Ready: Senior Full Stack Engineer

Headquarters: Toronto, Canada


👋 Join the pack

Hi! We are Ready. A team of builders, designers, and serial founders determined to make calendars sane again. We’re assembling a global team of wonderful, diverse people to create a product with real impact. We’re backed by the best seed funds and angels in San Francisco and the Valley (soon to be announced), and have the support we need to get this right.

🤔 What is Ready?

Ready is the first calendar designed to solve the meeting problem. It stops them from crowding your day and makes the ones you have worth their weight.

We’re building Ready because for some wild reason, someone decided calendars should be designed to jam our days full of meetings, most of which are kinda useless.

We don’t need calendars to book more meetings. We need less of them, and the ones we do have should be an awesome use of time.

It’s time for a new calendar. So we’re building it — a calendar that results in fewer meetings, more focus, and better collaboration with your team.

👷‍♀️ What’s it like to work at Ready?

We believe building a world changing company doesn’t have to come at the expense of your personal freedom and enjoyment. We’re remote, so you can work from anywhere in the world. Most days we try to find some time together between 10AM – 2PM EST, but outside of that, we work on our own time.

🙌 What we offer

Competitive salary in USD
4 weeks paid vacation + additional
Ability to work when you want, where you want
Latest MacBook Pro + budget to customize your space
Annual company retreat with full expenses paid (post covid 😅)

Iterate Always: We constantly seek feedback, never get attached to our ideas, and always refine our creations.
