About Ladder

We're building the professional community platform for the next generation. Ladder is a place where you can find community, make friends, and explore content for every industry, role, interest, or career stage. We're not a job board or an online resume; we're building the best place for the next generation to meaningfully grow their careers.

As an early employee, you’ll be joining a small, fast-moving team of self-starters, where we’re all passionate about creating delight for our users and customers — all while having fun doing it. We’re currently headquartered in San Francisco, and are backed by world-class consumer internet investors including Forerunner Ventures, Seven Seven Six (776), and Pear VC, as well as founders and executives from Reddit, DoorDash, Product Hunt, and more.

We’re quickly growing, and we encourage you to apply if you’re excited to join us right at an inflection point in our growth. As a platform helping our users navigate their careers, we know that your experience might not perfectly align — we’d love to read your application even if your experience doesn’t exactly align with the job description. Feel free to attach a note letting us know more about your path and what makes you stand out!

The Role

As a Software Engineer, you'll work directly with the founders to build out our engineering team. You'll have complete ownership over the features you build, from ideation and design to development and production. We work in a product-focused environment, where engineers are their own PMs and everyone cares deeply about the end-user. We're constantly pushing high-demand features, and you'll be able to define and implement a variety of products while solving exciting and unique technical challenges surrounding efficiency and optimization.

Minimum requirements:

  • 2+ years of industry experience as a Software Engineer at a high-growth startup or tech company

  • Experience building large-scale, full-stack web apps (we use React, Redux, Firestore)

  • Experience in building and instrumenting high performance and scalable systems

  • Familiarity with NoSQL architecture and data design

  • Focus on software quality, design, testing, and documentation

Bonus points:

  • You love to learn new things — you aren't afraid to test out 5 rich text editors and build your own mini-libraries to fill in the features that existing frameworks lack.

  • You thrive on collaboration and support — you’re not afraid to jump on a call to debug or walk through a challenge at a moment's notice.

  • You have a passion for making professional development and career growth accessible to all!
