  • You’ll be the Founding Engineer for Cotera, in charge or moving the direction of our technology stack and culture. You will be involved in listening to customers, working with the founders on direction, and execution.
  • You’ll come to the table with ideas on what tasks and activities to do (and how to prioritize them) in order to make our product better for our customers.
  • You’ll be involved in helping us make business decisions - while you won’t be expected to do the legwork for things like sales, we value your thoughts and we want your help making Cotera one of the world’s best companies.
  • You will own and monitor our infrastructure - as we scale, you’ll be at the forefront of deciding how our infrastructure evolves in order to provide a secure, robust, and fast experience for our customers.
  • You will actively help in hiring and mentoring engineering hires, and shape the future of Cotera’s technology culture.


  • You should crave ownership - remember, we’re not hiring you just for your technical experience. We fully expect you to take the things you learn from conversations in meetings with us or with customers and come up with things to test and build because you think they will either (A.) make for a much better customer experience or (B.) make for a more useful product.
  • You’re able to work in a diverse environment where the target shifts every so often. We’re a fast growing company, we’re well funded and we have customers, but we’d be lying if we didn’t expect small paradigm shifts to our business this early in our path. Things are going to be a bit nebulous, and we’ll work together to cut through the noise and make sure we’re operating in an efficient manner that’s aligned to customer needs.
  • You like learning - with the above point, the only way we can continue to grow is if our appetite for learning new things is large. Small companies come with their set of challenges, and scaling them is no small feat. This means that we can’t be hung up on certain ways of thinking, but instead making sure that we’re aligned on core fundamentals and coming up with innovative and new solutions to apply them.
  • You move quickly and are outcomes driven - we believe that experimenting and taking risks to test new ideas quickly is the best way of making sure you’re learning quickly. Your goals should be to test quickly and deploy your hypothesis in order to understand if they are correct or not.


  • A few years of experience as a full-stack developer familiar with building cloud based applications - you have a level of comfort with some back and front end languages. It’s fine to have a go-to, but we’re counting on your ability to research and understand what technologies are best for solving the problems at hand.
  • You are skilled with at least one server side language, but ideally you’ve got broad taste in programming languages.
  • You are familiar with browser programming in any paradigm, whether building SPAs with React or server side rendering with Rails.
  • You are confident writing SQL and have experience working with at least one RDBMS.
  • You understand how the web works at a high level - you should understand HTTP and TCP, know how to configure DNS, how to provision SSL certs, how to debug basic firewall issues, etc.
  • You are comfortable working with a cloud native tool chain - containers, git, CI/CD, a cloud provider, etc.


  • Competitive salary (we benchmark for NYC and London, and do not make regional adjustments)
  • Employer-sponsored health insurance plans
  • 401k/Pension with 4% match
  • Unlimited time off (which we structure to incentivize you to use)
  • Equipment budget
  • Opportunity to travel on a regular basis to work in person with founders. We don’t have an office, but we regularly meet up in the US or somewhere in Europe.
  • A chance to design benefits for future employees and yourself :)
