This is full-time role for a remote, US-based employee.
We are a venture-backed startup founded in January 2020 that is building the future of digital communications on top of the world's most ubiquitous messaging platform — email. We're on a mission to ensure that everyone has access to high quality, decentralized, and secure messaging.
We have an experienced team distributed across the US, with almost half of our team located in California. Our CEO Andrew formerly cofounded Firebase (later acquired by Google), and much of our early team met Andrew while working there building the infrastructure behind millions of today's mobile and web apps.
Our first product is a brand new inbox experience for Gmail that keeps your inbox organized by default. We believe that email should prioritize people, not advertising, getting through your inbox shouldn't require busywork, and sending an email should be as fast as typing a text message. Our product is currently in pre-launch testing with a select group of alpha users.
We're well-funded by top-tier investors including Union Square Ventures & Lightspeed Venture Partners.
In this role, you'll help us build the APIs and infrastructure that power Shortwave.
We're looking for a smart, generalist backend developer with strong CS fundamentals who loves to write and ship code fast.
We're looking to hire the best and brightest and are trying hard to provide the best work environment around.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, help us understand what makes you unique and extraordinary, and why you're excited about Shortwave. Also include a resume or a link to your LinkedIn, as well as links to anything you've built online that you'd like to share with us (GitHub, Dribbble, personal website, etc.).
We're looking for team members who have passion, grit, and integrity. Even if your experience doesn't precisely match the criteria above, please consider applying.
