Software Engineer @ FOSSA

Software Engineer at FOSSA
Remote US or Remote Canada

If you’re like us, you agree that open source software is a wonderful and unique gift that the community of software developers across the world have given to each other. At FOSSA, we want to proliferate its usage with our software supply chain management platform that helps our customers know what licenses, vulnerabilities, and dependencies go into their software as they utilize open source software packages. And we won’t rest until all companies, big and small, love and feel as comfortable with using open source as we are.

FOSSA is a rapidly growing series-B company with a truly distributed team. While our roots are in San Francisco, our growing team has members in several countries across many time zones. We’re always working to find the perfect balance of effective approaches to distributed work, while maintaining the direct personal connections that help us work better together and love our jobs.

As a software engineer on our team, you’ll be working closely with the whole company to bring features from ideation to implementation. Your participation will have a significant impact on our company roadmap, and you’ll be able to see the outsized impact that your work has on our revenue. Your day-to-day will be largely determined by what you want to work on: in a team of our size, our engineering team also helps own our product, customer success, and growth functions.

In this role you will:

  • Work closely with the whole company to plan, design, build, and refine core product features.
  • Own user-impacting features from conception to completion.
  • Build and scale our core product and technical infrastructure.
  • Have significant ownership in our technical architecture and product roadmap.

About you:

  • You take pride in delivering simple, reliable solutions to technically complex problems.
  • You’re comfortable navigating complex domains and building intuitive software for them.
  • You thrive in an environment that prefers prototypes over proposals.
  • You’re low ego, but have informed opinions.
  • You have a track record of trying and learning new things.
  • You are excited about working in new programming languages.

It’s a plus if you also have:

  • Experience with Haskell, Golang, Rust, Javascript, and Node JS.
    • These are the languages the codebases we maintain are written in.

Why you’ll love working at FOSSA:

  • Amazing team culture and environment
  • Named by Forbes as Best Start-up to work for 2022
  • Competitive salary and equity packages
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Comprehensive benefits: Medical, dental, and vision insurance are covered for employees; flexible spending account; 401k
  • Paid maternity and paternity leave

So, the true distribution of work is “US or Canada”? :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


does “remote US or Canada” mean I have to be located somewhere in the US or Canada?

Yes, that is correct!

Do you support H1B visa?

Unfortunately at this time we are not supporting H1B Transfers.
