We're looking for an experienced candidate who's ready for a similar breadth and depth of work, but nobody hits the ground running. You won't be able to answer every question immediately or know how all the systems work on day one, and we don't expect you to. The ideal candidate will have a passion for learning and a desire to work with leading-edge technologies and will work with talented and highly experienced Engineers. You take pride in the work that you do knowing that your work impacts millions of people.

In broad strokes, we're committed generalists, eager learners, conscientious workers, and curators of what's essential. We're quick to trust. We see things through. We're kind to each other, look up to each other, and support each other. We reach for responsibility and hold ourselves accountable. We show up for the work and for each other.

We value people who can take a stand yet commit even when they disagree. And understand the value in others being heard. We subject ideas to rigorous consideration and challenge each other, but all remember that we're here for the same purpose: to do good work together and make a difference in people's live with the product we create. That comes with direct feedback, openness to each others' experience, and willingness to show up for each other as well as for the technical work at hand. We're in this for the long term.

We want strong, diverse teams built from different backgrounds, experiences, and identities. We're ready for the ongoing work that goes into building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best work of your career. Our workplace and our benefits are designed to support a sustainable, healthy relationship with your work.

You can expect a mindful onboarding process with ramp-up and time to learn. You can expect a team that listens, and to be heard. You can expect to give and provide direct feedback. You can expect to be counted on. You can expect to do your best work and build a career here. We build our apps, our teams, and our company for the long haul, with a strong eye to other teams' effectiveness & happiness, from design to support and operations. A healthy, resilient app starts with a healthy, resilient organization.

You might have a CS degree. You might not. That's not what we're looking for. We care about what you can do and how you do it, not about how you got here. A strong track record of conscientious, thoughtful work speaks volumes.
