We’re inspired by how WhatsApp's engineering team supported 900m users with only ~50 engineers and think that small, talented, hard-working teams build better products and companies. You’ll be joining a super-fun, wildly creative and energetic team of people who dream big, never quit, and get things done by any means necessary.

The next 12 months will be company-defining for us and you have the opportunity to get involved. We’re just trying our hardest. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
