Senior Independent Software Developer

A·Team is a VC-backed, stealth, application-only platform for senior software builders to team up with the best companies on their next big thing. After talking with hundreds of independent engineers, designers, and product folks, we know that consistently finding vetted, high-quality clients is hard, and projects are often too small to be rewarding. A·Team matches small teams of the most talented builders in the world with companies backed by a16z, YC, Softbank, General Catalyst, etc. on a contract basis for many of their most important initiatives. We quietly launched in May 2020, and have helped A·Teamers earn $7.3+ million since.

As part of A·Team, you can expect:

  • High-paying, meaningful missions with the most audacious companies sent your way; generally $110-$190/hr, with vetted, fascinating clients doing work that matters. A·Team is picky, and only works with companies referred to us by top funds or existing members and clients such as Lyft, McGraw Hill, the former-CEO of Waze, a few new unicorns, and dozens of venture-backed startups by a16z, YC, Softbank, GC, etc.
  • Keep 100% of what you make: we exist to empower independent builders, which is why A.Team charges a percentage on top of your standard rate.
  • Do more with a team you like: our focus is on small, diverse, cross-functional teams of insanely talented developers, PMs, designers, growth leads, etc. This is because clients with bigger budgets & more ambitious work need teams to solve problems, not individuals to do tasks. That said, we try to keep friends together, since clients love builders who have worked together before.
  • Full autonomy: we only want you to join teams when the timing's right. Often they start around 15-20hrs/week, and last at least 3-6 months (longer if it's going great, or contract-to-hire if true love is found).
  • Small, curated, off-the-record gatherings: for conversations you wouldn't have elsewhere & connecting with other top-tier builders who you may like to collaborate with.

What you’ll do:

  • Once part of A.Team, you’ll regularly be invited to impactful missions that match your interests, which you can accept or decline. Take your pick from early-stage incubations with world-class founders, to fast-growing super-funded companies, to old school non-tech incumbents looking to build as a tech giant would
  • Missions usually involve building an ambitious piece of software from 0 to 1 on a small 3-4 person team.
  • You’ll be paid to scope it out, give the client options, guide strategy, and execute on the selected solution. Sometimes the client has a clear vision, sometimes not; which is why A.Team builders tend to be senior folks who can work together to find the right direction.

Who A.Team is for:

  • Senior software developers who left large companies and high-growth startups to pursue their craft with autonomy.
  • Those who prefer consistent contract work over a full-time role, who want to create a variety of new products alongside other top-tier builders.
  • The majority of A.Teamers spend most of their time doing independent work, but a sizeable percentage are either employed full-time (but testing out client work), bootstrapping a side project, or looking for their next big thing

Who A.Team is not for:

  • People looking for small gigs
  • Folks looking to build simple wordpress/wix/squarespace-style websites
  • Those still early in their careers and recent university/bootcamp grads (at least not yet)

Our long-term vision:
This obviously isn’t a standard job post for a standard job; A·Team is a new type of company for a new kind of independent software builder. We call them "unhirables": people who traditional companies couldn’t hire full-time even if they wanted to, but who want to do their most meaningful work with their favorite people in small, autonomous, distributed expert teams.

To help us secure amazing missions, we raised $5 million+ (not public, yet) from NFX, Village Global, and Box Group, along with the former CEO of Upwork, the founders of Fiverr and Lemonade, Apple's Global Head of Recruiting, YC Partner Aaron Harris, Wharton's Adam Grant, and Duke's Dan Ariely.

  • We treat you as humans first, employees second. Because we can’t fight for the world’s financial health, if we’re not healthy ourselves. This means the usual perks but it also means flexibility.

Other benefits include;

  • 25 days Annual leave a year + public holidays

The salary range is so wide because I would like some of the compensation to be variable or performance based (such as bonuses when new apps and or meaningful features are launched). I know money is the most important thing to you. It is for me too. I am prepared to pay the right person a lot of money, especially for a remote job. This is up to you and I to discuss. If you want equity I am willing to do that after a standard vesting cliff period. In fact I would love if you really wanted equity and were that type of person -- one that cared about the long-term.

Saga Ventures is hiring for the role of CTO/Tech Lead. We’ll give you any title you want if you get things done.

As CTO/Tech Lead you will be responsible for the oversight of, the hiring process of and the development of multiple web and mobile applications.

Saga Ventures is a startup based in Switzerland that builds products that solve its founder’s problems. Basically the founder is solving his own problems with software. The founder is technical but has too many ideas and wants to implement more than one idea at a time. Your job is to lead the development of these software projects. Whether that is outsourcing hiring on freelance websites or hiring full time employees, that’s your choice (almost entirely; I may push back on a decision to see how well you’ve thought it out or something like that).

Top 5 reasons to work with Saga Ventures.

The person you report to (me, the guy writing this) wants as minimal contact as possible. This means you will be working autonomously almost the entire time. You will be asked to give a weekly report of the progress made each week on each application. This is how I will judge your performance. I will track budgeting with you. We may need to have calls, especially at the beginning of the job, but I generally do not like having calls. I am not one of those bosses who insists on doing things for the sake of doing them.

This is not a role where you will learn from others, technically speaking. You should be confident and familiar with all aspects of web and mobile application development (React Native specific). You should be comfortable with and desire to work independently.

The ideas and applications we are working on are not pie in the sky ideas. They are all intended to solve current problems of the founder. For some of the ideas, competing applications exist. For others, the problems we will be working on are not currently realized by the public. They are new. One example problem is how to easily share only the code that a remote developer needs to work on a repository of code.

Two of the five ideas have partially developed apps. They need love and attention from someone focused.

The themes of the products are:

Remote Work
Investing and Finance

Things I Care About

Your ability to work independently on full feature sets bringing product specifications to life.
You should basically never ask me a technical question. I am trying to not code at all here. I do product, design, strategy, finance, business stuff. You do and lead everything else.
Be able to take ownership of problems with a determination to solve them (this sentence was from a boilerplate job description from another one that I copied but it sounded good.

Things I don’t care about:

Agile development or any other development styles and how you get things built. [I may steer you towards certain development approaches though (such as using the same tech stack and directory structure across apps to maximize development efficiency)].
Where you live
When you work on a daily basis. If we don’t have to speak with one another, we don’t. It would be great if we could be a text-only company. Automattic is. Why can’t Saga Ventures be?

Skills required:

React/React-Native/React-Native-Web for frontend
Experience leading development projects or the confidence and ability to do so
Would be nice if you had a good understanding of AWS with some devops experience

As CTO/Tech Lead you must be highly proficient in React Native. We share as much code as possible between mobile and web applications by using the React Native Web package.

Our backend is the classic Express, MongoDB/Mongoose.
