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:

This is a great role for experienced software engineers who love building products. You will become the primary owner of our product engineering and will report directly to the technical CEO & Founder.

We usually ship updates to our product 2-3 times per week. Within the first month, you’ll start shipping production-quality code. By month three, we’d like you to start pointing out the threats/opportunities for our technical systems. And by month six, you’ll be partnering with the CEO on architectural decisions. At 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.

You will:

  • Design and build front-end architecture for the core platform (Javascript, VueJS)
  • Gradually assume ownership of 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
  • 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
  • Build out a team of engineers to meet the company’s hiring goals and mentor new hires
  • Periodically create content about our engineering to keep our customers informed and help us document our engineering culture

You are:

  • 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
  • Willing to recommend improvements to the company’s existing practices but open to accept and embrace the architectural decisions and technologies already used
  • Deeply interested in product quality, performance, and reliability
  • 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:

  • A Bachelors in Computer Science (Preferred) or other relevant credentials
  • 4+ years of experience building front end web applications
  • Deep command of the contemporary Javascript language
  • Familiarity with the principles and tools of building and deploying web applications
  • Experience with VueJS (or similar front-end web frameworks)

You’ll get these benefits:

  • 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
  • Flexible to work-from-home (even after it’s safe to return to an office)
  • Be a charter member of the founding team of a venture-backed company

Location:

This is a New York City-based position with flexibility to work from home. Until all team members feel it is safe for in-person meetings, we will remain fully remote.

At this stage, we are only able hire individuals who can work lawfully in the United States. We are not able to sponsor H-1B cases at this time or hire candidates without legal authorization to work in the United States.
