What Replit is looking for in applicants
Computers are the most powerful tools to exist in the history of humanity. Today, only a relative few—professional software developers—can use this superpower to its fullest extent. This has created an unbalanced world where there are programmers and those who consume their programs. Replit is changing that dynamic by bringing the next billion software creators online.
To succeed in our mission, we need to accelerate growth. That means increasing user retention. To drive retention, the product engineering team currently focuses on helping users get the most out of Replit. Recent projects include making profiles more customizable, re-launching Teams for Education as a free product, building a search engine, and standardizing on a design system.
The key qualification for leading a product engineering team at Replit is a passion for growth: growing the userbase, growing the team, and growing each engineer on the team.
To achieve our mission of making programming more accessible around the world, we need our team to be representative of the world. We welcome your unique perspective and experiences in shaping this product. We encourage people from all kinds of backgrounds to apply, including and especially candidates from underrepresented and non-traditional backgrounds.
