About GrowthBook

At GrowthBook, we are building an open source feature flagging and A/B testing platform. If you love the engineering challenges faced by large tech companies, but want the ownership and flexibility of a small startup, then GrowthBook is for you.

We are a small team, distributed across the US, and backed by YCombinator and Khosla Ventures. We’re helping companies release code quickly and confidently while measuring the impact of what they launch.

As an open source company, we are focused on bottom-up adoption and building a product that engineers love to use. We have an amazing open source community on Slack that gives us constant feedback, feature requests, and ideas. GrowthBook is already used in production by thousands of companies and we’re just getting started!

About the role

We have SDKs in 11+ languages, across back-end, front-end, and mobile. As an SDK Engineer, you would be responsible for implementing new features in these SDKs as well as working with our open source community to fix bugs and improve the developer experience.

You will work closely with the rest of the engineering team as we design new features. We don't just want to throw you a spec at the end of a project and say "implement this"; we want you to be involved from the very beginning. We care deeply about creating a great developer experience, and as an SDK Engineer, you would bring a unique and valuable perspective to the table.

We don't expect you to be an expert (or even proficient) with every programming language we support, so knowing how and when to bring in others to help is going to be critical. You will also need to understand what makes a good developer experience and have an eye for high quality code. This might involve managing contractors or consulting with language experts as needed.
