About Dashworks

Dashworks is the first and only place you need to go to find or discover knowledge about anyone or anything at work. We’re on a path to redesigning the future of collaboration and knowledge sharing. We truly have a unique opportunity to build a category-defining product (and company!) that gets used by millions every day.

We have reached a pivotal stage in our journey:

  • After launching our knowledge assistant for work in July, we're now growing our customer base and product rapidly

  • We've raised more than $9.5m from top investors in Silicon Valley, such as Y Combinator, and founders/operators from companies like Dropbox, Retool, and Twitch.

  • We have a small but exceptional team with high talent density from places like Stanford AI Lab, Meta AI, DoorDash, Instacart, Amazon, etc.

Joining right now would mean you ride the wave of explosive top-of-the-funnel growth yet get meaningful equity in a pre-series A startup.

As an early engineer, you'll play a vital role in building and maintaining seamless integrations between our platform and third-party systems. Your expertise in integration technologies and API development will enable customers to connect and leverage Dashworks with their existing tools. Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including product managers and backend engineers, to ensure robust, reliable integrations aligned with our diverse user base.
