Senior Front End / Full Stack Engineer (Remote)
At Colossus®, we want to produce the best content in the business and investing world and the best place to discover, search and consume that content.

To fulfill our mission we are now hiring a handful of roles to accelerate our content production and build the best podcast player to learn from that content. Read our post about the content and products we are building: Colossus® - The Next Chapter.

This role will play a pivotal role in a small team in helping us fulfill our mission.

The Role

We are seeking engineers whose interest and skills center on front end development and UX design. This role will help lead our effort to build a variety of software tooling necessary for our business functions including internal and customer facing applications.

We’ve already built a substantial business at Colossus and have a large and fast-growing audience. We know how to create the content. We need your help to build the tools that better connects our audience with our expanding library of educational content.

Why this is such a good job:

This is a job for an engineer who loves hard challenges, wants the potential upside of startup, but not the core risks of one. Here’s what the job offers:

Autonomy: We are hiring someone who wants the challenge of building remarkable software applications. The only way that is possible is to give you lots of control. Our team will of course be a part of the process as prime users, and we have no shortage of ideas or suggestions. We want this person to significantly contribute to the overall look and feel of the applications they are building. We want this person to be a hard core builder - they know how to build applications of exceptional quality.

Support: Our co-founder and engineering lead Joe Berg excels at back-end development. He single-handedly built Colossus which offers best-in-class search for our library of podcasts. As a senior front end / full stack engineer, you’ll have the benefit of working with Joe and his growing team so that you can focus on building amazing applications for users.

Upside: Our compensation package for this role will include equity in the business, profit sharing (in a business that is already cashflow positive), and the ability to build your own team. We also have high quality healthcare, dental, vision, and 401k benefits.

Security: We funded the business ourselves and its already financially self-sustaining.

A Blank Canvas: In our opinion, this is the most important feature of the job. This is a chance to build something from scratch that people love and that you can be proud of, and to do it with an exceptional team.

Requirements:
  • Must be interested in business and investing, because that is our focus. We will gauge this curiosity carefully.
  • Must resonate with the Colossus Values
  • Must despise user friction.
  • Must have experience shipping production quality UI applications built with modern frameworks such as React or Vue, industry best practices, and open source software. Bonus points if you’ve contributed to any open source projects.
  • Must have a deep, masterful understanding of Javascript, HTML, HTTP, CSS, Webpack, NPM, and Github with a track record to prove it.
  • Not required - any specific location. You can work from anywhere within 3 hours of Eastern Standard Time.

How to apply:

Send an e-mail to [email protected] with Subject line - “Senior Front End / Full Stack Engineer” and include:
  • A thoughtful introduction about yourself, background, and favorite thing about investing.
  • Link to your LinkedIn or resume.
  • Github profile, if applicable.
  • Things you’ve created and/or personal projects you are proud of.
