About the Team

We’re a small team of builders passionate about creating a world where people are brought together through learning music, celebrating work-in-progress, and sharing moments in the artistic journey. We're diverse and geographically distributed, and we care deeply about building a workforce and culture that is inclusive and equitable for people of all backgrounds and experiences. We particularly encourage people from communities that tend to be underrepresented to apply, including women, people of color, and LGBTQ people.

We also want you to know that you can be a great candidate even if you don't perfectly fit the mold we describe below and you can have important skills we haven't even thought of yet. If that's you, don't hesitate to reach out and tell us about yourself.

Your Values

You thrive in an environment of high-responsibility.
You are obsessed with your personal growth and highly self-reflective.
You treat others with kindness. You’re excited when your teammates succeed.
You are insatiably curious. You can’t stop learning. You’re fascinated about underlying drivers of behavior (between teammates, users, anyone).
You’re human and you care about the human-element that technology should highlight, not obscure.

Desired Skills, Experiences, and Beliefs

• You have 5+ years of industry experience in high-growth startups, consumer products, or social apps.
• Experience with React Native, Typescript, and Firebase.
• You're product-oriented and design-oriented.
• You're hungry to dig into parts of the stack you may not have worked with previously. That prospect of learning excites you.
• You're opinionated, but open to new ideas and emerging technologies. In fact, you love new technologies, but understand how to weigh the consequences.
• Bonus: You've learned or are learning a musical instrument!

What you'll be working on

• Dive into our current codebase, infrastructure, and team processes.
• Work with the Design Team to prioritize and bring Figma flows to life.
• Build, test, launch features on a weekly basis. You'll get a front row seat to see just how much the community cares about the updates you're making.
• Provide thoughtful feedback on Pull Requests, Product Briefs, and ADRs, helping the Tonic Dev Team grow in the quality of code and the way they think about product and technical decisions.
• Attend workshops to level up your skills and be a proud representative of Tonic in the tech community!
