Rust Job Details

Matter is a Build as a Service (BaaS) agency that empowers businesses to build better technology. We specialize in custom software development and team building to help our clients engineer transformative results across their organization. We're a geo-diverse and dynamic team with deep backgrounds across product, engineering, and design and we are always looking for exceptional talent.

We are a remote-first team who believes in the intentional building of our team, processes and culture. If you are someone who thinks beyond just an engineering perspective and raises product concerns as you see them, takes pride of ownership in your work and is interested in learning, picking up new languages and personal growth, then Matter could be a great fit for you.

Matter's software engineers work across multiple industries with companies of all shapes and sizes — from pre-Series A to S&P 500 organizations.
