Job Description:

RemNote was founded at MIT, got into YC (didn't go), and just raised their $2.8M seed round led by General Catalyst.
We're combining research in psychology and neuroscience with cutting-edge web technology and massively increasing the productivity of thousands of students, researchers, and professionals every day.
We're looking for ambitious builders excited by the challenges and learning experience of a hypergrowth startup. Your impact and contributions will be visible from day one!
We offer flexible working hours and are a distributed company.
You'll work in a team of productivity-obsessed SWEs with a fast but sophisticated dev cycle/process. We tackle ambitious projects ranging from real-time graph collaboration, rich-text editing, fast in-memory search, and more.
Our product engineers think deeply about the end-user’s thinking and learning experience. They bring powerful workflows to life through clean, robust, scalable code.
Join RemNote to reinvent how people learn, think, and collaborate and build the #1 knowledge management platform.

What You’ll Do 

  • Build a completely new, social, and essential part of our product.
  • Work closely with product managers and designers to study user workflows
  • Build features that enhance and fine-tune RemNote’s core experience
  • Lead engineering projects for significant new initiatives or “headliner” features
  • Take ownership over significant parts of the codebase, and make careful architectural decisions
  • Write robust, clean code with TypeScript within Node.js, and React.js

Technical Background

  • You've experience building social media platforms.
  • You're experienced with TypeScript, Node, React. You know how to architect code in a clean, extensible way.
  • You’re an experienced web developer and know how to avoid common pitfalls with web technologies.

  • You're experienced with writing reliable, carefully-tested code.
  • You're comfortable with CS principles and especially thinking about graphs.
  • You're comfortable with front-end performance engineering.


  • Deliberate Problem-solving: You thrive in a scaling startup, can decompose tricky problems, and work intentionally towards a clean solution, by yourself or with teammates.
  • Customer Obsession: You think critically about the implications of what you're building and how a product’s design and code affect users' experience and life.
  • Team player: You work well in a team of diverse skills (design, engineering, product, advocacy). You're able to communicate technical decisions and trade-offs in writing or brainstorming in real time.
  • Fast Learner: You enjoy learning new technologies as you go.
  • Autonomy: You can implement and deliver without a lot of guidance.

Bonus Points

  • You're deeply motivated by the need to build more efficient learning experiences and to support thinkers.
  • You have experience working with cross-platform applications.
  • You're proficient with back-end technology stack: Node.js, MongoDB, and AWS.
  • You've experience with React Native and Expo
  • You deeply understand our product.
  • You've thought deeply about tools for thought and have a vision that aligns with ours.
  • You’re serious about your own productivity and have developed workflows that you use to organize your thinking and learning.
All of these requirements are not set in stone. We're looking for people who are passionate and ambitious. If you believe you’re the right person for this job, tell us why.
