Spreadsheets are one of the hardest things you can build — right up there with compilers. To succeed, you need technical excellence on the backend, paired with utter obsessiveness on the frontend, partnered with a genuine empathy for users. As scaffolding for the mind used by more than 1 billion people, spreadsheets are one of the few applications that can have a universal impact on people's daily lives.
Sourcetable is a spreadsheet that syncs to your data. Our goal is to democratize information access so everyone can understand their data and make better decisions. We are a group of experienced founders, engineers and designers on a mission to build products to reach this goal. Execution will demand focus, resourcefulness and creativity. (A good sense of humor helps, but is not required.)
For most people, accessing their data in a spreadsheet is just far too hard using existing solutions. This is such a common yet overlooked problem that we're rebuilding spreadsheets from the ground up with data as a first class citizen. Some might call this excessive, while many simply won't understand. We know it's worth sweating the small stuff when it comes to making things simple.
Our team has a preference for freedom, flexibility and remote work. We have also believe that a certain amount of real-life interaction in an actual office is great for company culture. Thus, it is important that all team members be based in the Bay Area, even though most of our work and coordination is done remotely. Here is how we work:
Sourcetable is funded by top-tier investors and founded by industry veterans. We are a small, experienced team looking to bring on a small group of unique, exceptional individuals. If hard work and hard challenges appeal to you, reach out.
Everyone answers support tickets.
Make it work, make it right, make it fast.
Someone needs to be responsible for making sure that every single user interaction on our app is world-class. That someone will be you.
Sometimes referred to as a "product engineer", we are looking for a software engineer who is passionate about frontend development to join our team at Sourcetable (sourcetable.com), a networked spreadsheet application. If you think like a hacker but push code like an engineer, then you might be the right person for the role.
The primary responsibilities for the role include architecting parts of the frontend of Sourcetable’s spreadsheet application, and generally contributing to feature development (hands on keyboard) to create a great experience for users. We are making it easy for people to model using live data from any database, without learning code or SQL. As an early employee you will be responsible for key parts of the engineering stack and directly involved in early engineering and product decisions.
The role requires creative implementation of specifications while working closely with the rest of the engineering team to ensure awesome outcomes. Sourcetable is an environment where developers can write clean, encapsulated and tested code that results in great products.
We’re looking for engineers who bring new processes and ideas to the organization and can use open source and cloud technologies to solve technical challenges. Sourcetable’s mission is to make data accessible to everyone. We believe great user experience starts at the architectural level.
