Today there’s millions of e-commerce businesses built on platforms like Shopify but developing websites for them is still a terrible experience. Engineers have to be involved in every change and can’t even use basic frameworks like React.
Our product is a drag-and-drop editor for visually building React applications, starting with e-commerce. It’s backed by our super-flexible content management system and commerce APIs which integrates with 3rd-party platforms, including product, subscription, and user-defined data.
Our founders have worked together for 10+ years and previously held principal engineer + management roles at companies like Uber, Plangrid, Autodesk, and Yelp. Replo is backed by Y Combinator and folks in the e-commerce and open-source community, including the creator of NextJS.
Replo enables companies to build websites with less code. The team is building the world’s first platform and marketplace for creating and distributing the UI building blocks of the web — enabling commercial teams to build ultra-customizable websites like lego blocks.
At its core, Replo is building the world's first web component app store + visual editor built on React
We're open to remote positions, but for this role, we prefer if you're located in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, or within +/- 3 hours of these timezones.
Replo was founded by Yuxin and Noah in 2021. They've been friends since freshmen year studying Computer Science at Cal. They've raised over $2.6M from YCombinator, Infinity Ventures, MAGIC Fund, as well as the founders of NextJS/Vercel. Noah was previously principal engineer at Plangrid, Yuxin ran the Commerce team at Uber.
Build products across our stack (using React, Typescript, and more) that enable our customers to build differentiated user experiences online

At Replo, you won’t just be writing the next internal tool at a big-tech company. We’re building a highly distributed, scalable system to power the next-generation of online commerce. If this sounds interesting to you, we’d love to chat!
You'll chat with Noah, our co-founder and CTO, so we can learn more about your background and experience and determine whether Replo would be a great fit.
You'll do a 1-hour pair-programming exercise with one of our engineers where you'll implement a feature for a small example app. The goal will be to get insight into your problem-solving ability and learn more about how you think about programming and your experience with React and frontend technologies
You'll do two more interviews - another engineering/programming exercise and a non-coding interview with our other co-founder. After this, it's reference checks and offer stage!
