To sum it up...

A bank for tech startups with an emphasis on beauty and usability

Role overview

🏦 Mercury is a bank for tech startups. We’re building a product that will power the future of American industry. This turns out to be pretty ambitious for a team of nine, so we’re bringing one more product-minded generalist engineer on board to help us achieve it.

Responsibilities

🦄 Work on a beautiful app: Since many of our customers are startups, they appreciate a well-implemented design. We have high standards for our UI, and we think it shows on our website. We encourage you to sign up and check out our onboarding experience, or read our blog post about our date picker.

💪 Push the limits of TypeScript: As a bank, preventing errors is a top priority for us, and we take advantage of TypeScript’s advanced static typing features to prevent them.

Write clean React code: We have 78,425 lines of TypeScript and 14,145 lines of CSS—that’s a lot for a small team, so there’s no room for spaghetti code. React helps us keep it manageable.

🈶 Exercise ownership over the product: Our engineers work closely with our designer and contribute their own ideas on making the product better.

The ideal candidate can handle technical challenges like configuring a Webpack pipeline, but also cares deeply about user experience. You should also have a year of engineering experience or a computer science education. Experience with the frontend specifically is not required. Interest or experience in iOS, Android, or Haskell development is a plus.
