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.)
Simple is hard
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.
Bay Area — Mexico City
Our team has a preference for freedom, flexibility and semi-remote work (we meet IRL occasionally). 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:
- Co-working day: 1 day a week IRL (usually Wednesdays).
- Occasional strategy or design sessions with a physical whiteboard.
- Company off-sites.
- Daily standups, coordinated on Pacific Time.
- Aside from that, you can push code from anywhere you like.
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.
Customer service first
Everyone answers support tickets.
Make it work, make it right, make it fast.
Staff Level Full Stack Engineer (React / Python)
We have a strong preference for people who have demonstrated experience working in small startups. AI/ML, growth and business analysis experience a plus.
We are looking for a spectacular engineer who lives and breathes Python and React. If you are someone who understands scalability and performance - join our startup.
Why work with us? We are outperforming and rapidly outpacing the features of the incumbent spreadsheet providers.
What are we building? We are building the world's first AI native spreadsheet.
Think 10x larger, 10x faster, 10x easier computation than anyone can currently do.
Imagine a world where people don’t program, or rely on sophisticated no-code or zero code algorithms (or salespeople slipping people new fads) but a proven, actual, accessible way for people to manage their finances, integrate all of the SaaS tools in the world, and make it easy for people to understand their world in a more meaningful and elegant way. Easy.
You'll be required to take a technical leadership role in specific areas (ML, Permissioning, etc.) and adapt to specific requirements rapidly as they become a priority.
You'll also be maintaining the existing application and architecting many of Sourcetable’s spreadsheet functions.
You'll be responsible for then building out the front-end to complement your backend work and take full responsibility/ownership for each feature.
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 a great product.
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.
