Capbase is looking to hire a top-end javascript engineer to join our dynamic and growing remote team. Capbase is a digital governance platform for startups and securities transactions. We simplify legal compliance and corporate governance for startups.

We’re a small team, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to collaborate directly with the founders, and this role in particular will have an architectural scope over our continued development of our AWS based technology stack (Amplify, AppSync, CloudFront, Cognito, DynamoDB, ElasticSearch, and Lambda, among others).

We’re looking for an expert level Javascript programmer who stays up-to-date with the latest code standards (ES2019) and a zeal for testing.

In this role, you will:
  • Identify opportunities to reduce risk in the codebase and suggest opportunities to improve
  • Implement new product features and improve existing ones with an emphasis on maintainability, readability and reusability
  • Propose opportunities to improve our engineering processes, tools and team
  • Take ownership of key areas related to your responsibilities

A Capbase team member is:
  • Self motivated and self starting
  • Has a keen eye open for their work/life balance
  • Able to express themselves clearly in both written and spoken English

Specific Skills we’d love to bolster within, or add to our team:
  • Fluency in Javascript (specifically up to and including ES2019 additions, as well as stage 3 TC39 proposals)
  • Familiarity with developing applications for NodeJS 10/12 for AWS Lambdas
  • Familiarity with AWS SDKs for various technologies (those listed above and others)
  • Extensive experience using Jest, Mocha/Chai, or other Javascript testing frameworks
  • Familiarity with React and/or React Native (our client applications are based on these technologies)
  • Experience with document parsing and building data extraction tools using  parsing expression grammar (PEG)

In addition to a competitive salary and stock benefits, Capbase is proud to offer the following benefits:
  • 25 days annual leave to use for any purpose
  • $2,500 to purchase any equipment you need to do your job properly
  • $500 per year for professional development to use however you choose (conferences, books, online classes, etc)
  • Up to $300/mo in co-working membership allowance (market dependent)
  • Healthcare benefits fully paid for the employee, plus 75% covered for all dependents (only in countries without national healthcare)
  • An annual, expenses paid, global meetup of Capbase employees somewhere fun in the world

Founded in 2018, Capbase is backed by top-tier fintech VCs and angel investors from Silicon Valley. 

We are a diverse & distributed team located across several time zones and countries. We strive to create an inclusive culture that encourages people from different backgrounds to bring their unique, diverse perspectives to work. Applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in technology are strongly encouraged to apply.  We aim every day to build an environment that empowers us all to do the best work of our lives.
