Are you passionate about open-source software? Want to change the world for the better for open-source developers? Come join our small team!
At Scarf, we strive to deliver a product that not only empowers open-source developers and their users, but also offers a delightful and reliable user experience. To that end, Scarf is hiring a talented Senior Software Engineer to work on every piece of our system - from the infrastructure to app server and beyond, from architecting to implementation to maintenance. This role has huge growth potential regardless of your intended career track within engineering.

These criteria are not hard requirements. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience is not exactly what we've described. At Scarf, your passion, skills, and potential to grow is what we care about. We welcome people from diverse backgrounds who are not afraid to solve problems in radically different ways and who want to build an inclusive place to work.
Reasons you might not be excited for this role:
At Scarf, we work to make open-source more equitable. Software, and supporting the people who build it is at the heart of everything we do. Our mission is to make open-source software a more equitable model for those who who create it, and a more valuable choice for the companies that rely on it.
We're in the very early stages. Nothing is set in stone and every part of our culture and company is yours to help shape. We're a fully remote team distributed across the western hemisphere. Working with us means autonomy and flexibility. We like to have some overlap in our work hours as a team, but otherwise your schedule is up to you. Due to our distributed nature, we have a strong focus on clear communication. Your written communication skills will be crucial, though we tend to jump on video calls regularly too. We strive to foster open and concise communication that is direct yet always empathetic.
We are an inclusive and welcoming team, no matter your background.
We work hard to have an amazing developer environment and experience, and put significant effort into ensuring our development toolchain is nothing short of state-of-the-art. We love coding and our codebase is fun to work on. We love statically-typed functional programming, if you're into that sort of thing.
We contribute to open-source and publish as much of our own code as we can. We engage with the open-source community as we strive to move it forward.
We're excited to meet you! Please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
