We are a remote startup (headquartered in Canada) building a smart, curious, and driven team thatโ€™s making software to help sales reps sell better.\n\nProspect is a lead generation app that helps you find contact data right inside your browser in real-time. The best sales teams from the top tech companies in the world use Prospect to crush their sales targets.\n\n**MORE ABOUT US**\n\nWe are currently a team of 11 people -- you will be #12 ๐Ÿ™‚\n\nWe are self-funded and profitable (no VCs or investors). We did this because we want to do whatโ€™s best for our team and customers.\n\nWe have sane working hours (~8 hours/day), donโ€™t work weekends, and take ample time off. We donโ€™t have any โ€œmanagersโ€ and we rarely do any internal meetings.\n\n**ABOUT YOU**\n\nYou enjoy writing beautiful code. You care not just about whether the code works, but you think deeply about how well it performs, and how it will be understood by future developers.\n\nYou like shipping things. You realize that building excellent products is a marathon, not a sprint, and regularly make improvements in iterations.\n\nYou are an excellent communicator. You realize that working remotely requires thoughtful communication and you do so through great written communication.\n\nYou self-manage. You enjoy taking a goal and figuring out how to ship it without heavy direction and regular check-ins.\n\nYou are product and customer-centric. Whether it is a bug fix, perf improvement, or a new feature, you realize that every line of code is an opportunity to make a userโ€™s experience better.\n\n**OUR ENGINEERING TEAM RIGHT NOW**\n\nWe are currently a team of 7 engineers. Our roles are divided based on the projects we work on.\n\nWe work in 4-week long development cycles in which we focus on adding new features, fixing bugs, or making improvements.

We are looking for someone to take real ownership of one or two core features within the first year. You will own some extremely important parts of our application that serve thousands of customers. \n\nWe prioritize our projects based on what customers are requesting the most. Some things that you might work on include:\n\n- Data: Scale our real-time data discovery engine to process 5x-10x more volume\n- DevOps: Improve our CI pipeline by adding static analysis and improving tests\n- Integrations: Add features to and revamp our Salesforce integration\n- Monitoring: Add metrics and real-time alerts for core application functionality\n- Upgrades: Migrate to the latest versions of core dependencies, such as PostgreSQL\n\n**MUST HAVES**\n\n- 3-5+ years of Java programming experience\n- Experience with PostgreSQL and handling large amounts of data\n- We donโ€™t require a degree but you should have demonstrated the ability to learn new things quickly (either self-learned, freelance projects, or from school) \n\n**BONUS NICE-TO-HAVES**\n\n- Past remote work experience \n- Worked at a tech startup or a small company before\n- Experience with modern infrastructure tools such as using Terraform \n- Experience with modern Java frameworks without the enterprise bloat\n- A knack for taking a metrics-driven approach using Grafana or similar\n\n**COMPENSATION AND PERKS**\n\n- Salary: $90,000 - $120,000 Canadian dollars / year\n- $1,500 annual self-continued learning budget\n- $1,000+ annual travel spending allowance (money to spend during your vacation)\n- 4 weeks paid time off\n- Fridays off every July and August (enjoy the summer! โ˜€๏ธ)\n- Benefits (health, dental, etc) through our company HSA (for people living in Canada) \n\n#Salary or Compensation\n$90,000 — $120,000\n\n\n#Location\n๐ŸŒ Worldwide
