United States Remote

This job is no longer accepting applications.

About: WageVest is enabling a new type of employee-employer contract that enables inflation-resistant salaries. We are developing a SaaS product that integrates with employer and employee financial/payroll toolchains, as well as adding exchange platforms to automatically execute the necessary contracts. This is not a trivial "pay me in bitcoin", since that still leaves contracts 100% denominated in dollars -- we change the denominator of the contract itself. See this thread to get a sense of the implications of that: https://twitter.com/mchapiro/status/1467986594514628610 and check out the company Twitter for more of an overview: https://twitter.com/wagevest/

Position Overview You will lead development of the platform we are building that can be launched to 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: Backend: postgreSQL, Prisma, REST APIs, nest.JS node.JS, typescript. Frontend: React, typescript, storybook

3rd party API integrations (banking and payroll related), and experience managing small teams

Scope: Full-time, ongoing position (~4-6 weeks to finish product for launch and then continuing from there) -- most of the API integrations and a lot of the backend is already built, including significant unit testing. Uses several APIs. Web app is desktop optimized for admin/employer, and mobile optimized for employee. Two account types. The app has a fairly limited set of capabilities for both account types with respect to the operations that each can perform. The contracts to enable the platform to work are fairly straightforward. We will need to do end-to-end feature testing and conduct a security audit prior to launch, as well as thorough debugging pre-launch given that this is a critical financial product.

We have validated product-market-fit, with customers ready to go as soon as we launch. Given the revenue-model and high-demand, we are delaying raising significant funds until post-launch so this is a contractor position for now.

We will offer the best possible bitcoin vesting for employees once we raise more funds.
