As a first engineer on the team, you’ll be empowered to shape our software architecture, finding innovative solutions to complex problems, talking to customers, and incorporating their feedback, and growing into a leadership role as part of your career progression. “Founding engineer” is a fuzzy term, and for us it covers a range.

Ability to have fun and take breaks when needed   What you’ll do:   Build the next version of Arbol: v1 is a no-code solution built on Bubble, Discord, and Stripe.   • Define our near-term and long-term technical roadmap. We will look to you for guidance on our technology stack and approach.   • Write quality, clean, and secure code. You will be responsible for building and maintaining a well-architected product.   • Work closely with the founding team on product decisions and strategy. We expect a point of view and a collaborative partner who is interested in finding creative solutions   • Be part of hiring and building an engineering team to execute on the vision we’ve developed together.   • Understand customers to figure out what we should be building and how we should build it   • Working with the founding team to translate business requirements into engineering tasks   • Manage our technical budget through decision making on different contractors or different vendors (for example, BAAS providers or other fintech API providers) that meet the needs of our users and allow us to launch workable prototypes more quickly.   Application & Interview process   • Submit your application and resume on, including samples from your portfolio, and a few sentences on why you’re interested in this opportunity through email at arbol@growarbol.com and favio@growarbol.com   • Applicants that progress to live interviews will meet with our co-founders.
