Yup is a system for determining the agreed-upon social value of anything on the Internet, from Tweets and YouTube videos to blogs and news articles. It provides stronger incentives for giving meaningful opinions online by allowing users to earn money and influence if their opinion is supported by other influential members of the community. When users rate content, people, or products they have both their reputation and potential income at stake, which results in better incentives for judging content meaningfully. Our goal is to create a universal, disintermediated layer of social consensus, where the agreed-upon social value of anything online can be determined without reliance on centralized platforms like YouTube or Twitter

We’re a group of technologists and product enthusiasts passionate about leveraging emerging technologies to solve hard problems in novel ways. Our team comes from diverse backgrounds with experiences at companies and institutions like Google, Microsoft, Chanel, and West Point. We believe that innovative technology combined with a strong product mindset can help us invent creative solutions that were never thought to be possible.

What you'll be doing:

  • Developing products for interacting with the Yup protocol and representing social influence and identity
  • Improving the performance, reliability, and quality of existing products and services (including our chrome extension, web app, and supporting services)
  • Building, testing, and deploying easy-to-use features with tools like React, Vue, ES6, styled components, and webpac

What we look for in you:

  • Experience with modern JavaScript/Node.js
  • Experience building user-facing features using component-based UI frameworks like React or Vue
  • Passion for building high quality, easy-to-use products
  • Solid communication skills and structured thinking
  • Attention to code quality, maintainability, and scalability
  • Self-starter who would thrive in fast-paced working environment

Nice to haves:

  • You've worked directly with production React or Vue apps, with significant usage
  • You have general knowledge / experience with blockchain and cryptocurrencies
