The Frontend Engineer role

Why this role now?

Our product team is ~10 Engineers, 3 QAs, 2 designers (Valentin, Russ), 1 PM, Engineering Manager (Aaron Cody) and our founders (Pulkit & Brian). We are building the best product in our category and are shipping great functionality, (see this or our LinkedIn page) but we want to go even faster . We currently work in two pods: Better (core product) and Bets (growth/new).
We raised a Series A last year after years of bootstrapped and sustainable growth, so are in a financially strong position. We have never conducted layoffs and believe in thoughtful hiring through forecasting.
We are looking for a Frontend Engineer who excels in a fast pace remote environment, is enthusiastic about building excellent software, and enjoys tackling a diverse range of problems.

Where are we heading?

It’s a great time to join as we have achieved product-market fit, established the fundamentals of operating as a product team, and work with over 300 outstanding teams, such as Twilio Segment, Mixpanel, Fivetran, Salesloft, Chili Piper, and more. View some of our case studies here!
Watch a quick demo of our product below:
Users now expect personalized software, catering to their specific needs and context. This is hard to build and manage at scale, but the companies that succeed with this product-led approach are the winners. This provides us the opportunity to create a category-shaping company that is a part of every company’s product stack! ​
