Avenue (W21)
Command center for operations teams

About Avenue

Avenue is building the control center for operations. We're on a mission to scale the next generation of ops-driven companies. Our customers trust Avenue to monitor and activate their teams, and we work tirelessly to build great products that do just that.

We believe operators are the glue between the product that companies build and the actual service they deliver. Ops teams are thrown into messy, loosely-defined problems and act as front-line firefighters. The tools that exist to manage their work are either reactive, inflexible, or stale. They resolve to rotating schedules of dashboard-sweeps to catch important moments and reference poorly-maintained Google Docs for process management.

We're a hard-working and passionate team with experience at Uber, Amazon, Google, Bridgewater and Apple and are looking for new members who love building product, want to work hard, and will collaborate with us in shaping the culture of our organization.

About the role

Skills: Node.js, React, TypeScript, Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Avenue is hiring early full-stack engineers to help scale the next generation of ops-driven companies. Come join our NYC-based team!

We're a well-funded seed-stage company backed by Y Combinator, Lachy Groom, and many other great partners.

About You

  1. Product-minded.  You have a sense for great user experience and feel for when something is off. You love talking to customers and building for them.
  2. Get a lot done.  You enjoy all aspects of building a product and are comfortable moving across the stack when necessary. You problem solve independently and enjoy figuring stuff out.
  3. High conviction.  When you commit to something, you're in all the way. You're opinionated, but you know when to disagree and commit. Mediocrity is the worst of all possible outcomes.
