About the product
Have you ever worked with an amazing teammate that helped your team crush goals, while being an absolute delight to work with? On the flip side, have you ever worked with someone with all the right skills, but just wasn’t the right fit for your team?
We believe that hiring is broken, and the way to fix it is to bring the most important data into hiring decisions. We’ve built a suite of tools that helps companies like Coinbase, Zapier, and Udemy collect and connect data from pre- and post-hire to make hiring more accurate and efficient. Searchlight is passionate about solving a really hard technology problem: creating a structured, objective standard for understanding people holistically and giving talent teams supercharged tools to take action.
2+ years of experience software engineering, preferably at least 2 years at a seed, Series A, or Series B company
Expert in at least one modern engineering framework, and has showed aptitude to pick up new frameworks quickly
Moving at our pace brings a lot of change, complexity, and ambiguity—and a little bit of chaos. Searchlighters thrive on that and are comfortable being uncomfortable. That means Searchlight is not the right place for everyone.
At Searchlight, we:
Care deeply about what you do and about making hiring better for everyone
Excel by seeking professional and personal hypergrowth
Keep up with an unrelenting pace (the week, not the quarter)
Are resilient and resourceful in face of ambiguity and thrive on (rather than endure) change
Bring critical thought and opinion
Embrace differences and disagreement to get shit done and move forward
Bring a history of being resilient and resourceful
