Headquarters: Boston, MA
tl;dr: We're growing quickly and could use another excellent engineer with macOS experience to work with our CTO. We're in Boston, but remote is ok if you have substantial time-zone overlap.
Who we are
Tuple is a macOS app for remote pair programming.
We founded the company 2 years ago because we hated pairing over Slack and Zoom, and believed that by focusing on remote pairing exclusively, we could create a tool developers would actually like.
We bootstrapped the company from our own savings, and haven't hired anyone beyond part-time consultants. The full-time team is still just our three cofounders: Ben, Spencer, and Joel.
We're still in the scrappy startup phase: our "office" is Joel's second bedroom.
Despite these constraints, things are working really well. We have many hundreds of happy customers and thousands of paid users. We're growing revenue way faster than most bootstrapped business.
Want even more details on how things are going? Ben hosts a weekly podcast where he shares regular updates.
We'd like to hire a macOS developer to work full-time with our CTO, Spencer. He's been doing the work of a team of engineers, and it's time for him to have an extra set of hands.
You should expect to pair with him (using Tuple, naturally) fairly regularly.
We love junior developers, but this role is for someone senior.
Here's how to tell if you'd be a good fit for this job.
Things you might work on
Tuple presents a fairly simple interface to its users, but under the covers it's a complicated piece of software that must solve many interesting problems:
We don't expect you to understand all these topics, but would like you to be eager to start exploring them.

We're looking for someone great, not someone cheap.
If you're expensive but incredible, we can probably make it work.
