Porter is a Platform as a Service that runs in the user's own cloud. We allow users to deploy applications to their own AWS/GCP account by simply pointing at the code they want to run and automate devops from CI/CD to autoscaling. Under the hood, Porter runs on Kubernetes but abstracts away its complexity from the end user.
We are growing fast, small but formidable, and are at one of the most exciting juncture a startup can be at with the state of our growth. We are building out our founding team in NYC and are looking for people who can share this exciting journey with us.

We're looking for a full stack engineer who is fluent in React/Typescript but comfortable working across the entire stack. This includes building on top of our Go backend as well as working directly with the Kubernetes and Helm APIs. Since Porter is a PaaS that abstracts the complexity of Kubernetes, deeply considered design/architectural decisions are the lifeblood of our platform. The best implementation is not always the most obvious one, so an appetite for rigorously evaluating the tradeoffs of different options is essential.
You will be expected to push critical code on a daily basis while also working on larger features that constantly expand the capabilities of the platform.
We value rate of learning above all else. Full stack experience and fluency with React/TypeScript is expected, but less familiarity with Go/Kubernetes is fine if you're a voracious and self-directed learner. Infrastructure management isn't rocket science, but it does involve thinking and working across multiple levels of abstraction at once. If the idea of wrangling that complexity is exciting and not daunting to you, we'd love to talk. As is the case with most early-stage startups, you should be comfortable with regularly shifting priorities and iterating at a very high (daily) velocity.

Our team is currently based in NYC, but we are open to remote hiring for those who can guarantee overlap with our core working hours (Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm ET). If you're in New York City, we're happy to discuss specific working arrangements.
