botany.io is the operating system for exceptional software engineering teams.
Botany is a hot new tech start-up, focused on growing and empowering great software developers and engineering managers. Founded in 2019, funded by inspiring customers and some of the best investment firms in the world, we are passionate about this space and hope that you are too.
You can think of Botany like a "Fitbit" or "Apple Health", but for software development habits and workflows.
At Botany, our mission is to empower and grow great software developers and engineering managers. We discover and create growth opportunities to help build habits and track improvement. We help managers scale their attention and effort by automating team operations.
We enable software organizations to maximize remote work, scale their engineering managers, and grow developers within critical “team” skills and behaviors
We welcome and prioritize the needs of people of all ethnicities, races, cultures, genders, and sexual orientations, and hope you’ll consider joining us!
You'll be joining Botany's small but amazing engineering team. This is a pivotal role for our company, and you will be part of the foundation on which we'll continue to build our engineering organization as we grow.
As a Full-stack Engineer joining at this early stage, you'll be in a position to influence the direction of the product, the technologies and processes of the engineering team, and the culture of the company.

What you'll do at Botany.io
We're flexible on the spectrum of responsibilities for this role, but at a minimum, you'll be helping to design and build new features - from idea to shaping to production to measurement and iteration. You also maintain documentation, make sure our developer experience stays smooth, and keep customers happy by fixing issues.
We're an early-stage startup, so there are always opportunities to step outside of the engineering comfort zone. For example, managing customer relationships (our customers mostly have the same roles we do, so this part is pretty fun), working on external documentation and contributing to open-source communities we benefit from.
This is just a bullet-list. We realize that no real person can be represented by a few bullets, so just think of this list as a rough template of experience that we think will help prepare you for this role. Please feel free to apply if they don't all apply to you but you think you'd still be a good fit.
