We believe that the best developer tools are ones that observe and learn developers' workflows to provide custom, personalized solutions.Our flagship product, unmock.io, helps developers test integrations with hundreds of popular services, from AWS to Stripe to Hubspot. It does this by creating custom sandbox environments that allow them to prototype and test, in real time, their most mission-critical integrations. People like to work at Meeshkan because the challenges and possibilities for growth are endless.  Every week, the entire team collaboratively decides what parts of the mission are most critical and valuable, and we focus on the avenues about which we are most passionate.For example, a month for any given team member can move between building a machine learning pipeline to honing analytics metrics to public speaking to website design.To make this environment possible, the team is consensual and relaxed about hours, the scope of projects and the direction of the company.  We are very retrospective focused, always identifying what went well and what needs improvement so that our weeks can be as enriching and fulfilling as possible.We are seeking like-minded individuals that feel comfortable taking ownership over the growth and development of a deep tech product addressing the needs of tens of thousands of developers the world over.
