We are a close team of entrepreneurial minded developers whose ideas are outpacing our time-capacity. So we are looking for a talented scrappy 'get shit done' developer to jump on board this rocket ship with us. Our goal is to deliver a simply amazing experience for our customers and to be the leader in the industry. If you want to break every rule in the book and make history, this opportunity is for you! As YC taught us, we talk to users and write code & we love doing that! We're backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Greylock, Benchmark, SV Angel and other top investors. We're disrupting a $20bn market and excited to meet you!
