Role Description

Sym is seeking a founding Full-Stack Engineer to help build out the first version of our React UI and Rails API.

Some things about you that might make this a great role for you:

  • You’ve had success working full-stack on other web (React) and mobile (React Native) applications.
  • You know modern front and backend tooling and build pipelines.
  • You like building both systems, and the tools to support those systems—no handing things over the wall to an ops team for you!
  • You are comfortable with AWS and have dabbled with GCP or Azure.
  • You are an advocate for your users. You make sure the software you deliver doesn’t just check the boxes, but improves end user - experience.
  • You like the idea of joining an early team where you can influence product direction and company strategy.
  • You believe in choosing the right tool for the job, and some of the tools in your toolbox include Typescript (or Flow!), Ruby, and - Python.

What you’ll be doing in the first six months:

  • Building the web application Sym admins use to manage integrations and reporting.
  • Creating APIs and integrations to support the Sym developer SDK.
  • Making lots of technical decisions about what tools and libraries to use for V1.
  • Talking to customers and prospects including supporting them on Slack.

About Sym

Sym empowers engineers to create the perfect security and privacy workflows for their teams. The Sym Platform turns tedious, manual compliance processes into executable workflow definitions that are managed as code.

Today, companies in high-compliance spaces (like healthcare) face a really difficult choice when rolling out security and privacy workflows: they can spend a ton of ⏰ & 💰 on building streamlined internal tools, or they can use off-the-shelf tools which slow their teams down. Enter Sym. We provide workflow templates and a large set of integrations to give companies the benefit of custom tooling, without them having to build or maintain anything.

We're backed by some of the best investors in infrastructure and security, and have super cool angels, like the founders of Bugsnag, LaunchDarkly, and DocSend.

Company Culture

We’re a team of developers, engineering leaders, repeat founders, and nerds passionate about security & compliance. We’ve spent our careers helping the teams we support navigate complex regulatory landscapes, and think it’s time to solve this problem for everyone!

We care deeply about building a workforce and culture that is inclusive and equitable for people of all backgrounds and experiences. Because of this, we particularly encourage people from communities that tend to be underrepresented to apply, including women, people of color, and LGBTQ people.

As a team, we’re excited to help companies up their security and privacy game, without getting in their way. If you find this rapidly-growing space important and exciting, we can’t wait to hear from you! We also want you to know that you can be a great candidate even if you don't perfectly fit the mold we describe below… and you can have important skills we haven't even thought of yet. If that's you, don't hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.
