Senior Software Engineer

Remote applicants must be located in the continental US and have existing US work authorization. No applicants from CA, WA or NY.

Spreedly is an API based payments company headquartered in Durham, NC. We are a stable, growth stage start up with a team that enjoys working together and is remote friendly and inclusive. Our culture is based around our dedication to a meaningful work/life balance, and our commitment to that is reflected in the way we've structured the company, as well as the benefits and perks that we offer employees.

Our list of "amazing functionality that customers will happily pay us for if we can just get it implemented..." is growing faster than we can check things off, and we need help from an experienced engineer that can hop into a high-functioning, experienced team and start learning and contributing quickly.

When you start at Spreedly (think first 6-12 months), you'll be spending 90%+ of your time working right on the product team building functionality for customers. Building product at Spreedly is a bit unique in that our main product is a payments API used by other developers. So "designing a UI" often means thinking through how YOU would want a given API to work if you were using it, and "adding a feature for a customer" often means working through how to securely enable a developer to do something interesting with a credit card number. Super challenging and fun, we think! And since we work with credit card data on a daily basis, thinking about security is a way of life at Spreedly, as is building sustainable processes to keep that information safe (and our auditors happy).

What we're looking for in a senior engineer is somebody who's excited by jumping into pretty complex technical problems and making sense of them. We regularly deal with encryption, encoding, and security, all within the context of a distributed system. You don't have to be an expert in any of those aspects, but you should be really open to learning about them. Once you've gotten your feet under you and understand the domain well enough, we envision you being the technical lead for one aspect of our service. In particular, this means we'd like you to mentor junior engineers and help them tackle the task at hand using pragmatic software practices. We're looking for people that are good at their job who are also are interested in elevating the people around them.

What We're Looking For

  • A track record of delivering well-crafted software
  • A willingness to be a generalist and the curiosity to try new things you've never done before
  • Excitement about building products for Spreedly's customers, who are primarily businesses doing commerce and their developers who are using our API's and toolkits
  • Excellent written communication skills, and a willingness to use them to document your work as necessary
  • The ability to operate autonomously, sorting your own immediate priorities out of the ever-shifting needs of a startup environment
  • Confidence in your ability to learn new tech as necessary. Today we work primarily with Ruby, Rails, Elixir, Phoenix, Riak, Kafka, Postgres, Redis, and Linux ... but are always pragmatically evaluating new languages and tools

What We Offer

  • Competitive salary + equity package
  • Outstanding medical and dental benefits (we pay 100% of monthly premiums for employees + families)
  • Open PTO policy
  • Tues./Thurs. in-office days- the rest of the week employees are free to work wherever they choose
  • Paid lunches on in-office days
  • 12 weeks paid family leave for all employees
  • Company sponsored 401k
  • Yearly paid professional development

We are open to remote candidates, with the caveat that you must be located in the continental US (the whole team gets together at our Durham office once a quarter). Most of our technical team is in the RDU area and works out of our office in downtown Durham, NC two days a week, and from wherever we fancy the other three days a week. We also have ~20% of our team already remote. So, although we're pretty aware of what it takes to support remote employees, if you are remote we'd like for you to have had some experience working that way.

We're constantly striving to have the fairest and most productive hiring process possible. We want to ensure that every candidate is treated equally and our interactions are designed with that goal in mind. If you want to get a sense for what your application process will look like, we'd encourage you to read the following: Stop Hazing Your Potential Hires and Programming Puzzles Are Not the Answer.

If this at all sounds interesting, we'd love to hear from you!

Spreedly is an equal opportunity employer that values a diverse culture as it’s an accurate reflection of the larger community and world in which we live. We actively work to drive out even unintentional discrimination in our hiring processes via practices like blindly graded work samples and structured interviews.

Due to the sensitive nature of what Spreedly does- handling payment data- candidates must complete a successful background check. If you have concerns along those lines, please discuss with us sooner rather than later- we do not want you to waste time in the hiring process and get disqualified at the end if we can help it.

Senior Javascript Developer

Who are we?


We're an InsureTech startup founded in May 2017 and have developed a suite of working & tested applications focused on automating and processing claims.

Have you ever had to claim on your car insurance policy, or perhaps travel insurance? How long did it take? How many bureaucratic hurdles did you need to tackle? How much did you have to pay out-of-pocket? Our suite of apps helps to mitigate all of these scenarios; it spares customers of hefty out-of-pocket payments, visits to branches, and from all the paperwork usually involved.

Do you see the opportunity? We certainly can - and we're not the only ones! Due to ever-increasing interest in our solution we are looking for top notch developers to help us scale-up by building out our core systems. We plan to onboard our first customers this year so it is a super interesting time to join.

Why should you work for us?

Our product is solving an important real-world problem that is widely recognised by insurance companies and their customers. We have a unique opportunity to completely revolutionise an industry currently dominated by large corporations.

We are a cosy team with a high-level of experience in both insurance and technology. We operate with a horizontal structure; everyone, whether a developer or the CEO, is invited to help mould the product & strategy. We strongly believe in the freedom of work. That's not just a fancy declaration - we really do work from anywhere. As long as you are able to work in an asynchronous environment, all we ask is that you deliver what you promise. We won't insist on you being chained to a desk or a particular location.

We pay market rates depending on experience and skillset.

What tools and methods do we use?

  • Latest versions of Angular for frontend apps, and Ionic for hybrid mobile apps.
  • Node.js and Restify for API gateways and simple microservices.
  • Test-driven and behaviour-driven (Gherkin syntax) development patterns.
  • Continuous integration and delivery using CircleCI.
  • Docker both for development and production (Amazon ECS).
  • Our preferred project management method is Kanban (Trello).
  • Our preferred communication tool is Slack.

Why should we hire you?

  • You can hit the ground running and develop maintainable code from day one.
  • You have a deep knowledge of core Javascript and you can write Typescript with your eyes closed (well, almost).
  • You have proven experience in building both large single-page frontend applications and server-side Express/Restify applications.
  • You have a good eye for interfaces. You don't need to be a Photoshop pro but you should be able to create user-friendly pages & components using HTML & CSS (SASS).
  • Your familiarity with CircleCI or other CI tools enables you to debug and fix pipelines.
  • You are able to work in an unstructured start-up environment. You escalate problems whenever you are stuck and also voice your opinions when needed, ultimately enabling us to innovate faster.
  • Your proactive and transparent approach will save us from any major hiccups, since you solve problems before they ever reach the client.

What if I don't have all the skills mentioned?

No worries, we will still consider candidates who can tick the majority of boxes.

How should I apply?

Send us an email with your resume and explain your motivation. Please include all relevant links – mainly LinkedIn, your website/blog, GitHub, Stack Overflow, or similar.

We will take a look at your profile and arrange a short Skype call - just a friendly conversation to get to know each other. No typical HR questions. Part of the call will be dedicated to discussion about your experience, and about your approach to solving technical challenges. We will ask you some questions that will test your level of understanding of the topics covered.

We don't believe in whiteboard exercises, but we will still give you a quick technical assignment. We want to see your thought process and your experience with solving challenges from complex problem domains.

Product Manager

What We Do

Overleaf is a startup and social enterprise that builds modern collaborative authoring tools for scientists — like Google Docs for Science. We have over three million registered users from around the world. Our primary product is an online, real time collaborative editor for papers, theses, technical reports and other documents written in the LaTeX markup language.

Who We Are

Overleaf was founded by two mathematicians who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for scientific collaboration and communication. Now we are a team of thirty based mainly in and around the UK and in the US. We were recognised as one of the UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses in 2018.

In September 2018, we officially launched 'Overleaf v2', the latest version of our platform, which we've been working on since our acquisition of ShareLaTeX, the other major online LaTeX editor, in 2017. We've now integrated the two products and teams.

How We Work

Overleaf is remote-first — all founders and staff work remotely. We also have an office by King's Cross station for those in the London area, and we get the whole team together in London several times a year for face-to-face time.

We encourage flexible working. Our core hours are 2pm–5pm UK time, during which we have a 10–15 minute daily standup call for the whole development team. We have few standing meetings for the development team, but we do many smaller video or voice calls for pairing or within project groups.

We don't yet have standing teams, but we form and dissolve smaller teams on a per-project basis; we try to give everyone the opportunity to serve as a team lead if they want to.

We always collect user feedback to inform our work. We have UX professionals on our team, and we run many surveys and user interviews.

We organise our work with Kanban. We use GitHub pull requests for each feature with code review to share knowledge and best practices (and catch bugs). We test thoroughly with automated unit and acceptance tests, supported by continuous integration (CI). We're also fans of linting to minimise bikeshedding (and to catch bugs).

About This Role

This is a broad role, which you will be able to shape as the business grows, but in the short term we will ask you to:

  • Work closely with the development team as a product owner throughout the development process:
  • Take the lead in product and feature design, representing the needs of the user and other stakeholders to the engineering team,
  • Work with the engineering team to make sure that we are taking an approach which maximises the value to the user, while minimising technical complexity,
  • Prioritise tickets in bi-weekly sprint planning sessions to make sure we are regularly delivering small improvements, rather than only focusing on big feature releases,
  • Monitor the impact of new features and releases, to determine if they achieved the goals set out for them at the start.
  • Work closely with internal teams (sales & marketing, support, business) to:
    • Understand the users they engage with and the problems, pain points and requests they are seeing,
    • Clearly communicate our roadmap and product changes in advance of their launch,
    • Run early rounds of internal feedback gathering, before we launch to users,
    • Understand how our internal tooling can be improved for internal users
    • Work closely with our UX team to:
    • Develop strategies for regularly monitoring and collecting user feedback,
    • Formulate hypotheses which we can answer with user feedback and testing.
  • Work closely with our CTO and CEO to:
    • Plan out the longer term product roadmap
    • Understand the high level company vision and goals, and make sure these are reflected in ongoing product development

    As a recent example of a project which required many of these roles was the development of the Overleaf v2 git bridge:

    • We designed and ran a survey to assess which workflows were important to users in Overleaf v2, and then a follow on survey and user interviews after an initial beta launch. One of the outcomes of this was a reversal of a decision to remove git bridge, once we understood how crucial it was to many users' workflows.
    • Implementing the git bridge in Overleaf was a complex technical challenge, where different engineering choices would have different impacts to the user's workflow, and vice-versa. Effectively bringing together the engineering team, user feedback, and product vision was important in finding the best solution.
    • We rolled out the git bridge slowly to a beta cohort of users, to assess feedback and catch any usability problems early.
    • Keeping the support team up to date so they could communicate the situation to users, and let interested users into the beta program was important.
    • Giving the sales and marketing team reasonable estimates that they could communicate back to clients was important.
    • We are conducting another large scale survey and round of follow up feedback on the launch of Overleaf v2, and part of the focus of this will be on learning how the git bridge is now perceived and used.

    As a product manager, you would have been involved in leadership, product decisions and coordination between teams that went into the above process.

    Here are some examples of other projects we've recently completed:

    This year, we have many projects planned including Single Sign On for our many university clients, improvements to our rich text mode, Dropbox sync, B2C conversion funnel, and much more.

    Personal traits

    • A strong intuition for what makes products a joy to use,
    • Empathy for how different users will need different things out of a product at different stages, and how to effectively serve these different needs in one product,
    • Strong communication and mediation skills,
    • A technical enough background to understand how the user facing product will tie into backend and architectural decisions.

    How We Hire

    The stages in our hiring process are typically:

    1. We will aim to update you on the status of your application within one week from when we receive it.
    2. We'll follow up by email (or sometimes schedule a phone call) with any questions we have about your application, usually around logistics, your ambitions and your expectations about the role.
    3. We'll schedule a more in-depth interview, which is typically two hours long. The first hour is discussion, and the second hour is practical. For the practical, you'll have the option of either completing a homework assignment, which requires about one hour of your time before the interview, or doing an exercise during the interview, if you prefer. The exercises are practical in nature, and you can use Google, etc., and ask us questions.
    4. We'll make an offer. We usually interview in batches, so there may be a short delay while we interview other candidates, but we will try to keep you informed throughout the process.
    If you have a deadline, please let us know in your application, and we will try to be accommodating.

    Requirements

    We require that you:

    • have a minimum of 2–3 years of relevant experience (we aren't taking on more new graduates at the moment).
    • will work for us full time (or nearly full time).
    • will usually be available in our core hours, 2pm–5pm UK time.

    Benefits

    • Remote and flexible working.
    • Salary £40k–£75k per year depending on experience.
    • You would join a small, dedicated and growing team.
    • We're substantially (around 80%) open source, so your work will often be on open source.
    • We're backed by Bethnal Green Ventures (https://bethnalgreenventures.com/) and Digital Science (https://www.digital-science.com/), through which we're part of a wider community of startups in science, health and ed-tech.
    • Our London office is shared with several other Digital Science companies, so there's lots of interesting people to meet, and clubs and sports activities outside of work.
    • You can pick your own equipment. MacBook Pro? Lenovo ThinkPad? Notebook and pen? However you like to work, we'll provide what you need.
    • We provide a training budget; many of our staff choose to attend relevant industry conferences or buy training materials.
    • We run a biweekly internal seminar series (show and tell) with short talks from staff about their work or personal projects, new technologies and techniques.
    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

    • Overleaf

    Engineering Manager

    What We Do

    Overleaf is a startup and social enterprise that builds modern collaborative authoring tools for scientists — like Google Docs for Science. We have over three million registered users from around the world. Our primary product is an online, real time collaborative editor for papers, theses, technical reports and other documents written in the LaTeX markup language.

    Who We Are

    Overleaf was founded by two mathematicians who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for scientific collaboration and communication. Now we are a team of thirty based mainly in and around the UK and in the US. We were recognised as one of the UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses in 2018.

    In September 2018, we officially launched 'Overleaf v2', the latest version of our platform, which we've been working on since our acquisition of ShareLaTeX, the other major online LaTeX editor, in 2017. We've now integrated the two products and teams.

    How We Work

    Overleaf is remote-first — all founders and staff work remotely. We also have an office by King's Cross station for those in the London area, and we get the whole team together in London several times a year for face-to-face time.

    We encourage flexible working. Our core hours are 2pm–5pm UK time, during which we have a 10–15 minute daily standup call for the whole development team. We have few standing meetings for the development team, but we do many smaller video or voice calls for pairing or within project groups.

    We don't yet have standing teams, but we form and dissolve smaller teams on a per-project basis; we try to give everyone the opportunity to serve as a team lead if they want to.

    We always collect user feedback to inform our work. We have UX professionals on our team, and we run many surveys and user interviews.

    We organise our work with Kanban. We use GitHub pull requests for each feature with code review to share knowledge and best practices (and catch bugs). We test thoroughly with automated unit and acceptance tests, supported by continuous integration (CI). We're also fans of linting to minimise bikeshedding (and to catch bugs).

    About This Role

    This is a broad role, which you will be able to shape as the business grows, but in the short term we will ask you to:

    • Own process at the level of the whole engineering team, now 17 people, including leading retrospectives and ensuring that teams are working well together and have appropriate processes for managing their work. At least in the short term, you will also be directly involved in planning work for the whole team (e.g. backlog grooming, ensuring tickets are well specified, monitoring for bottlenecks).
    • Take on line management of the engineering team, including improvement of frameworks for career progression and performance review, and including regular 1:1s with the development team.
    • Represent the engineering team in communications with our sales, marketing and support teams.
    • Play an active role in our hiring process, including continuing to refine that process, forming interview panels, and often participating in those panels.
    • Contribute to decisions on technical architecture and tools for development and operations (e.g. languages, frameworks) as we continue to scale the product while controlling costs.
    • Contribute to mentoring developers and setting up systems to support their growth and training, such as pairing and internal training or sharing sessions.
    • Take opportunities to get hands on, to make sure you can stay in touch with the day-to-day work of the team.

    These responsibilities currently sit with me, our CTO, and we will be working closely together. As we continue to grow the engineering team, I would like to be able to focus on our product, where I believe I can have the most impact. I am looking for an experienced engineering manager to help the team to continue to develop and to uphold the values that have carried us this far. In particular, at Overleaf we aim to be:

    • Friendly, open and approachable - if we can help, we do.
    • Collaborative and innovative, with a love of science & learning.
    • Trustworthy and professional, but not corporate.
    • Sustainable, scalable and reliable, both as people and in our tech.
    • Making our users’ lives easier, by putting the user first.
    • Remote-first and flexible, to working styles & personal lives.

    To give you an idea of what we do, here are some examples of projects (large and small) we recently completed as part of our Overleaf v2 work:
    This year, we have many projects planned including Single Sign On for our many university clients, improvements to our rich text mode, Dropbox sync, B2C conversion funnel, and much more.

    How We Hire

    The stages in our hiring process are typically:
    1. We will aim to update you on the status of your application within one week from when we receive it.
    2. We'll follow up by email (or sometimes schedule a phone call) with any questions we have about your application, usually around logistics, your ambitions and your expectations about the role.
    3. We'll schedule a more in-depth interview, which is typically two hours long. The first hour is discussion, and the second hour is practical. For the practical, you'll have the option of either completing a homework assignment, which requires about one hour of your time before the interview, or doing an exercise during the interview, if you prefer.

    • have a minimum of 8 years of relevant experience.
    • will work for us full time (or nearly full time).
    • will usually be available in our core hours, 2pm–5pm UK time.
