As of June 14, 2020, we're no longer hiring for this position. But if you want to stay in touch for future opportunities that may be a good fit, please feel free to reach out. At Upsolve, we believe every American deserves a second chance. We do this by making bankruptcy accessible to low-income Americans who cannot afford attorneys.

Who We're Looking For
As the 2nd engineer joining our team, you will be foundational to the impact of the organization and helping us reach all low income Americans with a product that can help them through some of the toughest times of their live. Growth engineering delivers direct impact and also generates revenue that keeps our nonprofit running. In this role you will have the opportunity to be creative, adaptive, and ground breaking for what’s possible in the social impact sector. You will encounter situations that no one at Upsolve has encountered before and will be responsible for persisting through to get a solution shipped. We are looking for team members with the following traits and experience:
You have a strong focus on impact.
You have a willingness to learn whatever it takes to reach impact.
You love data, analytics, and ways to measure features you ship.
You ship incrementally to move fast and can communicate how the team needs to handle product transitions.
You’re scrappy. We have to out-compete heavily funded and publicly traded competitors for organic search traffic.
You can navigate and extend a backend to support your incredible frontend experiences.
You’ve woven complex combinations of services and tools to ensure solid user experiences for users or internal teams.
Given wireframes and our React/Styled Components component library, you can maintain design consistency.
What You'll Get Out of It:
A welcoming and collaborative environment with people who are dedicating their lives to fighting poverty
Working and talking with users who rely on our product to change to the course of their lives and the generations following.
An environment for rapid experimentation and ownership
Ownership of entire systems and features that deliver society changing impact
Contributing to the foundation and culture of a young and growing organization
Experience working cross-functionally and exposure to a variety of business functions
Cash compensation on par with for-profit tech companies
An incredibly high bar for velocity of shipping and the quality of your work.
You’re pragmatic in knowing when to refactor and when to ship.
3+ years’ experience writing production-grade code in a modern programming language.
Professional experience incorporating Google Analytics, Search Console, event based tracking (ex: Amplitude), and SQL into your workflow.
Desired: Professional experience with NodeJS and AWS.
Desired: Appreciation for design and willingness to help advance a higher bar for design
