Senior software engineer opportunity at crowdfunding platform (NYC)
 New York, NY
Our client has built out a tech-driven trading/crowdfunding platform for an historically closed market -- and due to their work this market has been opened up to the open market.

The need to bring on a very senior engineer to shape the team, roadmap, and technical strategy. They have a good stack (React + Redux, Python, Django, PostgreSQL) but they're decidedly dogmatic about your background - any JVM language will do, and better if you've mastered a number of languages during your career.

Some of the things you'll do:

  • Mentor more junior engineers

  • Build high-availability and security into the core architecture

  • Help scale the marketplace

  • Design and implement the systems to power seamless funding and cash distribution

  • Build data-centric services

A little about you:

  • 5+ years of experience working on the server side in any language (Python, Ruby, PHP, JavaScript, Java, etc...)

  • Experience building interactive web applications using modern Javascript frameworks (Angular.js, React.js, Ember.js, etc…)

  • Strong understanding of OOP and Computer Science fundamentals, including algorithms and data structures

  • A strong passion for engineering and a sense of ownership of your code and outcomes

  • Experience with test automation, continuous integration and deployment

  • Experience with Agile software development methods

  • Great written and verbal communication skills, comfortable discussing technical problems with peers

  • Self-starter, thriving in a startup environment
