Convex is a rapidly growing startup aiming to change the way the web is built. Specifically, we're creating a Global State Management platform--a new way to build apps without backends, databases, VPCs, kubernetes, etc. Featured recently here: [https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrickcai/2022/04/27/convex-se...](https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrickcai/2022/04/27/convex-series-a-26-million-developers-dump-databases/?sh=53a64d84bf86) More background on the vision: <https://a16z.com/2022/04/27/investing-in-convex/> <https://blog.convex.dev/unfulfilled-functional-ideals/> We're looking for people passionate about developer platforms, web development, mobile development, distributed systems and databases--all the pieces necessary to create a holistic replacement for the backends of years past. Our stack is TypeScript + Rust. The Convex team has been building critical systems in Rust for nearly 10 years: [https://www.wired.com/2016/03/epic-story-dropboxs-exodus-ama...](https://www.wired.com/2016/03/epic-story-dropboxs-exodus-amazon-cloud-empire/) [https://dropbox.tech/infrastructure/rewriting-the-heart-of-o...](https://dropbox.tech/infrastructure/rewriting-the-heart-of-our-sync-engine) ...so if you're passionate about learning in depth how to take Rust into production, join up! Feel free to either reply to me or apply directly on <https://convex.dev/jobs> Or, if you just want a beta key to learn more about what Convex is first, let me know. I'll hand those out too.
