Careers at SimplyCircle

Leverage the power of technology to strengthen the social fabric of our communities and help us feel more connected to people around us.

Full-Stack Engineer

(Full Time - Sunnyvale, CA)

As human beings, we are inherently social creatures who belong to dozens of different groups: families, schools, professional communities, clubs, and teams. But many groups miss out on engagement opportunities as they rely on outdated tools that make it difficult to connect, communicate and organize in today’s busy and increasingly mobile world.

SimplyCircle is the only online and mobile platform that combines the reach of an email marketing tool with the engagement of a private social network. Group leaders can send announcements, create events, get volunteer signups, and share documents and photos. And group members can engage socially, both with group leaders and with each other.

If you are excited about being part of the founding team of engineers at an early stage startup that is on a mission to make the world more connected, one community at a time, join us!
