Software Engineer

Brooklyn, NY Full-time

We're looking for an experienced and confident software developer to join us as a core member of the engineering team. You will be integral in building products that affect the daily lives of tens of thousands of users across a range of industries in new and exciting ways.

This is a rather rare opportunity, as we are relatively far along as a company, but are still a really small team. Think very low bureaucracy, very high influence (over code, but also product and strategy as well), fast deploy and feedback cycles, and lots of cross-company collaboration.

We are hiring for Full-Stack, Back-End, and Front-End engineers!
