Founding Engineer at Orb

Founding Engineer at Orb


Orb is developer-first billing infrastructure built to help companies succeed with usage-based pricing. We handle all the complexity of turning billions of usage data points into a simple invoice, so companies don’t have to staff entire engineering teams on this. We’re going to power billing for leading API and infrastructure companies who make the building blocks of the internet.
We’re looking for a founding engineer to help us build the future of billing. Our team is thoughtful about what makes a world-class developer experience in addition to an unwavering commitment to reliability and scalability. An ideal candidate loves technical challenges, has an eye for building developer-focused workflows, and is excited to bring an opinionated view to a truly fast-growing market.

About us

Orb was co-founded by Alvaro Morales and Kshitij Grover. Previously, Alvaro led growth engineering at Asana. Kshitij led the team working on Asana’s core reactive backend system, building the infrastructure and developer platform foundations for product engineering. At Asana, Alvaro and Kshitij saw the challenges that a fast-growing company faces with monetization and billing.
Orb is backed by top-tier VC and angel investors at the forefront of usage-based pricing.
We’re based in San Francisco, and are looking to hire in the Bay Area. We believe that in-person collaboration is strategically important for a company at our stage — both for velocity and company culture.
