About Squad 

Squad is a NYC-based tech startup disrupting the consumer social space. Our app is a voice-only, intimate social experience that makes it super easy (and fun!) to stay close with your close friends. Our launch was covered by TechCrunch.

We’re backed by the who’s who of Silicon Valley, including top venture capitalists, and the founders of notable companies like Slack, Zillow, Away and StichFix. We just completed a fundraising round, and are looking to hire the next wave of engineers, product managers and data analysts ASAP to drive our product to the next level. 

As an early engineer on our team, you’ll have the opportunity to be an integral part of our product growth story. From implementing new features and APIs, to managing, structuring and storing our engagement data, you will be a very influential part of our growing engineering organization. This is an exciting opportunity, and there will be lots of opportunities to grow. As the company grows, so will you! 💪
