Posted a month ago
Why is this role awesome?
You get to build the foundations of this company. No silos + lots of learning opportunities on engineering, product and business. You get to be a part of the decision making process every step of the way and own major parts of the product.

Perfect Recall

Perfect Recall is a Y-combinator startup that records, transcribes, and lets you create clips from your customer calls simply by highlighting transcript text. Embed clips in tools like Slack, Notion, and Asana. Faster and more effective than written notes.

Our customers are mainly product teams, founders and account managers.

About the Role

You'll be engineer #1. You'll have a major role in developing the core product and creating the culture of our engineering team. You'll be working closely with the founders. You'll have full ownership over major features - frontend and backend, from prototype to production. 


  • Build the core product platform, from frontend UI and testing, to APIs, low-level services, and database operations.
  • Be independent and own major features through development and deployment. You'll be responsible for running your code in production.
  • Work directly with customers to solve their problems. Both founders participate in customer support in order to drive empathy for our users and help us build better products.
  • Hold yourself and others to a high standard when working on production systems.

Your qualifications

  • 4+ years of software development experience.
  • Take pride in building elegant and delightful product experiences. 
  • Deep customer empathy, including the desire to speak with customers.

Bonus points

  • Experience with media encoding and delivery at scale.
  • Devops or infrastructure experience.

Our tech stack

  • Frontend: React with Typescript.
  • Backend: Django and Celery deployed with Terraform on AWS. We use Postgres and Redis.

Our Company Culture

(Why you may or may not be excited about joining us)

Raw hours make a difference

Working too many hours doesn't guarantee success, but working too few leads to failure. We expect everyone to put in their best effort every day, but we generally don't expect you to work late evenings or on weekends. We are careful to avoid burnout, but we also don't want to sugarcoat the fact that raw hours can make a huge difference in a startup.

User experience matters

We are building a product that we ourselves would love to use. We go the extra mile by making frontend performance snappy, implementing improvements to the design or interface, and fixing bugs independently when we find them.

Build simple solutions

We want to spend nearly all of our energy on where we can deliver unique value - building new stuff that’s never been done before. Therefore, we choose battle-tested technology when we can, and consider carefully before adding new elements to our tech-stack.
