Working closely with DeepBench’s Sales & Operations team, the Engineering team focuses on building new capabilities to meet customer needs. Our technology platform is a foundational piece of our company. The platform is a multi-sided marketplace that we use to match experts with those seeking expertise, and that we can also license to enterprises.


Our current engineering team is comprised of 2 full-stack MIT grad software engineers, a designer who also does front-end work, as well as a senior part-time technical advisor with 10+ years of software architect experience.


You would be joining the engineering team and will be a key member in designing and implementing new core functionality on the platform. Responsibility extends from the frontend to the backend and includes smooth deployment on AWS infrastructure. As a member of this team you will be responsible for delivering best-of-breed applications in a fast-paced, agile environment with great career growth potential. We primarily use React, NodeJS, PostgreSQL, and some Python.


This is a FULL-TIME position based in Boston. Above all else, we are looking for someone who is “start-up ready” and able to thrive in an ambiguous environment, embrace challenges and responsibilities, and grow with the company.


We offer a competitive compensation package depending on experience, including equity.
