About the job

As Backend Engineer at Maybe, you'll be responsible for the server side code and APIs of our web applications. You'll be involved in the entire product development lifecycle including the design, development, deployment and maintenance of new and existing features. Ultimately, you'll be the driving force behind all backend activities.

The tech stack

We're still in very early days of Maybe, and as such, much of the tech stack is rapidly changing. Flexibility is key here and your input and expertise on the stack is very much wanted.

On a base level, experience with the following tech is a major pro:

  • SQL (we use Postgres, primarily)
  • TypeScript
  • Node
  • GraphQL
  • Serverless
  • Amazon Web Services (RDS, ECS, Lambda, KMS, CloudWatch)

About you

  • You've built complex backends in TypeScript/Node, but you also know other languages.
  • You've shipped large applications with many components and data structures.
  • You've worked with different databases and know how to optimize complex queries.
  • You have a proven ability to design interfaces that stand the test of time.
  • You have experience building and working on distributed systems.
  • You have experience integrating complex 3rd party APIs
  • You are strong self-manager, capable of being a "CEO" of your area.

About Maybe

At Maybe we're building the next generation of financial & retirement planning tools. Founded in 2021, we're working to equip consumers with the resources they need to take control of their financial future.

Working 30 years and then riding off in to the sunset at 65 isn't the goal for most people anymore. They want to experience life, take risks and pour their hearts in to what matters most to them. They want to dream. And Maybe helps them do that.

Maybe you open a coffee shop? Maybe you take a trip to Asia? Maybe you put your money in to index funds and live off the returns? Maybe you dabble in crypto? Maybe you invest in art? Maybe you buy your dream home?

Maybe helps you figure out what's possible and how to get there.

Compensation

Let me preface this by saying the way we do employment at Maybe is very atypical. We're trying hard to come up with a model for building a company that incentivizes team members to be loyal to their craft and not a company. If any of this is confusing, please just ask (josh@maybe.co). More than happy to talk things through!

At Maybe, we're building tools for financial independence and managing your wealth yourself, breaking the traditional system.

In the same way we want our customers to be independent and in control of their futures, we want our team to be as well. If we can't individually control our futures, how can we expect our users to do the same?

We have no full-time employees. Everyone works as a part-time, hourly contractor.

The rate for this role is $100/hour, increasing to $125 after your first 6 months.

Read about our anti-overtime policy →

In an effort to reduce overworking, your first 20 hours per week are billed at your full rate. Any hours past that are billed at 75% your hourly rate.

As an example, in your first year, if you worked 35 hours a week for 50 weeks of the year, your annual salary would be $175,780.

Job title: Senior Frontend (Typescript, React/React Native) developer
Type: Remote, permanent, full-time position

Do you have a soft spot for profitable companies with a meaningful, globally used and loved product? Would you like to work within a compact, super-capable team in a refreshing work environment? Would you like to work on an application that is changing the way we learn and communicate? Drops could be the place for you.

About us:
Our goal at Drops is to ensure effective language learning through a delightful, seamless, gamified experience. We strive to be the #1 app for vocabulary learning. Our app has been live on the App Store for 4 years, covering 42 languages, serving over 27 million users across the globe and has been featured on both the App Store (App of the Day) and Play Store (App of the Year in 2018). Drops has also been featured by TechCrunch, FastCo, Forbes, CNN, Bloomberg, VentureBeat and many, many more. In short, we’re a tiny but very powerful team spread (mostly) across Europe, achieving great things the remote way! In December 2020, Drops was acquired by Kahoot!, the world’s leading game-based learning platform

Check us out here: https://languagedrops.com

About you:
You’re a no-nonsense person, comfortable taking on a variety of projects who has been working within product companies and has extensive front-end development experience.

You’ve spent years working with React and have experience in React Native with a deep understanding of the internal workings be it working within the browser or a mobile client. You enjoy the challenge of growing a product from an (already) large user base to a larger one with tens of millions of MAU with all the complexities it comes with.

You are an advocate for static typing and prefer to use a minimal set of simple tools over a diverse range of complex ones.

You believe variety is the spice of life - In this role, you’ll be developing a complex app deployable to web and app stores, a static site generator, building internal automation infrastructure/tooling and contributing to our internal CMS. You could also be working on our fully serverless architecture on the backend if you feel comfortable doing so.

Drops is a deliberately small, but super effective team. You’re naturally drawn to the fate of the products & driven to grow as an engineer rather than to manage people.

The role:
You’ll be a core part of the development team, working on both our main (Drops) and auxiliary products (Droplets, Visual Dictionary, Internal CMS tooling). Drops values clear, honest communication and transparency. It’s the linchpin of our culture, success and freedom. You’ll be involved in both high and low level decision making and are available during European working hours (10AM - 6PM CET). Remember, we’re looking for a missionary here rather than a mercenary.

You will:
Work cross functionally with our lead designer / data analyst / engineers / project owner to define, scope, estimate and plan various aspects of the product.
Work independently (and with other engineers!) to develop new web experiences
Support of production applications / sites that you’ve built or helped to build
Communicate effectively and often to ensure that everyone is aligned

What’d be different here:
We’re a small team. We’re optimising for impact, not for headcount. You’ll be carefully considering any tradeoff that would lead to increased complexity
We’re using a single programming language - TypeScript. We have strict linter rules Every pull request needs to be approved before it lands in master. We use the rebase workflow and we release a few times a week
We’re using React + Redux to develop UI, on both mobile and the web. We use selectors extensively. Our backend is on AWS, deployed multi-region to Lambda and using RDS for our DB
We are BIG on AB testing. We focus on releasing high impact projects and minimise noise
We’re doing things in a functional way, concentrating state, minimising side effects and making dependencies explicit. We’re sharing 98%+ of the code between Android, iOS and Web
We automate where it has positive ROI
Our biggest challenge is (and will remain) managing the complexity of sharing a lot of code between different apps

You have:
At least 5 years of experience in software (product) development
At least 2 years of experience in building apps with React or React Native with state management tools (redux, flux, etc)
Experience architecting and developing complex web or mobile apps and static sites
Some experience in understanding basic user funnels, and collaborating with support to resolve user-facing issues
Project management experience (everyone manages projects at Drops)
Strong verbal and written communication skills
The ability to work well cross-functionally
Experienced in strongly typed languages

Benefits:
🌍 All the perks of remote working
👥 An awesomely compact 20 person team
🧠 Yearly educational allowance
💪 Fitness allowance
💻 High-end Apple hardware and ergonomic accessories
🏖 36 days of holiday per year
✈️ Quarterly team gathering somewhere in the world (Amsterdam, Iceland, Lisbon and Budapest were previous locations)
