Why join us

Our story


Early computing pioneers envisioned a future where machines on our desks could amplify our imagination, extend our intellect, and help us model information in ways never before seen. This is the type of tool we want to build together at Notion — one that gives you the software you can mold and shape like clay to solve your problems your way.

We’ve heard Notion described many ways. It can be as simple as a blank piece of paper, making writing feel light and delightful. It can be as complex as a relational database that stores huge amounts of data. We sometimes compare it to a set of Legos (if Legos were designed by The New York Times). But at its core, Notion is a toolbox of software building blocks that let you manage your life and work however you find most useful.

To make this possible, we’ve brought together a diverse team of individuals passionate about computing, history, art, alternative programming languages, music, skateboarding, and craft. Today, we’re growing faster than ever across offices in San Francisco, New York, Dublin, Hyderabad and Tokyo

About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

About The Role:

Millions of people use Notion — and this number is increasing every day. That means a million people trust us to deliver a fast, reliable, and secure experience, and we value this more than anything.

This is where you come in — to help us forge a performant and reliable path forward to the future.

  • Write clean, secure, tested, and documented code.
  • Design & enhance the Notion platform with new capabilities, as and when the need arises.
  • Contribute to monitoring & scaling the architecture of the platform and the infrastructure.

  • Contribute to recruiting of new backend employees

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

  • 6+ years of experience building scalable platforms. 
  • Good understanding of database (Relational Or Nosql) internals like transactions, indexes. Experience in schema design.
  • 2+ years of experience working on the AWS platform, and acquaintance with technologies like Elastic Beanstalk, AWS Lambda, Elastic Load Balancer.
  • Good understanding of docker internals.
  • Good communication skills, good leadership skills, attention to detail, a sound understanding of algorithms, and object-oriented programming.

Nice to Haves:

  • You're proficient with any part of our technology stack: React, TypeScript, Node.js, Memcached, Postgres, Docker, and Elasticsearch.
  • You've heard of computing pioneers like Ada Lovelace, Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, and others—and understand why we're big fans of their work.
  • You have interests outside of technology, such as in art, history, or social sciences.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Notion.

About The Role:

 

You'll grow and mentor an engineering team in the Hyderabad office, responsible for developing the external platform that ties Notion to the entire ecosystem of 3rd party applications, ranging from core Notion concepts to tighter bespoke integrations. You’ll work with your team to ship key platform features to all Notion users, from individuals to large enterprises. You’ll facilitate the collaboration of the team with the Notion San Francisco / New York offices, leveraging your technical judgment, managerial experience, and command of engineering best practices to collaborate and deliver high quality, effective, and delightful software.

What You'll Achieve:

  • You'll recruit, coach, and develop a diverse and inclusive team of engineers; you'll ensure your team is regularly receiving feedback and making rapid progress on personal and professional goals.
  • You'll facilitate planning—the prioritization, sequencing, and staffing of work—for your team.
  • You'll ensure your team builds, ships, and maintains powerful and engaging features for a global Notion user base.
  • You'll collaborate closely with peers from other functions—Marketing, Partnerships, Support, and Sales, to name a few—on our overall platform strategy, ongoing maintenance and support, and rolling out features to a broad set of audiences: third-party developers, integration partners, enterprise customers, and end users.

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

 

  • You are able to create team environments that are at once collaborative, empowering, supportive, and challenging—ones where engineers do their best work.
  • You have a sufficiently deep background in product and technology that you can ask the right questions of your team, balance product, tech, and people concerns, and make hard tradeoffs.
  • You are able to coordinate goals and projects that depend on a global engineering team, and drive towards a high quality bar.
  • You have a high tolerance for ambiguity and change - you enjoy jumping into whatever areas need attention and learning as-you-go.
  • You value empathetic and direct communication, particularly when giving and receiving feedback.

Nice to Haves:

 

  • You have managed engineering teams at startups before, particularly during periods of rapid growth and organizational change.
  • You have experience working on public-facing APIs, app ecosystems, and developer-facing products.
  • You've heard of computing pioneers like Ada Lovelace, Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, and others—and understand why we're big fans of their work.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Notion.
