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 an experienced software engineer who loves building products. You will become the primary owner of our product engineering. As part of the founding team, you will work alongside the CEO and collaborate daily with the product and design teams. You will be asked to think and act like a founder, and you will be treated as an owner.

Within the first month, you’ll start shipping production-quality code. By month three, we’d like you to start pointing out threats/opportunities for our technical systems. By month six, you’ll be partnering with the CEO on architectural decisions. And by month nine, you’ll take the primary lead on architectural decisions.

Given the complexity of building a spreadsheet that works flawlessly with live-syncing external data, we have to keep the foundation rock solid. You will be a foundational part of our long-term strategizing and expected to plan our architecture three chess moves ahead of where we are today.

Who you are:

  • You have a Bachelors in Computer Science (preferred) or other relevant credentials that demonstrate deep understanding of data structures, algorithms, and programming patterns
  • You’re an seasoned engineer who has 4+ years of experience building front end web applications using VueJs (or other front-end web frameworks)
  • You have a deep command of the contemporary Javascript language — more knowledgeable than most
  • 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 and build front-end architecture for the core platform (Javascript, VueJS)
  • Gradually assume some engineering leadership responsibilities, including priority-setting, leading our process, and making major architecture and technology decisions
  • Collaborate with our back-end engineer to design robust, scalable APIs, systems, and architecture
  • Identify and resolve QA issues across the product
  • Own and advocate for the health and quality of the systems the team builds
  • Document your work and our architecture for improved collaboration
  • Join customer feedback calls to develop and share opinions about our roadmap and technical requirements
  • Collaborate with our design leader to establish and maintain a global design system with standard UI components that improve speed and quality of execution
  • Periodically create content about our engineering to keep our customers informed and help us document our engineering culture

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.
