Companies we've collaborated with


Software Engineer

FT FE: React/Vue/Ng, Redux/Cycle/FunctionalJS.

You should be able to show prudent and thoughtful aspirations as a software engineer. You must have experience implementing performant, pixel-perfect, maintainable, well-tested UIs, and you should be able to do so in about one-third the time that most competent people think possible. We work mostly in React, but will use a variety of technologies for new projects. Interest in Haskell and Solidity a plus.  Work whatever hours you choose, from anywhere.  Compensation is competitive and based on North American rates.
