StackShare Weekly Digest

June 23, 2017


The cat is officially out of the bag: "StackShare is quietly becoming a secret weapon for developers and Silicon Valley CTOs". This past week, TechCrunch highlighted StackShare and helped us announce our $1.5M seed round, led by Cervin Ventures, Precursor Ventures, and a handful of amazing angels from Square, Salesforce, and Facebook. Just call us #secretweapon from now on 😎

We're on a mission to change the way that every developer on Earth builds software, and we're looking to bring on more teammates that want to be a part of making this happen. We're looking for a Senior Engineer, a Technical Content Manager, and a Developer Evangelist. Email us with a link to your StackShare profile, your resume/LinkedIn profile, which role you're applying for, and why you'd like to join, and we'll be in touch! Details on our open roles can be found here.
