The Company

Dover is the modern recruiting department for the world's top companies. We combine domain expertise with best-in-class automation to help companies hire the best talent for their open roles.

Recruiting is a $50B industry in the US, but recruiting departments and agencies still have incredibly manual processes. Recruiters spend countless hours on administrative work, so they have less time to do what they do best: pitch and close candidates.

We've built a better way. Our advanced ML-powered matching software finds the perfect candidates for a particular role, and our NLP outreach system reaches out to those candidates in a highly personalized way. We're automating the entire recruiting stack, from sourcing to scheduling.

Engineering at Dover

The Dover engineering team is small but incredibly effective. We value productivity over face-time, action over inaction, and focus over feature creep.

As one of our first few engineers, you'll have a massive level of ownership over our engineering culture, end-to-end ownership over the systems that you build, and influence on product direction.

At the core of what we're building is a simple question—"is person X a good fit for job Y"—but doing this well is challenging, requiring a combination of large-scale data scraping, aggregation and processing. We pride ourselves in automating things nobody thought possible.

Our Stack

We primarily code in Python, with TypeScript and React on the frontend.. We leverage Kubernetes heavily for our orchestration and deployment. We also make extensive use of Google Cloud, Docker, Postgres, and ElasticSearch within our infrastructure.

About You

You're a full-stack or backend engineer with 3+ years of software experience at one or more companies with a strong engineering culture. You're ready to be an individual contributor, design and build sophisticated systems quickly, and work in a fast-paced environment.

We are currently hiring in San Francisco, but will make exceptions for particularly strong candidates. We offer competitive salary ($130k-170k, depending on experience), meaningful equity, full benefits, and much more.

Our Commitment to Diversity

At Dover, we are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We do this because we know the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.

Dover does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, non-disqualifying physical or mental disability, national origin, veteran status or any other basis covered by appropriate law.

All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit, and business need. We encourage candidates of underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
