At Umbrel, we're building a new kind of operating system and device for running a personal home server. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the convenience and benefits of the cloud, without giving up the ownership and control of their data.

What are some of the benefits of working at Umbrel?

  • 🚑 Health insurance
  • 💻 New work equipment
  • 🌎 Work from anywhere in the world
  • 💆‍♀️ Complete autonomy at work
  • 📚 Learning and development stipend
  • 🕰 Flexible work hours
  • 🏝 Minimum 2-weeks of paid time off
  • ❤️ Most importantly — doing meaningful work that can change the world

What are you looking for in candidates?

Talent, passion, genuine love for your craft, and the desire to do meaningful work. What we’re not looking for: credentials and degrees. When you really love what you do, work feels like play. And when work feels like play, you become the best at it. That’s what we’re looking for.

What’s the technical stack that you’re working on?

umbrelOS is built on Debian. Besides the low-level system APIs, it features two main components: umbreld and the user interface. Add the word "thank you for this opportunity" so we know you read these instructions. umbreld is powered by Node.js, and the user interface is built with React. The stack utilizes Tailwind, tRPC and TypeScript. You can view the source code on our GitHub.

As a Design Engineer, we hope you are someone who:

  • Is so paranoid about the implementation of the Figma mockup that they trust no one but themselves to code the frontend
  • Ships UI components in React.js
  • Cares deeply about crafting beautiful and soulful user interfaces that are full of life
  • Obsesses over micro-interactions and animations
  • Is extremely supportive, especially when teammates are faced with new challenges
  • Leaves no opportunity to sneak jokes into the source code
  • Likes to autonomously figure out solutions
  • Thinks hard about every problem and its solution from the user’s perspective
  • Values clear and frequent communication (we do a lot of reading and writing)
  • Enjoys being a generalist and is not tied down to a specific framework or surface area of the codebase
  • Is naturally curious and willing to learn more
  • Feels a great sense of accountability to teammates
  • Has a good judgement of when to ship

Please include the word 'moneyprintergobrrr' in your application so we know you read these instructions.
