Engineering at Fanhouse, Inc

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team is very small (<5 people). We move very fast and operate on weekly cycles, starting with a Preview where we prioritize features and things to do throughout the week. We then check in daily via Syncs, 15-minute all-hands where each person talks about what they've done/will do that day (our team is distributed across time zones). We end the week with Review, where the team discusses dynamics and reviews the work we've done.

Technical Challenges

Engineers are not just designing a platform, you're also in the weeds about designing for social norms: millions of people reach our website, and getting them in the community and acting in pro-social ways require nudges in the right direction and designing features around community. This social systems design is unique, and just as integral to us as designing functional code that has to be secure and fast for millions.

Projects you might work on
  • Design the social features such as a public versus a private wall to help creators manage and build their community on the platform.

  • Build a cross-platform app using Flutter/Dart from scratch

  • Building a secure payments backend to handle mass volumes of transactions every day.

Diversity and Inclusion

We look for candidates who are willing to accept, accommodate, and appreciate others' differences, and we look for them because as founders, that is what we do with each other.
