Job Description

Senior Backend Engineer will power the platform for furnishing a home in an environment where people’s needs, tastes, and even location are constantly changing. The company is building much of the product from scratch and the person in this role will work alongside the other engineers on a small team to focus on user-facing web app and internal tooling for CX, operations, and merchandising teams.

Engineers play a pivotal role in figuring out the destiny of the business. They are equally as involved in dreaming up game-changing ideas for people’s spaces as they are in executing on those ideas.


  • Architect and build core parts of Ruby on Rails back-end to help customers browse, visualize and manage products for their home
  • Build and improve tools to help internal teams deliver a delightful customer experience by managing customer communications, inventory data, order and delivery processes and beyond
  • Use third-party integrations for internal tooling, payments, order last-mile efforts, and data collection
  • Engage with everyone in the company on brainstorming, prioritizing, and developing strategy around marketing, operations, support, and everything else they do here (all the way down to figuring out how to cover the city in stickers)
