The Opportunity:

Do you crave more impact in your role? Are you looking to accelerate your learning by joining an early-stage company going after a massive market opportunity?

Visor is a fast-growing company simplifying how people work together. Our product looks like a spreadsheet, but it syncs both directions with other data sources. It’s designed for people of all skill levels. There are no other products on the market that make it this easy to work in a spreadsheet with data from CRMs, project management software, and more. Our vision is to become the default place where people work together with information from everywhere.

In the last year, we ran an incredibly successful public product preview. Our innovative product earned praise from hundreds of users, and received substantial backing from world class investors. Now, we are rapidly expanding our team to pursue the massive opportunity in front of us.

The company was founded at Harvard. We’re backed by the same investors as Airbnb, Shopify, Zapier, Hubspot, and Warby Parker. Users from Blackstone, Amazon, Doordash, and dozens more have given Visor hearty acclaim.

Your role on our team will include substantial equity. You will be asked to think and act like a founder, and you will be treated as an owner.

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.

Visor is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to a diverse workforce. We will consider all qualified candidates regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity, family responsibilities, disability, education, political affiliation or veteran status.

The Role:

You’ll enjoy being a software engineering fellow at Visor if you want an authentic experience as a software engineer at a fast-growing technology company. While big companies may give you very tiny sandbox projects to work on, Visor will give you a true-to-life engineering experience. You’ll be treated like a full-time team member from your very first day.

After a brief onboarding, you’ll be expected to start writing production-quality code just like a full-time software engineer. You will be asked to select priorities from our roadmap and build them, with support of the full Visor engineering team. You should expect to be shipping code to customers within your three weeks.

We strive to provide our fellows with a challenging and rewarding experience. At the same time, we plan only to extend offers to the most talented engineers -- who have consistently demonstrated excellence in academic performance. This job opening is evergreen: we are always in the market for outstanding talent that is in the early stages of their careers.

We develop our product using JavaScript and Python. You will be expected to acquire familiarity with one of these languages before starting your fellowship, but it is not a requirement to apply and interview.

The minimum fellowship would be for 20 hours per week for a minimum of 90 days.

Exceptional performance during the fellowship can lead to an offer to return to Visor, either for a future fellowship or a full-time role.

You will:

  • Write production-quality code for either our back-end or front-end architecture (Javascript, VueJS; Python, Django)
  • Identify and resolve QA issues within the entire product experience
  • Create plans and specifications for your technical projects
  • Perform competitive research
  • Join customer calls to develop and share opinions about our roadmap and technical requirements

You are:

  • An excellent student
  • A passionate technologist who is curious about the future but grounded in using proven technology to solve real world problems right now
  • 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
  • Not easily frustrated or discouraged by challenging technical problems for which there are no clear answers (internally or on the web)
  • 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.

You have:

  • Pursuit of a degree in Computer Science (Preferred) or other relevant credentials
  • Familiarity with the principles and tools of building and deploying web applications
