Software Engineering
New York, NY, USA · Remote

Bubble is a revolutionary software development platform with a simple mission: make technology accessible to everyone and help people bring their ideas to life. Rather than specializing in one or two aspects of web development, Bubble’s full-stack visual programming interface does it all, allowing you to customize your UX with a drag-and-drop editor, build out logic, manage databases, and integrate with anything via plugins and API.

With all the tools needed to build a site like Facebook or Airbnb, anyone from first-time entrepreneurs to enterprise-level companies can take an idea from concept to fully functional, scalable reality faster and cheaper than you could with just code. As the only full-stack, no-code platform on the market with over 3 million users in over 100 countries, Bubble is breaking down the barriers to entrepreneurship and innovation across the globe.

What we’ve achieved:

Our product is working, and we are thriving. Entire VC-backed companies have been built entirely on Bubble. After finding product market fit and 8 years of bootstrapping, we raised a $100 million Series A and we’re one of the fastest-growing companies in the New York tech ecosystem.

You can build just about anything on Bubble. For example, all new hires build Bubble apps as part of their onboarding, and a recent hire on our Customer Success team built their own version of the social media application Goodreads in 4 days. It has user authentication, an activity feed, upvotes, commenting, followers, lists, account management, live updates, a fully loaded database, API connectivity, and more.

About the role:

We are looking for a staff engineer to join our Editor team. This leader will drive the technical vision for Bubble’s core language, and the UX that allows our users to manipulate it. We view Bubble as a new programming language, and we deal with most of the same considerations that traditional languages do such as expressivity, modularity, readability and documentation, and predictable, intuitive semantics. Unlike traditional languages, our IDE and language are built around each other, which offers the potential for intuitive building experiences other languages can’t offer. We view both our language and IDE as having a long way to go to reach their vision state, and we’re looking to this hire to clarify the vision and drive towards it.

Staff engineers at Bubble are expected to lead the technical vision for their teams as well as having a strong voice in product direction. They partner with engineering managers to help uplevel and empower their teammates, and we expect them to be excellent mentors who love sharing their passion for technology and helping their teammates grow as engineers. We have a culture that emphasizes trust and autonomy, where teams are given problems to tackle rather than solutions to implement, and we look to our staff engineers to drive an empowering culture of technical excellence.

In this role, you’ll:

  • Problem solving – designing a programming language and IDE is a big challenge, and the Editor team deals with some of the thorniest problems at Bubble

  • Driving codebase improvement – Bubble’s codebase dates back to 2012, and we are looking for a hire who enjoys the process of modernizing complex legacy systems

  • Delivering value to users – the language we build is used day-in, day-out by entrepreneurs and business owners who’ve bet their companies on our platform, and we have a culture of continuously shipping improvements to make their lives better

  • Mentorship and communication – at Bubble, staff engineers aren’t just great technologists, they’re leaders who collaborate across the company and help their teammates improve as engineers

  • Product strategy – partner with product managers, designers, leadership, and other engineers to deliver results for Bubble as a whole

  • Technical innovation – help us push the envelope of what programming can be, including integrating with AI, improving our language semantics, thinking through type checking at scale, among many other challenges

About you:

  • Most qualified candidates will be a current staff/principal engineer, tech lead, engineering manager, or very experienced senior engineer

  • We look for experience doing full-stack and systems engineering in complicated codebases. Experience with programming language design, functional programming, compilers, and other language-related topics is preferred but not required. No specific technologies are a hard requirement, but we value prior experience with typescript, react or solid.js, and node.js.

  • Experience as a mentor or manager is required

Our tech stack:

While we do not require new hires to be experts in our tech stack on day 1, familiarity and a willingness to learn fast is helpful. Our tech stack includes:

  • Frontend: Typescript, SolidJS

  • Backend: Typescript, Node.js, Rust, Redis, Postgres, TimescaleDB

  • Infrastructure: AWS - CDK / Terraform / Lambda, Kafka, ECS, Typescript, Elastic

We offer competitive compensation aligned to tier one markets, such as New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle. Our estimated salary for this role at Bubble ranges from $164,000 to $246,000. Actual pay is determined by multiple factors such as skills, qualifications, experience and market demand.


For this role, Bubble is currently only considering candidates who are authorized to work in the US and are within the New York City metro area. We will provide relocation assistance to those who are interested in moving to the NYC area.

While we do not have any in-office attendance requirements, we prefer hiring people within commuting distance of our NYC office because we value getting together in person regularly. For those who enjoy working from our Manhattan office on a more regular basis, we offer catered lunches, and happy hours, among other fun perks.


In addition to cash and equity compensation, Bubble offers a robust benefits package equating to roughly $20,000 in additional annual compensation:.

Our benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • Comprehensive health coverage

  • 401K Matching

  • Wellness and Work Enablement stipends

  • Flexible PTO

  • A Sabbatical program

  • Relocation reimbursement program up to $8K of moving expenses

Join us, and let’s democratize access to technology together! If this sounds like you, apply! If you don’t meet all of the qualifications but think you could be a match, we’d still love the chance to review your application.

At Bubble, we encourage people from all ages, abilities, and experiences to apply.
