About Replit
We’re building the world’s most ubiquitous programming environment. We focus on inspiring creativity and generating value for creators through community, and we design simple yet scalable infrastructure primitives for the next generation of creators. We want to blur the line between learning and making– a place where you can hang out, tinker with ideas, learn new concepts, and launch a business all in the same day.

About the role

Your charter as a Software Engineer on the Workspace/IDE team is to improve the core software creation experience on Replit, while also enabling other engineers to expand Replit’s power. You’ll work directly on core features like the editor and window management. You’ll also build infrastructure to make coding a multiplayer experience and rethink how software version control should work.

  • Ship features and build infrastructure using: JavaScript, TypeScript, React, NodeJS, and CodeMirror 6.

You are…

  • Able to demonstrate your 4+ years of working experience with depth of expertise in at least one of the following:

    • Building rich browser-based applications

    • Building frontend infrastructure used by 100+ other developers

    • Shipping your own products to, and working with, users

  • Someone who values simplicity and pragmatism (you think radically but ship incrementally).

Bonus Points

  • Experience working with IDEs, terminals, or other common developer tools.
