This is an incredible opportunity for the right individual - within the next year Joist is going to be moving its Product and Engineering teams to San Francisco and you would have the opportunity to be invited to move down with the team and your relocation and visa process funded.

Here are the kind of skills we’re looking for:

Architecture You have a strong understanding of the building blocks of a robust and scalable system. You are able to dissect business problems into well designed systems. You have the experience to know what to build and the discipline to know what not to.

CS Fundamentals You have an understanding of algorithms, data structures, design patterns and persistence technologies. You are able to select the right tool for the right job.

Distributed Systems You know how to build, debug, and monitor independently scalable and autonomous systems. You understand how to leverage messaging to encourage loosely-coupled coordination between systems.

Delivery Focused Code on a laptop doesn’t solve problems. You know that a project is only done once it's delivered and validated. Residential construction is a large problem to tackle. You are driven to complete a project because you know that 5 more problems are waiting to be tackled, and you do it all without sacrificing quality.

Passion Hard problems are not solved overnight. It takes a special kind of attitude and hunger to disrupt an entrenched industry. Your passion is what you share with every teammate at Joist. Passion for technology, passion for change, and passion for building an industry revolutionizing product.
