Hiring Manager: Software Engineering Manager, Beth Andres-Beck

About Us
LTSE is on a mission to strengthen the partnership between companies and investors who focus on the long-term. We believe that modern companies deserve a public-market option and ecosystem that rewards them for making smart choices that embrace their futures -- choices to innovate, to invest in their employees, and to seed future growth.

Founded by Eric Ries, an entrepreneur, New York Times-bestselling author, and the creator of the Lean Startup methodology, LTSE is building a team of diverse professionals in fields that span technology, finance, regulation, and law. Investors in LTSE include Founders Fund, Collaborative Fund, Andreessen Horowitz, Obvious Ventures, Uprising, and Initialized.

Your Future Team
We’re building a software platform for company builders. Our mission is to enable the next generation of bold, visionary companies to thrive. Each tool is something we choose to invest in to create eco-system reform, a fundamental part of our mission.

We are a small, diverse engineering team and you will be a key member, fully participating in the design and evolution of our tooling and practices. Our engineers believe in writing tests, refactoring mercilessly, and that the best code is the code you never have to write. We are a fast-moving startup, but we also prioritize sustainable development, taking advantage of the efficiencies of a small team to have a disproportionate impact.

As a Frontend Architect you will have an opportunity to own the process by which we build design systems for our tools. You will work closely with your colleagues, partners and customers to build web applications that make it easier to run companies well.
