This is your break-out opportunity to join a rapidly growing startup as a founding member of its engineering team.

This Software Engineer role will be the first full-time engineering employee of the company and is mission critical. You will partner directly with the technical founder and creator of the TRAY system to take it to the next level of growth and scale.

This opportunity comes with early-employee level stock options as well as a competitive salary + bonus combination.


You will be a lead developer of the back-end code, which already processes millions of dollars of order volume for clients that include multi-billion dollar enterprises and also have opportunities to contribute in the Android and iOS development. You’ll work with the existing remote engineering team and have opportunities to contribute to other areas (front end, UX), if so inclined. Additional technical and/or team leadership opportunities can come very quickly for those interested.
