Full Stack Software Engineer

We are seeking full-stack software engineers with 2+ years of experience to join our Engineering Team in Manhattan, New York.

 

SeedInvest is the largest venture/startup investing platform in the U.S. with a rapidly growing network of over 500,000 users and has successfully funded north of 200 startups to date. We are in the first innings of having “a little bit of startup” in everyone’s investment portfolio and believe our growing suite of products will give rise to a better alternative to the traditional private capital formation rails that exist today. With a record 2020 (and 2021 building on that) under our belts, we are in the middle of rapid growth and change for a new generation of investors and startups everywhere. 

Interested? Great!

 

We would love to hear from you if you have:

  • 2 or more years of experience with software engineering
  • Passion to learn about the technologies you use and take the initiate to dive in and learn more when you are unsure
  • Ownership of your work and continuously want to improve the products you've built
  • A deep passion for startups and entrepreneurship
  • An interest in working cross-functionality and building products vs. only writing code
  • Ability to work very well cross-functionally in a flat startup

We expect you to:

  • Design and manage new web applications for SeedInvest that help founders or investors on our website (Check out current startups that raise money on our site: www.seedinvest.com/offerings)
  • Improve our current products to make them faster and even more user friendly
  • Eventually move easily across the entire stack to build and work on robust webapps on AWS
  • Work closely with SeedInvest's founders and business teams to solve complex problems

And extra credit if you have:

  • Previous experience working in fin-tech
  • Previous experience working in a highly regulated environment 
  • Previous experience working at or founded a high-growth startup
  • Expertise in AWS, Python/Django, Angular, VueJs, or React

Additional Information

 

About Product & Engineering at SeedInvest

The engineering team is also dubbed the product team at SeedInvest; the team’s overarching mission is to build a top-class suite of products and experiences for the new wave of venture capital investors and startups. Our entire engineering team is able to run full-stack across product responsibilities with a core responsibility/emphasis on engineering (tech ops, infrastructure, back-end, front-end) and healthy contributions to product management and design. 

We choose the technology we work with based on a combination of near and medium-term pros and cons while looking to design systems for the long-term. While we are therefore generally a technology agnostic team, our core stack currently consists of:

  • Angular/Vue
  • Django/Python
  • AWS 

We launch products in bite-size releases and iterate quickly. While we don’t follow agile/scrum exactly, we take tenants and stay flexible in our approach to work.

  • We work in collaborative pods of 2-5 engineers.
  • We have daily standups.
  • We keep 1 engineer on-call each week.
  • We have monthly retrospectives and are continuously improving documentation.
  • All pull requests are subject to code review.
  • We deploy multiple times per week.

 

Representative Projects on the Roadmap

While we keep longer-term roadmaps iterative, the following are several products/projects we are exploring in 2021 based on company-wide strategy:

  • Building a new investor on-ramp experience for the millions of first-time startup investors
  • Overhauling, re-designing, and re-architecting our fundraising profile pages 
  • Auto Invest 2.0
  • Post-fundraise platform allowing founders in our portfolio to simply and easily manage shareholders
  • Institutionalizing (and re-designing) internal APIs and services

 

Location

While we are looking to continue to build the team in Manhattan, New York, the entire SeedInvest team is currently working from home and we are open to the idea of ongoing support for remote work. Please let us know if remote work is a requirement for you!

 

Our Values

Love SeedInvest -- SeedInvest is a mission-focused organization. Everyone on the team is driven to help entrepreneurs and democratize venture capital. While we don't expect people to "Love SeedInvest" day 1, we hope for every new team member to eventually get there.

Act like an owner -- no job is beneath us. We roll up our sleeves, own mistakes, and are better for them. We optimize for the company, the team, then ourselves in that order.

Be committed -- we are results-focused and complete jobs from start to finish, doing whatever it takes. Once we align and commit, we follow through and deliver the outcome promised.

Be biased for action -- and proactively look for opportunities to deliver value, learn, and improve.

We have a host of other supporting values that we keep in mind as we build our team, but generally are excited for people that 1) align with us in our core values and 2) as different as possible from everyone else on the team from there.
