We are currently looking for this position to be filled in August 2020. We'd like to ask you a few questions to jump-start the process and get to know you a bit. We are also currently receiving a lot of applications, so you may not hear from us immediately. Good luck with the hiring process and we'll be in touch.
We are Invisible’s Technologies Team. We solve problems at scale so they never happen again. At our best, we solve problems before they happen. How?
-- Invisible is a world-changing company and the Technologies Team is responsible for creating the systems that will launch Invisible into the stratosphere
-- Exponential gains from systems > Short term linear work > Systems for system's sake
-- Consistent feedback is key - we are addicted to learning and getting better
-- What one of us knows, all of us should know
-- Every new mistake is a learning opportunity
-- Distributed approaches and centralized intelligence merge. Each teammate is constantly innovating and trying something new. Every mistake is prevented by all. Every success is learned by all.
-- Each of us contains the sum of the knowledge, intelligence, and creativity of our entire team.
-- We evolve and mutate constantly like an organism, identifying successful and problematic tactics and incorporating ideas from any source.
-- Engineers who love to design and build beautiful code. Fast.
-- Polymaths and independent thinkers
-- Someone who is unlike anyone else on the team
-- Systemic improvement - Don’t just follow orders. Question them. Question everything. Make improvements to how we work, not just our team, but the entire company.
-- Systems thinking - Build systems that scale, optimize around constraints, architect towards the future, and create beautiful solutions to difficult problems
-- Shipping - Deliver results with speed and quality
-- Teamwork - A culture where personal and team growth thrive and we become better every single week
-- Growth - Tenaciously improve yourself day after day at an exponential rate, and bring the company with you
Specifically, a Senior Engineer will
-- RP the engineering for the project
-- Lead the architecture/skeleton code writing
-- Lead the implementation plan creation
-- Review code daily and be able to pair often
-- Mentor the engineers on the squad
-- Research and move other technology forward
-- Experience in different programming paradigms, especially functional programming
-- React.js (functional components + hooks), Apollo Graphql, Next.js
-- Node.js, TypeScript, lodash/fp, async/await, Postgresql, Redis, Kafka
-- share your Github/Gitlab/StackOverflow or similar profiles - if you are contributing to an open source project/repositories - why would you hold back - proudly flaunt them
-- You will work on the most important problem - We always solve the most important problem and prioritize to make effective use of our time.
-- You will never do the same thing twice - Do it once, learn, systematize, automate, upgrade. We are exponential.
-- You will never work on a problem that should have been prevented - Prioritize, execute, and prevent future problems.
-- You will systematize or document most things - Creating systems checks if you really understand what you're doing, allows others to analyze for improvements, and means the entire team upgrades together.
-- You will make mistakes - That’s okay. This is how we learn. Prevent the mistake from happening again.
-- You will be empowered and encouraged to act with creativity - We have no limits. Every team member is empowered to upgrade our collective intelligence with new ideas. Act with moxie. Act with creativity. Act with inspiration.
“The culture is imbued with romantic capitalist values. These are just a few:
“Do it because you want to do something on the edge of hard and impossible. Do it if you are the unstoppable force seeking an immovable object. You want to see what you’re made of. Do it if you want to test your limits: your ability to create order in chaos, to operate under extreme stress, to achieve impossible goals…
Do it because you personally want a synthetic intelligence. Do it because you want to solve the biggest problem in the world: wasted time. Do it if you want humans to spend less time doing robotic jobs, and more time being creative and strategic.”
So what do you say, will you join us?
