The Mission

Founded and led by women, we are a human-powered technology company — we combine seamless technology with personal service to help people save time and be their greatest selves. This means that we are building a platform with two primary users in mind: the clients who use it to request services and our colleagues who use it to fulfill those requests.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be critical to achieving this mission of changing the way people live through human-powered technology. You’ll be a key part of the engineering team focused on technology choices, architecture and scalability of the platform. You will help develop our engineering philosophy and practices to lead the construction of a new type of tech-enhanced personal service.

Our Stack

We have a modern javascript-heavy stack; Node.js, React.js and React Native. We love javascript for its flexibility, simplicity and ubiquity. We temper its quirks with TypeScript, linting, automated testing and dedicated QA engineers. We use: node/express API, Mongo + PostgreSQL databases, React web for admin and internal dashboards, React Native for consumer-facing apps.

What You’re Like

  • Your interest in development extends beyond coding to product and business
  • You know that beauty is in the details
  • You care about radical simplification just as much as robust engineering
  • You can craft the architecture, develop our core features, and collaborate with our Product and Design teams to build something useful and beautiful
  • You are self-directed and have a passion for learning new technologies.

What You’ll Do

  • Scale a growing organization by elevating its design, processes and operations
  • Write great code and deploy often
  • Work with designers, product managers, engineers and the whole company to build amazing products for all our users — customers, as well as our internal operations and field teams
  • Shape the relationship between software architecture and customer experiences

What Else You’ll Need

  • Required Skills: At least 5-7 years experience across the full web stack. You can write SCSS, keep logic out of controllers, and properly index your database tables.  
  • You’ll need empathy, taste, and passions outside of engineering.
  • You can be more focused on different parts of the stack: more UI/frontend, more server/DB
  • Having a good working knowledge of modern Javascript is essential. Ideally, you have shipped production code using Node.js and have a familiarity working on a web stack powered by Express or similar.
  • Nice to Haves: Experience with React Native for iOS and Android. You have experience with typescript.  An interest in UX and hospitality.

About Us

We are a hospitality and technology platform focused on building intuitive, personal help into the most important space in people’s lives: our home.

We believe in responsible company-building, which means we deeply consider the second- and third-order consequences of our actions. We do the right thing, even when it’s more difficult or takes longer.
