We are recruiting a founding engineer to help thousands [and growing] of small businesses run their business in a new, mobile optimized way. 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.

  • Build internal tools for code deployment, customer on-boarding / retention

Are there any requirements?

  • Bachelors degree in Computer Science [or equivalent]

  • Expertise in at least 3 of the following: Objective C [iOS], Android, Python, SQL, Machine learning

  • No one (reasonable) you know would describe you as an asshole.

  • Every engineer you've worked with would rank you in their top 5

  • You should be able to ace our basic technical interview [no puzzles, no tricks]

  • You sleep in between release cycle

  • Your not into shining new things and Tech Crunch headlines

  • You are all about building systems that create real value for real people - over the long term

  • The details matter to you [premature optimizations, pixel level precision] and you take lots of pride in your work.

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.
