At Render, we are building a powerful, easy-to-use cloud platform to host anything online, from simple static sites to complex applications with dozens of microservices. Render offers the flexibility of traditional cloud providers without their complexity and maintenance headaches so developers and businesses can focus on building products instead of managing servers.

We're a talented and diverse group solving a problem faced by every development team. We iterate quickly while placing the utmost importance on user experience, quality, and reliability. Our organic, product-led growth has already attracted over a million developers. Customers include innovators like Mitchell Hashimoto, the co-founder of HashiCorp, climate unicorns like Watershed, and global enterprises like Red Bull. With our rapidly increasing revenue, we're on to something big.

Applying to Render:

We're looking for candidates with high integrity, low ego, and an insatiable drive to learn. We use reasoned discussion and constant feedback to improve as individuals and as a company. We cultivate mutual trust and respect, empowering us to debate ideas effectively and create the best outcomes for our customers and our team.

We especially encourage members of underrepresented groups in the tech community to apply and understand that not all successful candidates will meet each requirement listed.

Our interview process is unique to each role, and we value the candidate experience just as much as our customer experience. We hope your conversations with us reflect a thoughtful process that is illuminative, enjoyable, and respectful of your time.

An Insider's view of Render

What's something quirky about your company?

From Aeropress to traditional coffee brewers, we believe in diverse methods of making coffee. We have about as many devices for making coffee as the number of employees. Despite that, there’s little attempt to convert others to a particular brew method. We keep it judgment-free, even for those that choose tea.


Software Engineer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Because we're a startup in a pretty unique space, engineers are exposed to problems that are truly interesting and require deep technical knowledge! We get to solve problems that range from cloud infrastructure quirks, to running untrusted user workloads, to designing features that make it easier for users to interact with their services.


Software Engineer

What does career growth look like on your team?

At fast-growing startups, Render included, career growth is constant since there is always more to do than people to do it. But Render combines that organic growth with thoughtful feedback and mentorship. We've held a 'feedback week', paired new hires with mentors, and have regular manager discussions to foster calibration and development ideas.
