About the Team

At Kickstarter, our Engineering team is highly collaborative. We care about crafting code for the long-term, shipping great product efficiently, and continually learning and teaching. We work in close partnership with designers and product managers in an iterative and experiment-driven process, helping to bring creative projects to life.

About Our Tech Stack

  • Kickstarter uses TypeScript, React, Ruby on Rails, and Sorbet (in places) on the web; Swift on iOS; and a combination of Java and Kotlin on Android.
  • We use functional reactive programming libraries for state management on the native platforms.
  • We use both REST and GraphQL to communicate between clients and servers.
  • We do not expect you to know every relevant technology at the time that you interview, but you will need to demonstrate that you can learn and become productive in our core technologies in a reasonable amount of time upon joining the team.

What You'll Enjoy:

  • Fridays off! Kickstarter is currently experimenting with a 4-day/32-hour workweek pilot so that we can all enjoy long weekends

  • A fully remote workforce with plenty of opportunities to get to know your colleagues

  • 100% employer-paid health plan offerings

  • 16 paid vacation days, 10 sick days, and a company-wide winter break between Christmas and New Years

  • 25 volunteer hours each year to give back to your community

  • 16 weeks of parental leave plus fertility/family planning resources

  • Incredibly talented and inspiring colleagues who know how to blend their creative endeavors into their work
