The opportunity:

Are you looking to accelerate your career growth by joining an early-stage company going after a massive market opportunity?

Visor is a fast-growing company simplifying how people work together. Our vision is to become everyone’s favorite place to collaborate on data from anywhere. Visor’s product looks like a spreadsheet so everyone knows how to use it. But it’s the world’s most deeply connected spreadsheet, making entirely new solutions possible.

The company was founded at Harvard. We’re backed by the same investors as Airbnb, Shopify, Zapier, Hubspot, and Warby Parker. We have thousands of users worldwide.

The role:

We are looking for a business-oriented engineer to join our New York-based team and own the engineering projects related to acquiring and retaining Visor’s users. As part of the founding team, you will work alongside the CEO and collaborate daily with the marketing & customer success teams. You will be asked to think and act like a founder, and you will be treated as an owner.

We plan to set an industry standard for what a product-led growth strategy can accomplish. That means a superior experience for users and exceptional results for our success metrics. To accomplish this, you will be the founding technical member of a team whose sole focus is on the new user experience and commercialization of the product. Our growth engineering team’s focus will range from how users find Visor to how they manage their paid subscription.

Within the first month, you’ll start shipping production-quality code. By month three, you’ll be selecting your own projects and executing them. By month six, you’ll have technical ownership over our entire new user experience. And at month nine, you’ll be building entire new systems and platforms for user acquisition and experience.

This role requires a certain understanding of marketing concepts because you’ll also be managing the attribution data to help us learn where our best-value users originate. That will involve configuration and light integration work with our Marketing Automation platform, HubSpot.

Who you are:

  • You have a Bachelors in Computer Science (preferred) or other relevant credentials
  • A business-minded engineer who is passionate about driving results
  • You’re an seasoned engineer who has 2+ years of experience building front end web applications using VueJs (or other front-end web frameworks)
  • You are familiar with marketing technology concepts (such as UTM parameters and SEO optimization)
  • A self-motivated learner who loves improving your skills and knowledge
  • A collaborative engineer who prioritizes the total output of the whole team over personal achievement
  • You’re willing to recommend improvements to the company’s existing practices but open to accept and embrace the architectural decisions and technologies already used
  • You’re deeply interested in product quality, performance, and reliability
  • You’re comfortable speaking your mind and sharing your opinions
  • Detail-oriented. To prove it, please include a sentence in your cover letter referencing this line and include this word: meticulous.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Design, build, and maintain full-stack architecture for our new user experience (Javascript, VueJS; Python, Django)
  • Gradually become more autonomous about priority-setting and making major architecture and technology decisions
  • Expand our user attribution system so we understand where our best users come from and how they engage with Visor’s product and resources
  • Build and maintain our marketing website, landing pages, content management system, and template system
  • Improve our new user onboarding experience
  • Build special projects to support our growth campaigns (e.g. a user community)
  • Manage our analytics dashboards in Metabase
  • Make build/buy decisions about products we can use
  • Identify and resolve QA issues within the new user experience
  • Join customer feedback calls to develop and share opinions about our roadmap and technical requirements

What we offer:

  • Competitive salary
  • Generous equity
  • Health, Dental, and Vision insurance
  • Unlimited vacation days (with mandatory two weeks)
  • Generous budget for purchasing equipment to work from home
  • Semi-flexible work hours
  • Opportunity to work from home (and office, when safety allows)
  • Be a charter member of the founding team of a venture-backed company

Our culture:

We are passionate product builders who believe that today’s problems require a fresh perspective. We love our users and are deeply inspired by them. Our team culture values entrepreneurship, positivity, integrity, and continuous learning. We deeply care for one another and believe that the strength of the individual powers the strength of the group.

Our company mission is to improve the way the world works. That means we want to improve how our customers do their work, and we also want to have a positive impact on the broader community. We are committed to leaving the world a better place than we found it. We seek to build a team that wants to give back to our communities.

Location:

This is a New York City-based position with flexibility to work from home most of the time. We’re sorry, but we cannot consider fully remote candidates (those who live more than 250 miles away from New York City).

Equal employment opportunity:

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend only to apply when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes but don't necessarily meet every point on the job description, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.

At Visor, we believe in and are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, national origin, gender, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital or parental status, disability, veteran status, or other class protected by applicable law. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
