As a Full-Stack Software Engineer at Strive you will build products and systems to help managers become leaders. You will work directly with Strive’s engineering manager, CEO and product designer to develop features and functionality that our learners love using and help them improve on their job everyday.


Strive’s mission is to build a university for working learners to help everyone achieve their personal and professional potential.

To start, we are building a personalized and practical management training platform to turn managers into leaders.

At Strive, experienced, vetted coaches teach leadership best practices on our proprietary social learning platform. First-time managers and emerging leaders at big companies (Google, Intuit, LinkedIn, Uber) and high growth startups (Slack, Asana, FiveStars) alike are using and loving Strive (NPS is higher than HBS & Wharton).

Strive was founded in 2017 with an early team from Google, YouTube, Amazon and LinkedIn, and raised a $3.8MM seed round from top investors.

Projects will include both front end and back end web development

Front-end – React
Back-end – Django/Python
Infrastructure – Heroku

2-7 years of software engineering experience, ideally at fast-paced startups
Structured problem solver
High conscientiousness and follow through – organized, detail-oriented and rigorous
Strong work ethic and discipline – ready to both work smart and hard
Clear communicator, particularly in writing
Flexible and highly adaptable in a fast-faced, evolving environment

***WHY CONSIDER THIS ROLE (aka "What's In It For You?")***
- Impact – Strive improves the lives of its students and their direct reports, making work more meaningful and fulfilling for everyone. Our learners love us, and we love them.
- Interesting Challenges and Eng Autonomy – we're building the university of the future. There are many fascinating, meaty product and engineering challenges to solve. As an early software engineer, you'll be challenges to solve these problems yourself, building out an impressive portfolio of work that you'll be able to point to the rest of your career.
- Financial Upside – Strive offers generous equity packages, anchoring at the 90th percentile of startups at its stage, so that all employees share in the upside (you'll receive market rate salary and benefits, too – no "for good" discount).
- Growth – Strive is at a critical inflection point, poised to grow substantially in the next year based on product and company success in 2019. Join now and be a leader that both helps shape that growth and benefits it personally as well.
- Team – It's hard to express this on a JD, but we've built a particularly diverse, thoughtful, supportive, and connected team and tribe working together. Work will be meaningful and enjoyable – we practice what we preach.
