Who we are:

Glimpse is building a new experiential retail channel where brands place their products into short-term rentals and resorts for guests to try and purchase the product. We are reimagining product discovery where consumers can discover products where they are.

We've raised $6.2M from incredible investors, have a network of 8,000 properties and 15+ brands, and are growing quickly. It's an incredible time to join with unique opportunities to tackle challenges in both going 0-1 and scaling.

We're looking for someone passionate about our vision to come and lead our data platform - from the architecture to our user-facing curation engine.

What you'll be doing at Glimpse:

  • Working 0-1 to define key decisions around architecture and engineering decisions to set a scalable foundation for the Glimpse data platform
  • Leading a team of engineers to evolve the current solution
  • Working directly with founders to define the product roadmap
  • We use modern technologies like Next.JS, Prisma, Postgres, Serverless framework, and AWS.

To take on this challenge, we're looking for someone who:

  • has 4+ years of experience working on data projects and full-stack products
  • has experience working 0-1 and managing an engineering team
  • has experience scaling to thousands of users
  • preferred experience: worked at a startup, led end to end product launches before

Our products include a data-driven curation platform for brands to match with properties, integrations with e-commerce and email marketing tools, user-facing marketplace and shopping products, scrapers, and more. Unique challenges all around!

Interview Process

Typically, we do an initial screen, a technical interview, and a culture fit interview. We prefer contract to hire or working on a project together for both sides to see if it's a good fit.
