How our society supports grievers must change, and our technology team is investing heavily into making it a reality. Technology is the backbone of Mi Alma. It touches everything from our sales team, to customer support, and every element of our customers' and users' experience.

We are building a team of talented, impact-minded problem solvers to reshape how grievers receive support when a loved one passes.

The primary focus of our Software Engineers is to refine our core product, which consists of:

  • User Onboarding
  • Page Creation
  • Page Purchasing
  • Support Registry
  • Memory & image contribution
  • Communication between grievers and supports

We ship code daily and there are opportunities to make meaningful contributes at each level of the tech stack. You'll be onboard early enough to take your pick of interesting challenges, yet arriving just in time for a live product with daily users.
