Engineering at Openbase

Engineering team and processes

We are currently hiring Frontend, Backend, and Full Stack Engineers who will be a part of the core team and have the opportunity to make a great impact on the product and roadmap.

You'll be an essential part of building the engineering process and culture - what tech stack we use, how we test or deploy, and 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 company'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
