Variance is an early-stage SaaS company founded by a set of seasoned entrepreneurs with a vision of helping every employee gain mastery over their tools. We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join the initial product team and be a key contributor in developing the first version of our product. This product will be a contextual layer that will assist people with their work delivered on top of other SaaS applications via a browser extension.
As a founding member of our engineering team, you will have a lot of opportunities to build the foundation of our platform, and influence decision making alongside the CTO and founders. You will get to work with a modern tech stack with React, Elixir, and Apollo Client/GraphQL to build out a next-generation SaaS platform. Additionally, there will be opportunities to grow as an engineering leader as the company scales through direct and active mentoring with experienced leaders.
Finally, at Variance, we are looking to develop a culture that balances sophisticated engineering techniques with a pragmatic, user-first and product-centric approach that ascribes to a NJ-style "Worse is Better" philosophy towards software architecture and product priorities. We also value diversity of all kinds as a key ingredient of success and ensure we have better colleagues, better work experience and create a first-class user experience.
