In one sentence, why is this role awesome? ⭐
You play a massive role in helping us reimagine the future of product change communication!

As the old adage goes, "If you ship a feature but no customer hears about it...did the feature really ship?"

At Makelog, we're on a mission to help companies better communicate product changes to their customers and internal stakeholders. Today, sharing what ships is incredibly inefficient, time-consuming, and tedious - especially for the fastest moving teams.

We're looking for highly skilled engineers to help change the way companies fundamentally communicate constant changes! In this role, you'll be leading the development of new products and features that all of our users will see, shaping the technical vision and roadmap, and helping us define early best practices for release communication in a CI/CD paradigm.

This is an Individual Contributor position with plenty of potential to grow into a management role as we scale.

As Senior Full Stack Engineer you will:

  • Lead the development of brand new products and features to help users communicate changes more effectively, spanning across the UI, APIs, and any other tools and services

  • Optimize our data integration pipelines

  • Collaborate with customers as well as our CEO, Founding Engineer, and Product Engineer to iterate on our product

  • Participate in design and code reviews to ensure quality and good architecture

  • Set our current and future teammates up for success by writing maintainable, clear, well-architected code, tests, and documentation

  • Help assess and recruit future engineers

What you bring:

  • Experience with modern Javascript frameworks (React, Vue), RESTful APIs and/or GraphQL

  • Experience with cloud based infrastructure like AWS, GCP, and Azure

  • An entrepreneurial mindset and ability to prioritize in a fast-paced and ambiguous environment

  • Intrinsic curiosity and motivation to solve difficult problems for customers

You’ll be a great fit if you:

  • Have several years of experience across the entire stack, from frontend to backend

  • Have scaled production software to support rapid growth at another technology company

  • Enjoy working closely with customers to build features and solve problems

  • Can balance moving fast with doing things "right"

  • Are fluent in, or have an interest in learning, Go

  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills

  • An open and growth mindset when giving and receiving feedback


  • Work remotely from anywhere

  • Competitive compensation, benefits, and meaningful equity

  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and their dependents

  • Generous PTO policy and mental health days

  • Learning and Development stipend

  • The opportunity to build something that redefines the status quo of how product updates are compiled, curated, and distributed

About us

We are building a movement to fundamentally reimagine how companies communicate product changes.

We're backed by a tier 1 VC firm (soon to be announced!), as well as operator angels who've experienced this problem, including founders like Calvin French-Owen (Segment), Ilya Volodarsky (Segment), Ian Storm Taylor (Segment), Jeff Arnold (Pilot), Christine Yen (Honeycomb), and more.

Joining Makelog means joining a fast-moving early stage startup at the ground level, where you'll have massive impact in shaping how every company shares what ships.

Share your product velocity with the world.
