About Latchel

Latchel supports property management companies and landlords across the US. Our primary service troubleshoots and dispatches 24/7 emergencies for property managers. We work with a company's existing vendors if they have them and provide vendors when their vendors are unavailable or they don't have them. We provide diagnostic, troubleshooting, and dispatching services so property managers have more free time and less frustration. We use technology to improve the experience for renters and vendors and make our operations processes more efficient.

Latchel offers services in several multi-billion dollar industries. Property management is a $72B industry in the US; contractor services are worth hundreds of billions. Both of these industries are underserved by technology and suffer from low market penetration and extreme fragmentation. At Latchel, we believe we understand the reasons for low market penetration and take a different approach than other companies in the field. We'd love to talk to you more about this. Please apply to one of the jobs below so we can talk more about this challenge. Want to learn more about working at Latchel?

About the role

Skills: CSS, HTML, PHP, Angular, PostgreSQL, Amazon Web Services (AWS)

DO YOU WANT TO JOIN A SMALL TEAM AND HAVE A BIG IMPACT? Latchel is a Y Combinator-backed, high growth, and well-funded startup seeking a full stack developer for our rapidly growing engineering team. We are a fully-remote company and invest heavily in creating a strong culture to keep us connected.

We’ve been operating with a lean team of 4 full stack engineers. This is where you come in.

OUR TECHNICAL CHALLENGES We are a tech-enabled operations company. This means our technology is designed to solve real-world operations challenges and simplify the oftentimes ugly interface between technology and the real world.

Our clients are property managers and we act as their 24/7 maintenance department. This means our software has a diverse range of users: the property managers, their tenants, their (and our own) contractors, their clients (the property owners), as well as our in-house operations team and on-demand maintenance troubleshooters.

If you enjoy creating simplicity where others see complexity, this is a great opportunity for you.

OUR TECH STACK Our application is built in: AngularJS (1.6.x), PHP (Laravel framework), PostgreSQL

We heavily utilize: Stripe, Twilio, Sendgrid, AWS

Other tools we use: Slack, Discord, Fullstory, Raygun, Zapier

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES Be an early member of an engineering department within a high growth startup.

Identify where there are needs to improve our process, design, architecture, or anything in the company and help make it better.

Use your skills as an engineer to help Latchel reach its goals.

COMPENSATIONS AND QUALIFICATIONS We are hiring experienced engineers who are capable of working independently and as part of a team. Unfortunately as such a small company we cannot support junior level developers at this time. We expect you to have familiarity and well-developed technical expertise in most of our tech stack and the professional maturity required to work remotely. This generally means 3+ years of experience but this is a guideline not a rule.

We have a unique compensation structure. We let employees pick their preferred mix of salary and equity.

We also have great medical, dental, and vision plans, and offer a 401k with 1:1 matching up to 4% of income.

HOW TO APPLY We won’t ask you to build a project or do work for free. We also promise not to ask you brain teasers or pop quiz questions. Instead we ask you to review some dummy code. Write up your responses as if you were doing a peer review. Before that, we'd love to jump on a short call to tell you more about Latchel and see if we could be a good fit.
