Linktree is the market-leading linking platform that was the first of its kind, creating an entirely new category in tech. Linktree is the identity layer of the internet, allowing users to curate a singular destination housing what’s most important to them, in real time.

With a user base of 16M+, Linktree helps brands, influencers, small businesses, activists and everyday creators carve out their place and reach their full potential online. The world’s biggest influencers and creators from Selena Gomez to Pharrell Williams, as well as big brands like HBO and Facebook are using Linktree to connect their followers to their entire online ecosystem.

The platform averages 30,000 daily sign ups and has close to a billion visits to Linktrees each month. In the past 12 months, Linktree has gained phenomenal momentum growing its user base by 3x with no signs of slowing down.

In March 2021, we raised $45 million in Series B funding. The funding will be used to expand headcount globally, develop product features and go towards making Linktree the best possible place to work for our team!

Role:

As Linktree grows, so do the demands for security.

As a Senior Software Engineer on the Auth team, you will create low-friction and secure ways for users to access their accounts and build low-effort pathways for engineers to secure their services. You will be working with both product and engineering teams to understand their needs and drive solutions to meet them.

  • Working with a tech stack that includes PHP (legacy app), Node.js (Typescript), React (Typescript), GraphQL and AWS. You will mostly be using Typescript but we’re looking for a generalist who is happy to use the best tool as needed.
  • Collaborating on solution designs and decisions with the team.
  • Driving the full lifecycle of development through gathering requirements, collaborating on solution designs, writing code, deploying to production and monitoring for issues
  • Collaborating with and mentoring other engineers on the team.

Requirements:

  • Familiarity with authentication and authorisation problems and solutions like OAuth, JWTs and Machine to Machine authentication.
  • Worked with PHP, Typescript, Node.js, React and/or AWS.
