At Retool, we’re changing the way software is built. We’ve developed the fastest way to build internal tools, saving companies time, resources, and engineering bandwidth. Whether it’s refunding orders, underwriting loans, managing marketplaces, rolling out new features, analyzing transactions, or providing customer support, Retool makes it dramatically faster and easier to build internal tools that teams need. We believe that the future of software development lies in being a force multiplier for developers and technical builders, helping them move considerably faster building a lot more software.  We’re looking for highly collaborative people as we build a world-class team to support this mission and we’d love for you to join us!


It’s been a busy year: we've helped our customers build nearly-countless tools to do their business better, raised a series C, more than tripled our revenue and overall grown the business. And we've had a blast doing it. This year, we have even more exciting revenue, product, and headcount goals. Without a seasoned and exceptional engineering team, we risk Retool’s success. You’ll work closely with Retool’s TA team,  head of engineering, cross-functional stakeholders, and engineers to understand the hiring bar, but we'll look to you to drive process improvements, hiring strategy, and execution with our technical recruiting team. 


The technical recruiter will be an integral part of our talent team, helping with the primary goal of hiring world-class engineers across all of our teams and product areas. It’s an incredible opportunity to build process from the ground up while also having an enormous impact on our culture. We have big goals this year and to get there, we need a seasoned technical recruiter to identify motivationally-aligned engineers excited to build one of Sequoia Capital’s breakout companies. 

We’ll look to you to deliver best practices, source excellent and relevant talent, and grow our engineering teams to ensure we hit our product roadmap goals. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hire the people who build the product many engineers live in daily; in fact, a lot of Retool employees were former users! As the company grows, so will our needs. We’ll leverage your skills (and hopefully your network, too!) to grow our recruiting team. 


The talent team at Retool is small but extremely impactful. Recruiting has historically been a team sport, and we're proud of the recruiting-forward organization we've built. You’ll partner with the team to set goals, ensure a stellar candidate experience, and achieve our aggressive hiring targets. 

We’re a diverse bunch with a variety of backgrounds: some of us come from industries unrelated to tech and others have grown up on a steady diet of Bay-area companies. We’re a dedicated hard-working group that likes to have fun and we’re looking to add folks to help us expand our culture. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!

And, it might be helpful to note: we’ve returned to the office 3 days a week in the Mission district of San Francisco!

An Insider's view of Retool

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Retool, Engineering, Product, and Design work closely throughout the entire product development process. Designers collaborate across various product lines to create cohesive designs and meet the needs of our users. Our structure encourages open communication and collective decision-making, with everyone empowered to share input and ideas.

What is your vision for the company?

Software has changed our lives, but it remains far too difficult to build. Code is great and the best way to get a computer to do something—but should we write as much code as we do? We think not. Retool is a new, better way to program so that people everywhere can build custom software that works.



What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

An open-ended platform like Retool means our audience is incredibly diverse. Creating messaging that resonates with everyone reinforces a lot of what I find invigorating about product marketing—talking to customers, using those insights to fuel our roadmap and enablement materials, and iterating to deliver a message that’s exciting to developers.
