Frontend Engineer

Build the operating system for business

Daydream is an all-in-one planning workspace where teams come together to make decisions.
The way companies make decisions today is broken. Teams are siloed. KPIs are pursued in isolation. Analysis is backwards looking. And planning is fragmented across spreadsheets, documents, and dashboards that don't speak to each other.
As a result, leaders lack the context they need, politics rules the day, and companies make expensive mistakes that result in hundreds of billions of dollars annually in waste.
Daydream offers companies a new way of working. We help teams connect the dots, cross silos, choose the best future, and make better decisions together.
Today, we're working directly with a set of tech's best known companies. In 5 years, we believe you won't run a growth-focused business without us.
Our small, high powered team is backed by 8VC, Abstract Ventures, Foundation Capital, Offline Ventures, Kevin Hartz, Lenny Rachitsky, and others.
