Pakible (YC W15) is hiring its Lead Software Engineer.

In the last 6 months our growth has pushed our small team farther than we thought possible. We’ve built an entire manufacturing infrastructure from the ground up and put in the hard work every day for the last 2 years to meet every challenge we faced. Customers have flooded us with demand month after month that has forced us to gear up everything.

Everything is ready for the next step, but we need the right engineering leadership to pull it off. If you’re passionate about building, whether it’s frontend or backend, let’s talk.

Our core team is 5 strong and you would be an integral part of that.

Here’s what you’ll do

- Launch a new web product your 1st month - Architect a major platform by your 3rd month - Build and manage your own team within your 1st year - Code frontend and backend systems - Work directly with the founder (backend engineer) on new systems and designs
