Your job

  • We are a dynamic team of engineers that iterate on ideas and products for a growing company that is dedicated to building meaningful tech communities.

You will be able to work with new technologies and architectures in a forward-thinking organization that looks to push boundaries.

  • You love to build things with computers, and experimentation and learning to be a part of your job.
  • You want to be a part of a team that succeeds as a unit, and you want mentorship from other engineers as much as you want to mentor those engineers yourself.

  • You understand that communication and transparency is vital to being part of any functional team.
