Cased is the developer friendly way to get production work done.

Cased was founded in early 2020 by former GitHub and Facebook leaders, with investment from Founders Fund and some of the most experienced angel investors in technology. We're on a mission to make it easier for developers to get production work done and we're just getting started.

Cased embraces diversity, equity and inclusion, and invites applications from people of all walks of life. We don't discriminate against employees or applicants based on gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, religion, age, national origin, citizenship, disability, pregnancy status, veteran status, or any other differences.

As an engineer here, you'll help to shape both the future of our product and the company we become. You'll ship world-class software and work alongside engineering, design, and product leaders who helped build GitHub, Facebook, Zillow, Yelp, and Simple.

  • You're excited about working on a fast-growing product, and can adapt to changing product and customer needs.
  • You are familiar with good REST API design and best practices including authentication, rate limiting, content encoding, schemas, and errors.

What you'll do

  • Work alongside Cased founders and engineers to build customer-focused features and scalable architecture.
  • Learn from customer feedback and weigh in on product decisions.
  • Help to build a diverse and inclusive company culture. As an early employee you'll have a significant impact on the type of company Cased becomes.
