Edge Functions are server-side functions, deployed globally at the edge, using Deno. We want developers to be able to build truly global applications by distributing both compute and data globally. Infrastructure concerns like the region your Supabase project is deployed on, the amount of CPU and memory provisioned fade to the background as developers only focus on iterating on business logic.

We need your help to bring this vision to reality!

You will be:

  • Working closely with the Deno team, relaying our users’ requirements.
  • Allowing users to author functions in languages which compile to WASM.
  • Optimizing our cold start times.
  • Supporting with larger execution times and script sizes.
  • Running functions on a schedule.
  • Integrating functions more tightly with the Auth, Storage, and the rest of the Supabase Stack.
  • Expanding functions to support more use cases (URL shorteners, hosting simple websites).
  • Improve the DX of developing functions locally.

You have:

  • At least 5 years of experience with Node.js.
  • Experience with the WASM toolchain.
  • A strong vision for how compute and data can be pushed to the edge.

We offer:

  • 100% remote work from anywhere in the world. No location-based adjustment to your salary.
  • Autonomous work. We work collaboratively on projects, but you set your own pace.
  • Health, Vision and Dental benefits. Supabase covers 100% of the cost for employees and 80% for dependants
  • Generous Tech Allowance for any office setup you need
  • Annual Education Allowance
  • Annually run off-sites.


Supabase adds auth, realtime, and restful APIs to Postgres without a single line of code.

Each project within Supabase is an isolated Postgres cluster, allowing customers to scale independently, while still providing the features that you need to build: instant database setup, auth, row level security, realtime data streams, auto-generating APIs, and a simple to use web interface.

We are a fully remote company.

Key Tech: Javascript, Typescript, Go, Elixir, PostgREST (haskell), Postgres, Pulumi.

About the team

  • We're a startup. It's unstructured.
  • Collectively founded more than a dozen venture-backed companies.
  • More than 10 different nationalities.
  • We deeply believe in the efficacy of collaborative open source. We support existing communities and tools, rather than building "yet another xx".
  • We "dogfood" everything. If you use it in your project, we use it in Supabase.


  • The entire process is fully remote and all communication will happen over email or via video chat.
  • Once you've submitted your application, the team will review your submission, and may reach out for a short screening interview over video call.
  • If you pass the screen you will be invited to up to four follow up interviews. The calls:
    • usually take between 20-45 minutes each depending on the interviewer.
    • are all 1:1.
    • will be with both founders, a member of either the growth or engineering team (depending on the role), and usually one other person from your immediate team or function.
  • Once the interviews are over, the team will meet to discuss several roles and candidates and may:
    • ask one or two follow-up questions over email or a quick call.
    • go directly to making an offer.
