  • Building Cool Stuff: Our Senior Software Engineer will collaborate with Product Managers, UX Designers, and other engineers to develop new features for both our consumer-facing and client-facing web apps.
  • Writing Thoughtful Code: Writing clean, maintainable, and well-tested code should be second nature to our team, ensuring platform stability now and more easily expanding the product in the future.
  • Sharing Expertise: Our Senior Software Engineer should feel comfortable discussing technical decisions with fellow team members, performing code reviews, and providing mentorship for junior developers.
  • Looking for Improvements: Our team is always on the lookout for improvements, such as possible performance gains or better coding style, and are comfortable suggesting them.

Bottom line – in this role it is your responsibility to bring an innovative product vision to life, while balancing speed and maintainability as our platform continues to grow.

What’s In It For You:

  • We offer a competitive salary and equity opportunity for strong performers.
  • Flexibility and freedom are high. We work from home often. We care about results above all else.
  • We’re early enough that you can make significant contributions to the company’s success, but have enough in place already that you won’t have to create everything from scratch.
  • We work with extreme agility and fluidity, and need your help improving that velocity as we scale up smartly. You can have a major impact on how our processes take shape to achieve our goals.
  • You will work with and learn from a team that is experienced in developing products that have been utilized by millions of users and tens of thousands of clients on a monthly basis
  • Your visibility will be high, with daily opportunity to share wins and learnings with the entire company.
  • To find great ideas you have to break some stuff. Here you are expected to fail fast, fail smartly and fail forward. You’ll have tremendous leeway in trying out your ideas, no matter how speculative.
  • We have a great culture and environment that emphasizes collaboration, energy and openness above corporate formality. You can be yourself.
