Sr Software Engineer

JOB TYPE: Freelance, Contract Position – No agencies (See notes below)

LOCATION: Remote (TimeZone: BST, CST, EST)

HOURLY RANGE: Our client is looking to pay $40 – $120 USD / HR

ESTIMATED DURATION: 40Hrs/Week – Long Term, 6-month project

Who they are 

Our client is a real estate syndication platform that helps syndicators streamline equity raising, automate operations, and reach more investors. It is a marketplace between small syndicators and investors. Our goal is to help everyone achieve financial freedom through real estate investing. We have been growing at 80-100% week over week.

They believe we will be the most dominant real estate syndication software within 2 years. In the last 1.5 years, we built a solid product, achieved product market fit, and we will raise a seed round in 1-2 months (so yes, we will be venture backed). We will be a 1BB+ company one day if we execute correctly. 

They are engineering driven (founder was an engineering manager from Silicon Valley), are obsessed with talent density, and want to hire the best engineers possible who are also highly collaborative. 

They are also highly entrepreneurial and personal finance minded. We believe that our employees will one day go on to create their own companies, invest in real estate, and want to grow their wealth and achieve financial independence in their own right.

Who are we looking for?

  • For better or worse, we like folks with deep algorithm skills. Yes, those are the people who did TopCoder or LeetCode and that’s fine. Candidates who love solving puzzles.
  • We prioritize folks who take the initiative to go out and make something on their own. If candidates had done a side project, please tell us about it.
  • They are orthogonal to each other, you either are highly algorithmic or you have a passion for tinkering with projects, you don’t need both.This is a full-time, fully remote role. Ideally, you are located in North America, but we are open to other time zones on a case-by-case basis.

Benefits & Perks

  • Competitive pay for all, and substantial equity if you are senior
