Company Overview

The.com is a place. It's where you make your websites. It's where you share your work with others. It's where the next generation of creators are rebuilding the internet. Request invite at The.com

☕  How We Work

Our team is made up of individuals who combat the status quo. We think it’s fun to push the boundaries of what's been done. We are highly iterative. We love learning. We jam on problems together. Each team member brings an individual element to the team that adds to the unique culture.

Our core values are:
- Trust
- Humility
- Exploration

We’re a distributed team across 3 countries including the US, United Kingdom, and Argentina. Although our goal is to be back in our office as soon as possible (optional).  

It’s needless to say, complete inclusivity is the standard.

About the Job

So, we all agree that building a website sucks. Even the hottest platforms like Webflow are just replacing existing behaviors with new UI. We’re looking for a team member who is asking why? Why does creating online have to suck? Someone who knows the future of the internet looks vastly different and wants to be a part of making it that way.

The.com is looking for an engineering rebel. We are hungry to add an expert engineer who is obsessed with the newest and best technology, with learning and improving and obsessed with creating a world-changing product.  If you’re developing at the highest levels and want to change the world (and not in a corny way) The.com is your next career stop.
