August 2022

Job Description

Welcome to Intro, the best way to book world class experts and get advice over a video call.

We’re a mission driven company
We believe that access to people and knowledge can unlock human potential. Whether it’s learning how to perform an exercise from a top fitness trainer or getting business advice from a successful entrepreneur, access and information can improve your life and the lives of others. That is why our mission is to give everyone access to anyone.

The founding team
Our founder and CEO previously built an operating system that was acquired by Intuit and became the new QuickBooks Online. Our CTO previously built a marketplace that was used by millions of people and generated over $100m in GMV. We love working on BIG problems for a LOT of people and believe that Intro will be the most impactful yet.

Come build Intro with us and help us accelerate our mission to give everyone access to anyone.

Our Investors
We’re backed by Andreessen Horowitz (A16Z), Alexis Ohanian (founder of Reddit), Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Durant, and a group of world class investors.

Based in California, but work from anywhere
We’re a fully distributed team that deeply cares about producing high quality results. The founders live in LA, but you can live anywhere. We care about hiring people that are talented, believe in the mission, and are good human beings.

Why work with us?
On your first day, we’ll do a few exercises to help you identify your life goals. We’ll ask questions like “what do you imagine your life looking like if you achieved all of your goals” and “why are those goals important to you?” Once we identify those goals, they become our goals and we will work together to help make them a reality.

Next, we’ll ask you about things that matter to you in the short term. These could be things like a gym membership, meditation classes, or an allowance to attend concerts (when they come back). It’s an open ended exercise and we’ll come up with a perks package that makes you feel valued. Please note, we cannot buy you a ticket on a SpaceX rocket. It’s been asked!

Finally, here are the things you’ll definitely get: competitive salary, equity, health insurance, apple equipment, company trips and events, allowances, unlimited vacation days, unlimited sick days, recharge days, and more.

  • Deploy everything using Terraform

Who You Are:

  • 5+ years coding production software systems using multiple programming languages (especially Java and/or Kotlin)
  • 3+ years of full-time experience building database access and performance solutions
  • Experience with multiple data store technologies (relational databases, NoSQL databases, graph databases, full text search databases, distributed caches, etc.)
  • Understand the value of well-modeled data, whether structured or schemaless
  • Understand the value of well-structured software, functional and object oriented
  • Experience with cloud-native architectures and infrastructure as code
  • Experience with automated testing at all layers of a system
  • Experience with building operable software and leveraging telemetry to support and improve complex distributed systems
  • Willing to be on-call to support the software you design, build, and maintain
  • Interested in and comfortable with working on critical path components of large production systems
  • Empathetic to users of your code and services, internal and external
  • Desire to join a fast-paced startup and team!

Stories You Could Tell...

  • Joined a new engineering team and carefully considered how to integrate, add value, and eventually level up yourself and the team.
  • Assigned a set of problems and worked independently to manage the work and provide visibility to stakeholders.
  • Used telemetry to understand the behavior of a system new to you and identified opportunities to incrementally improve performance and operability.
  • Pioneered a new architecture based on real-world usage of an existing solution and worked to bring along the business and other engineers.
  • Received an alert in the middle of sleeping and had to figure out how to get a critical system online again and provided a meaningful and actionable post-mortem.

Technologies We Use:

  • A few programming languages (JavaScript, TypeScript, Python, Kotlin)

Portabl Logo
Principal Front-End Engineer
Portabl
Remote (United States)
$170,000 to $190,000 a year
June 2022

Job Description

About the role

  • Role: Principal Front End Engineer
  • Pay: $170k-$190k
  • Equity: 0.5% – 1.25%

What we’re doing

We believe that people should own their financial identity and use it with any app or service they want, whenever they need. Accessing, maintaining, and mixing-and-matching Web2 and Web3 services must be easier, more transparent, and more trustworthy.

Portabl enables consumers to simplify how their own users verify, organize, and sync identity data and documents across their whole financial lives. The goal: universal financial identity for all.

By leaning on new standards in verifiable credentials and decentralized identity we will deliver a portable identity that works for anyone. Getting this right means we can simplify and automate many parts of the identity/ KYC/ compliance stack that currently prevent the financial system from being more cost-effective, more inclusive, and more equitable.

Who we are

We’re a small team comprised of Web2 and Web3 veterans hailing from Consensys, Paypal, US Mobile, Ava Labs, and other corners of the fintech and regtech universe who share a common goal of making identity more standardized, composable, and easier to use across the financial services space.

We recognize that transforming digital identity has many challenges, which is why we value trust, curiosity, empathy, and craft. If this sounds like you, and you're excited by the idea of getting in at the ground level and building the infrastructure for the future of the financial identity, we would love to hear from you!

We’ve raised funds from top-tier early stage investors in both Web2 and Web3 including...

  • Harlem Capital
  • 6th Man Ventures
  • Bessemer Venture Partners
  • Dorm Room Fund
  • PearVC

We are 1 of only 5 companies recognized by Plaid in 2022 as part of the next generation of startups shaping the future of financial access. We are thrilled to be participating in Plaid’s 6-month Accelerate Program

What you'll do

As our lead front-end engineer, you will join a team that’s using the latest developments in decentralized identity to make financial access more transparent and more trustworthy for people using both traditional financial institutions and DeFi providers.

You will...

  • play a critical role in building cross-platform experiences on top of Portabl’s APIs, help own our product engineering, and shape the development process and roadmap.
  • create trustworthy, reliable user experiences for millions of consumers by building interfaces that are simple and easy to comprehend.
  • build, test, and ship new user-facing code with modern tools (including reusable components and frontend libraries).
  • translate designs, wireframes, and business requirements into high-quality experiences.
  • grow a best-in-class engineering group distributed largely in the US
  • collect and analyze product feedback to refine our growth and expansion
  • articulate a long term technical direction and vision for maintaining and scaling our mobile and web platforms.
  • collaborate with our founders, designers, engineers, interns, and external partners.
  • publish robust public documentation and support efforts to build a developer community

We are an early-stage startup, so we're looking for someone who is comfortable with ambiguity and has a strong desire to work both autonomously and in groups.

Remote (Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Kenya, Poland, Senegal, UK, United States)
$100,000 to $200,000 a year

Job Description

Who we are

Sendwave is on a mission to make sending funds to loved ones as easy and affordable as sending a text. What makes us stand out in a sea of similar apps? We deeply care about the diasporas and communities we serve — and that comes with a sense of connection to the markets we operate in. We strive to make life better for everyone who touches our product. That means recognizing and honoring the human experience behind sending money. We do that by remaining fee-free in most of our markets and offering round-the-clock customer care.

Our app is currently available in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and parts of Europe, and sends funds to 19 receiving countries for over 500,000 users. We currently have a 4.6-star rating on Trustpilot — people put their faith in us to deliver their money quickly, securely, and affordably. And we’re pretty darn proud of that.

How we work

What we’re most proud of though is our brilliant, creative, and tenacious team. Our remote-first workplace means you’ll be working with Sendwavers in Europe, Africa, South America, and the U.S. that all share a core set of Sendwave values. What exactly are those values? Glad you asked.

  1. Prioritize fearlessly.
    There will always be more problems to solve and opportunities to pursue than we have the capacity for. We’re not afraid to say no and are willing to let fires burn, knowing that to win we must discern and execute decisively on the vital few rather than the important many.
  2. Take full ownership of the outcomes we’re responsible for.
    Our job is not to do what we can to solve a problem. It's to ensure that problem is solved. If an attempt to solve a problem doesn't work, we seek an alternative. If we need help, we request it, and, if necessary, demand it.
  3. Forge a diverse team and inclusive culture.
    We believe the challenges we’re addressing will be best met by a truly global, diverse team, working together. We’re not naive to the systemic bias and discrimination that make this easier said than done, so we check our egos, listen deeply, and measure progress towards making this a fundamental part of our success.
  4. Maximize our rate of learning.
    We view projects as ever-evolving drafts and welcome opportunities to discover that what we had in mind won't work so we can move to an even better end state. Most importantly, we do this fast. The faster we run these loops — as a company and individuals — the faster we’ll achieve our mission.
  5. Embrace embarrassing honesty from ourselves and others.
    We function best when we're open and honest with one another — especially about our challenges and doubts. We lean into uncomfortable conversations and support our colleagues when they do the same.
  6. Maximize energy, not time spent.
    We measure our own and others’ contributions by objectives reached, not time spent. Living a full life outside of work is necessary for high achievement over the long term.

Good to note: We are able to hire in Belgium, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Kenya, Poland, Senegal, UK, and US.

Your key area of focus:

To achieve our mission, we need to make sure our app is easy to use for every interaction from signup to sending to editing info to resetting your password. You’ll work closely with our Head of Product to fix highly impactful user problems and A/B test interface changes to make the experience even smoother and quicker. You’ll eventually be one of the primary code owners of our Android app, and the go-to people for when someone else on the team has a hairy Android problem they need help with, but it won’t be all Android work though— you will need to work across client and server to solve problems end-to-end.

In your first few months, you'll

  • Streamline in-app signup and verification flows
  • Set up A/B tests to measure the impact of your work
  • Help us build a top-tier referral program to help users share their love of Sendwave with their friends
  • Advise other engineers on Android development questions and challenges

What you bring to the table:

  • 4+ years of professional experience as a full-stack or mobile engineer (but at least 3+ years exclusively in mobile)
  • Significant experience working with Android — you don’t need to know every detail of the Android environment off the top of your head, but you should have a strong enough foundation to figure out those details when needed
  • Work authorization in the country in which you intend to be based.

Bonus points if you

  • Have worked on a growth team before
  • Possess hands-on experience with Python or iOS
  • Care about users and want to make their experience easier and better
  • Are more of a “get it done” type person than a perfectionist
  • Aren’t afraid to throw away code you wrote when after testing, a flow you built doesn’t work as well as another one
  • Can easily communicate with non-technical folks and translate their feedback into code.
  • Are comfortable defaulting to over-communication and overreaching when it comes to coordination.
  • Adjust quickly to changing priorities and conditions and cope effectively with complexity and change.

Let's talk about the benefits. Here are a few perks you can look forward to:

  • This is a permanent position
  • Major benefits:
    • Subsidized health insurance and retirement contribution matching (both vary from country-to-country)
    • 26 weeks fully paid parental leave and subsidized fertility assistance
    • Unlimited vacation with a 20-day minimum requirement
    • $10,000 annual charitable donation matching

And best of all:

  • Our team of over 400 employees, fully distributed across the world. We are working from coffee shops, homes, and coworking spaces — making us one of the larger fully distributed growth-stage startups in the world.
  • Proud parents, community organizers, farmers, play in bands, teach yoga, YouTube influencers, former Olympians, and serial entrepreneurs.
  • We collectively speak over twenty languages, including Akuapem, Amharic, Bengali, Ewe, Fante, Ga, Igbo, Kalenjin, Luganda, Oromo, Somali, Swahili, Wolof, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish.
  • Our new collaborators at WorldRemit, another remittance company. We recently joined forces, and we’re excited about the ways we can continue to provide the best service to our users.

Ready to apply?

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. If interested, please submit your resume along with a cover letter highlighting why your experience demonstrates you meet the requirements of the role. Please also indicate the countries in which you have work authorization.

Confidence can sometimes hold us back from applying for a job. But we'll let you in on a secret: there's no such thing as a 'perfect' candidate. Sendwave is a place where everyone can thrive. So however you identify and whatever background you bring with you, please apply if this is a role that would make you excited to wake up every day.
