About Thatch

At Thatch we're building tools that make it remarkably easy for Travel Creatives to curate, share and sell travel guides and planning services.
The company has raised $5.2M from some of Silicon Valley's best early-stage investors including Tim Connors at Pivot North (first investor in 6 $1B+ companies) Wave Capital (early operators at Airbnb that lead data science and corp dev) Freestyle.vc ( early investors in Patreon, Airtable) and Marc Randolph (co-founder of Netflix).

The Role

As a founding engineer, you will be responsible for scoping technical requirements and delivering impactful features by working closely with the founders as well as the product design team. Unlike most engineering roles, you will have a lot more freedom to make decisions and do what delivers the greatest impact to the business. This role means you will be wearing multiple hats such as (QA, Product, Backend, Frontend, Infrastructure).
If you are looking for a more structured role, where you work with product managers and hand things off to QA then this is not the role for you. If you want to be a part of a very fast moving startup, learn a lot, have a lot more freedom to make your own decisions, and work on challenging problems, then this is for you!

Responsibilities

Take full ownership of features from start to finish.
Scope and prioritize items on roadmap alongside Design and Product.
Deeply understand our product, and immerse yourself in the community we have built to be able to understand our users.
Write end-to-end software (backend, mobile, web, dev-ops).

Ideal Candidate

We're looking for a capable, experienced generalist engineer. The most important skills you’ll need to have are the ability to make sound product decisions and ship high-quality products fast. Our small team is heavily product oriented and we look for engineers with great product instincts who can also own whole projects from start to finish.

Requirements

At least 3-4 years of software engineering experience in industry.
Knowledge of at least 3 languages (We primarily use Java, Dart, Flutter and are open to others).
Excellent product instincts. The best solution for users is just as important as the best technical solution
You are known for shipping products and features quickly and efficiently
You’re an excellent problem solver, and don’t need to be told exactly what to do
Comfortable working on Backend, Web & Mobile (Flutter).
Ability to pick up on new technologies very quickly.
Proven track record of delivering features.

Bonus

Startup experience at a high growth company.
Google Maps API experience
Stripe experience
Browser Extension/Plugin experience
Web-crawling and scraping experience
Kubernetes/containerized workloads experience
Message driven/asynchronous services experience
