    • We are looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to lead the team dedicated to driving Gatsby’s open source project. Join us in our mission to make website development fun by making it simple.

      About us

      Gatsby is a remote-first, community-focused team working to build a high-performance, fun to use, accessible, and astonishingly flexible presentation layer for any data source. Our core values include transparency (our work is public most of the time); creating a safe, high-trust team; building incredible developer experiences; maintaining a healthy working environment; and helping deliver web experiences that feel amazing to use on every device and connection type. 

      Details of the role

      Type of Work: Full-time employee Location: Remote

      Why we need you

      Gatsby is the future of the web, and the web is an incredibly diverse ecosystem. This means we need leaders who can intuitively appreciate the value that the commercial services we build offer customers. The open source team is expanding rapidly and we need someone with a deep understanding of the very cool technology, but an equally profound sense of empathy required to grow both individual contributors and future leaders in this critical part of our company.

      Why this is interesting

      Gatsby is a wildly popular open-source framework that is changing the architecture of the web. The open-source team is responsible for driving the roadmap for the large and complex codebase that is Gatsby.js. Between their own contributions and the community, they merge nearly 500 pull requests in a typical month. You’ll help lead the team in not only tackling key technological challenges, but also bolstering and focusing community contributions.

      Your responsibilities

      You will be responsible for people, projects, and processes. You will partner with your team and peers to:

      • Foster an inclusive environment through empathy, not just inside engineering, but across all the teams in Gatsby, and beyond to the open source community.
      • Wrangle many timezones and introduce remote work best practices, as you will lead a geographically diverse team.
      • Exercise good judgement in interacting with the enthusiastic community, as an exemplar for your team in this area.
      • Partner with Product and Design to find the best blend of quality, agility, and work/life sanity.
      • Make sure your team is fully equipped for their job, including:

        • Context - make sure they know what is happening outside engineering
        • Vision - make sure they know what it coming next, even if we’re not there yet
        • Skills - ensure that each team member grows and feels confident in delivery
        • Tools - choose and evolve the dev environment (with the team’s input)
        • Processes - hand-in-hand with tools, make sure that we’re continuously evolving our planning and dev approach to have just enough structure to keep us on track
        • Empower your team members by offering them clear ownership of technical challenges in a world where you and other leaders are still wearing many hats and finding the ones with the best fit.
        • Collaborate with other engineering managers to evolve the management practices at Gatsby. We’re all learning more every day!
      This might be you if you….
      • Have successfully managed people, including recruiting and hiring, coaching, mentoring, evaluating, and promoting.
      • Have experience working with (and ideally contributing to, or managing) open source communities and products.
      • Have strong communication skills, verbal and written.
      • Genuinely enjoy helping people, both inside the company and out.
      • Have a consistent track record of delivering high-quality software in regular, iterative releases through coordinating a remote team.
      • Are able to coordinate and work with teams and stakeholders across the organization, and even beyond the company, including effective project management skills in an environment where you may not control many of the variables.
      • Have previous experience with React, Node.js, and GraphQL. Gatsby is built on React, Node, and GraphQL, so you should be experienced with usage and the syntax.
      • Have strong empathy and a willingness to define the nuances of team roles (including your own!) as you go.
      The best parts of this job
      • The people and culture of a team genuinely invested in building something great.
      • You’ll be helping curate one of the most popular, fastest growing open source frameworks in the world.
      • You’ll be leading a group of supportive, talented, and friendly people towards delivering a great framework and developer experience.
      • You’ll have the opportunity (even expectation) to constantly learn and innovate, in both tech approaches and process definition.
      • Your role will be key to making Gatsby the next way to build on the web—and a technology that enables the next billion internet users.
      • You will get to look back on this time as the “early, exciting days” of Gatsby. You’ll get to watch members of your team become future leaders and luminaries in a space that isn’t fully defined or formed yet.
      The worst parts of this job (maybe)
      • The community and our team aren’t always operating as equals, and don’t always have perfectly aligned motivations. Your job includes the unenviable task of helping us figure out the right focus in a variety of complex situations, and with a wide range of (understandable, but sometimes mutually exclusive) community expectations.
      • We’re all still figuring a lot of stuff out. Things can feel unstructured or messy. Part of your job is to smooth out what we collectively don’t like. And that can be hard.
      • The company is growing fast, which means lots of people wearing lots of hats, and sometimes exchanging them for new ones. Doing this while protecting a team (or individual’s) sense of ownership and security is hard. And it’s part of this job. Sorry.
      • Product and strategic direction can change. We’re building a whole new area of growth in an absolutely huge potential market. Absorbing (and/or pushing back as you see fit) that change so your team doesn’t feel unnecessary churn is also hard. And also part of this job. Still sorry.
      Benefits
      • Unlimited vacation policy, with a minimum of 15 days paid vacation time
      • Amazing health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family (US only)
      • Skip the commute with remote work
      • 3 months of paid parental leave covering both adoption and foster placement
      • Fly to cool locations 3x/year for company-wide meetups
      • Stock options in a fast-growing startup
      • Gatsby Sabbatical: 4 weeks of paid vacation after 4 years tenure
      Equal Opportunity Statement

      Gatsby is an equal opportunity employer. We eagerly seek applicants of diverse backgrounds and hire without regard to race, color, gender identity, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, physical abilities (or disability), age, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

      OUR MISSION:

      Build intelligent tools that help communities adapt to the impacts of climate change.

      Hi! We're Forerunner.

      We believe that adaptation is a necessity, not a luxury, and all communities should have access to powerful software that helps them plan for the future. The challenge of climate change is complex — it implicates how municipalities plan, manage capital, and communicate to both residents and higher levels of government. Forerunner helps local communities do these things better by empowering them to access, understand, and mobilize local-level flood risk data at scale. Our software is built to be easy-to-use, so that the planners and floodplain managers preparing for our future can focus on the important stuff.

      Currently, we're working with a handful of communities, including the City of New Orleans and Pinellas County, FL. Our engineering team is hard at work on projects that involve extracting information from permits, managing complex datasets, and incorporating geospatial data. Our mission is ambitious, and we have a significant amount of work ahead. As our newest team member, you'll be joining us at a crucial time when you'll have a real impact on our direction and our partner municipalities' success.

      About the position:

      We're looking for a senior full-stack engineer with 5+ years of experience to join us. We would love to hear from you if you're interested in what we do and have a proven track record of leading mid- to large-scale technical initiatives. In general, you might be a good fit if you:

      • Have partial, or full, familiarity with our technical stack: Node, GraphQL, React, Postgres + PostGIS, Heroku. If not, we would like you to be confident in your ability to ramp up quickly.

      • Are comfortable with a high degree of ambiguity. Since we are constantly learning a lot from our partners, we are looking for someone who has a bias toward action and can balance the challenging trade-off between quality and speed.

      • Consider yourself to be a great communicator. We're a small team working remotely, which requires us to be prompt and clear with written and spoken communication.

      Our team has a lot to offer.

      Forerunner is a seed-stage company with an interdisciplinary team. We are motivated by seemingly intractable problems and work hard to support one another.

      • We're mission driven. Our mission orients our business strategy and pushes us to work with a sense of urgency. We’re in the weeds — our entire team spends time engaging with our partners in the field to better understand the real-world challenges they face.

      • We're a small team. We're currently 4 people — you will be the 5th. As a member of our growing team, you will quickly become an invaluable part of our organization and have a meaningful impact on our business and technical direction. We welcome unique perspectives and backgrounds. Your opinion matters and we hope you'll share it.

      • We're remote. While many of us are based in NYC, we're happy to have you work where you are happiest and most productive. We offer schedule flexibility and ask for accountability in return.

      • We want you to be happy and healthy. Forerunner offers competitive compensation, health/vision/dental coverage (we pay 70%), and commuter benefits. We also have a quarterly wellness reimbursement so that you can have flexibility in defining what health means to you.

      We look forward to meeting you. To apply or ask questions, shoot us a message at [email protected]!

    • Our mission

      The problem: In 2017, nearly 60% of adults in sub-Saharan Africa had no bank account. That's for good reason—the fees are too high, the closest branch can be miles away, and nobody takes cards. Without access to financial institutions, people are forced to keep their savings under the mattress. Small business owners rely on lenders who charge extortionate rates. Parents spend hours waiting in line to pay school fees in cash.

      How we're solving it: We're building financial services to work as they should: no account fees, instantly available and accepted everywhere. In places where electricity, water and roads don't always function, we're creating financial infrastructure that "just works." In fall 2017, we launched a mobile app in Senegal for cash deposit, withdrawal, and peer-to-peer and business payments; we're now processing over 200k payments every month. Our goal is to make Africa the first cashless continent, starting with Senegal. That's where you come in...

      How you'll help us achieve it

      We’re looking for an experienced engineer who’s independent, excited about getting things done and ready to hit the ground running. You'll be responsible for building and improving the ways people pay with Wave. You'll own every step of the process—from understanding the problem, to shipping your solution for users, to helping the customer support team resolve problems. 

      Our to-do list changes constantly, but here are some recent projects:

      • Allowing people to pay their electricity bills with Wave, by integrating with Senelec, the national electrical utility.

      • Building an app for business owners to pay their employees' salaries using Wave.

      • Letting us safely lend smartphones to thousands of taxi drivers so they can accept payments with Wave, by building software to manage the phones and discourage theft.

      Key Details

      • You can work remotely from anywhere (between UTC -8 and +4) with reliable Internet access

      • Our team meets in Senegal every two months for retreats, which are one week in length. Wave covers all costs associated with travel to and from Senegal.

      • Salaries are calculated using a transparent formula. Salary for this role ranges between $120,000 to $155,000.

      Major benefits:

      • Subsidized health insurance for you and your dependents and retirement contributions (both vary from country-to-country)

      • 6 months fully paid parental leave and subsidized fertility assistance

      • Unlimited vacation with a 20-day minimum requirement

      • $10,000 annual charitable donation matching

      Requirements

      • Minimum of 4 years of professional experience as a software engineer. There's no need to have previous experience with our stack, if you are willing to learn.

      • Native or fluent English.

      You might be a good fit if you

      • Are excited to deeply understand the inner workings of the tools you use.

      • Push through hard problems without giving up.

      • Are not afraid to take on complicated systems.

      • Reflexively ask yourself, “how will this code change affect my users?”

      • Can communicate clearly with colleagues who work, speak and think differently.

      • Work to make things easier for the next engineer who will touch your code.

      • Always try to improve as a programmer and colleague.

      Our team

      We're a team of ~130 people (90 Senegalese and 40 International) who are deeply passionate about our mission of bringing great financial services to the people who need them most.

      We foster autonomy for engineers. We have no project managers—you'll learn to own your own projects at every stage, from understanding the project to monitoring your solution in production.

      We prize focus: we try to cut out all non-essential distractions so that you can spend as much time in the zone as possible. Aside from two weekly meetings—an all-hands and a one-on-one with your manager—your schedule is yours.

      We care deeply about code quality. We do thorough design and code reviews, and frequently budget time for internal code improvement projects.

      Our stack (note that we will train you on all of these—you don't need any prior experience): We have a Python 3 (+ mypy) backend, GraphQL API and Android (Kotlin) frontend, backed by a Postgres database. Our infrastructure is on GCP, managed with Kubernetes and Terraform. Learn more about engineering at Wave: https://wave.engineering/

    • Join us in our mission to make website development fun by making it simple

      We are looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to lead the team dedicated to driving Gatsby’s open source project. Join us in our mission to make website development fun by making it simple.

      About us

      Gatsby is a remote-first, community-focused team working to build a high-performance, fun to use, accessible, and astonishingly flexible presentation layer for any data source. Our core values include transparency (our work is public most of the time); creating a safe, high-trust team; building incredible developer experiences; maintaining a healthy working environment; and helping deliver web experiences that feel amazing to use on every device and connection type. 

      Details of the role

      Type of Work: Full-time employee

      Location: Remote

      Why we need you

      Gatsby is the future of the web, and the web is an incredibly diverse ecosystem. This means we need leaders who can intuitively appreciate the value that the commercial services we build offer customers. The open source team is expanding rapidly and we need someone with a deep understanding of the very cool technology, but an equally profound sense of empathy required to grow both individual contributors and future leaders in this critical part of our company.

      Why this is interesting

      Gatsby is a wildly popular open-source framework that is changing the architecture of the web. The open-source team is responsible for driving the roadmap for the large and complex codebase that is Gatsby.js. Between their own contributions and the community, they merge nearly 500 pull requests in a typical month. You’ll help lead the team in not only tackling key technological challenges, but also bolstering and focusing community contributions.

      Your responsibilities

      You will be responsible for people, projects, and processes. You will partner with your team and peers to:

      • Foster an inclusive environment through empathy, not just inside engineering, but across all the teams in Gatsby, and beyond to the open source community.

      • Wrangle many timezones and introduce remote work best practices, as you will lead a geographically diverse team.

      • Exercise good judgement in interacting with the enthusiastic community, as an exemplar for your team in this area.

      • Partner with Product and Design to find the best blend of quality, agility, and work/life sanity.

      Make sure your team is fully equipped for their job, including:

      • Context - make sure they know what is happening outside engineering

      • Vision - make sure they know what it coming next, even if we’re not there yet

      • Skills - ensure that each team member grows and feels confident in delivery

      • Tools - choose and evolve the dev environment (with the team’s input)

      • Processes - hand-in-hand with tools, make sure that we’re continuously evolving our planning and dev approach to have just enough structure to keep us on track

      • Empower your team members by offering them clear ownership of technical challenges in a world where you and other leaders are still wearing many hats and finding the ones with the best fit.

      • Collaborate with other engineering managers to evolve the management practices at Gatsby. We’re all learning more every day!

      This might be you if you….

      • Have successfully managed people, including recruiting and hiring, coaching, mentoring, evaluating, and promoting.

      • Have experience working with (and ideally contributing to, or managing) open source communities and products.

      • Have strong communication skills, verbal and written.

      • Genuinely enjoy helping people, both inside the company and out.

      • Have a consistent track record of delivering high-quality software in regular, iterative releases through coordinating a remote team.

      • Are able to coordinate and work with teams and stakeholders across the organization, and even beyond the company, including effective project management skills in an environment where you may not control many of the variables.

      • Have previous experience with React, Node.js, and GraphQL. Gatsby is built on React, Node, and GraphQL, so you should be experienced with usage and the syntax.

      • Have strong empathy and a willingness to define the nuances of team roles (including your own!) as you go.

      The best parts of this job

      • The people and culture of a team genuinely invested in building something great.

      • You’ll be helping curate one of the most popular, fastest growing open source frameworks in the world.

      • You’ll be leading a group of supportive, talented, and friendly people towards delivering a great framework and developer experience.

      • You’ll have the opportunity (even expectation) to constantly learn and innovate, in both tech approaches and process definition.

      • Your role will be key to making Gatsby the next way to build on the web—and a technology that enables the next billion internet users.

      • You will get to look back on this time as the “early, exciting days” of Gatsby. You’ll get to watch members of your team become future leaders and luminaries in a space that isn’t fully defined or formed yet.

      The worst parts of this job (maybe)

      • The community and our team aren’t always operating as equals, and don’t always have perfectly aligned motivations. Your job includes the unenviable task of helping us figure out the right focus in a variety of complex situations, and with a wide range of (understandable, but sometimes mutually exclusive) community expectations.

      • We’re all still figuring a lot of stuff out. Things can feel unstructured or messy. Part of your job is to smooth out what we collectively don’t like. And that can be hard.

      • The company is growing fast, which means lots of people wearing lots of hats, and sometimes exchanging them for new ones. Doing this while protecting a team (or individual’s) sense of ownership and security is hard. And it’s part of this job. Sorry.

      • Product and strategic direction can change. We’re building a whole new area of growth in an absolutely huge potential market. Absorbing (and/or pushing back as you see fit) that change so your team doesn’t feel unnecessary churn is also hard. And also part of this job. Still sorry.

      Benefits

      • Unlimited vacation policy, with a minimum of 15 days paid vacation time

      • Amazing health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family (US only)

      • Skip the commute with remote work

      • 3 months of paid parental leave covering both adoption and foster placement

      • Fly to cool locations 3x/year for company-wide meetups

      • Stock options in a fast-growing startup

      • Gatsby Sabbatical: 4 weeks of paid vacation after 4 years tenure

      Equal Opportunity Statement

      Gatsby is an equal opportunity employer. We eagerly seek applicants of diverse backgrounds and hire without regard to race, color, gender identity, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, physical abilities (or disability), age, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Cultivating inclusivity and diversity is a top priority.

      Headhunters and recruitment agencies may not submit resumes/CVs through this website or directly to managers. Gatsby does not accept unsolicited headhunter and agency resumes, and will not pay fees to any third-party agency or company that does not have a signed agreement with Gatsby.

      You’ll need to hit the ground running, which means the following experience will be necessary.

      • Launched products successfully as a PM in a startup environment. We’re iterating rapidly on a number of fronts, and tend to optimize for quickly getting product in the hands of users (and receiving feedback) over Platonic feature-completeness.
      • Launched successful technical products. While you won’t be directly PM-ing the developer persona, a huge part of the Gatsby experience is the Gatsby CLI and suite of related tools (GraphQL, hot reloading environment, etc). A comfort with technical details is paramount — bonus points for specific knowledge about front-end development and/or CMSs.
      • Great judgment. You will need to consistently manage tradeoffs and evaluate new ideas. These decisions often have a vast impact. As Amazon puts it, “leaders are right. A lot.”
      • Write, speak, and think clearly. Gatsby is a distributed company and relies heavily on crisp and thorough writing. Your ability to get the right feedback and align the company will rely heavily on thoughtful synthesis of internal and external conversations and strategic planning into product documents, and clear communication to all stakeholders.
      • Leverage metrics to focus on value. You have experience using data and metrics to back up assumptions and assertions of business value. You also leverage your strong analytical skills and ability to dive deep to develop a nuanced understanding of your product and customers, and to create effective strategies.
      • Comfortable owning entire products. You will be managing Gatsby’s commercial product. As a product-driven company, a large proportion of whether we hit our annual revenue targets will be whether we’re able to ship enough value to our company.
      • High level of curiosity. The web is an incredibly diverse place with a huge number of different communities. You’re fascinated to learn about the challenges, workflows, and hopes and dreams of a wide variety of people.
      • Trustworthy. A great product manager is trusted deeply by the engineering team. Tech leads and engineering ICs feel comfortable DM-ing their product manager at any time when they run across product questions in their day-to-day work, because they can count on getting accurate, thoughtful, helpful context.
      The best parts of this job
      • Your role will be key to making Gatsby the next way to build on the web—and a technology that enables the next billion internet users. ‘Nuff said.
      • You will lead the production of one of the most highly-anticipated products in the web development space. Freelance developers and enterprise companies alike are eagerly awaiting the launch of Gatsby Cloud---and you will lead it.
      • You will have an opportunity to play a huge leadership role in a high-profile, growing company. Next to the CEO, this is perhaps the most cross-functional role in the entire Gatsby organization. You’ll have the chance to influence the work of almost everyone in the company.
      • You get to interact with an active, open, friendly community of developers that are really excited about building high-performance, fun-to-use websites. Their energy is often infectious, and you will leave conversations with them even more excited about Gatsby.
      The worst parts of this job
      • Product and strategic direction can change. We’re building a whole new area of growth in an absolutely huge potential market. If we’re not changing directions relatively quickly, that would be surprising.
      • You will need to ruthlessly prioritize your workflow. Because our user audience is so diverse, there’s a huge amount of potential things to do at any time. You’ll need to be comfortable with thoughtfully choosing where to focus and communicating that.
      • Stakeholders are dispersed far and wide. The largest clustering of people in one place is 5 folks in our Berkeley office. We have a strong sense of identity and are very close, but if in-person interactions with a large number of people is important to you then this may not be a good fit.
      Benefits
      • Unlimited vacation policy, with a minimum of 15 days paid vacation time
      • Skip the commute with remote work
      • Stock options in a fast-growing startup
      • Amazing health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family (US only)
      • 3 months of paid parental leave covering both adoption and foster placement
      • Fly to cool locations 3x/year for company-wide meetups
      • Gatsby Sabbatical: 4 weeks paid vacation after 4 years tenure
