Edvo is hiring for our 3rd and 4th engineers! Let us know if you resonate and wanna learn more!
What is Edvo?
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the amount of information you wish you understood? Have you ever tried to read something and have difficulty focusing or “noisy” thoughts? How many browser tabs do you have open right now?
If we're speaking to your soul, we're not surprised. We are barraged every day with noise, with too little time, and way too many ill-suited tools to cope with it.
At Edvo, we’re creating a new way for people to take control of their destiny by making better sense of the world and thinking for themselves. We aim to help people think critically, better organize thoughts, take control of their learning, and make better sense of the increasingly complex world around them.
It’s not enough to just build a good product – we must also carefully consider first-principles of cognitive science, human-computer-interaction, privacy, trust and business ethics. Making sense of the world and organizing your digital life within it is about connections, and we aim to foster an ecosystem that’s bigger than Edvo itself.
What does it mean to be an Edvo developer?
We’re looking for versatile and “full-stack” developers who enjoy getting their hands dirty. We're an early-stage team so you'll be working closely with your design and product team members to plan, architect, and implement our core product. As an early engineer, you’ll have a prominent voice in all engineering decisions.
We believe that a strong software development team requires soft skills every bit as much as coding skills. We're looking for unusually skilled and emotionally-intelligent communicators. We ask questions early and often. We don’t know things – we perceive things. We don’t need to have good answers, we strive to have good questions. We're seeking team members who are open-minded and committed to learning.
Our development environment is in React / Typescript. We’re considering including Rust and WASM in the mix as we scale. You should be a polyglot programmer, atleast aspirationally. We believe some tools are useful for a given job, but we do not believe there are any objectively correct tools.
What's it like to work at Edvo?
We're remote-first, so you can work from anywhere in the world. We maintain core working hours of 11AM to 3PM Pacific, when we're all online and available at the same time. We strive to be clear in our communication and our foundation is based on trust.
We lead with empathy. We are problem solvers and we recognize that the first step is to have an intimate understanding of our users' unique experiences. Whether it’s discussing feedback with our community or working with a team member on a project, we always listen and ask questions. We aren’t one-size-fits-all; we provide thoughtful solutions, celebrate differences, and commit to collaboration.
We believe that the way we think is influenced by the way we learn. If we can build tools for helping people learn better and expand their knowledge more effectively, we can help them think better, make fewer mistakes, and navigate life with confidence.
