30+ days ago
Beckon is building a product that finally allows Marketers to better understand and track the success and value of all their efforts. We provide beautiful insight into what works across all marketing channels, whether online or offline. Beckon is off to a great start with customers like Coca Cola, Converse, Gap, Microsoft and others. We have great customers, but there is still a lot of ground to cover and product to build.

That’s where you come in.

You love working on a product that people actually pay for because it provides value. You understand that creating a good product and good technology is hard, no matter how good you are – you also know that it’s worthwhile and satisfying.

You believe building software is more than just implementing specifications that have been handed to you. You enjoy crafting code and working directly with the product managers to figure out how to best do things, and how to best get things done.

You really enjoy collaborating within your team to build great technology – you have experiences to share and like to learn with and from others.
