Our workforce management platform helps some of the fastest-growing, most innovative companies in the world—including Stripe, Zoom, and Robinhood—to schedule, forecast, and organize their support teams. We’ve raised $70m in funding from the likes of NEA, Emergence Capital, and Stripe itself.

The Team

We’re looking to add a Frontend engineer who’s been an early hire before and thrives in ambiguity.

  • Pioneer new features: Build exceptional features that customers rave about, closely following principles that lead to startup success.
  • Deeply embed with users: Work directly with our users to understand how they’re using our new product and use this knowledge to influence our roadmap.
  • Wear many hats: Whether coding, talking to users, planning, brainstorming, interviewing teammates, or collaborating with various teams, be ready to embrace diverse challenges.
  • Influence the product roadmap: Collaborate with the rest of the team to shape and execute the product strategy. Your insights and expertise will be key in identifying opportunities and setting the direction that aligns with our team’s vision.
  • Shape the Culture: Foster a startup mindset within the team, characterized by optimism, product obsession, and a bias toward action.
