Looking for our

Editor Software Engineer (Europe)

We are looking for our next Editor Software engineer to join us! Text edition is one of the most under-looked feature on modern collaboration tools. It's seems so trivial, yet way harder than people think. Any good text edition is good because it goes out of the way. It needs to be fast, feature rich, and remove any possible friction between a creative mind and their production.

Hey there,

Charley David
,
Engineering manager

Slite editor's history is rich, we never rest, we never settle. From a naive WYSIWYG to a full blown real time collaborative editor, we are on a continuous quest to master rich text edition and support our creative users as much as we can. And the results speak for themselves, our editor is one of the most loved in the field.

We combined technologies like Slate.js and Operational Transformation for our stack. We invest in open source, and helped bring the Android typing experience on par with the other platforms. We designed our own virtualised rendering of documents for faster loads and interactions.

As Slite's edition scope is growing, with the recent addition of our collections, smart tables, discussions, we are now looking at expanding the editor team and bring even more talents to the incredible mix that makes it what it is today.

What's my mission?


As an Editor Software Engineer part of the Content Squad, you would work with our whole collaboration stack, from the editor frontend library to the realtime server. Your role will be including but not limited to:

  • Ensuring the quality and speed of our front-end editor.
  • Contribute to the stability and performance of our realtime collaboration server.
  • Making sure it's fully tested, and avoiding regressions.
  • Improving the developer experience around it, our internal API and tooling.
  • Help shape, develop, and iterates on new features.
  • Participate and help maintaining the open source libraries core to our editing experience.
  • Review and provide guidance to the tech team.
  • Promote code quality and maintainability across squads.
  • Write and maintain a comprehensive documentation.
  • Seek for performance, security, and quality of our infrastructure.

Is this you?

Here are some of the key things we are looking for.
  • You have at least 2 years of experience with rich text edition on the web.
  • You already worked with or used real-time collaboration technologies (CRDT, OT, ...)
  • You have a deep understanding of React, its lifecycle and rendering mechanisms.
  • You are not afraid of composition nor selection issues.
  • You are organised and able to prioritise your work in a fast moving/delivery environment
  • You can think out of the box and enjoy looking for creative solutions to uncommon problems
  • And finally, you thrive working closely with your teammates, reviewing code, doing pair-programming, and comfortable communicating openly with the rest of the team.

We work thoughtfully

We put a lot of care into how we work, and build Slite to enable:

Written culture

Writing long form allows us to drive thoughtful discussions around key topics. Documenting our work helps us reduce meetings and create our team's collective memory.

Transparency

Our work is shared and open by default in Slite. It makes each of us more autonomous, and removes frictions that come with remote collaboration.

Async work, with real interactions

Working async provides us with more flexibility, and makes everyone owner of their time and work.

Still, we are humans at work. We believe in real life interactions, 1:1 video calls, ideation meetings are all crucial to building trusting, long lasting relationships.

Remote work

We started Slite remotely in 2017 and never looked back.

It works thanks to our strong written culture and our regular cadence of in-person meetings, about every two to four months.

Benefits of working at Slite

🙌
Great remote habits
Started in remote, selling to remote teams, we strive to be an example of great remote habits. You won't find endless stand-up and hours long meetings here. We work async and socialize in sync.
🖇
Your work set up is covered
Working from home, we take care of your chair, monitor, desk and other appliances. More of a co-working person? Pick yours! Want both? No problem.
🧘
Vacation time
We know the positive impact of good holidays in remote. All employees across the world have 35 days off, plus your local bank holidays.
🎈
We see each other 3+ times a year
Some see remote as a cold way of working. Not us. We foster strong human relationships through weekly rituals and gathering at least three times a year. Offslites allow everyone to gain ownership on what's next and build stronger human connection.
🍩
Compensation
Like any startup we'll say we offer competitive compensations. This is how we do it: we built our salary model based on location, to always be in the top 25% offers of the local tech market. Our employees should feel at ease and rewarded.
🍼
Got kids?
So does 30% of the team. We're used to it. Remote gives parents work flexibly, so they can combine great family life with ambitious work.
