This role is a Senior Product Engineer who reports to a Senior Engineering Manager and works directly with our apps team. As a Senior Product Engineer on our apps team, you’ll be responsible for building out end to end full stack web apps. This role in particular will be focused on our courses vertical. This means that you will be building out full fledged functionality for millions of end customers who purchase or browse the courses category on Whop. 

What does the role look like?

The apps team boasts perhaps the most energetic engineering roles at Whop. As a Senior Product Engineer on the apps team, you will have significant responsibility over building apps end to end. You will work directly with our design, product, and growth teams to deeply understand what is being built from the beginning of the design phase. You are expected to be highly opinionated and passionate about all aspects of user experience and product. At the same time, you can actually bring highly complex products to life – through code. At Whop, we organize our apps team in pods – each pod is responsible for a vertical and includes engineers, product designers, and members of our growth team. As a Senior Product Engineer on the apps team, you need to be highly capable of communicating with other engineers to complete your initiatives with quality and urgency. You are expected to spec and ticket projects from what needs to be designed all the way to what URL a page or flow will live on.

As a Senior Product Engineer, you must be able to own a large area of our product and keep relevant stakeholders informed through frequent updates and check-ins. You should be capable of owning an 8 week roadmap for your domain, preparing tickets for sprints, reporting KPIs during bi-weekly meetings, and interviewing candidates as we scale the engineering team. 

Your first 90 days will look like the following:

  • Within 7 days, you will understand our product, codebase, design process, and all key stakeholders who you will be working with.
  • Within 30 days, you will be well underway on your first project. You will have worked closely with the product team to create a clear plan of attack and designs are well underway. An example of a project you would be spearheading is building a timeline feed where courses bettors can post their picks.
  • Within 60 days, your first project will be in production.


Who you are

You understand the difference between an excellent product and a mediocre product. You are ruthless, don’t let anyone stand in your way, and are highly opinionated. At the same time, you can admit when you are wrong and will throw your full support behind more sound logic. You are someone who loves programming. You see elegant solutions to everyday problems in the lines of code you write and love to build things from 0-1. You have a sharp eye for detail and are straightforward with your feedback towards others. You don’t leave a room until all loose ends are tied up and everyone is clear on next steps.

You should have real experience building solo projects end to end.

You’re someone who wants to join a startup that is passionate about helping entrepreneurs grow and thrive. The company is growing 10x YoY and you’re someone who can move with urgency, take initiative, and do whatever it takes to win.
