Job Details

DESCRIPTION

This is a unique opportunity to join as a founding engineer for a new initiative being bootstrapped in a greenfield space that is ripe for disruption with technology. You will help write the Press Release to define exactly what we will build, design the v1, write the first lines of code and launch a new product to the market.

If you have found yourself yearning to solve more meaningful problems (in the grander scheme of things), you might be particularly interested in this opportunity. Technically, you should expect to work with devices, apps, large scale data processing and exchange and machine learning applications. You should also expect to learn tons about a meaningful domain that is not computer science by working alongside experts in that field. For the right candidate for this role, this learning opportunity will be a major draw.

In this early stage initiative, there will be a lot of opportunity to influence what we build and how to build it. We will need to balance how to minimize time to market for a v1 release with investments that are key to ensure we don't slow down to a crawl in later versions. High judgement engineers will find this is a fertile opportunity for demonstrating influence and high impact decision making.
