At Ashby, we’re on a mission to help professionals excel at their jobs with software. We believe current software is barely scratching the surface and the most promising productivity improvements haven’t materialized yet.
We’re starting with a suite of products that help talent leaders, recruiters, and managers excel at hiring. Prior to starting Ashby, our Co-Founder and CEO, Benji, experienced the limitations of current products first hand. This experience has created a relentless focus to solve recruiting’s toughest problems with powerful and delightful software.
We’ve not launched publicly yet, but we already have amazing (paying) customers, such as Opendoor, Plaid, Figma, Airtable, Snyk, and Benchling and we’re backed by great investors, including YCombinator, Elad Gil, and Lachy Groom. We’ll share more once we meet.
We’ve only scratched the surface of how Ashby can help our customers, it’s the perfect time to join.
Here are a few key points that should give you an idea of what it is like to work with us:
We value a strong sense of ownership, principled thinking over experience, and thoughtful communication (we put a lot of effort into using the right communication channels) – we’ll get into these and other values during the hiring process.
As an internal tools engineer, you’ll be building software and automation that helps Ashby stay efficient and nimble as it grows. Your customers will be your colleagues; you’ll be able to get feedback and iterate quickly and your changes will have an immediate, direct effect on our day-to-day operations. We love to work with engineers who are product-minded and can take over a lot of responsibilities typically associated with product managers.
Our technology stack is: TypeScript (frontend & backend), Node.js, React, Apollo GraphQL, Postgres, Redis. We don’t require previous experience with these, but experience with and a love for typed languages is helpful!
This is an entry-level position and we’re open to candidates with less than 1 year of full-time work experience. With sustained, excellent work you’ll have the opportunity to transition to a product-facing position.
Beyond the above, we believe that this series of tweets is a great summary of what makes an amazing software engineer.
