About Squad
Squad is a NYC-based tech startup disrupting the consumer social space. Our app is a voice-only, intimate social experience that makes it super easy (and fun!) to stay close with your close friends. Our launch was covered by TechCrunch.

We’re backed by the who’s who of Silicon Valley, including top venture capitalists, and the founders of notable companies like Slack, Zillow, Away, Box and StichFix. We just completed a fundraising round, and are looking to hire the next wave of engineers, product managers and data analysts ASAP to drive our product to the next level.

As an early senior engineer on our team, you’ll have the opportunity to be an integral part of our product growth story. From owning certain parts of the tech stack, to implementing bomb ass features on a daily and weekly basis, you will be a very influential part of our growing engineering organization. There will also be lots of opportunities to lead and build a foundation for the tech team. As the company grows, so will you! 💪
