About Hatch

We are building a SMS business messaging platform for Small, Medium and Enterprise Brick and Mortar businesses to help them communicate both with customers and teams internally.

About the role

Skills: React

We want you!

We're looking for experienced, super ambitious, product-minded folks to join our rapidly growing engineering team.

We are remote-first

Our main office is located in Richmond, VA, but the majority of our engineers are distributed.

Our tech + how we work

Our frontend is built in react + redux (with a little sugar on top), but we are constantly exploring tech that best fits the needs of our customers and engineers.

We value: communication, documentation, test coverage, documentation, communication, code review, documentation, CI/CD, documentation and communication.

We predominantly communicate over Slack, making little use of email internally. We do daily standups each morning via Google Hangouts. Github is our repo tool of choice and we track progress and requirements via Jira.
