Engineering collaboration tools for deep tech innovation 🚀

Prewitt Ridge was founded in 2019 to solve one of the most difficult meta-problems in deep tech: engineering collaboration. We’ve created Verve, an Engineering collaboration environment that eases friction when designing, assessing, and managing complex systems. We establish an inclusive digital engineering workflow that enables streamlined integration of diverse data sets from multiple design systems and tools. In short: all engineers working off of the same page with minimal overhead, no matter what their background or area of expertise.

Prewitt Ridge is a remote-first company headquartered in Los Angeles but with teammates in Albuquerque, New York, and Austin, and is hiring throughout the United States. We offer a generous benefits and equity package, unlimited PTO 🏖, flexible scheduling, and frequent off-site engagements (COVID permitting).

Plus, you’ll be working closely with the VP of Engineering, a fellow Latina in Tech member! ✨
