About Runway

Runway is building a first-of-its-kind tool for teams to track, automate, and collaborate on their mobile app releases.

Managing mobile app updates has typically been a frustrating and costly exercise of performing tasks across a range of tools (e.g., GitHub, Jira, your CI environment, the command line), herding cats on Slack to get everyone on the same page, and manually updating a 50-line release spreadsheet. And there’s often even more inefficiency than teams realize, from a steady drip of small tasks and context-switching.

The Runway team has firsthand experience with the problem. We’ve designed, developed, and released native mobile apps at companies like Rent the Runway, Kickstarter, and ClassPass, and we came to recognize that there was an opportunity to streamline and automate much of the process; to go far beyond traditional CI/CD workflows in fostering meaningful collaboration, de-risking development, and empowering teams to spend their time building great features instead of managing releases.

About the role

Runway is building a first-of-its-kind tool for teams to track, automate, and collaborate on their mobile app releases. We're already used by industry-leading mobile teams to ship some of your favorite apps for food delivery, fitness, finance, and more!

We’re a small but mighty team, and there’s a lot to do. From building out new release automations, to adding support for even more third-party integrations, to diving into entirely greenfield new areas of the platform, you’ll be working closely with the rest of the team from inception to design, planning and implementation.

We build a lot of features, and we ship them fast. As a member of the team, you’ll need to develop a finely tuned sense of prioritization - when to make tradeoffs, when to write tests, and all while keeping the end-user experience top of mind. You’ll need to be comfortable rolling with changes, owning features end-to-end, and learning on the fly when needed.

We’re a distributed team with an NYC center of gravity. Our backend is written in Go, and our web application in React with Typescript (but when it comes to new hires and their prior experience, we're totally language-agnostic – we're looking for awesome engineers, period).

About you

We’re looking for people that are humble, hard working, and good team players.

There’s no room for big egos at a small startup. Everyone pitches in and is ready to roll up their sleeves to do anything and everything they can to carry the team forward. We help each other out, trust each other’s skills, and aren’t afraid to take the lead on things when necessary.

This is not a FAANG job. If you’re looking for a place where you can coast, this isn’t it. Everyone on the team works hard, learns something new every day, and gets things done. You won’t be building a small toggle hidden deep in the bowels of a monolith product. You’ll be valued, respected, and your work will matter.

We’re looking for great engineers, period. It doesn’t matter which parts of the stack you usually work in, as long as you’re keen to learn parts of the stack you’re less familiar with and to contribute across the board. And if you have experience with mobile apps, that’s a bonus – we love geeking out about the nuances of building & shipping mobile apps, and we believe that translates to an even better experience for our users.
