The primary responsibilities for the role include architecting the frontend of Sourcetable’s spreadsheet application, and generally contributing to feature development (hands on keyboard). As an early employee you will be responsible for key parts of the engineering stack and directly involved in early engineering and product decisions.

The role requires creative implementation of specifications while working closely with Sourcetable’s CTO and the rest of the team to ensure awesome outcomes. Sourcetable is an environment where developers can write clean, encapsulated and tested code that results in great products.

We’re looking for engineers who bring new processes and ideas to the organization and can use open source and cloud technologies to solve technical challenges. Sourcetable’s mission is to make data accessible to everyone. We believe great user experience starts at the architectural level.

Sourcetable is a networked spreadsheet that makes it easy to connect, sync and query your data, without needing to know how to code.

Our users are typically non-technical knowledge workers (growth, operations, finance, marketing) who are doing analysis work in spreadsheets. They need to model data and do data mashups from a variety of sources (SaaS tools, Databases and APIs), and have those models update automatically.

They need solutions that are more dynamic, more networked, and more collaborative than present solutions on the market. They need Sourcetable.

Company Culture

We place a strong emphasis on shipping. If it doesn't ship then we haven't learned anything, and the faster we can learn the better. Customer service is important to us, as is a focus on building a business and solving people's real-world problems.

Everyone on the team has worked at multiple startups, so it's a big plus if you have experience working at an early stage startup (<20ppl).
