You will be working on any number of exciting projects from building industry leading (and App-Store featured) native mobile applications to building high performance, scalable backends for getting freelancers new clients, locking in recurring income, getting payments processed fast, growing their business. You are also helping to shape the next generation of business productivity and consumer convenience tools for the Fortune 10M (in the U.S.) and 750M globally.

    What will you be doing?

    • Develop our mobile applications [Objective C, Android]

    • Develop our payments, messaging and scheduling stack

    • Develop our machine learning stack for payments and scheduling

    • Develop & roll out unit test coverage in both mobile & backend stacks

    Who we are?

    1) Engineers and product obsessed - we loathe over-engineering, we cringe anytime a customer reports a bug and we release new versions every 3 weeks.

    2) We love our customers - solving their problems and helping them grow and succeed in a rapidly changing market. Oh yeah we also love their 5 star reviews.

    3) We love disrupting the status quo - desktop solutions are so last year and we believe everyone globally in the industries we're going after will be using a mobile app as their primary business tool by 2025.

    4) We believe only three things matter as we build out our business: building a great product, delivering awesome customer service and a killer instinct for communicating what we do to the market.
