Want to create a more positive world with your coding career?

This FinTech startup is helping people channel their savings into causes that matter to them. Users can invest in green energy and companies supporting refugees, divest from fossil fuels or gun violence, and many other options. A few quick clicks and they’ll create a custom financial portfolio that performs as well as any on the stock market, but you create the change you want to see in the world as a byproduct.

You’ll be deep in the code on both the front end and the back end. You'll communicate with other teammates, work proactively to code outside your comfort zone, and impact the next iteration of this startup's product.

Top reasons this role accelerates your career:
  1. Constant challenge. They want you to want to take on challenges you've never seen before in code.
  2. A lot of really smart people believe in this team. The company was founded by folks from big names in the finance world. They’re a Y-Combinator alumni. Advisors include leaders from Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Pinterest, and Google.
  3. Learn social entrepreneurship. This Public Benefit Corporation is succeeding -- And with a company that’s totally transparent, you’ll learn how they’re doing it.
The team:
This diverse team of 9 is made up of experts from investing and data, without any of the bro-y attitudes you tend to find in the Finance world.

These are people who truly care about making a difference, both in the world and for each other. While they get things done, they also aren’t a team of putting one's head down and pounding out code nonstop. They interact, they talk and they listen. If someone has an idea for improving team culture (e.g. adding gender pronouns on Slack profiles), they try it. Many members of the team are involved in activism or non-profit work.

Balance is respected. There’s no competition for who worked the most hours this week. They’re naturally excited about their product (because it’s a great cause!) but no one is going to burn themselves out. It’s assumed that if someone emails you at 8:00 PM at night, a response can wait until morning.

Management is an Agile-ish approach but they’re not strict about it. Priorities change a lot, and they’re ok with putting things on the backburner to refocus.

The Perks:
  • Full medical, dental and vision insurance.
  • Free breakfast food for prep, free lunch, and free dinners if you stay late!
  • All commuting costs are covered.
  • Bring your dog to work.
You might be their team’s missing puzzle piece if:
  • You’ve been in a full-stack role 1+ year.
  • You love feedback. You provide constructive feedback and actively listen when others have feedback for you.
  • You have a passion for social causes, and you believe in this startup’s mission. Maybe you’re already toying with the idea of investing your own savings through their platform.
  • You can commute to San Francisco's Union Square area or are able to relocate. Unfortunately remote is not an option here.
Bonus Points :
  • Familiarity with Python.
  • Familiarity with Express.JS, Node.JS, React.JS, jQuery or ES6.
  • Familiarity with AWS Aurora, AWS Elastic Beanstalk or AWS Lambda.
  • You’ve previously worked in startups.
  • You’ve previously worked in the finance sector.
  • You have experience being on call in case something happens (which it will).
