We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer who wants to build mobile and web platforms for Americans in financial need. The right person for this role is highly knowledgeable about modern web frameworks, having built and maintained something significant with Vue, React, or Angular.

Regardless of your background, the right person for this role understands that first-rate software emerges from a relentless focus on getting the details right. And, most importantly, the right person for this role shares our fundamental belief that Americans who are experiencing financial hardship deserve first-rate software.

Propel is a for-profit software company that holds its social mission at its core. Our investors include Andreessen Horowitz, the Omidyar Network, Kevin Durant, Serena Williams, and Nas.

  • A get-stuff-done and fun and caring culture
  • Meaningful work and a strong shared sense of mission
  • Competitive compensation (including equity) and excellent benefits

What you will do:

  • Build software systems used by millions of Americans in their moments of financial need
  • Work with our design team to define and create a world-class user experience
  • Ensure that our technology works across a range of situations - low-end Android, limited data plans, etc
  • Effectively communicate with team members during code reviews
  • Participate in building the culture and processes of a growing engineering team

What you have:

  • 3+ years of frontend development
