Collaborative mapping platform for transportation planning
San Francisco, New York City, or Remote (US)
On the Remix team, we all share a deep appreciation for public transit and how technology can accelerate positive change in the space. We’re building a platform that enables cities to manage bikeshare programs, redesign bus networks, identify Metro Transit station improvement areas, and much more. Our team is composed of both technologists and folks from the private sector. Thanks to this powerful combination and our great customers, it’s easy for folks who don’t have a background in transportation to quickly feel inspired by the problems we are solving.
Whether it’s helping cities find efficiencies in street design or fueling the transition toward cleaner energy, we’re all driven by the fact that our work yields real-world change. It requires partnering closely with our customers, diving into what they do on a day-to-day basis, and understanding the pain points they are facing. The problem space is fun, unique, and complicated, but what keeps us going is knowing that we are helping many communities have the information they need to make decisions that help all of their members thrive.
Nova Credit believes that every person must be allowed a fair chance to improve their economic condition and that access to credit is a critical tool in accelerating that improvement. When unexpected circumstances arise, credit can put food on tables, roofs over heads, education into impressionable minds, and support critical healthcare needs. It can allow those born into less-privileged circumstances to unlock the goods and services they need to live a more prosperous life. For many of us, this mission is deeply personal – a majority of Novans are first or second generation immigrants, so they’ve experienced these same challenges and are ready to help solve them. In fact, Nova Credit was born when our co-founders Loek, Misha, and Nicky met at Stanford and as immigrants themselves, had a hard time building credit or signing a lease.
We’re solving a problem that has been felt by generations, and it’s a thorny one. It’s this passion to make the US financial system more accessible for immigrants that bonds us. We’re excited to be creative and innovate in order to help our consumers. To that end, we’re constantly working to learn more about the people we’re helping and their pain points. We read their feedback and stories during our company-wide all-hands meetings and do extensive user research to understand who we’re building for and how we can make their lives better.
Everyone has felt the pains of poor developer documentation. It causes headaches for makers and users, and this frustration is what ultimately led us to build ReadMe. In fact, the company started when our founder, Gregory, was retreating in Costa Rica. He was supposed to be building another company with his friends, but kept finding himself reimplementing ReadMe’s functionality whenever he had to write documentation. This was in 2014, and we’ve been building ever since.
We love what we do because it’s so much more than just docs. We’re providing tools for teams to create and manage beautiful documentation with ease. We give customers the ability to log in their users via JWT, we support custom variables to create personalized guides, and we have an interactive API Reference section, which allows users to try out APIs in the browser (check out our demo site!).
Documentation edits normally take days to push through, but companies can push out updates in seconds using ReadMe. Technical writers don’t need to learn how to use XML data models or make GitHub pull requests to author content anymore – they can simply make edits in our dash and save. For larger companies with stricter review processes, we have the suggested edits and staging workflows to iterate on updates and deploy when they’re ready.
We serve customers of all sizes and love being able to help teams grow their developer communities by answering their questions and notifying them of changes. We’re currently working on a new product that gives both API creators and API users insights into how their APIs are used.
Here are some of our open source projects we’re proud of!
A collaborative toolkit enabling anyone to create software
San Francisco, Mountain View, Austin, New York City, or Seattle
We believe software is the most important innovation of the past century, but that its potency as a medium for economic value creation and creative expression remains inaccessible to most. (People typically experience a finished software product, rather than software as a medium.) As engineers, we know how empowering it can be to create software, and we intend to bring this power to everyone.
Instead of designing features for narrow use cases, we create fundamental building blocks that can be assembled to model any workflow. For example, rather than building a “kanban board” product, we allow users to organize any data in Airtable as stacks of cards; and rather than building an “organization chart” product, we allow users to visualize any data hierarchically. At the same time, we strive to make this complexity as accessible as possible, sweating the details of our user interface and creating the best possible experience even when it means more work up front.
This combination of flexibility and accessibility has enabled people from all walks of life – from magazine editors and TV producers to architects and cattle ranchers – to find value in Airtable. Our users love what we’ve built; they praise us on social media and publish amazing templates on Airtable Universe. It's motivating to work on a product that has such a wide, deep, and positive impact.
As ambitious as our current product is, we know our mission demands far more. In Niklaus Wirth's classic formulation, Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs. Airtable starts users with a rich, highly accessible canvas to describe their data, and then layers powerful tools to add functionality (algorithms) over that data. Our Interface Designer even allows our users to define customized interfaces to the programs they construct. By scaling these dimensions – further enriching data, tools, and interfaces – we have a unique opportunity to gradually teach users to build fully-realized applications.
Building that general-purpose toolkit comes with a unique set of hard engineering and design problems. Whether it's finding the right level of complexity and expressiveness for a new feature, or thinking through how it might intersect with the existing dimensions and building blocks of the product, the opportunities and challenges embodied in these problems inspire us to do our best work.
Finally, we're enthusiastic users of Airtable ourselves! Many of our internal processes run on Airtable, including our issue tracker, employee directory, and product roadmap. And if you're ever at a loss for a conversation topic with one of us, ask about our personal bases for our travel plans, parenting responsibilities, or books we're reading. This shared passion for our own product unifies our team and ensures that we're all invested in continually improving it.

Software for Americans with limited income to improve their financial health
Brooklyn, NY or Remote (US)
As the son of struggling immigrants, Jimmy (founder and CEO) experienced firsthand a deep need for helping Americans with limited income improve their financial wellbeing. The technology for checking available SNAP balances didn’t work well on mobile devices, and calling a phone line required a 16-digit number. Jimmy founded Propel in 2014 to address this issue with just $11,000 from a Kickstarter campaign. Now, over five million families across the country rely on Propel.
The pandemic only heightened the need for our app called Providers: thousands of people living paycheck-to-paycheck lost their jobs, contracted COVID-19 at a disproportionate rate, or needed to choose between working and watching their kids when schools closed. We partnered with GiveDirectly to distribute $180 million to randomly selected app users, giving them each $1,000 in one-time grants.
Recently, we raised a $50M Series B to expand one of our newest products, the Providers Card, and build new features for our users to make or save money. If you’d like to join a team that is passionate about building products that serve Americans with limited income, we’re hiring!
Education has the power to transform individuals and enable them to solve the world’s most critical problems. We deeply believe that it’s critical to invest in education. We get the opportunity to do this every day and are transforming education at every level. We started with higher education, as that is the category the world looks to as the pace setter in education but we are branching out from there into professional learning and high schools.
We actively engage with our users at all levels. We are in the rare position to have a technology team working hand-in-hand with a stellar academic team asking how to make education better every day. In addition, we get to directly interact with students at Minerva Schools, watching them grow and thrive as the result of our work.
We get to work on hard and challenging technology problems. We are creating Minerva Forum, which is pushing boundaries of WebRTC and dynamic real time web applications in order to create a compelling education environment. You can see a video of Forum at work, learn more about the future of our platform, its latest features, and how it supports our global partnerships as part of this panel discussion at the ASU GSV Summit 2019 with our CEO Ben Nelson.
Everyone at Jane feels very passionately about the positive effects cannabis can have on a person’s overall well-being. Our co-founder and CEO, Socrates, is a U.S. Army Veteran and had never tried cannabis until he left the Army. Cannabis helped Socrates find balance in his life, connect with his loved ones, and connect with himself. As he explored the medical market in California, he was stunned by how little transparency there was regarding the medicine that may or may not be available to him. It was easier for him to order a burrito than it was to order medicine that was invaluable to his health. This led to the ideation and creation of Jane. The rest is history.
All of us at Jane, whether we consume cannabis or not, are bonded by the mission to transform the cannabis industry and help others. We’re creating a product that provides detailed analytics for retailers and manufacturers down to the SKU level, and has applications even beyond the cannabis industry. We can tell how products behave in each market, for example, how well an edible will sell in L.A. versus Santa Cruz versus Seattle, and dial it down even more to a specific timeframe, shop, and user demographic. Fun fact: when the vape news became big we noticed that baby boomers stopped buying vape products whereas millennials didn’t.
We’re currently the e-commerce provider for 1 out of every 2 stores across the U.S. and also active in Canada. There’s clear product-market fit and our e-commerce technology powers over $3B in cannabis transactions, representing over 30 million orders. We raised a $100M Series C in October 2021 and are continuing to grow quickly!
Nearly 115 million people in the U.S. live with either prediabetes or diabetes, and the number is growing. It’s a story that hits close to home, since Sami Inkinen (co-founder and CEO) learned he had pre-diabetes the same year he won his age group at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. Sami wasn’t satisfied with the conventional wisdom of “exercising more and eating less” and knew there had to be a better way. He partnered with nutrition and metabolic health experts, Drs. Stephen Phinney and Jeff Volek, and thus Virta Health was born – with the goal of reversing type 2 diabetes in 100 million people by 2025. Knowing that we’re making a tangible difference in people’s lives is a constant source of daily motivation and something that unites us all.
Many people with diabetes only see a medical provider every few months, when in reality, they have to make hourly decisions about their health. With our mobile app, we’re able to skip waiting rooms and give patients near real-time access to medical providers and health coaches.
Whether it’s nutrition coaching, behavioral advice, or medical care, we leverage technology and a science-based approach to personalize recommendations and ensure long-term success. For example, Virta’s focus on personalized nutrition helps change blood sugar levels naturally, which means patients can reduce their usage of medications like insulin. Our technology surfaces these needs to medical providers who can proactively contact patients to de-prescribe medications. If you’re excited about making a real-world impact from day one, take a look at our open roles!
While nearly everyone is on the internet, very few of us have the high level of education and skills to build it. We are changing that. We believe that the internet is more fun – and more powerful – when everyone creates it. This mission has brought us all together, and watching what people build with our tool inspires us every day.
But how do we make that possible? Step one is to primarily focus on phones – the computer that everyone has in their pocket. Next, you design an interface that makes the process of building the internet – building a site – easy, fun, and open-ended.
But how do you fit a full-featured web editor into an iPhone app? You need to start from scratch. From first principles you invent a totally new kind of user interface – a language everyone can understand. Our grid editor is exceptionally simple. You just decide what kind of block you want and move blocks around. It feels like building with Legos. This simplicity holds infinite possibility. A straightforward way to make anything possible, with a phone in hand. (Try it out, build even the most basic site, and be sure to turn the sound on – it’s a bit addicting!)

As developers ourselves, we know firsthand what a pain it is managing environment variables and secrets. It’s something we’ve encountered as individual engineers working on side projects and also as devs on larger teams at larger companies. In fact, we first faced this issue when we first started Doppler, which began as a machine learning marketplace. Whether it was a silent outage due to using our staging Stripe API key in production or figuring out how to securely share our API keys with short-term contractors, we realized this was a universal problem for developers without a universal solution.
We love being able to build a product that not only solves problems we face, but also makes development easier for all engineers. In the same way that Figma abstracts away all of the complexities of Photoshop while still maintaining its power, we want to do the same with Doppler for the dev community and their secrets. We’ve found clear product market fit and are growing quickly: In 2021, we went from serving 918 companies to over 10,000, grew our company size from 3 to 15 and raised a round from Google Ventures and Sequoia. As we continue to grow, there will be plenty of opportunities to work on exciting projects such as pull requests, dynamic secrets, and secrets rotation.
Snapchat’s products support real friendships, and empower people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world, and have fun together. We’re relentless in our pursuit to do the right thing for our Snapchat community, and achieve audacious goals while being kind, smart, and creative. We believe in craftsmanship, the care we put into our work is what delights our customers and makes them love Snap, and we see that translate into our usage. More people use our Snap Camera for AR today than any other company – 300M+ daily active users that create more than 4B Snaps each day. To date, creators across 30 countries have developed Lenses for Spectacles to explore new ways to bring together utility and fun through immersive AR. Snapchat is ranked the #1 happiest platform when compared to others and 90% of Snapchatters say they feel comfortable, happy, and connected when using the platform.

Our team members span the whole spectrum in terms of athletic ability, from new hires who've never run a 5K (but quickly get the running bug) to an Olympic gold medalist, yet we are all united by a shared love for physical challenges. We know how impactful endurance events can be on people’s lives. Our passion to get more people on their feet participating in them transcends the walls of Let’s Do This. If you’ve heard of Serena Williams (the 22-time Grand Slam Champion and G.O.A.T 🙌) or Usain Bolt (world record holder for the 100m, 200m, and 4 x 100m sprint 🥇), they’re fully behind our product, too, and are proud investors of LDT.
Let’s Do This is a passion project. Normally, you either get an opportunity to build one of the biggest companies in the world, or you get an opportunity to work on something that you really love. It’s super rare that you get both. For most of us, we are creating a product that we always wished existed. It’s a beautiful thing to spend every day building a platform for yourself, something your closest friends will use, too… and call it “work.” We feel lucky to be in this position, and are grateful to have awesome people to do it all with.

We’ve built a platform that allows accredited investors to invest in startups with just a few clicks of a button. In doing so, we’ve enabled a new generation of “solo capitalist” VCs, who are able to raise funds and start leading investment rounds into startups as individuals.
We encourage our team members to become investors themselves. We waive platform carry (fees) for our employees when they invest on our website, set up test accounts for employees to dogfood product flows, and provide networking opportunities for team members to start building relationships with the investor community directly.
All of us want to make paid leave a seamless experience for both companies and employees. It is the unifying thread that ties all of us together and why so many people choose to join our team. The company started when our CEO and founder, Deborah, had six close friends take leave. All of them struggled with the paperwork and some made mistakes, didn’t get paid properly, and had to file appeals. She realized if her friends (highly-skilled Harvard and MIT grads with great jobs in tech) were struggling this much with the leave process, chances were so many other people would, too. Thus, Sparrow was born.
No matter the size of the company, employee leave is a complicated process and there’s a clear market fit. The COVID-19 pandemic has only further highlighted the need for Sparrow’s modernized platform, as Deborah shares in this podcast. With so many companies moving to remote work, employees are now living in multiple different cities and states. This makes things even more complicated for companies to manage employee leave because they have to look at multiple regulations in different locations. What’s more, companies have seen a rise in medical leave and mental health leave during the pandemic. With HR teams spread thin, there’s never been a more important time to make real world change and improve people’s lives, and everyone at Sparrow is driven by this mission. (We also receive thank you notes and baby pictures daily – how awesome is that?!)
Operating system for building and growing communities
San Francisco, Paris, or Remote (US/Europe)
Our founders are former developer advocates and community builders themselves, and now we’re developing and delivering the tools to help others create a revolution of highly engaged communities of their own. Since we’re building a tool for managing and growing communities, we rely on our product to help ours grow, too! We developed the Orbit Model, which is our framework for building the most powerful, high-gravity communities. To retain existing members and attract new ones, much of our approach focuses on welcoming and responding to community members across different channels and providing tailored interactions. You can learn more about how we use Orbit to build Orbit here. Check out our Discord server to meet members of our community and see what we discuss.
The applicants who stand out to us the most are people who feel connected to the product and what we’re building in a meaningful way. Maybe they are involved in local or online communities. Or maybe they just have a shared interest in learning more about how the product works and are excited about building this particular tool. If this resonates with you, we’d love to hear from you!

Co-founders Carl Sjogreen and Adrian Graham have been working together for over 15 years. They first met at Google where they worked together as Product Managers. When they left Google, they started a company together that was later acquired by Facebook and spent a few years at Facebook together before leaving to create what is now Seesaw.
Carl and Adrian have always had an interest in the education space but were reluctant to create an education product given neither of them had an education background. Their initial product, Shadow Puppet, was launched with a desire to make it easy for anyone to be able to share photos, information, and ideas, in creative and easy ways on a phone or tablet.
By chance, Shadow Puppet became very popular in the teacher community and led Carl and Adrian to dig deeper into the types of problems educators were facing. Initially, several of the pain points teachers brought up were mechanical. For example, providing an iPad to a classroom where the iPads rotated from class to class was an issue because students weren’t necessarily able to save information on a device. However, from these conversations, it became clear that the product teachers actually wanted was one where students could interact, get excited, and engage with their work on a different level. Out of all of this, Seesaw was born.
Seesaw has since evolved into a platform where teachers can create engaging lessons and activities, students have total creativity in how they interact with and complete those lessons (like drawing, coloring, and recording presentations) building a portfolio of their work over time, and parents can see, participate, (and cherish!) all of it. We are even building our own engaging and equitable, standard-aligned curriculum, Seesaw Lessons. Our teachers know that our lessons are read-to-teach and adapt to any learning setting with multidimensional activities and real-world connections.
One of our team members, Taek Yun, joined Seesaw after seeing how transformative it was for his own family:
“A week before school started for my 7-year-old daughter, the teacher invited parents in and asked us to download two apps: one of which was Seesaw. I did as told, but truthfully didn’t look at either app for several weeks. Then one day, I got an email notification saying my daughter had uploaded a video to Seesaw. I clicked the link, which opened the app, and I watched her narrate a story she had both written and illustrated titled: “How to Make Friends.” I was so thrilled to see her talk so excitedly about, well, how to make friends!
As a parent, the biggest pain point is knowing what my kids are doing in school. Every day, I come home and ask, “How was your day? What did you do in school today?” and the answers are always a quick, one-word: “good,” “fine,” “fun.” But when I got home that day to ask my daughter about “How to Make Friends,” her face lit up and she didn’t even let me finish my question before enthusiastically telling me ALL about it. We talked for over 30 minutes! She was so engaged and so excited. Beyond that, I could see firsthand how her reading and writing improved throughout the school year through the Seesaw app. I knew right then and there that Seesaw was amazing and I wanted to be a part of it.”
The education industry tends to attract people who are human-centric, compassionate, and empathetic. While Seesaw sits at the intersection of education and technology, we’ve found the same to be true for us, too. We love what we’re building and deeply believe that Seesaw not only improves education, but also creates better relationships between teachers, students, and parents, creating a more holistic circle of learning.
Everyone at CoinTracker uses CoinTracker to track their crypto and stay tax compliant (everyone on the team owns cryptocurrency or gets some after joining). It’s also easiest to build an amazing product when you are a user of the product yourself. Our mission to make crypto more accessible, improve the financial system, and democratize wealth and tax management is a unifying driver. We’re saving users thousands of dollars a year in taxes and that’s just the beginning.
As avid users of our own product we have a strong empathy for users and when we hear their struggles with the product, it hits home. Looking forward, crypto will be fragmented across many services and use cases, which makes the work we’re doing more important than ever.
While many of us have experience in personal finance and fintech, it’s not a requirement to join the team. As long as you’re genuinely curious and interested in learning more about crypto and working to increase people’s financial empowerment, we’d love to hear from you!
Often on engineering teams, all the glory goes to the people working on the biggest features and the things that are ultra customer facing. However, we believe stability, reliability, and performance are also important features of a product. So in addition to the obvious value prop of what we’re building (a release communication platform that helps ensure nothing slips through the cracks), we’re also able to show how valuable engineers are internally. It allows companies to celebrate not only big features but also every small win along the way, which are now made transparent. This helps other engineers feel seen and appreciated and improves cross-functional collaboration both internally and with companies’ external partners.
It’s important to us that candidates are similarly bonded by this mission before joining Makelog. We’re solving a complex, interesting problem in a way that’s never been done before, and learning more about it as we go. Our shared passion (and optimism) for tackling this challenge is what keeps us all going!

Everyone at Curai is deeply passionate about our mission and making our product the best it can be. On the engineering team specifically, this manifests itself in the form of attention to detail and passion for making improvements. The team leaves no stone unturned and no pixel unexamined in our efforts to build the absolute best product that we can. Part of the magic at Curai is how directly impactful one can be on real users. Many of our engineers ship code to production within their first few weeks of joining, code that then finds its way into the hands of thousands of real people who are actively using Curai to help improve their health and wellness.
This calling ends up being one of the core reasons why people join the company. For example, Anitha Kannan, founding member and our Head of Machine Learning Research, came over to Curai from Facebook AI Research (FAIR) because of Curai's mission and the chance to build a world-changing product from the ground up. In her words:
"It is a deeply humbling opportunity to touch others' lives at the right time and in ways that matter to them. At Curai, I know that I am focused towards that North Star of equitable healthcare access to all, by joining forces with world-class Curaians who truly care and have the diverse expertise required to realize this goal."
Curiosity that turns into a shared interest around the product is something that bonds everyone at Culture. Our customers rely on our product to create advanced medicines, compostable plastics, agricultural bio-fertilizers, and so much more. Helping bring those bold visions to fruition and promote sustainability is what unites and drives us. It’s this mission to do good in the world that motivates us in our day-to-day work. For example, during the height of the pandemic, our product allowed many people to continue their research at home without missing a beat. When we were able to safely return to the lab, one of the first projects we worked on was a COVID antiviral project. We also helped in the development of a vaccine component.
If you hear ‘biotech’ or ‘bioreactor’ and you have no idea what that is but you’re interested in learning more, you can absolutely do that here. Not only are people willing to take time out of their day to share knowledge with one another, but many also lead classes. For instance, Satshabad, (software engineering manager), led an intro to coding class for the bio team and Dorothy (a hardware engineer) recently started a class on how to CAD. We also have several Slack channels dedicated to keeping up with industry news and offer an educational stipend of $1500 that has been used on things like ML courses, bio conferences, and other work-related classes.
We believe it’s a particularly exciting time to bring cloud software and data science to bioprocessing, because we’re enabling a Cambrian explosion in research. It’s similar to Moore’s law, but for biotech research. There’s a future where every big brand you know is investing in biomaterials and we’re building the platform to speed up that research in a very fundamental way.
Whether you know a ton about biology or can’t remember anything from your high school science class, we’d love to hear from you so long as you have a curiosity to learn more!
Astrological app for self-discovery, mindfulness, and healing
Los Angeles, CA, or Remote (US/Canada)
It’s an exciting time to join CHANI since we’re in the early stages of building our technology. We inherited an MVP product that was built by an agency prior to building an engineering team in-house. While a lot of the work is legacy and needs refactoring, it also means that we can create the kind of engineering culture we want from the ground-up and implement best practices. Engineers have a lot of opportunities to adopt new tech stacks, build applications from scratch, and have the freedom to design their day-to-day operations based on the technical path they're interested in, whether it's frontend, backend, cloud engineering, or DevOps.
Not only are we building something from scratch (and successfully self-funded!), but we’re also doing it with an incredible team. As Milcah puts it, “This is the most fun, diverse, and emotionally intelligent team I've ever had the joy and honor of working with, and they motivate me to do my best work daily.” If this resonates with you, don’t hesitate to reach out!
