Fountain is a Remote-first company that embraces a work from anywhere policy and offers flexibility on location, so our employees feel free to enjoy the world. Fountain is widely trusted by leading organizations, including Chipotle, StitchFix, GoPuff and Just Eat Takeaway.

We just 4.5Xed in valuation in our Series C, which was led by Softbank and B Capital. We plan on keeping this hyper-growth going this year! Come join us on this rocket ship!

What you'll be doing:

  • Work effectively with the Fountain Product & Engineering Team to build new high quality Fountain features and improve upon existing ones
  • Provide ongoing maintenance, support and enhancements in existing systems and platforms
  • Become familiar with the existing Fountain (Ruby on Rails) backend
  • Contribute to architectural, design, and process discussions involving the technological choices involved in building new features
