About Us
A massive shift is taking place within SaaS. Just as perpetual licensing gave way to subscription, subscription is giving way to usage-based pricing. But tying revenue to usage fundamentally changes how every part of the business operates, from billing teams to the C-suite. Turnstile is the modern stack to help companies adopt and scale with usage-based pricing.

We're a small, fully remote, and proven team with strong backing from First Round Capital, prominent usage-based founders and operators, and other top investors. The last company we started, Second Measure, scaled to 70+ people and tens of millions in revenue, received multiple "best places to work" awards, and was ultimately acquired by Bloomberg in a landmark deal.

The Opportunity
As a founding engineer, you'll be an integral part of our early team. You'll help lay the technical foundation of our product as we work toward MVP and product-market fit. You'll put into place engineering practices that support a culture of collaboration, authenticity, and excellence. More than that, you'll join a tight-knit team of repeat founders and seasoned operators in shaping the future of SaaS.

Joining as a frontend lead, you'll own the user interface of a comprehensive, web-based platform for usage-based SaaS operators and their customers. You'll architect our frontend systems; define our frontend stack, development practices, and standards; and lead our frontend team. You'll work closely with design and product management to deliver a consumer-grade experience to business users for one of their most operationally critical systems.

In this role, we'll ask you to:
  • Partner with technical founders, design, and product management to create a category-defining product
  • Design and build our frontend systems from the ground up using modern tools and patterns
  • Define best-in-class frontend engineering standards and practices
  • Collaborate with the backend team to iterate quickly and deliver a delightful user experience
  • Help mentor a diverse and distributed team of frontend engineers

We'd love to hear from you if:
  • You have a history of building elegant, performant, and maintainable frontend systems
  • You have prior experience as a team or technical lead
  • You have deep expertise in React
  • You're interested in working with a modern tech stack using things like Typescript, Next.js, and Tailwind
  • You're excited to build a product from the ground up with an experienced team
  • You'd enjoy working in a dynamic and high-trust environment
  • You have empathy for your customers, whether they be internal or external
  • You believe how you achieve a result is just as important as the result itself
