Title: Software Engineer

Contact: Shubham Goel <shubham@xxxxxxxxxxx> 650-380-9305
Hiring for: Full time, Intern/Co-op
Redwood City | Full-time | Intern

Relationships are the backbone of the world’s most valuable industries--
from venture capital to philanthropy to any organization engaging in
sales or business development. But actionable information and context
about relationships remain hidden and unstructured in colleagues' and
friends' calendars and email, as well as our own archives--and nobody
has the time to analyze or organize this exponentially growing trail of

Affinity helps enterprises understand their professional relationships
by capturing and structuring communications and operations data in ways
that are relevant to what they're trying to accomplish today. We are
building a platform that gives everyone the critical information they
need at their fingertips to achieve their goals.

Affinity was founded by Ray Zhou and Shubham Goel from Stanford computer
science, along with entrepreneur and investor Joe Lonsdale, who was
inspired by his work at RelateIQ and Palantir. The company has many
prominent investors and leading entrepreneurs backing its vision. We are
convinced that there is a vertical SaaS-enabled platform of networks
that Affinity can create and capture to become a multi-billion dollar
Productivity IT company.

At Affinity, you'll join a team of fewer than 10 where you'll be leading
development of software products and features from day one. Despite
being an early stage company, we are unique in already having a broad
set of engaging technical challenges and a clear direction. If you're
interested in systems, you'll enjoy working on our sync architecture
that captures millions of communication data points. On the other hand,
if you enjoy building user-facing products, you'll work on our suite of
reactive web interfaces.

At this stage of the company, we believe in hiring generalist engineers
who have, or would like to develop, great product ability. Within 3
months, you will own the planning, scoping and implementation of new
features. In the following 3 months, we hope you will be mentoring your
peers or even training and leading your own team.

We are a company with a very bold vision, and we are looking for
pioneers who can lead different parts of the company as we grow.
