Wrangle in Durham is hiring a Senior Software Engineer

This job might already be filled.

Wrangle is on a mission to change how companies operate. Thousands of organizations have run hundreds of thousands of workflows with our no-code workflow builder to automate their business processes and tickets — right in Slack.

As an early engineer, you get the chance to design and build this product from the ground up. You'll be working directly with the founders and working with a small team of senior engineers.

You'll build both the user interface (both in Slack and on the web) plus the back-end.

The ideal candidate is an expert in both architecting maintainable, scalable systems and building individual features.

What you'll do

  • Help the founders get to product-market fit by systematically testing hypotheses around personas, use cases, and channels.
  • Spec and build features and systems that help our customers get their work done in a clear, fast, and responsive application.
  • Work on both our Slack integration and our web application, which together deliver the user interface.
  • Work on the full stack: our Slack integration, our web application, and our back-end systems. We use Typescript on all three projects and we use React, Next JS, Node.JS, Bolt (Slack's SDK), and Postgres. We host on Heroku currently.
  • Participate in a collaborative product delivery workflow, from design to spec to feature to pull request to deployment.

Who you are

  • 4+ years of industry experience with modern full-stack web development, with particular emphasis on user-facing feature development. Bonus: experience designing systems, not just features.
  • You are fluent in one or more frontend and backend technologies, and are interested in programming in TypeScript, React, and Express.
  • You have a good understanding of web technologies and large-scale web application architecture.
  • You believe the best product is the one that helps users accomplish their goals while growing the business.
  • You have strong opinions, weakly held. You assume validation and iteration are a given to produce the best results.

What we offer

  • Flexible, in-person/remote culture that optimizes for balance and productivity, not butts-in-seats.
  • The opportunity to learn how to build a startup with direct mentoring from serial entrepreneurs: fundraising, finding product-market fit, and growing a team.
  • Meaningful equity options — you're getting in before the Series A!
  • Great medical and dental benefits for you and your family.
  • 401k.
  • 12 weeks of parental leave.
  • Flexible and generous time-off and sick benefits.

Our Values

Most companies have values on a wall somewhere, but no one pays much attention to them. Values should give a team guidance on how to make choices when facing uncertainty. Here is how we make choices while building Wrangle the company:

Less Meetings, More Thoughtfulness

We love to talk with our co-workers, but hard strategy choices require thoughtful, written communication. Meetings and Slack channels don’t often allow for considered discussion and they interrupt focused, individual work.

No Jerks

Some places tolerate talented-but-difficult people. Not us — being toxic affects all of our other talented people and we won't tolerate it.

Today, Not Tomorrow

Perfect is the enemy of the good. We have coworkers and customers that need our help, so we move with urgency.

Process is Good, Actually

In the early days of a company, you need to move fast. But we can't scale as a team if we don't document and automate our processes. That's what Wrangle is for, so we ought to be the best in the world at it.

Build Things Customers Want

It's fun to solve hard technical challenges. But customers don't care about that. Build things they want.
