Job type: Full-time

Salary: $40-50k

Category: Software Dev

Our offer

  • Challenges brought on by building in an exciting, fast-moving space. We are at the forefront of the changing recruitment and finance industries while working in a software-company environment that values openness and merit. 
  • An engaging workplace to grow and push yourself. Our founders are ex-Googlers, well-connected in the tech blockchain spaces and the team has very complementary skill sets. We help each other grow and continually push each other to do better. 
  • $$$: Competitive compensation package (driven by significant equity component).  


  • We expect you to play an active role in key processes. Collaborate closely with our team and network to define the product specs and scale the team to build it.
  • Drive the design, implementation, testing & maintenance of the front-ends that our clients use to interact with the PrimeFlow infrastructure.
  • Collaborate with CTO to set the technical direction of our product (services & frameworks we use, system architecture, blockchain integration).
  • Complement CTO's focus (backend, protocols, game theory, ...) by owning the app layer (UX/UI, front-ends/apps, critical journeys, user success).
  • Key: Help mentor, manage and grow the engineering team.

Minimal Qualifications

Engineering best practices:

  • Data-driven project structure: Propose a design with due diligence & competing options explained, work out a timeline, delegate what makes sense and execute by taking ownership (process adopted from Google by our CTO).
  • Track record of producing standard-driven, high-quality code that stands up to peer reviews and/or is respected within the open-source community.
  • Highly security-conscious. You must follow best practices and always watch out for attack vectors (e.g. XSS and SQLi).
  • Aggressive process automation: TDD, invest into CI/CD, seamless project tracking - to free the team up to think & build.
  • Learning by building mentality (rapid prototyping, user feedback, technical feasibility). 

Front-end development expertise:

  • Experience using Javascript FE frameworks: React, Angular, etc.
  • Experience in developing large client side JavaScript applications.
  • Track record of building UIs that remove friction from what is otherwise a complex process (ownership, definition, & success tracking of the user journeys, etc).
  • Command of minimalistic to-the-point design.

Soft skills:

  • Track record of product leadership - you have identified opportunities, defined solutions, and worked with the prospective users to refine, prototype and then build and iterate on a product.
  • Good verbal and written communication skills in English.
  • Able to align multiple strategies and ideas.
  • Confident in producing and presenting work.
  • Fast learner and hungry to build something big.

Preferred Qualifications

Back-end development familiarity:

  • You have worked with AWS or GCP before and have a strong command of the concepts (service architecture defined through checked-in configs, stateless jobs, integrate auxiliary services instead of running them ourselves etc).
  • Experience with TypeScript/Node, PostgreSQL and the relevant libraries.

Other relevant skills:  

  • Experience with building a platform/marketplace (cold start, growth strategies, incentive systems, open-source dev community utilization/evangelization).
  • Knowledge in systems architecture (especially distributed systems), game theory, mechanism design, auctions.
  • Interest in the emerging blockchain space, Web 3.0 development experience (Solidity, DApps, Geth/Parity, Truffle, Web3.js, Infura).
