Still with us? Great! You've already passed the first test.
Instead, we offer you the chance to be paid well and work remotely with founders who actively encourage a healthy work / life balance.
As an early hire, the more hats you can juggle the easier it is for us to hire you. Especially if you're the self-directed go-getter type that makes smart decisions on your own and doesn't need a ton of guidance.
We're open to working with skilled candidates who can't immediately commit to full time work. If you're currently employed or have other committments, don't let that hold you back from applying. If you're excited to work with us and motivated by our manifesto then we want to hear from you!
Kumu is a bootstrapped data viz platform that helps people understand complex relationships, primarily through network, systems, and stakeholder maps. We’ve spent the past seven years refining Kumu’s visualization platform to make it the premier place for understanding complicated relationships and tackling complex problems. We’ve also launched a series of related products: Weavr and Sticky Studio, and support efforts to crowdsource understanding of complex systems through Undercurrent.
One of our fastest growing revenue streams is Kumu Enterprise, which allows organizations to run Kumu in a virtual machine on dedicated servers. We’re looking for an experienced engineer to lead enterprise development, who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty with VMs, linux, shell scripting, networking, and a parallel product release cycle.
You’ll also work on the hosted version of Kumu to build new features and join our ongoing efforts to modernize the codebase as we continue to migrate from CoffeeScript and Backbone, to TypeScript and React.
We’ve worked with some of the world’s top organizations including The Omidyar Group, Gates Foundation, Hewlett Foundation, USAID, Stanford ChangeLabs, 100Kin10, Democracy Fund, World Bank, Humanity United and more.
You’re probably a great fit if:
On a day-to-day basis you’ll be working with Dan (@_danprince). You’ll be involved throughout the entire development process, from initial brainstorms and sketching to the final stages of testing and release. We move fast and ship often, and try to break work into weekly deliverables to keep everyone’s expectations and progress in check. We do a hangout at the beginning of each week to reconnect and revisit everyone’s immediate priorities.
