What We're Looking For

Stytch is the platform for user authentication. We create products that make building authentication a delightful experience, both for developers and for end users. We’re looking for a senior frontend engineer to join the Web team. The Web team focuses on improving how developers interact with Stytch’s product and platform. We also maintain the frontend platform at Stytch, making it easy for technical and non-technical stakeholders to contribute to our systems. As a frontend engineer, you’ll partner with product, design, and other engineers to design and build features that empower our customers to build seamless authentication flows.

What Excites You

  • A collaborative environment with a tight feedback loop between the work you do and the impact it has on our customers

  • Designing for the future, and building for the present — you have a vision for the systems you work on, but know how to build incremental milestones, and when to make trade-offs between completeness and utility to get to value fast

  • You love code — you’re incredibly proud of the code you write and review, and like staying close to the systems you own.

  • Putting your stamp on the team — shaping the culture and growing the team through feedback, and working closely with engineering managers to develop the operations and processes that allow the team to execute at the highest level

  • Building products that make developers lives easier — both internally and externally. You’re excited to make our systems easy and safe to use for both internal and external developers.

What Excites Us

  • 3+ years as a frontend or fullstack engineer

  • 2+ years of experience working with React and JavaScript or Typescript

  • Experience building developer tools

  • Experience on a Growth team

What Success Looks Like

  • Technical — build fast and performant features that our customers can depend on

  • Ownership — advocate for projects and solutions that you believe in and ship them to production

  • Leadership — level up your teammates by providing mentorship and guidance

Our Tech Stack

  • React, Typescript. Next.js, react-query, Material UI, and styled-components on the frontend

  • Go for backend services

  • Node and Typescript for web services

  • We run on AWS with Kubernetes for containerization

Expected base salary $155,000-$180,000. The anticipated base salary range is not inclusive of full benefits including equity, health care insurance, time off, paid parental leave, etc. This base salary is accurate based on information at the time of posting. Actual compensation for hired candidates will be determined using a number of factors including experience, skills, and qualifications.

We're looking to hire a GREAT team and that means hiring people who are highly empathetic, ambitious, and excited about building the future of user authentication. You should feel empowered to apply for this role even if your experience doesn't exactly match up to our job description (our job descriptions are directional and not perfect recipes for exactly what we need).

We are committed to building a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workspace where everyone (regardless of age, education, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or any personal characteristics) feels like they belong. We look forward to hearing from you!
