      About Us

      At Close, we're building the sales communication platform of the future. With our roots as the very first sales CRM to include built-in calling, we're leading the industry toward eliminating manual processes and helping companies to close more deals (faster). Since our founding in 2013, we've grown to become a profitable, 100% globally distributed team of 43 high-performing, happy people that are dedicated to building a product our customers love.

      Our backend tech stack currently consists of Python Flask/Gunicorn web apps with our TaskTiger scheduler handling many of the backend asynchronous task processing.

      5 days ago

      At Bevy Labs we have deep experience building community from the ground up. We are building the best products to help companies manage and scale their user groups and event communities all over the world. We are a distributed company and strive to be as diverse as the people using our products.

      Bevy Labs Engineering

      On the engineering team you are at the heart of the action, contributing to products that are actively used by world-class communities to create connections and experiences for their people.

      We care about solving challenging problems to build products that make a real difference in the lives of our customers and their users. We also care about the craft of software engineering and how we can always become better at what we do, individually as well as collectively.

      This means continuous integration, lots of automated test coverage, thorough reviews, good thinking and lots of experiments to discover new ways of improvement.

      We are still small and nimble, but we are excited to grow.

      This position

      Over time an area of specialization may emerge, but for the foreseeable future this is a position that will likely get in touch with many different areas of the product.

      You

      You will fit in well with us, if you:

      • Reside in North or South America. Yes, we are a distributed company, but since we are still small, we like to minimize the time zone spread within the team.

      • Are an excellent communicator. In our small team, English is the official language. You need to be able to articulate complex ideas efficiently and effectively. When people do not share an office, it is essential to pay extra attention to communication.

      • Have a solid technical background. You should have at least 5 years of professional software development experience and be able to point to a track record of caring about software engineering practices.

      • Feel at home with Python/Django, JavaScript/React.js and the shell command line. You have been working in current cloud-based environments (such as AWS or GCP), but you don’t feel tied one platform and generally appreciate picking the “right tool for the job.”

      • Like to learn and strive to do so often. As a company we improve to the extent that our team does. It starts with each individual. Humility and an open mind help a lot.

      • Ideally know what it is like to work in distributed development teams, or better yet, thrive in them. It probably means you already know you don’t need a structured office environment with a manager who checks in on you once a day. Likewise, you know that you will do best from your home office.

      We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and the communities we serve.

      Principals only please.

    • Our mission

      The problem: In 2017, nearly 60% of adults in sub-Saharan Africa had no bank account. That's for good reason—the fees are too high, the closest branch can be miles away, and nobody takes cards. Without access to financial institutions, people are forced to keep their savings under the mattress. Small business owners rely on lenders who charge extortionate rates. Parents spend hours waiting in line to pay school fees in cash.

      How we're solving it: We're building financial services to work as they should: no account fees, instantly available and accepted everywhere. In places where electricity, water and roads don't always function, we're creating financial infrastructure that "just works." In fall 2017, we launched a mobile app in Senegal for cash deposit, withdrawal, and peer-to-peer and business payments; we're now processing over 200k payments every month. Our goal is to make Africa the first cashless continent, starting with Senegal. That's where you come in...

      How you'll help us achieve it

      We’re looking for an experienced engineer who’s independent, excited about getting things done and ready to hit the ground running. You'll be responsible for building and improving the ways people pay with Wave. You'll own every step of the process—from understanding the problem, to shipping your solution for users, to helping the customer support team resolve problems. 

      Our to-do list changes constantly, but here are some recent projects:

      • Allowing people to pay their electricity bills with Wave, by integrating with Senelec, the national electrical utility.

      • Building an app for business owners to pay their employees' salaries using Wave.

      • Letting us safely lend smartphones to thousands of taxi drivers so they can accept payments with Wave, by building software to manage the phones and discourage theft.

      Key Details

      • You can work remotely from anywhere (between UTC -8 and +4) with reliable Internet access

      • Our team meets in Senegal every two months for retreats, which are one week in length. Wave covers all costs associated with travel to and from Senegal.

      • Salaries are calculated using a transparent formula. Salary for this role ranges between $120,000 to $155,000.

      Major benefits:

      • Subsidized health insurance for you and your dependents and retirement contributions (both vary from country-to-country)

      • 6 months fully paid parental leave and subsidized fertility assistance

      • Unlimited vacation with a 20-day minimum requirement

      • $10,000 annual charitable donation matching

      • Are excited to deeply understand the inner workings of the tools you use.

      • Push through hard problems without giving up.

      • Are not afraid to take on complicated systems.

      • Reflexively ask yourself, “how will this code change affect my users?”

      • Can communicate clearly with colleagues who work, speak and think differently.

      • Work to make things easier for the next engineer who will touch your code.

      • Always try to improve as a programmer and colleague.

      Our team

      We're a team of ~130 people (90 Senegalese and 40 International) who are deeply passionate about our mission of bringing great financial services to the people who need them most.

      We foster autonomy for engineers. We have no project managers—you'll learn to own your own projects at every stage, from understanding the project to monitoring your solution in production.

      We prize focus: we try to cut out all non-essential distractions so that you can spend as much time in the zone as possible. Aside from two weekly meetings—an all-hands and a one-on-one with your manager—your schedule is yours.

      We care deeply about code quality. We do thorough design and code reviews, and frequently budget time for internal code improvement projects.

      Our stack (note that we will train you on all of these—you don't need any prior experience): We have a Python 3 (+ mypy) backend, GraphQL API and Android (Kotlin) frontend, backed by a Postgres database. Our infrastructure is on GCP, managed with Kubernetes and Terraform. Learn more about engineering at Wave: https://wave.engineering/

      What follows is a bit lengthy, but will give you a better idea of what we do, what we value and how we work.

      what we do

      You know those websites that make it impossible to add an item to your cart, sign up for a newsletter or enter your credit card information? Sooo frustrating, right?! Instead of buying the pants or entering your email, you throw up your hands, mutter a curse word or two and immediately head over to YouTube to watch cat videos.

      At surefoot, we make life easier for web surfers and shoppers like you.

      We ease user frustrations, improve conversions and craft data stories that help our clients make sound, data-informed business decisions.

      How, you ask?

      In short, we formulate hypotheses based on data from sources like Google Analytics, HotJar and customer service data, which allow us to identify the biggest friction points on our clients’ sites. Then, we validate or invalidate our hypotheses in the form of A/B tests, whose results we (you) analyze to determine the optimal site experience.

      data analyst role and requirements

      As a data analyst at surefoot, your human interaction will mostly consist of conversations with our strategic directors and clients. However, your primary interactions will be with our clients’ datasets. We’ll look to you to analyze the results of our clients’ tests and distill that hard data into digestible “data stories” that can be universally understood by everyone from the intern to the CEO.

      In other words, some of your time will be spent crunching numbers while the other portion will be spent translating those numbers to English, helping “non-numbers speaking people” understand what the data means.

      If you’re still with us, here are the requirements:

      must-haves

      • 4-5+ years of professional experience in data analysis and statistics

      • 3+ years of deep experience with Google Analytics

      • preferably GAIQ certified

      • working knowledge of statistical frameworks and concepts pertinent to A/B testing, including Frequentist and Bayesian statistics, p-values, confidence intervals, minimum detectable effect, etc.

      • top notch communicator with good writing skills, grammar and grasp of the English language

      • demonstrated expertise communicating results and actionable insights from in-depth analysis to decision makers

      • experience developing Keynote or Google Slides presentations with a strategic focus

      • exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail (e.g., if you found an error in this job description, it is still bugging you)

      • self-motivation, ability to work independently and remotely

      • strong desire to continuously learn and grow

      • craves feedback and accepts it with gratitude

      • high emotional intelligence

      • hobbies outside of work

      nice-to-haves

      • experience with A/B testing or personalization

      • experience writing SQL, wrangling spreadsheet data, and analyzing data using R or Python

      • experience with tools like Optimizely, Dynamic Yield, VWO, HotJar, Mixpanel

      • interest in the outdoors or staying active (many of our clients fall into the outdoors and active lifestyle industry)

      • funny GIF library, good emoji usage, sense of humor

      nitty gritty details

      • Base salary: $90,000 to $110,000 (depending on experience) + benefits (health, paid vacation and holidays, self care bonuses, all-hands trips, fully remote team)

      • The position is open to U.S. (W2) and Canadian-based (independent contractor) applicants only. No Visa sponsorship is provided.

      our values and culture

      Our values are extremely important to us and we stake the company on them. This means that even the Grand Poobah of analysts won’t be considered if our values don’t align.

      be nice and do the right thing. We firmly believe that this world could use a bit more kindness so we strive to infuse it throughout our interactions – with clients, each other, our communities and all those we meet. Doing the right thing means we refuse to waiver on doing what is best for our business or our clients, even if it means less upside for us.

      own your mistakes, learn from them and move on. Our preferred path is to “fail fast”. In other words, identify your mistakes, take ownership, discuss what you learned, identify solutions for ways to correct them so they don’t happen again and move on.

      dedication to your craft and our clients. While we do track how many hours are spent working on each client, we value output over hours. As long as you’re a US citizen, we don’t much care where you work from. However, we do care a whole damn lot that your work is done with efficiency, precision and pride.

      channel your inner entrepreneur and make it easy for people to say “yes”. If a process isn’t working or hindering you in some way, don’t wait to be asked to fix it. Instead, like Nike says, Just Do It™. Make it work for you. Experiment. You’re a smart, capable person so don’t ask permission. Arrive with a well-thought-out solution that makes it easy for everyone to say “yes” to, you smarty, you.

      ready to apply?

      Since we are a remote team, we have a somewhat atypical interview process. For the first step of the interview phase, we ask applicants to show basic competency in the necessary skill sets.

      If all is well there, you’ll move on to phase two which involves a Zoom video call to get to know one another a bit better. If we’re feeling good about that, we’ll contact your references.

      And finally, if your references check out and confirm you’re not a stabber, we’ll ask you to do some actual paid work with us to determine fit for both parties.

      To apply, compose an email to [email protected] and [email protected] with the following:

      1. your responses to these 3 short exercises: https://sf.surefoot.me/qlknJs

      2. any relevant experience you have with a/b testing, data analysis, user research, etc.

      3. contact info for 3-4 references (will only be contacted if you move through phase 1)

      All applicants will receive a response. surefoot is an equal opportunity employer and we are committed to building a company that embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

      You have a proven track record of reading data and making solid conclusions. You know both the art and science of analytics - not only do you know how to find answers in the data, you also know which questions should be asked in the first place and what data can help us further bolster our conclusions. You love engaging with customers, learning about their challenges and then diving into the data to see how to solve them!

      Signs of a great candidate

      • Collaborative. You know that your colleagues’ perspectives will make our customers successful. Similarly, you use your strengths to help us grow together. You propose ways for us to be more engaged and successful with our customers.

      • Customer focused. Our customers are at the forefront of your day.  You prioritize our customers’ voice to ensure their needs are met.
