At Tango, we're building a workflow intelligence platform to fundamentally transform how people learn, share, and discover best practices. Tango's Chrome Extension records step-by-step activity of top performers to make team processes easily reviewable and understood. Teams using Tango have more: (1) productive new hires, (2) effective coaching from managers, and (3) recognition for high performance.

We believe teams that openly support and challenge each other are destined to win. Plus, they're more fun! Working at Tango means putting the team first and growing together. We move quickly in service to our customers. If this excites you, we're excited to hear from you!

You will have a huge influence on our product roadmap and will work directly with the founders and senior members of the team across engineering, product, and design — who bring their experiences from Uber, Anchorage, Docker, General Catalyst, and Harvard Business School.

What you’ll do

  • Spearhead the development of new features on our cutting-edge Chrome extension and web application
  • Collaborate closely with the engineering, product, and design teams to iterate on features and improvements to the Tango product

Your tech stack

  • You have experience working with GraphQL APIs and the GraphQL ecosystem.
  • You have experience with modern bundling tools such as Webpack, Parcel, or Rollup.

  • Above all else, you are a continuous learner and are excited to add new skills to your toolbox. We believe that the best engineers can learn new skills on the job.

  • You are an expert in managing technical debt—if you choose not to avoid it, you encapsulate it.
  • You have a high-bar for quality and implement pixel-perfect UI.

Who you are:

  • A mentor; we’re passionate about teams being more than the sum of their parts
  • A truth-seeker; you zero-in on the most important task in order to move quickly
  • A dreamer; you embrace the growth mindset and refuse to settle for good enough
