Job Description

Instrumentl (YC S16) makes finding and applying to grants a breeze for nonprofits and researchers. Our mission is to increase the speed of innovation and social progress by making the funding process more efficient.

The founders have deep domain expertise as biologists, funders and building and running successful startups. Gauri sold her previous company to Airbnb and was their first PM for mobile. Angela and Kat wrote and won millions in funding from some of the most prestigious funding organizations while at the Global Fund, the Smithsonian Institute, and UC Berkeley.

Instrumentl is currently 5 full-time people, so as #6 you’d be able to have epic growth and leadership opportunities. Our ideal candidate would have experience in full-stack development, working with product to elucidate technical requirements, deciding on frameworks and platforms and shepherding software projects from inception to shipping. If you can do all of that, we want you to apply.

Our stack: Ruby on Rails, RSpec, Javascript, Postgres, Git, Heroku, S3 and whatever else you think we'd need!

We're based in the Bay Area and backed by Y Combinator and other fantastic investors.

You should be in (or willing to relocate to) the Bay Area.

Feel free to email with any questions.
