Whalesync makes data syncing easy. Our automation platform syncs data between key business tools like HubSpot and Airtable. We give developers and ops teams two-way, real-time sync, so they can build production-ready workflows.
Whalesync launched during Y Combinator’s S21 cohort. Since then we’ve raised $4M from some of the world’s top investors. We’re now trusted by hundreds of companies like Ramp, Webflow, and Alchemy, and process millions of transactions every day. Many of our customers enjoy the product so much they tell all their friends.
What we value
We’re always shipping - fast, scrappy people thrive here.
We’re obsessed with goals - we’re here to turn a small startup into a long-lasting company.
We start with the customer - we all talk to users and work backward from their problems.
We have an outlier output bar - we’re an intentionally small, highly effective team.
What we’re looking for
Real-time, bi-directional data syncing across an infinite number of tools is a hard technical problem. Offering this in a way that’s simple and accessible is an equally hard design problem.
We’re looking for someone who is excited by this challenge and the potential impact we can make if we do this right. You’re a product-minded engineer who thrives in a highly autonomous environment. Shipping fast and building awesome things brings you joy.
What you’ll be doing
Startups have 70+ SaaS tools on average… data integration is a problem that isn’t going away. While there are many simple automation and ETL pipeline tools out there, Whalesync is the only data syncing product that is developer-grade, but no-code simple.
Here you’ll have the opportunity to work on complex data challenges alongside a small team of seasoned and smart engineers. You’ll have full ownership of projects and work closely with our customers. More specifically, you will:
Build many core functionalities that make Whalesync the most powerful data automation tool (e.g. data merging, sync rollbacks, scaling to millions of records, etc.)
Build many core features that make Whalesync simple and accessible for both developers and non-developers (e.g. sync previews, auto-schema creation, data visualization, etc.)
Work directly with our customers to help solve their problems
Ship a bunch of code!
Postgres and Redis data stores
