    • About the company:

      MondayVC is a quickly scaling start-up building white-label job boards and talent networks for venture capital funds and startup accelerators across the world. Customers use our platform to save time when making high-value introductions between portfolio companies and professionals in their networks.

      As a remote company operating from 7 countries, we understand remote work and are constantly investing in our team by encouraging autonomy, clear communication, and discipline.

      We’ve recently closed our seed round and are prepared to scale our offering with current customers as we develop new products. 

      The Role:

      We’re looking for a senior full-stack product engineer to join our early-stage, quickly-scaling team. You will make impactful product features a reality across a variety of product verticals in collaboration with product managers, designers, and our Chief Product Officer. 

      Responsibilities:

      • Work with autonomy on large projects critical to our roadmap, executing toward simple, effective solutions
      • Build fast prototypes that help us validate our assumptions
      • Develop and define the backend and frontend architecture
      • Improve performance, reliability, scalability and security for our systems
      • Be involved in transitioning our monolithic codebase to a microservice-based architecture

      • A tenacious problem-solver; you hold your performance to a high bar and are motivated to consistently work towards stretch goals; you’re resourceful and not offset or discouraged by unforeseen challenges.
      • Detail-oriented; you see the typos in an email even if you try not to. When testing code, often you spot bugs by simply looking at the code without making it run.
      • A team player; you manage priorities effectively with a keen awareness toward how your work can support the team; you naturally break down silos with proactive communication
      • Someone who takes ownership; you like to take ownership for the projects you are leading and do whatever it takes to make sure those projects are successful.
      • Receptive to feedback from clients and team members and take ownership to implement improvements you believe are necessary.
      • Transparent with your process and proactively give feedback to other team members when you have it.

    • Heap (North American timezones)
      2 weeks ago

      As a product engineer at Heap, you’ll build the products that make user behavior useful for everyone.

      We have a unique approach to understanding user behavior: capture all the data. This allows people to use Heap who were previously shut out from using analytics at all, so one of the core challenges of the Heap product is building a general-purpose interface that's flexible for power users but still immediately accessible for the masses.

      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 product management, design, customers, and support engineers to decide how to build features.

      Our front-end stack is TypeScript, React and MobX (read more about how we write code, and how we migrated off of Backbone), 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.

      What you’ll work on

      • Building new core analysis features. In his second summer at Heap as an intern, Alex added a huge suite of features to all of our analysis modules.

      • Building tools to help customers manage the vast amount of data Heap capture. Even if you’re non-technical, organizing data from your website is as easy as clicking around your site.

      • Much more!

       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 NEA, Y Combinator, Menlo Ventures, SVAngel, Sam Altman, Garry Tan, Alexis Ohanian, Harj Taggar, Ram Shriram, and others.

      At Medium, words still matter. We are building a place to foster reading and writing on the internet—a place where today’s smartest writers, thinkers authorities, experts, and storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.

      The Platforms team
      The Platforms team is tasked with enabling our product engineers to quickly build a quality user experience. We do that by giving those teams tools and frameworks to build great user experiences.
      Much of the Platforms team's recent work has been around shepherding new technologies into Medium's stack: We have a web client written in modern React (with hooks, if you're curious) and TypeScript. We have enjoyed adopting GraphQL to add clarity to our API, manage changing client needs, and take advantage of third party tooling like Apollo Client. We have a modern design system & styling framework using CSS-in-JS & Storybook. And we are growing our fleet of Go services speaking gRPC, deployed on Kubernetes, and released with our own K8s operator.

      That's where you come in:
      We're looking for Staff- or Principal-leveled engineers who like to:
      Write software — That might be writing a new framework, making a design system component accessible, or writing a Slack integration that saves engineers time.
      Support fellow engineers — We listen to product engineering teams and collaborate with them. After all, they're our users, and they're the ones who ultimately help Medium's users read and write things that matter. When we empathetically understand what they need, it makes us better at our job.
      Advocate for & design solutions — We provide high-level technical design, strategy roadmap development, and technical architecture related to our web client.
      Follow & engage with the community — We want to assure that our architectures are consistent with industry including scalability, availability, maintainability, and flexibility.
      Understand technical debt — There are also some older and less glamorous technologies at Medium, too. Part of your responsibility will be enabling engineers to account for technical debt and make progress against it — all while building new systems and user features.

      WHO ARE YOU?
      • You have a deep understanding of Javascript, the DOM, CSS, and the ecosystem of tools around them.
      • You are an expert in at least one modern web application framework (React, Angular, Vue, etc.)
      • You have 5+ years of experience writing software.
      • You want to learn from and teach your peers.
      • You work autonomously, are energized by missions and goals more than a specific list of tasks.


      Nice, but not required:
      • You have 10+ years of experience.
      • You understand web accessibility and have shipped accessible products.
      • You have an understanding of React's internals.
      • You have experience on an infrastructural or platform team.
      What makes Medium special
      At Medium, we foster an inclusive, supportive, fun yet challenging team environment. We value having a team that is made up of a diverse set of backgrounds and respect the healthy expression of diverse opinions. We embrace experimentation and the examination of all kinds of ideas through reasoning and testing. Come join us as we continue to change the world of digital media.
      Medium is an equal opportunity employer. We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment. Please contact us to request accommodation.
