Why be with company?

We all know what a great neighborhood feels like. The sad reality is that every day, our neighborhoods are losing their character, authenticity, and sense of community. From Main Streets to Manhattan, our beloved local businesses are being pushed out at unprecedented rates, replaced with corporate brands or empty storefronts. America is losing its small business backbone—its diversity, energy, and competitive edge.

withco empowers small businesses to become property owners so that they obtain the control, wealth, and permanence only afforded through ownership. We've raised $30M+ from the world's best investors, including Founders Fund, Canaan Partners, Initialized Capital, NFX, and celebrities like Venus Williams and Kevin Durant. Join our mission to make it exciting to be a small business owner in America again!

How you'll help us succeed:

As a member of our engineering team you’ll pair and collaborate with other engineers and product managers as we problem solve technical solutions across the business. From building engaging products for our customers to developing efficient tools for our internal team, you’ll be involved with architecting, coding, and deploying products to production.

Reporting to our Director of Engineering, you'll be mission-critical to withco, building the systems that help us scale our core product and give America’s best small business owners the opportunity to own their real estate. As we grow, you'll build the tooling that helps our small business partners compete with the likes of Whole Foods and Starbucks, and become even more connected with the neighborhood they serve.

What you'll do:

  • Collaborate and pair with other engineers and product managers to identify and problems solve challenges across the business
  • Build high-quality products and tools in an agile fashion that support both our small business partners and our internal team
  • Take ownership of high impact initiatives that improve our data quality, provide reliable access to that data, and help us make better decisions
  • Shape our technical strategy, advocate for best practices, and spike out new technologies

What makes you a great fit:

  • You have 4+ years of experience building high-quality web applications
  • You enjoy working in cross-functional teams, collaborating closely with product, design, and other areas of the business
  • You value automated testing and implementing good testing practices (unit tests, test-driven development)
  • You can work across the entire frontend-to-backend stack to deliver end-to-end solutions
  • You are comfortable with agile processes (e.g. XP, Scrum, Kanban) and engineering practices (e.g. CI/CD, test-driven development, pair programming)
  • You approach problems in a thoughtful way — you value simplicity, justify technical decisions and articulate tradeoffs

Salary Transparency

The estimated base salary range for this position is $140,000-180,000.
It’s important to us that you are an owner. We strive to be highly competitive with our compensation package, which includes base salary, generous early-stage equity, and exceptional benefits. Using industry benchmarking and market best practices, we ensure we are externally competitive and internally fair. The salary range posted may vary based on your knowledge, skills, qualifications, and level of experience as it relates to the job.

Our Values

  • Start Small, Dream Big: We invent, build, and execute to meaningfully improve the lives of our small business partners. We constantly improve and drive towards hitting ambitious goals. We operate from a place of humility and upcycle mistakes into feedback and learnings.

  • Really Own It: We are relentlessly resourceful, "do what we say we'll do", and care about the details. When we see a problem, we roll up our sleeves because it's our responsibility to take care of it. We focus on outcomes, look for opportunity, and celebrate a growth-mindset.

  • Act Fast, Learn Fast: We utilize first principles and diverse perspectives to prioritize the right problems and solutions. We have a bias for action to rapidly and rigorously test hypotheses, show evidence of progress with data, and then double down on what works.

  • Hustle to Honesty: We seek to quickly and courageously get to the truth, especially if it's scary or inconvenient. We assume positive intent and are open, honest, and direct about problems.

Are you with company?

We believe in building a company that puts employees first and helps them live and see our mission in action. To further support your growth and wellbeing at withco, we also offer you:
  • Competitive equity in an early-stage, high-growth company
  • Company paid medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and their dependents
  • Unlimited PTO and Work From Anywhere August
  • Paid parental leave
  • 401k retirement savings plan
  • Commuter and FSA/HSA benefits
  • A flexible work-life policy and company lunch once a week (we’re hybrid and in the office Tuesday to Thursday!)
  • A curriculum of retreats, workshops, and dinners to learn from small business entrepreneurs across America who have perfected their crafts over generations
withco is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We care about building a uniquely diverse, energetic, inclusive, and service-oriented team—one that understands, cares about, and represents the different communities we aim to serve. We especially encourage women, people of color, LGBTQ, and others who are underrepresented in the technology and real estate industries to apply. You’ll be a mission-critical team member.
