Role Description

Why Shiftsmart

At Shiftsmart, we’re building the future of labor. Our platform powers the modern workforce with over 800,000 workers in 50+ countries, and customers that include Google, Deloitte, McDonald’s, and Facebook. We’ve grown our business 2-3x each year since we started, with over 1M shifts worked and $60M in wages paid to workers. We empower hourly workers to find more work, increase their earnings, and control their own schedules, while also enabling employers to increase fulfillment, reduce turnover, and improve quality.

🚀 Join a rocketship. This is a unique opportunity to join a rapidly scaling business where we expect you to approach things differently, and beyond what might be considered ‘normal’ elsewhere.

🙋 Be an owner. Join a team who are growing this business as their own, and are inspired by the idea of reducing unemployment in every market we touch.

💡 Captain your career path. Live, work, and breathe in an environment with limitless opportunities for growth, both professionally and personally.

💯 Become a world class executor. We believe that #ExecutionIsBinary, and are dedicated to helping you master that skill for life here and beyond.

Role overview

The mission of our Engineering team is to build the platform to continue scaling our business to $100M revenue and beyond. Changing the world isn’t easy, and we have a lot of work ahead of us. From developing new user-facing products, to building infrastructure tools, to delivering automation, to creating and supporting microservices, we envision, architect, and code the technical infrastructure that enables our business. In this role you own either a vertical pillar or horizontal function within our Product & Engineering team, driving the technical vision, providing technical leadership to other engineers, and influencing product strategy.

What you’ll do:

  • Partner with leadership, product managers, and other engineers to own, design, and build products across a modern tech stack (note: we currently use Node.js, React/React Native, MondoDB, and GCP).
  • Lead end-to-end complex technical projects from ideation and design all the way through production.
  • Conduct regular technical design and code reviews to improve the resilience and maintenance of our code base.
  • Contribute to our engineering practices, tools, and culture to raise the standard for the entire team.
  • Serve as a mentor and coach for more junior developers on the team.
  • Interview other engineers to scale our rapidly growing team.

Who you are

  • You get excited about solving complex business problems using technology, and enjoy cutting code yourself while also mentoring and coaching others.
  • Code ninja - You have 5-7+ years experience with JavaScript (Node.js and/or React), and ideally in high growth startups. We’re hiring across full stack, front-end, and back-end developers.
  • Mission-oriented - You’re committed to our mission and empowering workers with technology.
  • Problem solver - You’re passionate about solving business problems for users with technology.
  • Organized - You enjoy leading and executing the development roadmap for complex software projects. * Self-starter - You’re ready to experience the chaos of an early stage startup, and have a proven ability to roll up your sleeves to #GetShiftDone.
  • Communicator - You are clear and concise in explaining your thought process, and in enumerating the trade-offs made in your work.
  • Multi-tasker - You’re able to set priorities while remaining flexible in an ever-changing environment.

Company Culture

We constantly invent, measure, and iterate. We do things that don’t scale. We reject the phrase “That is how it’s always been done” and don’t let perfect get in the way of better.

Our vision is ambitious: we’re building technology that is going to change the way people all over the world think about work. It’s exciting (and sometimes a little stressful) but working at Shiftsmart means building something with a real-world impact!
