Engineering team and processes

We're just hiring our first engineers, so you'll be part of the core team and have a lot of impact. You'll be an essential part of building the engineering process and culture - what tech stack we use, how we test or deploy, how we work together. You won't have a technical manager, and will work directly with the CEO - brainstorming, testing and figuring out the best ways to achieve the startup's goals.

Build the world's largest knowledgebase for 3 million open-source packages, with hundreds of millions of data points, updated and analyzed in real-time.

Projects you might work on
  • Define and build the entire tech stack and infrastructure of the startup from scratch, based on best-of-breed technologies

  • Create a website that serves millions of developers, helping them choose, learn and use open-source packages

  • Build and work with a database of 3 million open-source packages, and hundreds of millions of data points, while analyzing the data, deriving insights, and visualizing the package data to users
