This role is unusual in that the primary focus is day-to-day engineering on customer-facing features, but it could also involve guiding our frontend architecture work. It’s a great position for somebody who loves feature development or who has been working at the architecture level and misses hands-on development.

This is a highly collaborative role, requiring partnership with nearly all of our engineering teams. In addition, the architecture work in particular involves guiding other engineers to improve their effectiveness, approaching them in partnership. We value people who understand the difference between process and bureaucracy—and who can figure out what we need to build up our knowledge across engineering.

You’ll help shape a growing organization, and your participation will help us level up.

What you’ll do

  • Contribute as an engineer to new product features, for example, productizing our internal developer tools and dashboards so that customers can benefit from them
  • Partner with existing teams to guide frontend architecture planning across the company
  • Serve as a go-to source when people need help leveling up their frontend skills or problem solving related issues
  • Improve our test tooling to ensure our frontend products scale through more sustainable rapid development cycles

What you’ll likely have 

  • 8+ years of industry frontend engineering experience, possibly including frontend architect development
  • In-depth knowledge of React and TypeScript and flexibility with other frontend frameworks
  • Fluency with HTML, CSS, Javascript, and other related web technologies
  • Familiarity with cross-browser compatibility, accessibility, and browser networking, and browser APIs
  • Experience with unit and integration testing. (We currently use Cypress, Jest and Puppeteer, but you don’t have to know them specifically to apply)
  • Enthusiasm for collaboration (a lot of our work is asynchronous, and written communication is important at Daily, so if you apply, your cover letter is actually important)
  • Bonus if you have experience with or are excited about learning:
    • Real-time media
    • Building developer tools
    • Data visualization
  • Research shows that applicants who are female or non-binary, as well as applicants who are people of color, are less likely to apply for roles they don’t feel 100% qualified for. If you think you meet more than 60% of our requirements but fewer than 100%, please apply. Our job posting is the starting point for discussion rather than a perfect description of what we need.

Compensation and benefits

  • We level based on years of relevant experience. Each level has one salary and equity; they’re the same across roles. Compensation also is the same rate regardless of location. (We updated our compensation in January 2022 after an extensive internal process. The linked post talks about how we level candidates, in part because we believe clarity in levels benefits all of us. It’s also the case we strive to be consistent among staff on each team, and we haven’t included all of the details about how we level every role. If you apply and we get to the offer stage, we’ll be actively interested in learning about your experiences—but we may count certain work as indirect to maintain fairness within our team. If we’re in that discussion with you, we’ll do our best to share all the information that informs our decision.)
    • Level 3: 5-6 yrs relevant experience, $155,000
    • Level 4: 7-8 yrs, $180,000
    • Level 5: 9-10 yrs, $210,000
    • Level 6: 11-14 yrs, $240,000
    • Level 7: 15+ yrs, $270,000
  • Medical, dental, and vision group coverage for US teammates
  • Matching 401k for US teammates
  • Local country payroll/coverage for teammates outside the US
  • PTO: We ask that you take at least four weeks paid vacation
  • Parental leave: paid 4 months leave
  • IT budget: please get what you need to be effective
  • Professional learning & development budget
  • Remote team: work from anywhere — this team mostly resides in the US East and Central Europe timezones, and you’d need to have some synchronous time each week

More about us

  • Applying and interviewing is tough — thanks for considering us. We try to make it as humane as possible by sharing information with you as we go and keeping things moving to the best of our ability. Below is an overview of our full process.
  • We’re fully remote and always have been, with engineers around the world. Our leadership team includes people who have run remote teams for years.
  • Excellence requires diversity: we strongly encourage candidates from underrepresented groups in technology to apply.
  • Please learn about us, https://daily.co/jobs. As it says, we care deeply about what we build and seek kindness and diversity. Take care of yourself and your family’s time.
  • We believe in a healthy work-life balance. We’re a startup, but we work reasonable hours and want you to use your vacation time (seriously).
  • Daily has raised over $60 million from investors including Renegade Partners, Lachy Groom, Tiger Global, Slack Fund, Y Combinator, and leading angels like April Underwood, Aston Motes, Rahul Vohra, and Scott Belsky.
