Every piece of software at Fig is developed in-house. We believe in efficiency and build it all custom so it fits together seamlessly. Our standard is perfect information sharing across all the business areas and stacks.

As our Frontend Developer, you will be a core member of that team. You’ll help us build infrastructure that scales to handle large amounts of data quickly and maintains information security. The ideal candidate has back-end experience and a passion for building elegantly robust systems.

Our core stack is built in Ruby on Rails, Postgres and Javascript. Core responsibilities:

• Lead development work on front-end and back-end projects with our CTO and Lead Developer. Potential projects include:

o Expanding front-end UI
o Automation of core loan management system processes
o Feature development for new products and machine learning

• Review pull requests and write spec – everyone does their share on our team
• Thought & build partner on the design of our long-term backend architecture

Who We’re Looking For
You think about the second and third and even fourth order implications with everything you build. You want to use your strong analytical and quantitative skills to help underserved, working class communities. You like the challenge of letting really smart people look for holes in your code.

Essential Qualifications:
• A belief that finance can improve the lives of a large number of Americans
• Self-starter who can build and ship features, and are not afraid to take responsibility over major portions of code base
• Experience with OOP
• Proficient in Ruby on Rails
• React.js proficiency
• Bachelor’s Degree or relevant industry experience

Bonus Points:
• Experience with Convox / Docker / AWS
• Finance experience
• Data Engineering experience
• System Security experience

A Family Affair
We’re a small team of people – one more with you – and we know + trust each other.

Our motto is work hard play hard– whether it’s barbecuing in the summer or skiing in the winter. We value family and traditions, whether it’s inviting spouses to join our Christmas party or making sure our whole team is home for the holidays.

Another huge advantage to working in a small and tight-knit team: we wear many hats. You will have your core area of expertise but you’ll also work as part of the whole team, picking up special projects, duties and skills to make sure we delight our customers while growing our business.

At the end of the day, you’ll learn how the whole business operates – from the way our customers think to loan portfolio valuation and everything in between. We will help you to see beyond your projects, thinking about how they affect the business strategically and our customer communities. Our goal is to provide every Fig team member the training and exposure to all areas of our business, so any one team member can make game-changing decisions. Together, we’re just Voltron.
