We can also explore. :
When we get to work together for several weeks on a project (of course, we’d pay you whatever you think is fair). Often working together for a bit is a great way to determine whether there’s a good match as future teammates and it can give you a lot of transparency. We understand, however, that’s not always possible for everyone. (4 weeks, 40 hours per week minimum)


How many people do you plan to hire?
We plan to grow the team a bit to around ~15 total people (+7) through the second half of 2022—in which case, we may reevaluate. The next set of people are going to help us to scale to hundreds and eventually thousands of paying users as we progress to product-market-fit. We’ll be hiring mostly engineers and a few key non-technical roles.


What’s the technical stack that you’re working on?
We primarily write code in Vue and Javascript TypeScript for our web app. We have backend in Python and Node. We also get our work done with some linux libraries. We use both AWS and Google Cloud and our architecture is scalable. We manage our code in GitHub and deploy using GitHub workflows.


What is work/life balance like at your company?
We usually leave work around 6 PM to have dinner with friends or family. As a result of being an early stage startup, we wouldn’t want to hide this reality to prospective candidates: raw hours actually make a big difference in the impact we can make right now. This won’t always be the case but it is at present. So, often we find ourselves working later on in the evening, on rare occasions a weekend, but it’s mostly driven by personal ambition. We don’t have any expectations of anyone to do so.
