Founding Engineering Leader

Remote (USA timezones)

We're looking for an engineering leader and builder who can help us rapidly build out our vision for the Scale product. You'll be part of defining and creating the vision and continue to help build our engineering team and culture over time.

Who we are

At Scale, we are re-inventing the way that people learn and grow at work — by helping them discover, connect, and interact with the actionable guidance and expert coaches they need to succeed.

Our mission is to provide success as service. We help people be more successful at work by mastering strategy, productivity, influence, creativity, and leadership. Our development platform connects people with best-in-class ideas paired with 1:1 coaching from experienced operator-coaches. Today we work with professionals in the technology industry, and will eventually expand across all areas of work where people need more 1:1 help to succeed.

We believe the right insight in the right moment is pivotal for success — yet few people have the support to arrive at those insights.

We've recently raised a pre-seed round to build out the vision for helping people become more successful at navigating the most nuanced challenges at work. We've raised from notable investors experienced in and committed to the future of professional development (including Hiten Shah, Julie Zhuo, Brian Balfour, Steve Schlafman, Lenny Rachitsky, Adam Medros, Li Jin, James Beshara, Lee Jacobs, Cyan Bannister, and other investors we're excited to have on board.)

Scale at its heart is about supporting people to achieve their most ambitious goals, and that's impossible without community. We're building a movement to help people feel more connected, more skilled, and less alone in the face of work challenges.

About The Role

We're looking for a team player who has experience building from the ground up and laying the infrastructure for fast growth. We're pioneering a new interaction model to help unlock coaching at scale, so we'll need your unique perspective and creativity in helping us to build the best possible experience for translating knowledge from leading experts into interactive, multi-media mobile experiences.

As our Founding Engineer, you'll be:

  1. Building the foundations of the Scale experience. You’ll build the platform that reinvents how people get support from a coach. We’re looking for a fullstack builder that is passionate about delivering immersive, consumer-centric experiences and tapping into the latest technologies to enable coaches to help people level up at scale.
  2. Leading product engineering end to end ownership and execution. You’ll be responsible for rapidly shipping high quality features in collaboration with our design and product teams, making technical decisions across the stack.
  3. Shaping our engineering team and culture. You've got experience managing others and are excited to continue to grow as a leader. You'll be driving planning and execution, mentor other team members, set engineering processes and drive meaningful cultural initiatives, shape and drive future hiring efforts
