💻Senior Fullstack Engineer (frontend leaning)
Posted on Friday, June 2, 2023
We believe in a world where great businesses are built on the backs of innovative products and the ability for customers to repeatedly get value out of those products. Concepts like "time-to-value" are increasingly important – not just for the customer, but for the business and software teams.
Our team has decades of collective experience in building onboarding and adoption workflows. We also have deep empathy with the internal Success and Growth teams who have limited resources in experimenting with and shaping these product experiences. That's why we're building Bento, to give modern software companies the system to design engaging and collaborative adoption workflows, without needing to build or maintain it in-house.
Now, Bento is hiring a senior front-end engineer to own critical parts of our user-facing product. You'll be working with our engineering team along with our designer. As a small team, this is a critical and high impact role in a fast moving environment. Our ideal teammate moves quickly, enjoys the full span of engaging with users, defining product UX, architecting, and implementing to learn and validate product value.
Bento is backed by top investors including Y Combinator and General Catalyst, and is fully distributed. This role is remote and open to anyone working within EST or PST timezones.
Build new product features including:
Our library of embeddable web components rendered inside our customer's apps
Our low-code onboarding guide builder & rich text editor
Optimize our UI and JS bundle sizes for a seamless and delightful end user experience in our customers' applications
As a senior member of our technical staff, shape how we think about engineering culture, tech innovation and scalability, as well as help grow our team.
As part of an early stage team, you'll sometimes wear multiple hats including working with our customers. We think the best team members view this as fun and an opportunity for impact.
