Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: North America

Category: Software Dev

As a growth engineer at Heap, you’ll be iterating on our core product to help drive activation, conversion, and retention/expansion. Heap is growing quickly, and to keep that pace we need to build applications and services that allow us to scale the effectiveness of our people. Your goal is to make changes to the product to increase revenue, improve our sales motion, and make it easier for the business to manage customers.

You’ll be on a multidisciplinary team that owns the full stack from the interface to the analytical query engine. You’ll work closely with web engineers, product management and solutions engineers to decide how to build features.

Our stack is built in JS and Postgres. Your work will be built with both, but will occasionally extend to frontend applications built in TypeScript and React. Familiarity with these tools is appreciated, but your creativity and intelligence are much more important to us than knowledge of our tools.

What we're looking for

  • We’d particularly like to get to know you if:

  • you communicate with clarity and precision. We care about this almost as much as your technical ability.

  • you're passionate, even if it's not about analytics. There should be something you know more about than anyone on our team.

  • you’ve written 10,000 lines of code that look embarrassing in retrospect. ... and you've written 10,000 lines of good code since then.

  • you like fruit, sunshine, and bad jokes. We aren't robots.

Our office is in San Francisco, but we have engineers around the world. For the product engineering team, we are open to remote engineers in North American timezones. We'd love to hear from you! 

Heap has raised $95M in funding from NewView Capital, NEA, Y Combinator, Menlo Ventures, SVAngel, Sam Altman, Garry Tan, Alexis Ohanian, Harj Taggar, Ram Shriram, and others.

Please mention that you come from Remotive when applying for this job.
