The Role

We are looking for a Software Engineer to join our small but growing engineering team to define, build and iterate on features for our consumer-facing product! You will work closely with Product, Operations, Customer Support, Growth and other functions to design and build a reliable, intuitive, and simple experience for our users. As an early member of the team, we hope you will also have a lot of impact on our team culture, processes and norms.

Our client is a cross-platform mobile app developed with React Native and TypeScript, which talks to a backend service written in Kotlin and backed by a PostgreSQL database, all of which runs on AWS and is managed via Terraform and Ansible. This is a full-stack role, and you will have plenty of opportunities to work on all parts of our tech stack. We’re an encouraging environment that values both teamwork and autonomy, and have many exciting upcoming challenges, including scaling up to handle increased volume and complexity, improving UI and UX to drive growth and retention, building internal tools for our customer support and acquisition efforts, and much more!

  • Committed to using your engineering skills for social good


  • 3+ years of full-time software development experience, or equivalent
  • Proficiency with React or React Native, and a typed backend language like Java or Kotlin
  • Experience owning user-facing features end-to-end, from conception to launch
  • Experience developing software in a collaborative, multi-functional, and fast-paced environment

Nice to have but not required:

  • Experience with TypeScript
  • Experience working on a multi-platform mobile app with a significant volume of traffic
  • Experience creating design mocks or other kinds of UX work
  • Experience working on systems that have real-world performance and reliability constraints
