< See all openings ClickUp is the world's only all-in-one productivity platform that flexes to the way people want to work. It replaces all individual workplace productivity tools with a single, unified platform including project management, document collaboration, spreadsheets, chat, goals, and more. On a mission to make the world more productive, ClickUp is headquartered in San Diego and scaling remotely and internationally.

As one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in the world, ClickUp recently raised a $400M Series C at a $4B valuation. Today, we're helping more than 800,000 teams to be more productive and save at least one day every week. We're looking for exceptional people to join us at ClickUp to help us accelerate on our mission and deliver on this promise to our customers.

In this unique opportunity, you would be one of the founding members of our new Growth Engineering team. You would help us to build an inclusive, highly collaborative team with stakeholders in Marketing, Sales, Customer Support, Analytics, Product Growth, and more. Your contribution is highly visible to our top leadership, including our CEO.

The ideal candidate would have experience with queuing services, in-memory data stores, WebSocket management, monitoring and alerts, and continuous integration techniques. You are responsible for implementing and maintaining highly performant API endpoints, workers, and services that can scale to support our rapidly growing user base.

We’re recruiting teammates who embrace our core values, know how to get sh*t done, and would add a lot to our extremely driven culture. Join us in our mission of saving people time as we move towards ClickUp truly becoming one app to replace them all!
The Role:
  • - Lead the implementation and optimize API endpoints, services, and workers that power all of the exciting new features on our roadmap.
  • - Design systems that enable rapid iteration and experimentation.
  • - Share a customer-centric view and collaborate with multiple stakeholders to make big bets and learn from experimentation.
  • - Educate and level up the team in designing and building systems for maximum performance, reliability, and scalability.
  • - Writing efficient and concise SQL queries to scale ClickUp to the next level.
Qualifications:
  • - 4+ years of experience writing and maintaining API's in a production-level environment (preferably with Node.js).
  • - Expert in SQL and relational databases (preferably PostgreSQL).
  • - A strong self-starter, who likes solving problems and getting things done.
  • - Hands-on experience with AWS or another cloud service.
  • - Product sense or curiosity about product and business value.
  • - Strong intuition for when to hack vs build for maintainability.
  • - Excellent interpersonal, written, and oral communication skills.

You should consider applying even if you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications. Many studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the qualifications.
