  • You will contribute to our long term product road map and be involved in product decisions.
  • You will be play a critical role helping build TaxProper's engineering culture, establishing best practices for development and helping to systemize our existing engineering practices.

Secondary Responsibility

Flexibility to help with product development and help putting out all of the fires that regularly come up in a startup:

  • If we need more focus on an another product area, you will be okay pitching in.
  • You need to be comfortable pitching in with operational work, including filing property tax appeals. Everyone on the team is required to help with customer support.
  • You'll need to contribute to cross-functional conversations, including helping make strategy, product, and marketing decisions

Culture

As one of the TaxProper’s early hires, cultural fit is extremely important. You will need the following characteristics:

  • Analytical. We want an engineer managing growth because we view customer acquisition as a technical challenge. You can and will be conducting channel experiments rigorously and empirically, but the bulk of your budget will be conditional on efficiency.
  • Generalist. You should be willing to roll up their sleeves and do the work, and understand that the day-to-day of a startup can change rapidly. If we need more focus on an enterprise product, you will be okay pitching in.
  • Owner. You are willing to take full ownership of your area and will be an advocate for it with the rest of the team.
  • Entrepreneurial. You have either started your own companies or you have taken on real career risks. Your background indicates that you are willing to strike out on your own and you are not dependent on others creating structure for you.
  • Chicago. You are already based in Chicago or are willing to relocate. We are willing to work with you to make this happen and understand early on things might be difficult due to COVID-19
