We all have important information we need to manage, and protecting it should be easy. Over 100,000 businesses and millions of people log in to 1Password to unlock smart, simple access to everything they care about. Our vision is to create a safer, simpler digital future for everyone, and our culture values simplicity, honesty and a human-centric approach to solving problems. Come help us unlock peace of mind so everyone can stay safer online.
The Product, Frameworks and Tooling team focuses on building the frameworks, libraries, tools, and platforms on which our feature teams rely. This group is responsible for building scalable, reliable, and performant APIs which increase developer velocity and enable delivering a consistent, secure experience for our users.
The Tooling team within PFT is building experimentation frameworks, localization support, and other services across all our clients - browser extension, mobile, desktop, and web. In this role, you will be responsible for technical strategy and delivery of projects that enable other engineering teams within the company to move faster and produce higher quality code when building delightful experiences for users.
We have back-end services written in Go; web-based clients written in TypeScript; and desktop, mobile, and browser extension client apps built around a common Rust core, all of which you will work with at some point.
This is a remote opportunity within Canada and the US.

What we're looking for:

  • You have 7+ years of experience building resilient and reliable software. You’re able to lead technical discussions and drive decisions.
  • You’re passionate about TypeScript and have significant experience using it in a full-stack environment.
  • You enjoy Rust, and are familiar with writing idiomatic Rust code.
  • You have a profound respect for user privacy and information security.
  • You learn continuously, share knowledge, and mentor engineers across the org by providing code review and feedback to juniors and peers on technical designs, merge requests, and other areas.
  • Demonstrated capacity to plan large-scale projects and drive them to completion, especially projects where your team is not directly responsible for doing all the work.
  • Ability to deliver impact immediately and iteratively throughout a project’s lifecycle, and measure the impact your team’s work is providing.
  • Experience building frameworks or services that other development teams can leverage.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, with the ability to drive discussions with technical and non-technical audiences and describe the work your team is doing with confidence and a depth of understanding.

What you can expect:

  • Help set the technical direction for the software and services that help deliver on our company's mission.
  • Write code and implement tooling with a focus on ease-of-use, reliability, and durability.
  • Partner with internal cross-functional teams including Product, Design and QA to help prioritize work that balances product requirements, customer value and technical needs.
  • Share your skills and expertise to help junior developers grow and senior developers expand their knowledge.
  • Collaborate with peers to write and review design documents and code.
  • Remain curious and seek opportunities to expand and deepen your technical knowledge and leadership skills.

Bonus points for:

  • Experience with writing browser extensions.
  • Experience with Go, which is used in our server-side back-end.
  • Familiarity with writing async Rust code and the tokio ecosystem.
Even if you don't tick all these boxes, we want to hear from you. We understand that everyone's experiences are unique, and you may bring with you something valuable that we hadn’t thought to put on this list.
