We’re looking for passionate people to join us on our mission to revolutionize how developers experience productivity tools.

As builders, we optimize for output. For this, we use tools that let us achieve more with less effort. A great tool sits on the sideline, waits to be used and then gets the job done. Afterwards, it gets out of the way again. Today’s workplaces are the opposite: Collaboration harms productivity, notifications scream for attention and websites are clumsy.

We aim to calm this mess by providing a simple user interface that reduces tools to their core functionality. Raycast is designed to keep their users focused. It optimizes for the shortest path from intent to action. The ephemeral app is accessible from anywhere on a Mac and fully keyboard-driven.

Many highly-rewarding productivity tools are custom to the setup of individuals or teams. To support such setups, we’re providing the toolkit for developers to automate their every-day tasks. On top, we’re establishing a community to shape an ecosystem of productivity tools.

Join our fully distributed team to change how developers control, build and share their productivity tools.

Application process

During our interview process, we want to make sure that both sides get a good understanding of what it feels to work together day-to-day. Our process contains a few steps:

  1. Send us an engaging email. Tell us why you want to join Raycast and why you generally care about the problem we’re solving. Make your first impression count. Share with us what excites you and how you envision your role at Raycast.
  2. An intro call with the founders. Both parties get to know each other. You learn more about Raycast and can ask us any question. From our side, we want to understand what motivated you to apply.
  3. Test task. We give you an assignment that is similar to tasks you would do on a daily basis as part of the team. We’ll create a shared Slack channel to communicate so you will get a sense of what it’s like to collaborate with the team.
  4. Another video call to present your task. Time to show your work in a short video call with some of us. Expect some role-specific questions to better understand how you tick.

After the last step, we get back to you with a decision. In rare cases, we might ask you for another call.
