Job Description

Sound like you?

  • You have 4+ years of experience maintaining complicated web applications
  • You’re curious to learn and demonstrate the ability to do so very quickly
  • You communicate with clarity and precision, whether with teammates or users
  • You thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject-matter experts
  • You are self-motivated, possess a strong work ethic, and work well independently
  • You identify with Slab’s mission and values

What we value

  • Stay lean – We strive for the greatest possible impact with the fewest number of employees. We empower our teammates with the most leveraged tools and efficient processes.
  • Default to open – We encourage and nurture open exchanges of knowledge and ideas — while acting with respect and regard for each other.
  • Think rigorously – We act and execute after careful thought and examination of known information, while acknowledging the risks we accept in its absence.
  • Say no – We aim to deliver exceptionally high value in a small set of focus areas. We willingly abstain from good ideas to give only the most promising paths the attention they deserve.
  • The best prevails – Whether an idea or an individual, the best will rise to the top at Slab. Ideas we pursue can come from anywhere, and individuals gain responsibilities due to outperformance.
  • Global optimization – We believe that our mission — to make the workplace a source of learning and purpose — is the ultimate priority, above any single project, team, or individual.

  • TypeScript + React
  • GraphQL + Apollo + Absinthe
