Company Description

The Five to Nine platform is shaking up the future of work by helping companies scale their event programs programs through data.

We're looking for a Backend Rails Engineer who's passionate about transforming workplace programs and fostering joy with our users. You’ll be helping our customers get recognized for their meaningful impact in workplace culture as program managers.

In just three years, we've: raised from top VCs such as Kapor Capital and Morgan Stanley, we've increased our user base by over 90%, and have been featured in Vice, Business Insider, and more. Our B2B SaaS platform is helping customers like MasterClass, Upwork, and Yahoo to manage and evaluate their company events and programs.

We're changing the way company programs are run — from Hispanic Heritage Month to team socials — by passing the mic back to employees to voice their feedback and giving ERG leaders and HR managers visibility into their cultural initiatives. The employee engagement space is huge and especially relevant right now - a $74B market growing 12% year over year. While companies are spending a ton on scaling their employee engagement programs, less than 10% are actually measuring the ROI of their efforts.

That's where Five to Nine comes in. Our vision is to be a one-stop shop for workplace leaders to design impactful programs, connect with a community of program leaders, and access resources to create a radically transparent culture that develops, connects, and upskills teams to be the best in show workplace.
