42 Technologies, a Y Combinator alumnus, is searching for a full-time software engineer to join the team and become a part of the company’s growth journey.
The journey you’ll be joining
42 Technologies is on a journey of improving the way retail companies and brands use their data. The 42 end-to-end analytics stack enables unique visibility to retail operations and helps companies in the $100m to $5bn range to eliminate manual data work - and there’s a lot to show for it! Currently, user engagement is high and there’s no churn despite the pandemic.
Having gone through Y Combinator and a successful seed round, 42 has already managed to become profitable and is currently looking to take the next steps on its growth journey. But even with great growth potential on the horizon, 42 wants to remain the culture-first organization it has become.
When it comes to culture, 42 maintains a no-ego, no-bs environment with sharp focus on its customers and product. 42 is a diverse remote-first team with six different languages spoken in a team of eight. Having gone remote already in 2019, the company has developed strong practices for onboarding new talent, working remotely and building culture. Despite being remote-first, you can expect global company meetups at different locations multiple times a year (when travel is allowed) and frequent virtual team outings just to have fun and to build a great working environment!
42 values a culture of ownership, and you can have a lot of influence on the things you’ll be working on, but consider the below a few examples:
Exposing 42’s unified data warehouse API to the world
Creating a metric notification system (ex: push out-of-stock alerts to Zapier)
Building integrations for authentication systems and customer user directories
Replacing SQL data warehouse with Spark 3.0 + GPUs
Spinning up an image resizing & caching proxy
Building a portal to allow users to monitor the health of their data sources
GPT-3 + 42=?
You can overlap ~4hrs with UTC-7 (PT) time zone for team collaboration
2+ years professional software development experience
Familiarity with SQL and data modeling
Familiarity with cloud platforms like AWS or GCP
Experience building integrations and connectors would be a bonus
You can work well as part of a fast-paced remote-first startup
You’re self-motivated, resourceful and can get things done with minimal direction
Competitive salary and equity package
Opportunities to learn and grow as an early team member
Hardware stipend to get your home office set up
Company games every 2 weeks, IRL (in real life) meetups every 4-6 months
Flexible vacation policy!
