Our mission is to protect homes, families and communities from wildfire disaster, which we’ve been doing successfully now for two years.
The problem that we’re solving is protecting homes and helping people safely navigate a wildfire situation. To protect homes, our system defends against embers, the #1 cause of structure loss from wildfires. To help people navigate a wildfire situation, we’re providing better mapping and alert resources so that our customers can track wildfire activity near them and receive important emergency notifications from the best resources available.
You’d be just the third full time software engineer, so this is a great opportunity to have a significant impact on a very interesting and meaningful product.
You’re an experienced generalist with a deep T in mobile and React Native. You take ownership, know how to balance your work and personal life, are comfortable moving fast, pushing boundaries, and breaking things. You’re a straight talker who tells it like it is, and finds no shame in being wrong. You work well in a team, supporting people when they need it, and getting out of their way when they don’t.
You’ll be taking over an existing app from an outsource team, the code is decent but definitely will need your expertise to bring it up to a higher standard of best practices as well as positioning us for the continued expansion into new markets and further feature development.
- Expert in mobile development using React Native
- Expert in the web stack: HTML, CSS & JS
- Expert in translating designs into working screens rapidly
- Experience with consuming Websocket APIs a bonus
- Capable of leaning in on web dev when required
- UI/UX design skills a bonus
The role is mostly dev, but there’ll be occasional ops and support until we grow enough to have a dedicated ops team. You need to be ok being one of three engineers sharing these duties. With team members in Illinois, Colorado, Wyoming and California, we’ve always been a fully remote and distributed team. We tend to operate on Pacific time, but software dev will generally be asynchronous.
Pay is negotiable based on experience, but we’re looking to fill the role in the range of a $120-150k package. We have an unlimited vacation policy, great health/dental/vision benefits, and a generous equity plan for all employees.
In your application, please include a sample of code that you’re proud of and explain why you’re proud of it.
