About buildspace

we’re the largest place where you give your idea a shot.

and, we mean any idea — a hip-hop album, short film, a novel, some indie software, a youtube channel — whatever.

no idea is too big or too small.

it all starts with nights & weekends.

it's six-weeks where you can start any idea from zero on your nights and weekends, and by the end you'll have your first fans, revenue, downloads, whatever.

in 2023:

  • 12M+ ppl saw our content across Instagram and Twitter.
  • more than 30,000 people joined nights & weekends to work on their own ideas.
  • 1,000 people flew to meet us and others like them for 3-days.

and, we had 1,000 people come out to one of our physical, 3-day events.

to get a sense of what this all looks like in practice, see our video for season four here.

we even built a physical campus for people who want to go full-time on their idea and need place to figure it out -- again, we don't care how big or small the idea is.

overall, it's been a journey.

so, now what?

in 2023, we built up massive distribution. it was all about creating really high-quality content + experiences. but, it was all very one-off.

in 2024, we're fully focused on taking all our learnings and building a world class product. a product that can help millions pursue their passions and build their ideas.

and, we're looking for talented engineers and designers to help us figure it out.

About the role

our vision is to build an alternate system for people that wish to navigate the world by building things they love and pursuing what they’re passionate about.

we’re looking for someone who has really strong web + db architecture skills, ui/ux design skills, and has shipped something that has been used by thousands at least.

big bonus if you’ve used some sort of LLM in one of them :).

things you’ll be doing as a product engineer:

  • shipping things end-to-end confidently
  • talking to people who use those things
  • repeat

this product is still pretty early, so there will be a lot of unknowns.

if you’re excited to help change the way the world sees education, definitely apply.
