Everyone is talking about no-code software these days. There are thousands of applications helping the business user BUILD software or integrate technology into a tech stack. Automaton is first to market with a solution to help the business users RUN and manage their tech stacks. While we've got a solution that serves any market, we've focused on the Marketing and Sales Tech stack (the largest market segment served least by IT and Engineering) first.

We were a TechStars Seattle 2019 company, and have other great investors. We've been featured in GeekWire, PitchBook and Microsoft for Startups. Because of these big customer wins, we are currently on a trajectory like Zapier and MailChimp where we can build this massive category and not need additional funding.

Our product is technically hard - delivering a drag and drop testing framework in a way that makes sense to business users is hard. We've also built a freemium model and open source frame work to speed our integration and custom integration capabilities. Our technical co-founder, Eric Peterson, has built this incredibly hard platform with quality, uptime and scale core to everything, based on the principle he learned in 8 years at Tableau.

*Required Experience: *
8+ years of software development, including JavaScript and Node.js
UI Experience
Focus on quality at scale - DevOps
Creative Problem Solving

Additional Experience:
Open Source
Web Development or Tag Management
Marketing Technologies
Mobile Ap testing

We'd rather have smaller, better team. Our ideal candidate was probably a junior engineer at an incredible company, who grew into managing a team or teams but still writes code. They've been through an acquisition and while they love their team and product, they'd like to have a bigger role earlier in a fast growing company. For the right candidate, we are willing to accommodate a longer transition or a moonlight/advisor to FTE.

Day in the life:
This is a full stack role - you'll spend 50% of time planning,writing stories, managing the team and validating code of the team, and 50% fo the time writing code.


  • Salary depending on experience
  • Stock options
  • Great health and dental insurance benefits
  • Unlimited time off (and the requirement that you take time off)

The right candidate will quickly expand their leadership role, job title, team size and equity position, or you can be the world's best IC/SME if you prefer that direction (we want and need both on our team!).

For insurance and legal reasons, we are only considering candidates in the US - if you apply and are out of the country, we'll immediately decline your applicaiton.
