As a small team, we’re all generalists, constantly pick up new challenges, and interface with customers regularly. Regarding product and code, we’re looking to work with experienced people who can pick a problem and solve it. We don’t expect you to have a background in all the tools we use, but we expect a background working with TypeScript and at least one other language.

What you’ll do

  • Develop new user-facing features. Build high-quality features and ship quickly. 
  • Expand SDK language selection. Our customers are asking us to support a wider range of programming languages. You’ll help us expand our SDK generator selection to include Rust, PHP, Swift, and whatever yet-to-be-discovered programming language gets popular next.
  • Integrate with LLM providers. Leverage AI to offer chat-based search, write human-readable changelogs, and more.
  • Be a polyglot. Contribute code across repositories in different programming languages. You may write code in TypeScript, Python, and Go within the same week.
  • Earn trust with customers. Talk with developers from early-stage startups, growth-stage businesses, and large enterprises to understand their needs.
  • Build our team. We’re growing, and you will work directly with the CEO, CTO, and other founding members to bring in talented engineers.

What you’ll bring

  • 4+ years of professional backend or full-stack development
  • Significant experience working with TypeScript and one other programming language
  • Experience starting a project from scratch. You might have led a project, built a side project you’re proud of, or been a founder.
  • Strong communication skills with excitement to interact with customers over Slack and Zoom
  • (Nice to have) You've worked in a high-growth SaaS company

What we offer

  • Interesting and challenging work
  • Ownership of projects end-to-end while wearing multiple hats
  • First-hand experience building an early-stage startup 
  • A salary of $156,000 to $192,000 and equity
  • Living proximity bonus of $18,000 per year if you choose to live near the office
  • Meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) at the office
  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Unlimited vacation

Our tech stack

  • NextJS + Vercel (Frontend)
  • Fern (API)
  • Microservices: Express (NodeJs), FastAPI (Python)
  • Postgres DB + Prisma ORM
  • AWS (Cloud)
