About Showdrop

Showdrop is building the future of physical product discovery and sampling for the e-commerce era.

We just closed a pre-seed investment round from a stellar group of VCs and angels, and are looking to ramp up the team quickly to bring our solution to market!

Responsibilities

  • Be a thinking partner to the Showdrop leadership team, including actively participating in roadmapping and architecture discussions
  • Manage all tech development, including in-house and outsourced software development and data engineering
  • Produce high-quality, production-ready, readable, maintainable code
  • Lead large projects from initial inception to production
  • Hire, manage, mentor, & grow the Showdrop engineering team
  • Be core early member of Showdrop team (first 5 employees) that shapes and implements our vision for a new model of IRL product discovery and sampling


You’re someone who:

  • Codes and wants to code
  • Likes to move quickly and ship to customers
  • Has 4+ years experience with Ruby on Rails or Django
  • Can work across the stack — infrastructure, database, backend, frontend 
  • Has experience building, deploying and supporting software in production
  • 1-9
