Friendbuy is on a mission to change how businesses acquire new customers. Our platform powers referral marketing (refer-a-friend programs) for startups, large enterprises, mobile apps and everyone in between. If you’ve ever referred a friend to Dollar Shave Club, Warby Parker, ClassPass or Glossier, you probably used Friendbuy ☺

The reason we win with great clients is because we have great people. Our team comes from MIT, Harvard, HubSpot, Zappos, Facebook, and we’re backed by leading investors including Greycroft, General Catalyst, eVentures and Conde Nast.  


The Opportunity

Friendbuy is rapidly growing and we are expanding our technology team. We’re hiring software engineers who are ambitious and passionate, including those who seek a path to leadership. We provide a fantastic trajectory for advancing your career. We’re hitting our stride with amazing clients and rapid adoption, but we’re still early stage enough for you to join as a core team member. So if you’re motivated to influence product vision, build a cool company and make a huge impact with meaningful equity, we want to hear from you!


How We Work
 We use Scrum methodologies with two week sprint cycles. We hold regular retrospectives and aim to constantly iterate on our process to identify areas of improvement. Product development is highly collaborative and customer driven.

We have three spacious offices in a WeWork co-working space located in West Hollywood, California. Our facility includes convenient walkable lunch locations, beer on tap, tea and coffee. This location also has a spacious outdoor terrace and plenty of great areas to hang out and enjoy the Southern California weather. 

Skills & Requirements
Our requirements are simple – Python proficiency, full-stack experience and good development practices.  JavaScript experience is highly desirable.  In this role you may be called upon to build new products and features, extend our client-facing REST APIs and JavaScript integration APIs, optimize our global widget delivery system and improve our core infrastructure.  Our platform is high-traffic and we use many modern technology frameworks – but nothing you can’t just pick up ☺

We work hard and strive for excellence, but we also know how to kick back and enjoy the journey. On Friendbuy Fridays we shut it down a little early and hit the patio with beer & wine to socialize with our co-workers and the other startups in our brand new WeWork building.  

Within our private offices each person gets top-of-the-line hardware and optional standing desks. The common areas are spacious and campus-like with a “coffee shop” vibe. There’s plenty of coffee, tea and beer on tap.  A few of the other benefits of working here are:

  • Flexible vacation
  • Competitive salary
  • Continuing education
  • Health insurance
  • Employee stock options
  • Bonuses for hitting company and group goals

We have great customers because we have great people.  Join us!
