At Slab, we believe that knowledge is the foundation of any organization's success. When a team's collective knowledge is accessible, that team's potential is limitless.

That's why we're making the workplace a source of learning and purpose through knowledge-sharing. Our product helps teams easily create, organize, and discover knowledge across the entire company, from non-technical to tech-savvy. Thousands of customers rely on Slab across their entire workforces, including Asana, Benchling, and Fivetran.

As an engineering team, we deeply care about solving our users' pain points as well as our engineering quality. We thrive on learning from each other. Our team has been globally remote from the start, so we have the infrastructure to support flexible work arrangements.

In this role, you'll be joining a small group of experienced engineers and will play a critical role in building both our product and our codebase itself.

Technologies We Use:

TypeScript + JavaScript + Sass + React
GraphQL + Apollo + Absinthe
Phoenix + Elixir
Docker + Kubernetes
Google Compute Platform

We are looking for either depth in one part of the stack or breadth across a wide portion.

What We Value:

 Stay lean - We strive for the greatest possible impact with the fewest number of employees. We empower our teammates with the most leveraged tools and efficient processes.
 Default to open - We encourage and nurture open exchanges of knowledge and ideas — while acting with respect and regard for each other.
 Think rigorously - We act and execute after careful thought and examination of known information, while acknowledging the risks we accept in its absence.
 Say no - We aim to deliver exceptionally high value in a small set of focus areas. We willingly abstain from good ideas to give only the most promising paths the attention they deserve.
 The best prevails - Whether an idea or an individual, the best will rise to the top at Slab. Ideas we pursue can come from anywhere, and individuals gain responsibilities due to outperformance.
 Global optimization - We believe that our mission — to make the workplace a source of learning and purpose — is the ultimate priority, above any single project, team, or individual.
