Posted on Thursday, June 1, 2023


We’re seeking a skilled and diligent full-time Software Engineer to join our growing team. You will work as part of the engineering team to:

  • Develop the Tailscale product, contributing to client code and related services.

  • Bring a special focus on front-end engineering both for web properties and for client applications running on user devices. Expertise with multiple front-end ecosystems (listed below) is a strong plus, but if you primarily specialize in only one of these we’d still encourage you to apply.

Because we’re an early-stage and fully remote company, we’re looking for a strongly motivated individual who can help move the product forward. The ability to think on your feet, collaborate with highly technical teams, and comfort working asynchronously are essential.

Qualifications and Skills:

  • Web front-end development in React and Typescript, with a strong grasp of HTML/CSS fundamentals

  • Experience with one or more applications front-end ecosystems

    • Windows using Win32

    • macOS and iOS using Swift

    • Android using Java or Kotlin

  • Working with UX Researchers, Product Managers, and Designers to define the user experience.


  • Ability to give and process constructive feedback, as well as work independently

  • Flexibility to adjust to the dynamic nature of a startup

  • Most of the non-front-end portions of the system are developed in the Go programming language. Experience with Go is a plus.

With the team, you’ll succeed with these sorts of goals

  • Work as part of a team of engineers and designers to add features in the Tailscale service

  • Take a holistic view of the product, from customer needs to client applications to the admin console

What We Offer

  • An inclusive, remote-first work environment where you can be your authentic self. We recognize the impact diverse voices and backgrounds have on the growth of our people, our product and our company.

  • A competitive total compensation package. This includes base salary, equity incentive plan and 401K contributions.

  • Comprehensive group benefits with no waiting period. Take advantage of coverage for health, vision, dental, and more for you and your family, plus access to health and flexible spending accounts!

  • Flexible work hours and the opportunity to work from anywhere—enjoy a change of scenery wherever you can get wifi and join twice annual retreats with fellow Tailscalars!

  • Support for your personal and professional development. Grow your career thoughtfully with $1500 USD annually for professional development, leverage our conference budget to learn from experts in your field or take advantage of mentorship, coaching and internal promotion opportunities.

  • Paid time off and a healthy work-life balance. Take advantage of 4 weeks vacation each year, uncapped sick time when you need it, and support for any situation life throws your way!

  • A build-your-own home office setup. You choose your own company-owned laptop (MAC or PC), receive a monthly home internet reimbursement and $1000 USD to customize your workstation to make it your own.

  • Generous parental leave program from your first day. We care about your life outside of work, and encourage new parents to take advantage of parental leave top-ups for up to 26 weeks.
