Why join us?

  • We are currently a team of 3 founding team members plus a team of contractors and advisors. You would be our back-end rockstar, completely owning development of our API, architecture decisions, managing remote contractors, and future hires. This is your chance to get in on the ground floor with a competitive salary and VERY significant equity!

  • We have a rock-solid, beautiful, working product with real, engaged, paying customers. This isn't vaporware!

  • We are operating in a $437B industry with next to zero market penetration.

  • We are seed-stage and well funded by top-tier investors. Round closed in 2017 not publicly announced.

Engineering at Headnote

Engineering team and processes

We operate in 1 week sprints. We have a meeting on Thursday afternoons to plan out and prioritize stories for the next week and evaluate any work rolls over from the current week. We use CI to run unit tests, integration tests, and front-end tests. We deploy daily. We do code reviews using Github and lint our code using CodeClimate.

Technical Challenges

Major errors and mistakes are not acceptable when dealing with large amounts of other people's money. We are required to design a robust, stable, and compliant platform. Thorough automated and manual testing is paramount to our process, and shipping fixes in a matter of minutes or hours instead of days is important to our commitment to our customers.

Projects you might work on
  • You would take your time to get intimately familiar with our codebase and business logic by doing small projects and tasks.

  • You would design a job queue and migrate our cron jobs to this new service.

  • You would spearhead and manage our project to become our own payment facilitator for credit cards, directly integrating with a company like First Data.
