Visible is a profitable, established startup with a close-knit, internationally-distributed team. If you want to work on a project that impacts founders at thousands of companies and gives them a better chance of success and you've come to the right place.
Our goal is to connect 5,000 founders to investors by 2025. We are ahead of schedule and need help!
We are looking for a full-stack, mid-to-senior-level engineer to join our small engineering team and help scale our product to support our next stage of growth. Here is what to expect:
Our stack includes a Ruby on Rails API, PostgreSQL, Redis and Ember.js (we’re running modern versions of all of these). We deploy to Heroku and use Docker for local development. We have many different challenges that range from implementing product features to DevOps-type work and performance optimization. Other notable tools & frameworks you will be working with: Tailwind CSS, AWS, Mobiledoc, a lot of 3rd party APIs.
We favor full-stack engineers who have a good understanding of the entire scope of an application, but you don’t need to know both Rails and Ember to apply (however, for this position some ruby background is preferred).
You will work closely with our engineering team, product designer, and CEO, helping guide product direction and execution. Some things you might find yourself working on in the first couple of months:
We empower our people. As long as it is aligned with the company vision, everyone has a lot of liberty in choosing what to work on. We have a combined approach, both data-driven and user-driven. We work hard to create a culture where people ask questions and challenge what is being worked on.
Given that we are distributed we end up working across multiple timezones and put an emphasis on being able to work asynchronously. (We have been doing this pre-Covid for the past six years so have a great handle on things)
We have been running a "Shape Up"-like process for the past couple of years. It allows us to build a high-quality product, take time to cool down, and not have to worry about looking at roadmaps that will change in the next 6 weeks anyway.
We have a full-time product designer but everyone in the team is capable of producing shippable UIs and we really value a good sense of aesthetics.
We care more about quality than quantity. We spend time reducing our code and product debt. We pair whenever it is needed, we test our code, and we code review every line that goes in production. It is a great way to ensure quality and learn from each other.
The following are all guide-rails. Don't feel like you need to neatly check each box. If you love the role we'd love to hear from you.
