Most companies hire based on gut feel and credentials, not evidence of a candidate’s ability to excel at the job. Today's most forward-thinking Engineering leaders know that talent is everywhere and comes from a variety of backgrounds. They know that great senior engineers are great at debugging, technical communication, and architecture beyond writing great code. Woven scenarios allow hiring teams to predict how well candidates will perform on the job, not how well they will perform in an interview.
Over your career, you’ve built production level systems (preferably with Ruby on Rails, but that’s not a hard requirement). You’ve participated in technical interviews - both as an interviewer and interviewee. You’ve developed opinions about what works and what doesn’t work and how to make these interviews more engaging and unbiased.
The Problem You’ll Own
We’ve built a system that helps companies find highly qualified engineers by using a series of real world scenarios during their interview process. No trick questions, no puzzles, no FizzBuzz. Think debugging live systems, designing new ones, and collaborating on technical topics. These help the candidate show what they are truly capable of doing and allow our customers to find amazing engineers for their team.
You’ll be building new features to help improve the hiring manager experience - be it selecting appropriate challenges for their roles or evaluating candidates that have applied to roles. You’ll be working to make our candidate experience even better. To eliminate the gap between talent and opportunity, we must build a platform that supports the same level of quality at scale. That’s where you come in.
What you’ll be doing
- Taking the platform to the next level by implementing features to support both our customers and their candidates.
- Supporting a team of engineers to ensure our customers are evaluating their candidates for the role they need to fill with scenarios to reflect real world problems - no puzzles, no trick questions, no FizzBuzz.
You can do most work asynchronously, and we'd like the ability to work together as needed. As a result, we'd ideally like applicants to be within a few hours of US Eastern time, but are open to a wider time range for the right candidate. We’re a fully distributed team and collaborate mostly over Slack and Zoom.
Experience you have
- This role can span a mid-career to senior level engineer. You probably have 3+ years of professional software engineering experience
- You’ve worked in different areas of the stack (e.g. front end, backend, mobile)
- You have experience working in a remote environment with teammates in multiple time zones.
Nice to haves
These are not requirements of the role, especially for non-senior candidates, but they will aid in your ability to join and contribute to the team rapidly.

- A polyglot, familiar with both dynamic and statically typed languages
- Experience performing light user-testing of features or prototypes with customers
- Experience translating high-fidelity design mockups to working code
- Interest in software engineering challenges/scenarios
What’s in it for you
- Radical transparency: company financials, compensation, strategy, etc
- Fully remote work at a remote-first company with flexible hours
- Annual cash compensation: ~$145k
- Significant equity (and the info to fairly value that equity) in a high-growth startup
