Functional TypeScript Engineer (Mid/Senior/Principal)
Boston, MA • Full-Time • Engineering
BondLink provides a SaaS platform to bond issuers in the $4 trillion municipal bond industry. We have recently raised a large Series A, we have strong revenue growth, and we are already working with many of the largest issuers in the country.
While our product is finance focused, make no mistakes; internally we are a genuine tech-first startup culture.
Our co-founders include a serial tech entrepreneur with multiple successes and a senior ex-government official with deep experience in the wheelhouse of our product offering.
Culturally we provide all the startup bells and whistles, and we have a beautiful new office in Fort Point that we’re looking to fill with talented people.
Who We Are
- A small but growing team of engineers using functional programming concepts to build a high quality and reliable product.
- 100% dedicated to TypeScript for everything that runs in the browser and even things that don't!
- TypeScript is even used for our command line build processes (gulpfiles, webpack configs, etc.) via ts-node.
- Steadfast proponents of the FP-TS and React ecosystems.
- Fanatical about writing software in such a way that the compiler will spot mistakes at compile time instead of discovering them at run time.
- In addition to leveraging the TypeScript and SCSS compilers / linters, we go so far as to write our own SASS / SCSS functions to fail at compilation time instead of simply returning "null" and discovering CSS issues at run time.
- Work hand in hand with our tech savvy design team to create truly living style guides with Storybook and our SCSS and React components.
Who You Are
- Familiar with the concepts above or eager to learn -- we are open and willing to teach strong candidates on the job.
- Take pride and satisfaction in seeing static designs come to life in the browser.
- Experience with TypeScript and/or other statically typed languages highly preferred.
- 2+ years professional experience with HTML 5, CSS 3 and/or SCSS/SASS/LESS.
- Want to work with modern browsers. We only officially support the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge and IE 11+.
- Interest in working on a small team and being involved in technological decisions that shape the evolution of our product.
- No financial industry knowledge required.
- Must be authorized to work in the US as we are unable to sponsor visas at this time.
