SBLY is seeking a full-time member to join its Product Engineering team! We're looking to fill this role by December 2020 with a flexible start date in January 2021. This will be the first time the product engineering team will be hiring a non-senior position and we're excited about the possibility of working with someone that's looking to learn, grow, and make an impact with their work.
One thing that's unique here at SBLY is that we don't have any Product Managers. We put a strong emphasis on product engineers that they are as equally invested in both the implementation and business impact of a engineering task. As a product engineer, you'll work directly with one of our product engineering leads who will provide context about business problems that need to be solved. After that, they'll make sure you have the required technical knowledge before providing you as much autonomy as possible for you to create an engineering solution to the business problem.
Some things our product engineering team has worked on recently include:
SBLY's HQ is in Los Angeles, but we're open to remote as long as you're located in the US.
You're someone with around 1-2 years of full-time software engineering experience that is looking for the next step in your career. Maybe you're looking to make more of an impact with your work. Maybe you want to surround yourself with smart people that will help you learn. Maybe you want to work for a company that cares about employee lifestyle. If any of those reasons resonates with you, let's talk!
SBLY, formerly known as Shareably, has been using media and technology to build digital brands and audiences since 2015. Our first product Shareably, a web publishing network, has reached over 1 billion unique users and profitably generated more than $75M in revenue with $0 in outside funding. As a private, independent, and profitable company, no one influences major company decisions except ourselves.
We pride ourselves on a culture that optimizes for lifestyle, impactful work, and transparency. We're also of the strong belief that a company is only as good as the people in it. Our current team members have studied at universities such as UC Berkeley, UCLA, Northwestern and worked at industry-leading companies such as Affirm, Clutter, Instagram, Instacart, Indiegogo, and Stripe.
Our salary for the Product Engineer position is $120,000 and we will be offering 0.05% of equity.
We offer a compensation and benefits package that optimizes for our employee's lifestyles. All employees get unlimited PTO (we averaged 3-4 weeks per year pre-COVID!) and are encouraged to use it. We allow a flexible work schedule as long as you have a couple hours of overlap between your teammates. We're of the belief that building a company is a journey that is meant to be enjoyed as much as possible, but it shouldn't take away from the personal goals you also have.
Employees receive a fully paid top-tier medical, dental, vision plan and a 401(k) plan with a 3% salary match. We also have non-guaranteed year-end cash bonuses based on overall company performance.
From day one, we've believed that people produce their best work when they're enjoying their work and when they have the optimal work-life balance. No matter how much we grow, this core value will never change.
Please send your resume along with a short blurb about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following subject:
[SBLY] Product Engineer - [YOUR FULL NAME HERE]
Please detail why you see yourself as an ideal fit for the role and our company.
We'll be reviewing all applications submitted until November 13th. Due to the amount of applications we typically receive, we unfortunately will not be able to respond to everyone.
The interview will consist of an intro call with a cofounder, a coding phone screen, a homework question, several Zoom interviews with members of our product engineering team, and a final culture interview call with our other cofounder.
We're looking to make an offer in December 2020 for a flexible start date in January 2021.
