About Mystery

Today, if someone wants to find something to do, they spend several hours searching through Facebook, Eventbrite, Yelp, Groupon, local newspapers, or Googling to find an experience that suits them. After fruitless searching, they inevitably end up at the same restaurant, bar, or movie theatre they were last week.

Mystery is a managed marketplace that connects people to experiences in a new way. Mystery uses human-in-the-loop matching to create a curated outing based on each customer’s unique preferences and price point. Aside from the necessary basic information, Mystery provides limited details on the itinerary—all in an effort to consistently surprise and delight their customers. Throughout the Mystery, customers are guided by Casey, their technology-powered concierge. By owning the end-to-end experience, Mystery removes all planning, indecision, and fear of failure that's commonly associated with planning an experience.

As a seed-stage company, our employees are presented with tremendous opportunities for both personal and professional growth. Our team is deliberately small—we're tech-first and we choose to scale our service by leveraging thoughtful automation instead of increasing our head count.

What you'll do

As a full stack engineer, you'll help develop our core product(s) across front-end, back-end, and mobile platforms. You'll be part of a small team of engineers and have massive amounts of ownership and surface area.

Who you are

  • 2+ years experience as an engineer working on back-end and front-end systems.
  • Familiar with our stack. Experienced with all (or most) of the following languages/frameworks:
    • TypeScript / JavaScript
    • React / React Native
    • GraphQL
    • Node
  • Product-oriented and able to conceptualize/empathize with our users' needs.
  • Driven. Doesn't require too much direction (i.e. from a PM). Able to work well both independently and as part of a team.
  • Problem solver. You enjoy working on problems that are challenging and lack a clear-cut solution.

Benefits and Perks

  • More equity than you're probably used to (perks of a small team)
  • Unlimited vacation
  • Employer paid health, vision, and dental insurance
  • Flexible work hours

Mystery is an equal-opportunity employer and is actively dedicated to building a diverse team.
