About Digitile:

Digitile’s AI data-driven document organization platform solves a ubiquitous pain point in the workplace that is even more relevant with the shift to working from home as employees struggle to find information across Google Suite, MSFT Office, Slack, Zoom, and more. The Employee workflow is ripe for disruption, and there is a massive market gap between Cloud Storage & Digital Asset Management solutions that has left users stuck. Join Digitile to work on building a revolutionary light-weight Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution that personalizes the way teams work without changing behavior through a convenient Chrome extension.

Job Description:

Digitile is looking for a talented, friendly and thoughtful Backend Engineer to join us in creating the future of feedback. As one of the first 10 employees at Digitile, you’ll get to work on our most interesting and impactful challenges. Together, we can help professionals everywhere organize their files across their entire workplace file ecosystem.

You’ll focus on the backend and infrastructure of our Web stack (JavaScript, SQL, GCP &  AWS), collaborating closely with other engineers, product managers, and designers. You’ll contribute to the product-development process, developing powerful, scalable APIs. You’ll write well-tested, maintainable code, and help drive the direction of our growing backend architecture and deployment processes.

We are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in the United States. However, we are not able to sponsor visas.
