We are looking for a hands-on, product-oriented engineering leader with a “find a way or make a way” attitude excited for our fast-paced environment and remote but highly-collaborative culture.
This opportunity is for someone excited for autonomy, ownership, and breadth of responsibility.
We are a brand new, VC-backed company built for speed:
Small team, fast-paced, we all get a lot done by everyone wearing many hats.
We are serious about optimizing our time and staying focused on the most important goals and outcomes.
We have remote team members and are completely on board with 100% remote work.
We coordinate using a kanban board, hold a daily standup, and mostly communicate via ad hoc video calls and Slack.
Our software uses modern technologies, such as NodeJS and React, and it lives on the Google Cloud Platform.
Build something challenging
This isn't just another CRUD application. Your challenge will be to deliver a highly-available service on top of a dynamic collection of third-party data sources whose priority is anything other than making your job easy. Explore the limits of your own resourcefulness by designing human and automated systems that deliver true reliability in an otherwise unpredictable environment.

Founded in 2019, and backed by a syndicate of top VC's led by General Catalyst, Trellis is on a mission to remove the forms, hassle, and jargon preventing consumers from getting the right insurance with the best value.
We offer elegant, modern software and API's that make it safer and easier for anyone to share private insurance information and for developers to replace complex and effortful user journeys with personalized, delightful experiences.
In the market for personal lines of insurance, where $25+ billion are spent each year just on marketing and distribution, this is a very big deal. If you have car insurance, you can try our demo at trellisconnect.com/demo
