Elixir Engineer wanted at HelloSign

If you are an Elixir Engineer and would like to build a new product from the ground up, we want to hear from you. Please apply here: http://grnh.se/7iu8ey

The Role

As the first Elixir Engineer at HelloSign, you will develop our new platform with new features and scale in mind. In addition to being highly skilled on the technical side, you should also be able to put yourself in the user’s shoes and think critically about what you’re building. We take pride in our work and want you to as well.


  • Help scale this new product and our existing system to support millions of users.
  • While this new platform is purely in Elixir, our existing platform is in PHP. Therefore, PHP knowledge is not required, but it’s nice to have.
  • We believe in using the right tool for each particular job. Other than Elixir and PHP, our stack also includes AWS, MySQL, ElasticSearch, Redis, Memcached, Beanstalkd (for worker queues), SASS, and React JS.


  • Engineering experience: You’ve done web development for 4+ years with an MVC-type framework. Bonus points for strong MySQL experience.
  • Elixir experience: Ideally you have been coding in Elixir and Phoenix for some time and you have deployed and maintained an Elixir project in a production environment. Erlang experience also counts!
  • Teamwork: You’re used to working collaboratively, participating in code reviews, and being a team player.
  • Product centric: You love solving hard technical challenges and producing clean code, but you realize the product and the end-user’s experience is the most important thing. You need to care about the users and think beyond just the technical challenges.
  • Self directed: We’re a startup. We need someone who is comfortable taking an imperfect feature specification and driving it all the way to completion.

About Us:

Our team of 8 engineers is highly collaborative and driven. Though we have areas of specialty, we’re also generalists and equally comfortable up and down the stack from writing SASS to optimizing SQL. We support one another and do code-reviews to facilitate learning and reduce friction in our regular release schedule (which happens every 3 weeks). We also believe in having our engineers work closely with our other team members (product management, design, customer support, etc.) and we all share an open office in downtown San Francisco.

HelloSign has seen tremendous growth over the past two years, primarily through word-of-mouth, and we are now focusing on building the future of legal agreements. We are funded by some of the top investors in the valley, including Y Combinator, Greylock, Google Ventures, and US Venture Partners. Our goal is simply to be the way people sign documents everywhere.

We are centrally located in downtown San Francisco by Union Square. Currently at 50 employees, we are growing the company deliberately, with an eye towards maintaining a culture that values lifestyle, fun, and continuous improvement (we were recently awarded the Hirepalooza Culture Award for Lifestyle in early 2015!). Be sure to check us out on TheMuse and Glassdoor!
