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
Thousands of customers use Retool to power their businesses with custom internal software, from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies. As quickly as we’re growing, we’ve barely scratched the surface: we have a huge opportunity to share the value of Retool, the impact the product has for our customers, and how we’re changing the way internal tools are built.
For most, our web presence is the first impression of Retool. No matter where a visitor lands—retool.com, our blog, the community, documentation—we want to create a cohesive interactive experience that reflects the power, flexibility, and speed of the Retool product.
We have both high expectations and a demanding, technically-savvy audience of developers. We expect our web presence to be highly informative, eminently usable, and visually stunning. Most of all, it should meet our visitors at their point of need and provide a seamless transition to immediately building software inside of Retool.
To help lead this vision, we’re looking for a full-stack web engineer interested in operating at the intersection of design, code, and content.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
As the first engineer focused on Retool’s web presence, you’ll own implementation of projects across all of our web touch points (retool.com, our blog, the community, documentation, and more) from start to finish. Working with internal and external stakeholders, you’ll collaborate on design approaches and communicate technical trade-offs. You’ll audit our current tech stack and content management infrastructure and design a path forward that scales with our aggressive goals and makes it easier for others to contribute.
Most importantly, you’ll sweat the details: whether it’s implementing a complex React animation, shaving seconds off of time to interactive, or improving the reliability of the build pipeline.
WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH
As the first engineer focused on Retool’s web presence, you’ll be partnering closely with design, marketing, and growth to build a robust platform that helps us bring new features to market, deliver content to our customers and community, and ensure that visitors can discover and learn about Retool.
You’ll be joining a broader team of Retools who are passionate about serving our customers and enjoy collaborating with each other to build a company from the ground up.
