San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Thursday, February 2, 2023

About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

Notion is an in-person company, and currently requires its employees to come to the office for two Anchor Days (Mondays & Thursdays) and requests that employees spend the majority of their week in the office (including a third day).

About The Role:

Notion's Growth Engineers make our mission of software ubiquity a reality. Using experiments, creativity, and feature creation, this team accelerates the value of Notion to an ever growing audience of users. We are owners of the ins and outs of our business, using a blend of data, qualitative research, and product intuition to accelerate our impact at this critical time in our company’s journey.

What You'll Achieve:

  • Deliver experiments end-to-end, from ideation to analysis, with velocity and quality to move core business metrics
  • Get to know the Notion customer to understand key points in the customer journey and uncover insights that will drive activation and engagement
  • Plan, shape, and build new features to create a more engaging and personalized early product experience for our customers
  • Work at all levels of the stack from AWS + Node + SQL to React + HTML + CSS

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

  • Shipping polished user interfaces: You can work with others to build and maintain quality user interfaces for a big audience. You have 5+ years of experience and are comfortable using Web technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and a modern UI framework like React. If you've experienced the technical challenges of rapid growth, that's a plus.
  • Data and experimentation: You have Growth Engineering experience at another company. You are comfortable iteratively testing product flows using A/B testing to understand customer behavior and make data-informed decisions.
  • Thoughtful problem-solving: For you, problem-solving starts with a clear and accurate understanding of the context. You can decompose tricky problems and work towards a clean solution, by yourself or with teammates. You're comfortable asking for help when you get stuck.
  • Pragmatism and impact-orientation: You care about business impact and prioritize projects accordingly. You're not just going after cool stuff—you understand the balance between craft, speed, and the bottom line.
  • Putting users first: You think critically about the implications of what you're building, and how it shapes real people's lives. You understand that reach comes with responsibility for our impact—good and bad.
  • Empathetic communication: You communicate nuanced ideas clearly, whether you're explaining technical decisions in writing or brainstorming in real time. In disagreements, you engage thoughtfully with other perspectives and compromise when needed.
  • Team player: For you, work isn't a solo endeavor. You enjoy collaborating cross-functionally to accomplish shared goals, and you care about learning, growing, and helping others to do the same.

Nice to Haves:

  • A history of strong cross-functional collaboration with marketing, sales, and/or other non-technical teams
  • You've heard of computing pioneers like Ada Lovelace, Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, and others—and understand why we're big fans of their work.

We hire talented and passionate people from a variety of backgrounds because we want our global employee base to represent the wide diversity of our customers.
