At LaunchBrightly, we are on a mission to automate a process that continually takes on-brand and styled screenshots of all your SaaS product features - on desktop, mobile, dark mode, localized, etc. As you update your product, we automatically update your website, help desk and other public collateral with on-brand, consistently styled images. The continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline and process that engineers adopted over the last decade, is what we ultimately want to build for product marketeers and customer success teams. TLDR; LaunchBrightly = CircleCI for marketing and support. And we are currently looking to bring onboard a Backend Engineer (API and Integrations).
Everyone at LaunchBrightly is a creator, an owner, or perhaps better, a celebration of the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. Most big companies are afraid of entrusting the future of the company and their software to a few makers, and as they defend against that, they end up with three layers of managers and a product designed by a committee. We want the opposite. We need the opposite as we enter virgin territory trying to build that CI/CD pipeline and process for marketing and support. As our customer pushes a new feature to production, we automatically update all her feature images across platforms. This is a thrilling adventure!
Our work is remote, not distant. We believe that being a remote-first organization allows us to build an exceptional team composed of makers and sellers with diverse backgrounds and skill sets from around the globe. Our default work culture is asynchronous and emphasizes written communication to prioritize maker time, focus and company productivity. Our goal is not to eliminate face-to-face interaction, but we should default to a setting where written documentation is so strong that a meeting on most project subject matters would seem odd.
Founded in 2022, and backed by prominent venture firms including IA Ventures and Tuesday Capital, this is a unique opportunity to join this band of misfits on the ground floor. As an early teammate you will be working intimately with the founding team, who has done 0 to 1 five times over while seeing four of them come to an exit.
The Backend Engineer will become an integral member of an initial 5-person team consisting of:
However, we are looking not just for an Engineer but, rather, a teammate we see as integral to LaunchBrightly’s long-term journey and vital to our success. Someone who is comfortable in the dark and who sees a certain romance, like we do, in embracing the unknowns that come with being on the startup journey. We have a track record of seeing those colleagues who join us on the ground floor of our ventures ride the startup journey to completion (exit) with us, as we grow and become successful together. This is something we take seriously, and something we are extremely proud of!
You will be responsible for taking the current MVP version of the Screenshotting and Styling API, architecting a more robust backdrop and designing something other programmers will love to use. The initial customer will be our own App, as a calmer start, but we do want to open up the API to more sophisticated customers who would like to control our screenshotting process more intimately themselves. You will extend the initial MVP feature set to include a pool of new functions:
Our infrastructure is set up and managed using AWS Amplify and we embrace a fully serverless environment, which (to a large degree) removes infrastructure as a task. Sure, you’ll probably do some cloudformation overrides on Amplify, but that should be it until we hire somebody to take this on. You are a backend API engineer first and foremost.
Once an image is extracted, cleaned, enhanced and styled, it is stored on our CDN (AWS Cloudfront) and our customer can use it manually from here. However we are excited to write a set of integrations that allow them to sync images automatically to help desks like Zendesk and Intercom, and as time allows, engineer other integrations as any product feature image in a help desk, should ultimately be something our platform could manage.
