About Fathom

We think it’s insane that so many people and businesses rely on notes as a primary means of remembering and sharing insights from video calls.

Notes are time consuming and stressful to create while trying to hold a conversation. Even when done well, notes are a poor solution compared to hearing something first-hand.

We started Fathom to rid us all of the tyranny of note-taking and in just 18 months since launch we’ve already accomplished a lot:

About the role

Are you a highly experienced software engineer who enjoys working on a fast-growing product that users absolutely love? If so, you've come to the right place.

You have a lot of choices about where you spend your time, so let's first tell you a little about us.

🚀 ABOUT FATHOM

We think it’s insane that so many people and businesses rely on notes as a primary means of remembering and sharing insights from video calls.

Notes are time-consuming and stressful to create while trying to hold a conversation. Even when done well, notes are a poor solution compared to hearing something first-hand.

We started Fathom to rid us all of the tyranny of note-taking, and people seem to really love what we've built so far:

🔥 #1 Rated on G2 with 1,100+ reviews and a perfect 5/5 rating

🥇 #1 Product of the Day and #2 AI Product of the Year

💸 We’ve raised a $4.7M seed round from a number of great investors including the CEOs of Twitch, Reddit, Cruise, Clearbit, and many more.

💖 Users have invested over $1.2M via our Wefunder

📈 We’re hitting usage records every week. Check out our DAU graph

As you can see from the last graph, we're growing incredibly quickly, which is why we're looking to grow our small-but-mighty team.

🔥 WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US

  • We’re smart and GSD (get shit done). You’ll work alongside our 3-person, all-senior engineering team with significant academic experience as well (two PhDs and two Masters).
  • We embrace being fully remote. We schedule meetings sparingly and instead heavily use async comms (Slack, Notion, Loom)
  • Opportunity for impact. We’re established enough to be able to ship instead of fight fires but also early enough enough that your work will have a real impact.
  • Experienced management. You’ll work closely with our CEO who is a 2X Founder/CEO (previously started UserVoice) and who has a background in computer science as well as product design.

⚙️ TECH STACK

We use all of the following technologies. Your knowledge of these would be helpful but you need not be familiar with all of them.

GKE, Ruby/Rails/Sidekiq, Go, Electron, Typescript/TSX, Stencil, Elasticsearch, C++, Kafka, MySQL, Redis, Pusher, GitHub Actions, Docker, ArgoCD, CircleCI

✅ HARD REQUIREMENTS

Outside of the obvious technical skills, GSD mindset, and ability to thrive in a remote environment, we do have a few hard requirements that you should be aware of:

  • High level of technical competence
  • You must have 5+ years of production experience with SAAS that has achieved some level of traction. We have no junior folks on our team nor the bandwidth to mentor them (yet).
  • Must speak English fluently and be available to work within 2 hours of a US timezone.
Technology

We use all of the following to power the Fathom app. If you're an engineer, knowledge of these would be helpful but you need not be familiar with all of them. If you're not an engineer, you can ignore this :)

GKE, S3, Ruby/Rails/Sidekiq, Go, Electron, Typescript/TSX, Stencil, Elasticsearch, C++, Kafka, MySQL, Redis, Pusher, GitHub Actions, Docker, ArgoCD, CircleCI

Interview Process

➡️ OUR HIRING PROCESS

  • No live coding. We have no idea who thought writing code on whiteboards was a good idea but we hate it. We’re much more interested in what you’ve done and learned.
  • You’ll meet the entire team. We think it’s important that you get to meet everyone you’ll be working with.
  • No bullshit. Ask us anything you like. We’ve never understood why companies pretend they’re something that they’re not in the hiring process - you’re going to find out eventually so we’d rather you know who we are up front so we can both make sure this is a good fit for all involved.
  • Quick turnaround time. We know you have lots of options so we move fast usually in less than a week from start to finish.

The overall process is 2-3 hours across 3 separate days of meetings:

  1. Initial meeting with Nick Kraft, Eng Lead - 30 mins
  2. Meet with Richard White, Founder/CEO - 30 mins
  3. Meet with the entire engineering team - 90 mins

If all of those go well we will ask you for 2-3 references to follow-up with before an offer.
