Software Engineer


We are looking for outstanding product-focused software engineers who want to work on re-imagining a product that we developers use every day. As an Engineer at Warp, you'll have the chance to tackle difficult technical problems. One of the main reasons there has been little innovation in this space is that, for historical reasons, the terminal/shell division makes it hard to innovate. You'll get to work on a fast moving project right from day one! Also, as a foundational member of our early team, you'll be instrumental in shaping our company culture and long-term engineering practices.

🎥 Here’s a quick 3-min video of Zach Lloyd, our founder and CEO, giving an overview of the product and the company:

As a Software Engineer, you will…

  • Participate in all aspects of software development activities, including design, coding, code review, unit/integration testing, bug fixing, and code/API documentation.

  • Collaborate closely with the rest of engineering, as well as other stakeholders from our growth, marketing, and product teams, to plan features and build a high quality product that elevates the productivity of all developers.

  • Improve Warp's performance and reliability by building new features or polishing existing parts of the product.

  • Fast prototyping of ideas and concepts and researching the latest industry trends.

  • Work across the entire technical stack to ensure users have the most efficient and delightful experience using Warp. The features you develop will span all aspects of the user experience, making you an expert on what their needs are.

  • Be a mentor and provide thoughtful feedback to your peers, and build strong personal connections with your teammates!

You may be a good fit if...

  • You are passionate about helping developers get more done — would jump at the chance to work on this particular product

  • You have amazing engineering chops, but are also product- and user-focused

  • You have great communication and collaboration skills

  • You’re sensitive to developers’ needs, and can develop warm relationships with developers

  • Bonus:

    • Building native apps in Rust or WASM

    • Shell or Linux-programming

    • OpenGL, WebG, or other graphics programming

    • Building open-source software

At Warp, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace. So if you’re excited about this role, but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in this job description – we encourage you to apply anyways! We are a community of curious learners, and most of us are learning some skills for the first time (like our engineers learning to program Warp in Rust). You might be just the right candidate for this or other roles.

Salary Transparency

Total compensation at Warp consists of two parts: 1) a competitive base salary, and most importantly, 2) meaningful equity.

When we find the right person, we try to put our best foot forward with an offer that excites you. We consider what you’d like to be paid, the skills and level of experience you bring, what similar jobs pay, and make sure there’s equal pay for equal work among those you’ll be working with. The budgeted compensation amount for this role is targeted at $145,000 - $260,000.
