A product is only as good as someone's ability to use it.

As a full-stack engineer, you will take take charge on both frontend and backend parts of our stack to create the best spreadsheet add-on the world has ever seen. Don't worry, you won't be alone in this righteous undertaking. You'll have all the support you'll need along the way.

About Airboxr

We're quite literally changing the way people use spreadsheets today. Imagine all the pain a typical business analyst goes through to create an analysis where they have to collect, clean and organize data from multiple third-party data sources. We remedy that by creating an all powerful spreadsheets add-on that lets you query data across different sources without having to write a single line of code.

We're proudly a remote-first and hands-off company. As long as you can take ownership of your work, you don't need to work on a strict schedule. Our rule for meetings is simple. If something's taking too long to explain over slack, we jump on a call. We also don't believe in unnecessary daily stand ups. We'll all sync up once (maybe twice) a week to make sure everyone's on the same page.

Tech Stack

Our frontend is built with React and MUI, written in Typescript. Our backend APIs are built with NestJS (also written in Typescript) that talk to a PostgreSQL server, hosted on GCP.

You can probably tell that we prefer strongly typed languages and opinionated frameworks with in-built support for a scalable architecture. That's because we want to build a real product that scales well, not a prototype that barely works.

We love functional and/or reactive programming and only kind of like OOP.

Why Join Now?

We're in the early stages of building a revolutionary product, gaining traction quicker than we anticipated. As one of our first full-time hires, you'll be working very closely with the founders and will get a front-row seat for this very exciting startup journey that lies ahead of us.

Also, we're also backed by Entrepreneur First.

Requirements

What matters most to us is a learner's mindset and some real development experience (past jobs, projects, etc) you can draw on. It will help if you're familiar with most of the following things already:

  • Opinionated server-side application development frameworks
  • SQL and ORMs
  • Typescript & React

The following is also important, given that we'll be collaborating remotely:

  • Familiarity and comfort with online communication through multiple channels (Slack, Zoom etc.).
  • Ability to communicate thoughts and opinions clearly in written and verbal communications.
  • Ability to think critically and form opinions based on information available.

Ideally you have about 2 years of experience, but we won't hold it against you if you don't.

Remote Restrictions

  • Workday must overlap by at least 4 hours with Singapore
