This is full-time role for a remote, US-based employee.
We're a venture-backed startup building the future of digital communications on top of the world's most ubiquitous messaging platform — email. 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 first product, a brand new inbox experience for Gmail, launched in February 2022. The Verge called it "The Google Inbox successor I've been waiting for".
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 our early team met Andrew while working there building the infrastructure behind millions of today's mobile and web apps.
We're well-funded by top-tier investors including Union Square Ventures & Lightspeed Venture Partners.
In this role, you'll help us build and ship new features and improve the quality of our application by contributing across our entire stack.
We're looking for a smart, generalist developer with strong CS fundamentals who's able to learn and adapt quickly to solve problems wherever they are in our code.
We're looking to hire the best and brightest, so we strive to provide the best work environment—tailored to you.
Please email us at email@example.com. 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.
