Engineers at Medium

Who are we?

We are the engineering team at Medium. Engineering is deeply integrated into the product development process. We organize in cross-functional, mission-driven teams, working side-by-side with product and design. This is a team sport. We are better together; we support each other, ask for help, and collaborate.

We aspire to simple, yet powerful, systems that enable unique experiences and interactions. We prioritize quick, iterative progress, without losing sight of the big picture or compromising quality. We build best-in-class editors across web and mobile. We develop data processing systems that provide product insight and enable a new currency of attention. We build the systems that give voice to ideas and stories across the globe. We take that responsibility seriously and we have a lot of fun along the way!

Who are you?

You’ve built, launched, and maintained mobile and web services, and have learned many lessons along the way. You are flexible, proactive, and curious. You believe in the craft of software engineering, but are pragmatic and are driven to make a positive change in the world.

While you draw inspiration from prior art, you don’t accept the status quo and challenge yourself to come up with unique solutions. In the same way, you respectfully challenge your peers, and welcome being challenged. You are willing to learn, and willing to help us learn.

We have positions at Medium’s HQ in San Francisco. We have a multinational team and will consider people from around the world who are willing to relocate.

We’d love to hear from you. Please send us a résumé with cover letter.
