Staff Software Engineer

Engineering, Full-time, North America - Remote


Who We Are

At Tatem, we're reimagining the tools people use everyday in work and life. We’re on a mission to build software that begs to be experienced; software that is engaging, collaborative, and extraordinary. We’re starting with the most intelligent email platform ever built.

We’re a small, scrappy, and UX-obsessed team that values ownership, empowerment, and execution. We have a flat organizational structure, so everyone at Tatem works to make a direct impact on our business. To be clear, we do things differently at Tatem, and it’s not a fit for everyone. You can read more about our culture at

We believe that the best products are built by the best people, period. So, we provide employees the freedom to work wherever they work best (within US timezones). This allows us to take advantage of the deeper, more focused work that's possible in a remote environment, while still collaborating in real time.

Please note that Tatem is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
