About: WageVest is a Bitcoin-driven fintech company attacking the monetary inflation problem of fiat at one of the biggest economic chockpoints: salaries.
WageVest is bringing together payroll systems with trading platforms to bring about a new type of employee-employer contract that enables salaries to grow with market growth, leading to employees having more valuable salaries, while employees are able to better attract & retain talent. Take a look at our landing page at https://wagevest.com to get a high level overview of how we plan to implement this.
Position Overview You will lead development of an MVP of the platform we are building that can be launched to beta/pilot customers. You will select other developers or designers as needed to execute on subtasks, including a final review for security prior to launch. You will ensure any major bugs uncovered with pilot customers are quickly fixed.
Experience Needed: postgre databases, REST APIs, Python or (preferably) node.JS, 3rd party API integrations, UI integrations, managing small teams
Scope: 2-3 months to build MVP -- integrates 3 external APIs. Web app that is desktop optimized for admin/employer, and mobile optimized for employee. Two account types. The app will have a fairly limited set of capabilities for both account types with respect to the operations that each can perform. Two numerical inputs from admin and API access, then selections across a portfolio vector that connects to an exchange API and banking API, along with periodic buying and selling that pulls and feeds data into payroll API. A simple analytics page for employees.
We do not need the app to be beautiful at this stage since it is B2B and we will be starting with a relatively small number of pilot customers (10-100) before actively trying to scale. Ease of use is more important than aesthetics for now.
As we scale, we are likely to raise money since we already have confirmed prospective customers interested, so this could lead to full time employment following the successful roll-out of the MVP.
Given the nature of WageVest, we will of course be willing to negotiate a bitcoin *denominated* hourly rate, that gets locked in at the start of the project.

Inflation-resistant salaries. Employees get their pay locked to fixed quantities of stock or bitcoin. Companies get the best talent.
