Founder message


Thank you for considering a career at Showwcase. As you evaluate us, we hope you give us the opportunity to pitch you on why we care about this, and why we believe joining us could be the most impactful career decision you can make.

Showwcase is headquartered in San Francisco, California, but work with a distributed team all over the world - San Francisco, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia and Estonia. We work in a collaborative and dynamic environment where we are constantly pushing ourselves to redefine how coders are represented online. We have no office!

Showwcase


Showwcase is a professional network built and optimised for people that code (developers) to connect, build community, and find new opportunities.

The world is in the midst of an accelerated transition towards a digital-first future where every company is becoming a tech company. The resulting outcome is that the demand for developers is now at its highest ever and the number of people learning programming skills is accelerating rapidly. In fact, Microsoft estimates the number of coders to be at 200 million by 2025 - 4X what it is today!

Despite that, the representation of developers, how we interact, and find new opportunities is completely fragmented. Existing networks are not meeting the needs of people who can code. Generalised networks that cater to all professional categories cannot optimise their features and workflows around a specific niche like Coders.

We're moving extremely fast, but we’re still tiny relative to the opportunity ahead, so there is still much to do. Join us and help grow Showwcase into the largest network for coders in the world. We will change the way the coders interact, connect and transact with each other and the world.

You will


  • Identify areas of improvement and drive best practices
  • Build new features across our Web, Mobile and marketing site. You will work on every platform and own the full funnel. It's ok if you don't know all of this right away!
  • Work on meaningful projects that allow for new and existing users to have a more delightful user experience
  • Architect elegant and maintainable code with a focus on autonomy and support from the team
  • Work with design, data, and community teams to build meaningful additions to the app that help users be more successful in representing who they are, connecting with other developers, and finding new opportunities.

You have


  • 5+ years industry experience
  • Solid engineering and coding skills. Understanding of basic data structures and asynchronous programming
  • Demonstrated design and UX sensibilities
  • We're a multi-platform team, so it's important to have a solid understanding of the development frameworks and fundamentals of one or more of our platforms: Web (React, TypeScript, NextJs), Flutter (Dart).

  • Worked on a large scale application, and knows how to upscale a product.
  • We don't expect everyone to be an expert in all of these, and everyone has their specialties, but the more platforms you're comfortable with (or want to learn!), the faster we can move.

  • Experience building for experimentation, iteration, and driving metrics.
