✨ About The Role

PropelAuth provides the right level of authentication for all stages of a company. New startups can use our hosted pre-built UIs which provide the simplest possible integration. Out of the box, our customers immediately have the same auth experience as large tech companies like Slack. As those startups grow, they can use our APIs and component libraries to pull aspects of the experience into their product.

More than just authentication, we will also provide useful functions tied to a "user" or "organization", like analytics, billing/subscriptions, etc.

About the role

As an early stage startup, we pride ourselves on shipping code frequently and learning as we go. We also have critical security, performance, and uptime requirements, so finding the right ways to ship frequently within those requirements is very important.

We all love to learn and grow. Our leadership team has experience working with and mentoring engineers at both startups and top companies like Palantir. We'll work with our hires to craft it to their interests, skill set, and long term career goals.

If you’re passionate about building products that make a complex problem easy for your end users, this job is for you. As one of the first engineering hires, you’ll have the opportunity to shape both the product and the engineering culture.


  • Our backend is written in Rust with a few parts in Python
  • Design understandable, performant, and secure APIs for authentication and authorization
  • Design architecture for high availability - as a critical part of our customer's stack, uptime and performance are incredibly important
  • Be creative! In addition to auth, we want to provide our customers with all the tools they need to be successful. - - This could be detailed analytics, subscriptions, or a lot of things we haven't thought of. As an early stage company, we like supporting our employee's ideas.
  • Help manage infrastructure with Packer and Pulumi on AWS
  • Work with our DevRel team to understand the needs of our users

What we look for from you:

  • 3+ years engineering experience, Rust preferred but not required
  • Experience working independently on small teams
  • Excited to build products that customers love
  • Ability to move quickly, but carefully
  • Experience with authentication or security appreciated but not required

Working With Us:

  • We're a remote-first team, spread over the US. Working hours are flexible but we ask that you have 4-5 hours of overlap with 9am-5pm PST
  • We provide standard benefits - health insurance, PTO, etc
  • We strongly believe in hiring employees that are experts at what they do, and that our job is to support each other
