Engineering at DocSend

Engineering team and processes

DocSend's engineering team structure is fairly flat. We are a diverse group of people who work collaboratively on interesting problems while keeping the codebase convenient and enjoyable to work with. We work on one-week cycles that begin with a group planning meeting where we discuss and estimate what's coming up; and ends with a retrospective meeting (for the regex lovers out there, the actual meeting name is "(?

Technical Challenges

One of our challenges involves turning complex concepts into simple, usable features. In some cases, we're having to capture thousands of visits per document or hundreds of visits per team member in a single notification or entry in a list. This type of challenge requires a strong understanding of what the user needs and a bit of technical creativity in order to architect the right solution.

A lot of those features are released in phases, which is another interesting challenge we regularly encounter. This starts with designing zero-downtime database migrations. It often ends with internal releases that are rolled out to our company's DocSend accounts, then a public release. Every project is similar and different in its own way, and we do all this while maintaining high uptime and reliability for our users throughout the entire feature development process.

Projects you might work on
  • Work on our E-signature feature, transforming legal research and requirements into a usable flow that produces legally binding electronic signatures for some of our highest-value customers.

  • Work with design, product, and marketing on improving our user onboarding experience using data on user behavior in order to directly affect user activation, conversion, and retention.

  • Work on our document processing system on AWS Lambda and DynamoDB, designing (and hoping with the right TLC) that it will scale infinitely.
