Buffalo / NYC-Flatiron / SFNY Coast to Coast, US Coast to Coast
Our primary engineering office is located in the Larkinville (aka “the Hydraulics”) section of Buffalo, NY in a recently restored historic building dating back to 1858. Not in Buffalo? Not a problem! We also have several engineers located at our NYC office, and many team members working remotely. Additionally, our corporate HQ is in downtown San Francisco if that better suits you.
We build software that gives our users the power to enable, measure, and support personal and professional growth – privately and securely.
We release rapidly, thanks to our automated build, test, and deploy pipeline. Merged pull requests are tested & live within minutes.
Weekly, Sacred 1:1 Time
You’ll get 1:1 time with leadership to ensure you get consistent feedback, as well as opportunity to share your own insights and ideas about how Torch can be better.
Collaboration Over Complexity
You help prioritize. Work on everything, or focus on a specific area – you get a say! As a team, we share in every victory and every opportunity to improve.
Many of us have had consulting or agency jobs with a focus on time tracking. Our Engineering team is focused on building a great product, not on racking up billables.
Flexible Work Arrangement
We take work/life balance very seriously, offering our team members flexibility in when and where they work, and always keep our hours in-check.
Come, As You Are
We’re here to build, and our environment reflects it. We find that casual dress, espresso, plentiful snacks & team lunch outings support us in building a great product.
Torch is built on a combination of open source software, and integrated with great SaaS platforms where it makes sense. Our team members are often found participating in the local tech Community and sharing the knowledge we’ve acquired while building, evolving and supporting our platform.

How We Hire
No brain teasers, no coding obscure sort algorithms in exotic languages from memory. Our interview process focuses on finding alignment in our values, and seeing how we can approach technical problems together. We’ll work through scenarios, assess pros/cons, ask questions, make assumptions and propose solutions as a team.
The positions below are examples of the various roles technologists play within our organization. Don’t see one that applies to you exactly? Don’t sweat it, you should still apply if Torch appeals to you. We hire people, and the best people don’t always fit into a mold.
