Engagement Details

What We Do? We're the first and largest peer-to-peer marketplace for laundry. Our customers tap the app and outsource their laundry. For them, it’s life without laundry, because we hacked it out of existence. But we solve a second problem too, which is that more and more people of varying backgrounds want to work from home. Luckily, most people have an underutilized washer/dryer, which when combined with our Laundry Pro app, provides the first-ever manual labor work-from-home gig in the world. For all our users, we're a marketplace for a better life.

Our Progress Perfect product market fit drove a 100x surge in users & revenue and double-digit MoM growth over the past few years. In 2021, we scaled to 500+ markets throughout the United States. In March 2022 we closed a $10m seed round which included VC investments from Headline, Origin Ventures, Starting Line VC, Ludlow Ventures, and Clean Ventures, as well as notable angel investments from Max Mullen, co-founder of Instacart, Steven Galanis, Co-founder and CEO of Cameo, Joanna Riley, CEO and co-founder of Censia, and Rob Chesnut, Chief Ethics Officer for airbnb. Significant growth continued in 2022 and 2023. As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll report to and work closely with our Principal Engineer, who is responsible for creating and driving the technical strategy for the user experience. You will help champion the technology selection and best practices in our app and web development. You will help lead the way in bringing technical excellence and innovation to our codebase. You will spend the vast majority of your time building the product. You must love to code, and want to spend most of your time doing so. Our tech stack is mostly TypeScript, allowing engineers to implement end-to-end functionality. On the frontend we use Angular/Ionic and on the backend Firebase with Node.js.

What’s in it for you

  1. Learn and evolve your skills using the latest and greatest technology tools in a rapidly growing company.
  2. Learn from the best people around you. We constantly challenge the status quo and invent new ways of building a great product.
  3. Flexible hours. Join daily standups, sprint planning, and retrospective meetings. Other than that you’re in control of your own schedule.
  4. 100% remote. Work anywhere, whether it is remotely in the comfort of your home, in a shared co-working space, in an RV on the beach, or while being a nomad in another country.
  5. Work on challenging problems, innovate, and positively impact many people's lives while having fun doing it.
