You are someone who loves building software that people genuinely love using. You want to make things that excite people, that add joy to their daily lives. And you want to do it with people who are working towards a common goal and see your success as their success. You will be joining a team that values getting things done, helping others get things done, and building towards an amazing future.
Our customers are Designers and Engineers who care about the details; the small stuff. Every bit of the customer experience is important and we’re not just talking about features.
