contributions to the source code, and mentorship to junior team members.
  • Contribute to the open source community of Gatsby by cultivating a strong commitment to new developers and making the framework approachable, easy to use, and well supported by the contributor community.
  • Collaborate with other technical engineering managers and team members to ensure the Framework Squad has the best environment for success.
  • Pair with an experienced Product Management counterpart to initiate and execute on quarterly planning cycles for your Squad, ensuring that Squad’s “bets” deliver high value to the customer.
  • A track record of delivering high quality software in a fast paced environment.
  • Demonstrated ability to lead high achieving teams in the continuous delivery of customer value.
  • Experience and genuine curiosity in front end Web development technologies and trends, ideally with practical experience in open source frameworks like Gatsby and Next.js.
  • Coaching mindset with ability to drive change via direct reports or Gatsbytes in other areas of the business.
  • Experience and passion in recruiting and hiring highly capable and qualified candidates to join the Framework Squad responsible for the open source framework.
  • Curiosity around the way content management systems (CMS) can be enhanced through caching, pre-rendering, and content previews.
The best parts of this job
  • Work with a talented group of engineers dedicated to the craft of high performance, scalable front end frameworks.
  • Work remote from anywhere with overlap in EU time zones!
  • Help drive adoption of the Gatsby framework by shipping a unique and diverse set of features every quarter.
The worst parts of this job
  • Gatsby is a global company and so it can be challenging to find meeting times that work for everyone.
  • We’re a fast-paced startup which can have a lot of change.
Benefits and perks
  • Unlimited vacation policy, with a minimum of 15 days paid vacation time
  • Amazing health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family (US only)
  • 3 months of paid parental leave covering both adoption and foster placement
  • Stock options in a fast-growing startup
  • We’re remote first, so skip the commute
  • Set up costs for a home office OR co-working/private office reimbursement
  • New laptop of your choice
  • Wifi and cell phone reimbursement
  • Fly to cool locations 3x/year for company-wide meetups (once it’s safe to travel again!)
