Senior Frontend Engineer at Pyn

Full-time, Sydney sydney engineering full-time
Posted 12 days ago

Have you ever wanted to know what it is like to build a startup from the ground up? This role may be perfect for you.

Who are we?

Our mission is to create calmer organizations. With Pyn, employees get more of the messages they need, and fewer of the ones they don’t. We do this by providing companies with tools for targeted, tailored communications.

Our founders are Jon Williams and Joris Luijke. Jon previously co-founded the technology company Culture Amp. Joris helped scale the culture of Atlassian and Squarespace as their Head of People. Pyn is backed by Accel; an early investor in Facebook, Slack, Dropbox, and many more great companies.

Pyn originates from Sydney, Australia. However, we have employees and customers across the globe. While we work remotely, we still love to get together if and when we can. Ideally our employees have good overlap with the Australian Eastern or Pacifictime zones.

Your impact

As a Frontend Engineer, you’ll be the champion that makes sure our product meets the needs and expectations of our customers. As this champion, you will be talking to our customers every day.

In terms of nuts and bolts: The Pyn Application uses React and GraphQL. The codebase is largely TypeScript and deployed on a serverless AWS infrastructure.

You’ll be working on the frontend, building a foundation for a growing engineering team. We’re changing the way people work, and that requires smart, novel, and iterative approaches to how we guide and delight our customers.

This doesn’t just end at the frontend code and design. You will have the opportunity to work across the stack and the organization. This includes working on the backend, right through to building our culture.

What we offer

At Pyn you will:

  • design and build interfaces for our customers that help them become better communicators.
  • have regular, direct contact with our customers to understand their needs.
  • work directly with the Founders on product direction, strategy, and execution.
  • be in a dynamic remote-work environment, with flexible hours and parental leave.
  • exercise your curiosity and grow technical, product, and people skills.
  • ship code daily (if not hourly!) to get value to customers hands as soon as possible.

… change the way companies communicate with their employees.

What you bring

We recognize that people and careers are a unique journey. Recognizing this, we do not have strict skill and education requirements. Whilst there will always be specific skills we see as useful, we value more the whole of what you can bring to Pyn.

We’re striving to create a diverse environment and encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply. If you’re curious and passionate about improving employee communications, then we’d love to hear from you.
