Job Description

Smartrr is building a billing engine that allows businesses to serve subscription customers in a manner that is intuitive for both businesses and their customers.
It’s no accident that in spite of the recent explosion of interest, subscriptions are still an under-explored region of the eCommerce landscape. Subscription billing is fundamentally a challenging technical problem, largely because each subscription is a smart contract to be tended to and cared for rather than a single transaction to be used and forgotten. A relationship, rather than a fling. This extension of the transaction-point into transaction-line not only adds to the usual pressure of Getting It Right with other people’s money, but also opens up realms of features pertaining to up-sells, discounts, swaps, and other mechanisms by which to minimize customer frustration and increase retention.
Smartrr is over-subscribed, meaning vendors and investors are lining up to get in on the action. That being said, we are still very much an early stage start-up; if you prove that you’re adept, we’ll give you an extraordinary amount of license to work on the projects you think are most important and interesting. We are therefore looking principally for creative, ambitious engineers who are willing to take on a little extra risk in exchange for the rewards of that license.
What we like to see:
• Confidence in Typescript (or another typed language)
• Mastery of Postgres
• Thorough understanding of CS fundamentals
• E-commerce experience
• Experience architecting distributed systems
Our tech stack:
• Typescript
• TypeORM, Node.js, Express
• PostgreSQL
• React
• GraphQL (Apollo)
Nice to haves:
• Kubernetes
• Google Cloud Platform
• AWS (SQS, Lambda)
• Experience integrating with third party APIs (Klaviyo, Stripe)
Smartrr is backed by some of the worlds most prominent angel investors and fin-tech venture capital firms
