About Patio
Pull up a chair and join us at Patio! We’re a remote-only company of 25 building out the future of communication and growing quickly. We help colleges and students connect with each other in a safe and welcoming environment, and we've raised $8M in 2021 from investors including Forerunner Ventures (backed Glossier, Hims & Hers, Chime, Warby Parker), Redpoint Ventures (backed Stripe, Snowflake, Nextdoor, Twilio), and Abstract Ventures (backed Popshop, Poparazzi, Rippling, WorkOS). If you love the idea of working at a fast-paced startup on the cutting edge of the consumer social space, come work at Patio!
As a senior engineer on the web team, you’ll be at the forefront of building fun (and technically challenging!) features for a highly engaged user base that’s multiplying every month. You’ll work closely with some amazing engineers and mentor a growing team. You’ll work on a well-architected Typescript codebase, and use cutting edge technologies such as GraphQL/Hasura and Cypress on a daily basis. This role is absolutely critical to ensuring a great product experience for our users.

Our Tech Stack

  • React
  • Typescript
  • Apollo/GraphQL to interact with a Hasura back-end
  • SASS modules for styling
  • Cypress for testing
  • Storybook
  • React Native for the mobile app
  • AWS and Firebase on the back-end


  • Build and iterate rapidly on engaging features (while squashing bugs) for the web app
  • Help define the technical vision for the team, codebase and tooling.
  • Improve the overall performance and quality of the web app
  • Mentor and unblock other engineers on the team
  • Interview candidates and help with hiring and onboarding more engineers to the team


  • 5+ years of professional software development experience with an expert level of knowledge with React, JS, GraphQL and their ecosystems. You also have some experience with full-stack development.
  • Build well-tested and polished features quickly. You are able to identify when to make appropriate tradeoffs to ship quickly vs. when to take the time to do things right. Even in ambiguous situations, you can identify the most valuable areas to direct your energy.
  • Experience tech leading small teams of engineers and mentoring junior engineers (nice to have)
  • Communicate clearly, both in writing and verbally.
  • Reside in USA/Canada: we are a distributed company that likes to minimize the time zone spread within the team.
