Engineering Careers

  • Do you want to build products used by the many of world’s leading startups & enterprises, using great open-source tools?
  • Do you want to work in a modern software engineering environment, producing testable, maintainable, peer-reviewed code with a highly collaborative team of like-minded individuals?
  • Do you have an insatiable appetite for all types of improvement, and a willingness to learn new things constantly?  
  • Are you sensitive to users’ needs, and interested in developing warm relationships with people outside the engineering team?

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.

Engineering Culture

We build software that gives our users the power to enable, measure, and support personal and professional growth – privately and securely.

Rapid Iteration

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.

No Timesheets

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.
