Employment type

About Paragraph

Paragraph is a web3-native publishing & newsletter platform that provides creators with new and innovative ways of building communities, connecting with their audience, and monetizing their content. We're supercharging regular email & blogs with web3-native features: permanent & uncensorable storage; on-chain, portable social graphs; crypto payment rails; wallet-to-wallet newsletters; and more.

We're helping thousands of creators - from DAOs, to NFT communities, to traditional journalists - and we're backed by some of the top investors in crypto.

How we work

We're remote-first.

Remote work is the future, so we're committed to doing it right - and right from the start. The freedom to work remotely allows for deeper and more meaningful work, so we're a distributed team that places an emphasis on excellent asynchronous communication to collaborate. We're open to workers in all timezones.

We're product-focused and customer-obsessed.

We're building products that are simple, beautiful, and useful. We care deeply about the quality of our work - down to the last pixel - and we don't cut corners or make sacrifies to ship. We're passionate about building great software.

We firmly believe in good work-life balance.

People work their best when they're rested, happy, and fulfilled. Work on your own schedule with flexible work hours, and take as much vacation as you need to fully disconnect and recharge (Colin regularly takes 4+ weeks vacation a year).

About the job

We're looking for a mid-level, senior-level, or higher fullstack software engineer to join our team.

You'll be self-directed, and empowered to make engineering and product decisions. You'd spend your time working on interesting user-facing features (including both the frontend and corresponding backend changes), and solving technical challenges that'll help shape the future of our products.

Since we're a very small team, we all wear many hats, so beyond software engineering you'd also be participating in growth strategy design & execution, managing GitHub issues, writing and improving documentation for the tools we make, working directly with customers, and troubleshooting problems for users in places like Twitter and Discord.

About you

We don't have any hard requirements for what we're looking for, so even if you don't meet the criteria listed here but still think you'd be a great fit, we'd love to hear from you.

We're looking for full-stack engineers that have experience with frontend and backend, and aren't afraid to make bold decisions and influence company strategy. Our stack is entirely in Typescript. We use Next.js (Redux, TailwindCSS) and Node.js (Express). We deploy on Vercel, GCP, and Fly.io, and we rely heavily on GitHub and Notion.

If you're passionate about the creator economy, cryptocurrency, web3, and writing/publishing/blogging, that'd be even better.

More important than specific technical skills though is that you're a strong problem solver who loves to learn - we aren't experts in everything and we don't expect you to be either.
