The Nudge

The Nudge is building the social platform that empowers people to get off their 🍑s and have fun in the real world.

Nearly half of female Millennials + Gen Z use The Nudge in our main cities, and we’re the #1 influence on how they spend their free time. We're a Series A startup, well-funded by top-tier consumer VCs, including Lightspeed Venture Partners & Goodwater Capital.

We’re kicking off an exciting new chapter for the company: An aggressive product roadmap to become more socially-driven, and plans to scale across the globe. Our mission is to become the one-stop-shop for planning your free time, because it’s too damn easy to be lazy now and life is short!

The Nudge team lives the mission, and we come from world class tech (Apple, Google) and consumer (Glossier, The Infatuation) backgrounds. Our values are things like “make shit happen” and “treat Nudgers like royalty.” Sound like something worth dedicating your precious time to? Then we can’t wait to meet.

The role

We're looking for smart, motivated generalists who can contribute across our stack and who like to ship things quickly. We have a website, an iOS app, an Android app, and some complex backend infrastructure. We have a lot to build in every part of our stack.

What you’ll own

  • Write and ship new application features on all our platforms

  • Design and build the APIs and backend infrastructure behind our apps

  • Work closely with other engineers, designers, and company leadership

  • Ship quickly — we deploy multiple times per day and value rapid iteration with users

  • Wear whatever hats needed to make the business succeed — we're a small team

Who you are

  • 5+ years of experience building complex applications for the web or mobile, including both frontend and backend development

  • Demonstrated ability to design new data structures, algorithms, and protocols

  • A high attention to detail

  • Good technical communications skills, both verbal and written

  • A willingness to work hard as part of a team and learn new things quickly

  • An owner mentality - there's a lot to do, and we need folks who are excited to take the lead on projects

  • Bonus: Experience with Javascript, React, and React Native

  • Bonus: Experience with JVM languages, PostgreSQL, and AWS

We’re looking for people who want to work their 🍑off with an inspired team, move incredibly fast, and put their name on this company.

Nudge HQ and our Nudgers are a diverse family. We encourage applications regardless of color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, nationality, marital status, disability, and veteran status.

What we offer

  • Highly competitive salary

  • Generous equity grants

  • 401k

  • Medical and dental

  • Company-sponsored budget for having fun 💳

  • Subsidized fitness memberships 🧘‍♀️

  • Minimum 20 days vacation ⛱

  • Annual team offsites 🎉

  • A shiny new 💻

  • A paid co-working space (if role not in SF) 🏠
