Retool's a fast way of building internal tools (to manage deliveries, for customer support, etc.). We just hit profitability, have raised money from some great investors, including John + Patrick Collison (Stripe), Elad Gil (Color), Nat Friedman (Github), Greg Brockman (OpenAI), etc. We're looking to scale our engineering team from 15 people to around 25 this year.
Our thesis is that all internal tools have the same building blocks (tables, textinputs, dropdowns, etc.). So Retool gives you those building blocks, which you can combine and compose to make any sort of internal tool you might want. That's a lot faster than writing the same custom code, over and over again. Here's a 3 minute demo.
Our actual goal - though - is to build the future of programming. We think building boring, internal enterprise apps represents most of programming. And if you can make building these boring things a lot faster, you have a good shot at becoming what "comes after programming languages".
WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOU
Over the past year our business has been growing at breakneck speed and we’ve been taking on more, and larger, customers. We’re looking to grow our Deployed Engineering team to partner closely with our strategic customers and help them grow on the Retool platform. The ideal candidate for this role should be able to not only think about the growth strategy of an account, but also work with our customers through the technical details of building a complex Retool application. You might spend one day coming up with a strategy to drive adoption of Retool at a Fortune 500 company, and the next day helping a startup build out its entire underwriting workflow. If you’re someone who has strong commercial instincts but also enjoys engineering, you’ll love this role.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
Deployed engineers are responsible for retaining and growing Retool’s most strategic accounts. We’re highly technical and customer obsessed, and we take a solutions first mindset. We work side by side with our customers to identify new use cases, build new Retool applications, and continually improve the core Retool product. From scoping out a new product line for our customers, to running a business review with executives, to building out a critical tool that helps a business operate better, our work is different each day. We leverage our technical expertise and relentless curiosity to transform how software gets built.
WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH
As a deployed engineer you’ll be working cross functionally alongside a talented team of customer success managers, software engineers, marketers, and support engineers to drive Retool adoption across our customer base. You’ll also partner with our sales team to navigate up-sell and renewal conversations.
