Senior Software Engineer at Tiller


Tiller (tillerhq.com) is a nimble, distributed company transforming the way people handle their finances. We make it easy to track spending and manage money in a spreadsheet with daily bank feeds and helpful templates. We’re passionate about empowering people with their financial data in a flexible, private, and customizable format so they can take control of their future. 

We are looking for a senior software engineer with a primary focus on front-end development to play a pivotal role in our growing product development team, working on our web console, Microsoft 365 Excel add-in, Google Sheets add-on, and other client side components of our service. You will be part of a small, optimistic, mission-driven team that is improving the financial lives of customers (and enjoys sharing a few laughs along the way).

You’ll take ownership of critical front-end projects and drive toward secure, well-architected solutions through both incremental improvements and new innovations that will delight our customers. You should have a deep understanding of JavaScript and React concepts, a propensity for figuring stuff out, and strong front-end coding skills. You were born a problem solver and love finding efficient and durable ways to solve difficult problems.

What You’ll Do
  • Build secure solutions that honors the trust customers are placing in our service
  • Collaborate with the dev team and the rest of Tiller’s team on user interface ideas and applications
  • Lead the development of highly responsive user interface components using React and other frameworks
  • Tenaciously dive into complex application code, figure it out, and improve or update it
  • Write things down, always leaving better code and documentation so it’s easier for others to understand your reasoning and follow your tracks
  • Troubleshoot operational issues when a customer is experiencing a quirky condition or when you or your teammates notice something isn’t quite right
  • Nimbly move between different front-end environments, each with their own constraints and frameworks, including web apps, Google add-ons, Microsoft add-ins, and others 
  • Improve the state of current client-side solutions by introducing best practices where appropriate
  • Help scale the effectiveness of our product development team by collaboratively improving the tools, techniques, principles, and practices we use every day

Helpful For Success
  • Experience with our tech stack, including JavaScript, TypeScript, jQuery, CSS, HTML, React, Angular, Google Apps Script, Google Workspaces add-on APIs and architectures, and Microsoft 365 add-in APIs and architectures.
  • Experience building web applications that utilize APIs (both in-house and 3rd party) to drive user experiences

Why Tiller
  • We’re small and growing, so you’ll have tremendous agency and outsized impact on our developing culture, the Tiller service, and the success of our customers
  • You’ll be surrounded by awesome, supportive colleagues who know how to have fun together
  • We’ve been fully remote from day one; work from anywhere
  • You’ll have an opportunity to explore a broad range of development and operations tools, technologies, and practices; you won’t be siloed or pigeon-holed
  • You’ll have ongoing and repeated opportunities to pull up a seat at a lot of tables and wear multiple ‘hats’, depending on where your interests and capabilities lie; we have growth needs well beyond software development, and you’ll be close to them all, including IT, security, ops, customer support, product management, marketing 
  • We’re pioneers in Open Banking, a world-wide security and privacy initiative that gives customers more control over what financial institution information they share, and with whom
  • Our customers tend to stick around - we have one of the highest customer retention rates among consumer fintech services
  • Our team also sticks around, and we have uniquely high retention
  • You will be eligible for stock options and equity ownership
  • We provide health care coverage
