  • Build internal tools to empower all of engineering and design to create accessible features
You Have:
  • Familiarity with web (React, TypeScript), iOS (React Native, Objective-C, Swift), or Android (Kotlin, RxJava) development. We're a cross-platform team and believe that engineers should be empowered to work across a variety of tech stacks. The stacks you don't know, we'll teach you!
  • Experience building, shipping, and iterating on product features 
  • Experience balance speed and quality to ship high impact products
  • Experience advocating for and talking to real users

  • 401(K) plans
  • Catered lunches Monday-Friday and a fully-stocked kitchen (snacks and beverages galore!)
  • Regular company and team social events such as game nights, happy hours and events
  • An annual desk fund to make your space truly yours
