Backend Engineer

About Us:
Ditto allows teams to manage their copy from design to production with a single source of truth. Over 3600+ teams (from Fortune 500 companies to startups!) currently use Ditto.

Copy is currently the most under-leveraged aspect of building product, despite being even higher ROI than design and touched by everyone from legal to engineering.

We're backed by incredible investors like Y Combinator, Greycroft, Soma Capital, and founders/top operators from Doordash, Kabam, IFTTT, and Pinterest. We're a fast-moving team, and this role is an opportunity to join an early-stage startup as one of the first employees and directly impact how teams build product.
📍 Location:
San Francisco / Remote 🌉
💰 Compensation:
$125K - $175K, founding engineer equity
⚡️ As one of our first engineers, you'll:
  • architect and build solutions from start to finish
  • build reliable and performant solutions, and improve performance on existing features
  • work with third-party APIs and scaling existing features
  • work directly with founders on roadmap and strategy
  • help us grow the team by interviewing and onboarding future engineers
🤝 We're looking for people that:
  • communicate clearly and empathetically
  • have 3+ years software engineering experience
  • are willing to quickly learn new frameworks/technologies and execute independently
  • are familiar with Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB


We're growing fast, and what you build has the chance to materially impact the workflows of product and design teams.
