We’re a close-knit remote team that cares about working hard to do good in the world, while also making sure that we can all live balanced lives. As our user base grows, we’re looking for an experienced engineer to join our team to help scale our platform and expand our product offerings. We’re using data to transform the aging experience of our parents, our grandparents, our loved ones - and ultimately, for ourselves. Come join us! 

About the role: 

We are seeking a self-motivated, experienced senior software engineer to serve as a technical lead on our remote engineering team. This is an opportunity for someone who wants to be part of a small, hardworking team where everyone is invested and cares about doing well, by doing good. You’ll spend 80% of your time working hands on to build new features and products, 10% using your past experience to design and architect our products for scale as our user base grows, and 10% providing technical mentoring to engineers on our team.

About the team:

You’ll be joining a small, but mighty remote engineering team based in the US and in Europe. We have a flat structure and do continuous deployment where each engineer deploys their own work to production at any time and is responsible for what they deploy. While we move quickly and focus on outcomes, we’re invested in PR review as a process and care about quality and standards. Our core stack includes Python, Django, Graphql, React, Typescript, Postgres, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, and Drone.  

As a Senior Lead Engineer you will:

  • Be in the code building new features and fixing issues.
  • Own the strategy for scaling our code base as our user base grows.
  • Do PR reviews and give constructive feedback to other engineers on the team.
  • Help problem solve and figure out solutions when teammates are stuck.
  • Drive short and medium term engineering strategy and planning.
  • Support teammates as they architect new products and features. 
  • Attend daily standups and ad hoc meetings like design reviews.  
  • Collaborate closely with other engineers, product, and design. 
  • Assist with medium and long term product planning.
  • Serve as a technical mentor and source of support for your team members. 

You should have:

  • 6+ years of full stack experience on production web apps using web frameworks (Django, Rails, etc.)
  • 4+ years experience using Python and Django
  • Scaled software to support 10,000s daily active users and a database with 10s of millions of records.
  • Experience using React (in the past 2-3 years), bonus points if you have experience with Typescript. 
  • Experience with CI/CD tools like Helm or Drone. 
  • Hands-on dev ops experience at an early or medium stage startup, bonus points if you have experience with Kubernetes, Docker, and GCP.  
  • Ability to balance focusing on output and meeting business needs with maintaining code quality.
  • Interest in providing technical mentorship to a team of motivated peers.
  • Passionate about software development, you do this because you love it.
  • You love the small team startup environment and working hard and fast to have a big personal impact. 
  • Thrive when working remotely.
  • Based in the US or Europe - can work hours overlapping with 9-3pm EST 

In addition to “doing well by doing good”, we offer:

  • Pay: Competitive salaries + stock.
  • Stock options: Ownership in a fast-growing company.
  • 401k: We care about your ability to save for your future.
