“Before you marry a person you should first make them use a computer with slow Internet to see who they really are.” – Will Ferrell.

There are fewer things more frustrating than waiting for a site or app to load. At Padlet, we want to make software to add simplicity, beauty, and joy to life. Frustration is the opposite of that.

That's where you come in. Please help us keep Padlet fast.

Two things make this task particularly challenging:

1. We are used in 200 over countries. We had our first user in Antarctica last year. Many of our users are on slow Internet connections and low CPU devices.

2. We make frequent changes to the product. What's performant today may not be performant tomorrow.

It's a lot of work! Fortunately, we are a small team and you have the carte blanche to own this objective and run with it.

Plus, our engineering culture is still developing. Not only will you make the product faster, you have the power to create a performance culture.

Performance is more than just faster load times. It can be the difference between someone being able to use your technology or not. While all our users are dear to us, we get special satisfaction from users like students in a school in Mongolia.

Your efforts could be the difference between whether those kids in a village in Mongolia have access to life-changing technology or not.
