    Edvo is looking for a Senior Software Engineer (Rust)

    Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the amount of information you’re exposed to every day?

    Have you ever tried to read something and had difficulty focusing due to distractions or “noisy” thoughts?

    How many browser tabs do you have open right now?

    At Edvo, we care about helping all of us think well.

    We're creating tools to help us make better sense of information and transform passive consumption into active thinking. We aim to incrementally reshape a broadcast-biased information economy into one of neighborly exchange, where information silos are torn down and knowledge is collaborative. To achieve this, we must carefully consider first-principles of cognitive science, human-computer-interaction, privacy, trust, and business ethics.

    Making sense in the information age and organizing our lives within it is about connections, and yet another walled-garden app will not do. In order to achieve our goal, we have to help foster an ecosystem that’s bigger than Edvo itself. We have to both… build in public and also put forth a protocol which allows personal knowledge graphs to become interpersonal.

    Our Team

    We’re small, but scrappy – and we need your help to achieve this mission. Today, our product utilizes Typescript, React, and Firebase. As we begin to implement E2E encryption/key management, federated graph protocols, and more – we see a bright future in Rust; In-browser (wasm), in-app, and for decentralized graph database reference implementations (open source).

    We're remote-first, so you can work from anywhere in the world. We maintain core working hours of 9:30AM to 2PM Pacific, when we're all online and available at the same time. We strive to be clear in our communication and our foundation is based on trust.

    We lead with empathy. We are problem solvers and we recognize that the first step is to have an intimate understanding of our users' unique experiences. Whether it’s discussing feedback with our community or working with a team member on a project, we always listen and ask questions. We aren’t one-size-fits-all; we provide thoughtful solutions, celebrate differences, and commit to collaboration.

    Join Us

    We seek passionate and skilled developers with a high degree of emotional intelligence who are looking to make a difference in how people learn and make sense of the world. We have a wide variety of systems engineering and UI challenges running the gamut from database internals, inverted indices, cryptography, graph drawing, and UI workflows.

    It doesn’t matter if you have one year of experience or thirty – Applicants should be very comfortable in Rust, with a good grasp of Computer Science fundamentals, and at least a passing knowledge of Typescript.

    LOCATION: Remote, primarily based in Pacific and Eastern timezones
