Streak Vancouver

Building a world class engineering team

Streak opened our Vancouver engineering office in early 2019 to add world class talent to our team. Streak has big product ambitions and we need more great engineers to help us implement them. Our goal is to grow to 10 engineers in 2019.

The Vancouver office is a first class distributed office, not just some place we outsource stuff out to. We want to encourage collaboration and learning between engineers across our two offices so we'll be splitting projects across offices.

Why Vancouver?

... and other commonly asked questions

Why Vancouver?

  • This is our first time opening a separate engineering office and we understand that it will take time and resources to make successful. Being in the same timezone and a short flight away makes collaboration a lot easier.
  • We really respect the great engineering talent in Vancouver.
  • Both founders (Aleem and Omar) are Canadian and have a bias and affinity towards Canada.
  • Canada has a sane immigration system which opens up access to the global talent pool.

What's your stack?

Our backend is running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). We use Kubernetes and GKE for orchestration. Server code is written in Java and some Kotlin. We make extensive use of GCP's managed services and are always at the forefront of GCP's evolution:

On the frontend we've built the InboxSDK library (https://www.inboxsdk.com) to power our best-in-class integration with Gmail. We use React as a view layer and Flow for static typing. State and data synchronization is accomplished with a battle tested in-house framework that makes extensive use of streams (https://gist.github.com/staltz/868e7e9bc2a7b8c1f754).

Anything else I should know?

We will be very competitive with compensation, we're not opening a Vancouver office to get cheap labor. Also, our options are extremely valuable as we have extended exercise windows (https://zachholman.com/posts/fuck-your-90-day-exercise-window/). This is pretty rare amongst startups and we're proud to offer it.
