🍱 About Bento
Our team has decades of collective experience in building onboarding and adoption workflows. We also have deep empathy with the internal Success and Growth teams who have limited resources in experimenting with and shaping these product experiences. That's why we're building Bento, to give modern software companies the system to design engaging and collaborative adoption workflows, without needing to build or maintain it in-house.
Now, Bento is hiring a senior front-end engineer to own critical parts of our user-facing product. You'll be working with our engineering team along with our designer. As a small team, this is a critical and high impact role in a fast moving environment. Our ideal teammate moves quickly, enjoys the full span of engaging with users, defining product UX, architecting, and implementing to learn and validate product value.
Bento is backed by top investors including Y Combinator and General Catalyst, and is fully distributed. This role is remote and open to anyone working within EST or PST timezones.
