- Building new reports and data visualizations, including pulling the data from the database(s) in a Cloud Function, formatting it for display it in charts and tables, and adding search/sort/filter capabilities.
- Building new tools, like our Link Generator, where you also need to store or cache data to make them fast and performant.
- Writing API integrations following proven patterns and systems.
- Crawling sites and browser automation with Puppeteer. For example, to generate screenshots or retrieve website metadata.

- Experience on Google Cloud Platform.
- Experience working on data-intensive products from both the frontend and backend standpoint.
- Comfort with SQL, and any or more than one of our databases like Firebase, Redis, BigQuery, or Postgres.
- You can work independently while still asking questions when something isn’t clear.
- We’ll start slow and tag team over Slack as you learn the product, domain, and codebase.
- After 2-3 weeks, you’ll able to independently handle small features, add functionality to existing screens, and fix simple bugs.
- After 1-2 months, you’ll be able to implement small to medium-sized, standalone features, build new screens, and fix more complex bugs.
- After 3-5 months, you’ll be able to contribute to system refactors and more architectural-level changes.
- Fill out the application form linked below. You’ll hear from us within 1 week.
- If you pass the application, you’ll get a short coding test (15-20 minutes) to help us evaluate your programming fundamentals.
- Then, we’ll do an initial interview over Zoom to learn about you and share more about our company.
- Finally, a more practical programming task to get an idea of how you’d work on a sightly larger project (under 1 hour).
- In the end, we’ll see if we’re a match from both sides.
