We’re looking for an experienced engineer who wants to contribute to our growing company. This is a rare opportunity to join a successful startup that is already rapidly growing, but still has room for you to make a career-changing difference for the business.


• Implement new product features using Ruby, JavaScript, PostgreSQL, and Redis. 
• Build new integrations with third party APIs, and troubleshoot and maintain them. 
• Extend and maintain the Privy platform API. 
• Make and explain design trade-offs, mentor junior engineers, and prioritize bugs.


• We do thorough code reviews using GitHub pull requests. We aim for high code quality with a lightweight process. 
• We practice rapid iteration - if it’s been reviewed and makes production better, deploy to production. 
• Before coding, we sweat the details and edge cases, debate the design, and disagree openly.
• We use the best tools money can buy, and focus on solving real problems for customers, not re-inventing the wheel. 
• We have a growth mindset and consider growth a part of every engineer's job, with dedicated investment time and resources to match.
• For in inside look at the engineering team culture, visit Privy's Engineering Blog.


• At least 2 years professional software development experience.

• Demonstrated mastery in at least one programming language. 
• Communicate ideas clearly, and write intelligently. 
• Able to work onsite at our Boston, MA office. Only local candidates will be considered. 
• Existing US work authorization required - sorry, no sponsorship available.

We're builders and we want to work with other builders. Many of us create music, publish art, maintain open source libraries, write blogs, found businesses, and build products.


• Competitive salary + meaningful equity, in addition to standard perks like 401k plan 
• 100% of health insurance & dental premiums covered 
• Unlimited vacation & sick time (with 2 weeks/year minimum and $1,000 vacation bonus) 
• Free weekly team lunches
