Know Your Company
Chicago, IL, United States
Dear programmer who cares about doing meaningful work,
If your dream is to grow a product with a small team that already has its legs under them, and have a big impact on a problem that matters, I’ve got some good news for you…we’re hiring a Rails programmer at Know Your Company.
First, a quick introduction.
My name is Claire Lew, and I’m the CEO of Know Your Company. It’s nice to meet you. My company, Know Your Company, is a tool that helps business owners with 25 to 75 employees get to know their employees better. Companies like Airbnb and Kickstarter use Know Your Company each week to improve their company culture.
Our software was originally built by Basecamp (formerly 37signals) in early 2013. Know Your Company ended up becoming so successful as a product, Basecamp decided to spin it off into its own company. In 2014, I became the new CEO of Know Your Company.
Our mission is to help people become happier at work. We believe this happens when people can communicate openly and honestly at work. As the CEO, this is also my own personal mission. I’ve felt the pain of working in a company where Know Your Company didn’t exist. Since then, I’ve made it my life’s work to help others not feel the same way.
So what’s the job?
You’ll be a one-person product team. As our sole programmer, responsible for building, improving, and maintaining Know Your Company as a product end-to-end. We’ll riff on feature concepts together, drawing from conversations you and I have had with customers. You’ll uncover the underlying jobs-to-be-done in the situations they’re facing and ensure the concepts we’ve discuss align with our overall vision for the product. Then you’ll take those concepts from sketches to code to production. What you ship will be used by over 12,000+ employees in over 15 different countries every single day.
There’s no project manager, no design team, and no user research team here at Know Your Company. It’s you and me thinking, experimenting, playing detective on how to help CEOs and employees get more out of the product. No marching orders here either
