Delivering the best possible human feedback data for our customers requires creative problem solving, and skilled operations and customer engagement. We’ve found that engineers - particularly ones who have started companies in the past or are very interested in starting companies - are often very good at this: they have the natural problem solving abilities to solve complex operational problems and are able to quickly build technical solutions to problems that would otherwise be very difficult. 

The most effective engineers at Scale are consistently people who’ve spent time doing this: building the longer term technical solutions to ops problems requires a deep understanding of how to run a customer project successfully, what the main bottlenecks and challenges are, and what technical solutions would make that easier in practice.

You will:

  • Contribute to projects with a significant impact, driving annual revenue of $XXM+.
  • Receive valuable mentorship and work directly with VPs of Engineering.
