Director of Engineering

The Juice

Fulltime

Remote Friendly

The Juice is reinventing the B2B Content Marketing landscape, putting content consumers front and center. 

The Juice collects, consolidates, and curates insightful resources from across the internet into a single platform where members can organize, share, and enjoy content curated for them without ever having to fill out a form. 

While much of the best educational content for professionals is produced by brands, the experience of consuming this content has traditionally been terrible, with gated content forms followed by the inevitable pummeling of unwanted sales pitches. The Juice puts content consumers in control of how and when they engage with brands while augmenting the impact and audience for brands that produce quality content.
