Software Engineer, Django at Tilt
Colorado, US / Remote

Each year, millions of people go on leave in the United States. Due to poor work-life balance, being passed over for promotions, a lack of support from management, and mismanaged leave in general, 34% of them won't return to work. TiLT is fixing that.


Our platform enables HR and executives teams to seamlessly manage their employee leave process by streamlining compliance, adding layers of automation, and ultimately improving the entire employee experience. This means higher productivity and dollars saved for growth-stage organizations at scale. Our clients include: Robinhood, Betterment, Sift, Udemy, Tile, and more. We’ve closed an initial round of funding with Techstars and some other notable investors, but we’re just getting started!
