We’re looking for engineers that enjoy having a huge impact at fast-growing startups and that have a passion for our mission of making work more purposeful.

About Koan:

Organizations struggle with communicating and measuring progress on their objectives. Teams work in isolation, priorities get lost, and the shared documents and spreadsheets companies use for tracking are a mess and don’t scale. Koan is here to help with a modern approach to strategic business execution. From the executive level down to individual contributors, Koan combines status reporting and goals (OKRs) tracking to improve transparency, accountability and feedback. By aligning the entire organization with a suite of tools that employees love using, Koan helps every team work with purpose.

Koan is a venture-backed startup based in Portland, OR.
