We are well-funded and institutionally-backed by prominent investors including Sumeru Equity Partners, Grotech Ventures, Greycroft, and Starvest Partners.

The Team

Designing and building the Ceros platform is no easy task. We require the best-of-the-best Software Engineers, Designers, and Quality Engineers, ready to bring the functionality of desktop software to the web, often pushing web browsers to the limits of what’s currently possible.

As part of the Ceros product team, you’ll be working with a small, cross-functional group of the most talented people you’ve ever worked with. We hire only passionate and creative people with a proven and unquestionable ability to execute, and every member of the team is equally responsible for moving the product forward. We find a way.

We have a very dynamic company culture that collaborates daily. We care deeply about the user experience, and we debate passionately about our ideas. When you work at Ceros, you check your ego at the door, and you aren’t afraid to be honest, especially to yourself. We take our jobs seriously but ourselves not so much — whether it’s cracking jokes in the chat room or poking fun at the CEO’s atrocious spelling.

The Role

Affectionately referred to internally as the “Day-Ruiners”, our Quality Engineers work hand in hand with developers, aiming to ensure releases are bug-free.

What we’re looking for from the heart

  • Passion, enthusiasm, energy, humor, and the ability to convey these through video, Slack, and email communications

  • Curiosity; you seek out a wide breadth of information, feedback and input to guide decisions and balance intuition with research and a deep understanding of your surroundings
  • A team-player mentality; you put your team first and are willing and able to do anything to help your team and your peers succeed
  • Comfortability working in a fast paced, hyper growth environment
  • You have the superpower to think beyond existing conventions to solve unusual product design challenges, and the skill to know when to apply this strategically.

  • You can present and communicate complex ideas and their intricacies to different stakeholder groups.
  • You thrive in agile environments. You enjoy working with developers and view them as your partners.
  • You are driven by collectively doing the right thing for the product over competing individually to have your own ideas succeed.
