We’re scaling quickly, and we’re recruiting teammates who share our core values, know how to get sht done, and would add a lot to our extremely driven culture. Join us in our mission of saving people time as we move towards ClickUp truly becoming one app to replace them all!

The Role:

  • Implement and maintain the API endpoints, services, and workers that power all of the exciting new features on our roadmap.

  • Work closely with frontend, quality assurance, and product teams.

  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git.
  • Product sense or curiosity about product and business value.
