We’re looking for a new engineer on our Design team at ReadMe! If you get excited by building prototypes, shipping features, and designing fun stuff—like (it’s a work in progress!) or our Owlbot AI page—you’ll be a perfect fit.

We're a small team of humans (and one owl) working together to do big things, and we’re growing fast! That’s where you come in. Since we’re a startup, you’ll make a big impact on ReadMe both in the daily responsibilities of your role and beyond.

🦉 What ReadMe Does

ReadMe helps companies build beautiful, personalized, and interactive developer hubs. If you’ve ever visited the developer docs for Airbnb, Notion, or Cohere, you’ve used ReadMe! We love what we do because it’s so much more than just docs. We’re providing tools for teams to create and manage beautiful documentation with ease. Our engineers & designers are especially excited to see the impact their work can have, because they care deeply about developer experience.

You can read more about what it’s like to work at ReadMe on our careers page, or our Key Values page. We've written on our blog in the past about how we interview, and feel free to browse our other blog posts as well if it strikes your fancy!

  • Add a bit of whimsy whenever possible. :)

💙 You’ll love this job if you are…

  • Wanting to straddle the line between product, engineering and marketing design.

  • Curious about solving for developer pain points, and how to communicate with developers. You’ll speak to our customers in person, but also through your work. As a developer, you’ll have a good handle on the best way to define our brand for our users—including yourself!

  • Interested in building prototypes and features for new ideas in the Gen AI world.
