Founding Software Engineer (Education/Remote)

Company: Greylock
Location: Charlotte
Posted on: January 16, 2022

Job Description:

To help support the growth of one of our newest investments (Location: Bay Area/Remote), Im looking to connect with software engineers passionate about moving the needle in education and would be comfortable coming in as an early hire.
About the Company:
The Founders (early employees of a multi-billion-dollar Edtech platform and passionate about redefining education) are aiming to foundationally reconstruct online education using social and technology.
The unique opportunities provided by this role include:

  • Opportunity to grow into a leadership role as the company grows
  • A clean slate to build from scratch
  • Ability to shape the foundations of the product and what we are building, on top of how we build it
  • Significant equity as a foundational team member
  • Working with an experienced, world-class team
    The ideal candidate will have these key attributes:
    • Product thinking - The ability to think about what we're building from the customer point of view. Even though we are engineers, we believe that the engineering team must empathize and build products with the customer in mind to build the best products.
      • Full-stack - Comfortable moving up and down the stack. It matters less that you know the exact frameworks and tools that we use, but you must be willing and able to learn very quickly. We also mean full-stack across other functions outside engineering - you should be excited to understand the entire business and learn from customers.
        • Craftsmanship - You care about writing good code and building great software. You understand the trade-offs when we have to move faster, but you know what perfect means and how to get there when we need to.
          As our founding engineer, you will:
          • Build and shape our frontend and web application architecture
          • Work with world-class engineers to build a massively impactful product
          • Build or choose the tools that will help us iterate very quickly on product
          • Understand customers to figure out what we should be building and how we should build it
            The following experience will be useful:
            • Built web or mobile products in Javascript/React/Angular/React Native
            • Made significant technological decisions for a product or company and stuck around to deal with the consequences
            • Worked in an environment where iteration time is very quick - ideally with continuous integration
            • Rapid prototyping and knowing when to evolve prototypes to a production-ready state
              Application Process:
              I will contact anyone who looks like a potential match--requesting to schedule a call with you immediately. Once contacted, Ill explain our VC Recruiting model, spend some time getting to know you better, and will discuss various startup opportunities within our portfolio with you as well.
              Due to the volume of applicants we typically receive from our job postings, a follow-up email will not be sent until a match is identified with one of our investments.
              Greylock Talent:
              I am a full-time, salaried employee of Greylock, and there are no fees associated with any of the work I do. My team provides free candidate referrals/introductions to all of our active investments (one of the many services we provide), and Im always looking to add new people to our network of talent.
