Subscript: Software Engineer (Frontend, Backend, or Full stack)

    Headquarters:

    URL: https://subscript.com

    The basics

    The stack: Postgres, Node.js/Express.js, React. Currently running on Heroku, eventually AWS
    The product: We’re building the first subscription intelligence platform that empowers finance teams to get real-time snapshots of how their subscription business is performing!
    The way we work:
    This is a remote job – work anywhere you want, and in any timezone on earth (or outside earth, whatever).
    We are an asynchronous team – we don’t do scheduled meetings, and rely on each team member to pick their own schedule and to communicate clearly in writing and with recorded videos. Hear from our co-founder Michelle Lee on what it’s like to work asynchronously (click here).

    We operate completely autonomously – no one will tell you what to do, we’ll just tell you the goals and you will figure out how to work towards them with the rest of the team.

    The role you’ll play on our team:
    You’d be one of the first seven engineers on the team.
    You’ll work on
    Backend: database design and implementation, complex data management problems, API design and implementation, writing tests
    Frontend: building features in our react app, HTML/CSS + styled components, building amazing user experiences, writing tests
    Frontend and backend: building and iterating on our product, collaborating with designers and founders, and making a product that users will love.

    Like all start-ups we’re scrappy, but not scrappy on compensation: Subscript is committed to paying our awesome team members at market-rate, including benefits.

    Our interview process
    Our interview process is designed to focus on your skills as a software engineer, and your ability to communicate clearly. We’re a fully asynchronous company, so that’s how we will communicate in this interview process too 🙂.

    We’ll ask you to work on a small code challenge
    After reviewing the short code challenge, we’ll ask you to work on a ~90 minute exercise while recording a loom (or other screen recording) video.
    If the video interview above goes well, we’ll want to learn a bit more about how you communicate in writing – we will ask you to put together a technical design document. This is one of the biggest ways we communicate at Subscript, so we want to see that you can work well with that!

    And finally, hopefully we’ll send you an offer. And hopefully you’ll accept!
    Requirements

    You’re an excellent engineer (you write high quality code, you write great tests, you ship quickly)
    You’re a great communicator via writing, and via recorded videos.
    You’re excited about working on a globally-distributed and diverse team, in an incredibly unique culture where autonomy, accountability, and ownership are equally as valued as your skillset.
    That’s it!

    Benefits

    Unlimited vacation
    Completely flexible work schedule – work literally anytime (and anywhere) you want!
    Benefits appropriate to your location (health/dental/vision in the USA)
    Company wide retreats multiple times per year
