What We Do

Hone is reimagining leadership, management and people skills training for modern teams. Traditional corporate classroom training is inconvenient and ineffective (70% is forgotten within a day), and pre-recorded e-learning videos are impersonal and poorly suited for interactive people skills training. As the world of work becomes ever more dynamic and distributed, this is a problem that needs solving (and a $30bn industry that needs disrupting).

Hone is the first scaled platform and marketplace for live online, synchronous, instructor-led training classes for leadership, management and soft skills. Our unique solution allows organizations to source, manage and deliver live online video-based training at scale and measure its impact.

Why Join Us

We're a startup with experienced founders (CEO Tom Griffiths co-founded gaming unicorn FanDuel; Savina Perez built successfully acquired HR Tech companies). We're on a mission to reimagine leadership education for the world's next generation of leaders, and backed by some of Silicon Valley's top investors. It's an exciting place to be, and joining at this early stage will be an incredible journey where you will have an outsized impact on our company, culture and customers.

We lean in to distributed work (after all, our solution is powering remote training) so have flexible work from home (or wherever) policies. We're dedicated to building an exceptional experience for our learners, and a fun, productive environment steeped in best practices for our product development team.

About The Role

As a Senior Engineer on our early engineering team you will part of a small but mighty product development team shaping the product and architecture. You will build out new functionality on our stack (Python/Django, React) following engineering best practices and agile principles. We have a lot of exciting functionality to roll out, including learning analytics for our clients and a next generation live learning experience for our learners. This role will work primarily remotely, with the option of being in-person sessions in San Diego, CA regularly or for quarterly team get-togethers.

About You

We care about your ability to work with others and bring a positive, problem-solving attitude to your work much more than proficiency in any technology. Our ideal candidate would have:

  • Strong, positive problem solving approach and natural curiosity
  • Proven record of owning projects to completion
  • Passion for our mission and vision
  • Excellent communication and a collaborative approach
  • 4+ years of professional engineering experience in a startup or high-growth tech company
  • Familiarity with our stack (Node.js, React, MongoDB, Express, AWS) or similar
  • Strong computer science fundamentals
