We do, which is why we're building Patreon, a platform that powers membership services for creators with established followings. Patreon strives to provide creators with insight, education, and tools that make it possible to retain creative control while running their creative business, so creators can focus on creating and energizing their fanbases.

  • Collaborate with Patreon designers and product to create the best possible experiences for our creators and patrons.
  • Elevate the quality of our shared codebase, writing highly readable, performant code.
  • Present learnings, review code, and advocate for best practices across the engineering organization.
  • Work with React, Webpack, Babel (EcmaScript 2015) and other modern tools given the opportunity.

  • Design and prototype new features, while reimagining existing features with fellow engineers.

  • Work with React, Webpack, Babel (EcmaScript 2015), Python 3.6, Flask, MySQL, AWS, Redis, and Kafka, introducing other technologies when it makes sense.
  • Work with a supportive team to get things done with the right mix of quality and agility.
  • Advocate for optimized practices across the engineering organization.
  • Collaborate with people from all walks of life, motivated by passion for our shared mission.
  • Build a product that helps creators focus on their work while making a living through our platform.

Projects you may work on:

  • Design, build and deploy scalable stream and graph processing systems to power model training and real-time automated decision making.
  • Expanding our fraud and risk service, which processes thousands of transactions per minute, ensuring our creators and patron are safe and secure.
