Remote Senior Full Stack Engineer

PersistIQ is hiring a remote Senior Full Stack Engineer! Help re-launch and lead a profitable YC-backed startup with 100s of customers that is undergoing a fresh start.

About PersistIQ
PersistIQ is a sales engagement platform that helps businesses send personalized emails to their customers. Founded in 2014, Pouyan and Cyrus built one of the leading tools in sales and were a part of Y Combinator with PersistIQ. Fast forward to 2019, the product continues to be used by hundreds of teams that are looking to accelerate their sales efforts. The team is now being run by Daniel, a serial founder who has gone through YC himself and grew a business from $0 to $1m+ in annual recurring revenue.

We have users who love using PersistIQ every single day as part of their workflow. See some reviews here:

The market for sales engagement is a $2b+ market and is said to grow to $5b+ by 2023. Businesses continue to have the problem of starting conversations with prospects and customers. This is an opportunity to run an existing company while having the autonomy to run experiments and building software that deeply into customer problems.

Take over a robust codebase, help lead and build a team, and work on meaningful problems that help customers while working from anywhere in the world.

Our mission is to help businesses reach their potential. PersistIQ is our humble attempt to deeply understand the workflows and pain points of sales teams and build software for them that makes their lives easier and that they materially care about.
