About HockeyStack

HockeyStack is an analytics and attribution tool for B2B SaaS. It collects and helps analyze data from all parts of the SaaS customer journey - marketing, sales, and product engagement. Our goal is to make tracking and gaining insights from all this data easier and faster.

About the role
Skills: JavaScript, Node.js, SQL, Software Architecture, Amazon Web Services (AWS)

HockeyStack is the core data platform for B2B revenue teams to get insights from their customer data instantly.

We grew from 0 to 7-figures revenue last year, went through YC, became profitable, and raised from some of the biggest VCs - like General Catalyst and Madrona. We are looking for more engineers to keep up with all the feature requests and expand the product into an all-in-one platform.

Our first engineers were the founding CTO at Chili Piper (took the company to series B) and the 140th employee at Twitter (over 10 years of startup experience).

This is a full-on IC role where you’ll work with the founders directly in-person in SF, push new features every week and build one of the best B2B products out there.

Some of the cool technical work we do:

  • Building integrations with third-party data sources (like CRMs and ad networks) to pull millions of records every day and sync them with our own databases
  • Automatically analyzing data using AI to generate insights from millions of datapoints
  • Building high performing SQL queries to read billions of rows in ad-hoc manner from a fully flexible reporting module
  • Scaling the infra every other month to handle 10x the load

Our backend is built upon Node.js and Express so you need to be very comfortable with Javascript.

We are continuously ingesting data from customer websites and also integrate with 25+ SaaS tools. Basically, we store a lot of data and have to make sense from it all. Our main technologies for the backend include NodeJS, AWS, and ClickHouse.

Interview Process

We don't have a convoluted hiring process.

  1. A screening call - We have a 45 minute screening call where I talk about what we've been up to and give you the chance to talk about your own story.
  2. A more in-depth technical interview - This is a 1-2 hour call that consists of some technical questions and a work sample test where we work on a very small piece of a project together to implement a feature.
  3. Depending on how the technical interview goes, we can have you meet with the rest of the team or send you the offer.
