About the company

Reviewshake is building the home for all online reviews - be it local business reviews, products, mobile apps, music, movie, podcasts and more.

Our main platform is a SaaS product that provides a management layer for businesses to manage reviews on 80+ review sites, including Facebook, Google, Yelp and Trustpilot. As a technology company, we also commercialize the tech that powers our company through several APIs in our Supervisor product.


We're an established business with hundreds of paying customers and a team of 10, and are searching for a full-time backend developer that can help maintain our existing code base and expand our feature set. Being bootstrapped (not venture-backed) and fully remote, we don’t strive for growth at all costs, and are building a company that we can be proud of, and enjoy working for.
