  • Sundae: Full-Stack Engineer

    Why is it called an Ice Cream Sundae?

    Andrew Swain
    Andrew Swain
    Co-Founder
    Former CFO at AirBnB and LendingHome. “Bold, motivating leader” that’s a “huge amount of fun to work with.”

    In 1881, George Hallauer walked into his favorite ice cream shop and ordered an ice cream soda. But recent ”Blue Laws” made it illegal to sell soda (a scandalous drink) on Sundays, so the proprietor gave him a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and smothered it with chocolate syrup, previously reserved for ice cream sodas. Even though it was missing a key ingredient (soda), the concoction became a fad, and people started asking for the "Sunday Treat" every day. It was spelled ”Sundae” to avoid any association with the religious Sabbath. That idea of a missing ingredient inspired the team at Sundae, 138 years later, to become "Homebuyers with Heart." They buy homes that need some extra love (and a good general contractor) at a generous price. People selling distressed homes are often in a tough spot, and Sundae’s process is designedto help them (including a $10K cash advance and the option to move on your own timeline). They are a Founders Fund backed company with product-market fit, scaling revenue, and a massive addressable market opportunity. Their team is comprised of seasoned leaders from real estate and marketplace businesses and with significant high-growth company experience (Airbnb, Dropbox, Chime, LendingHome). Andrew Swain, Co-Founder at Sundae (and the former CFO at AirBnB), is searching for the company’s first engineering hire. They have two roles open for Full-Stack engineers, a director of engineering and a full-stack engineer. Sundae is an incredibly well-funded pre-Series A company with a seasoned leadership team and proven product-market fit. This is an awesome opportunity to get in on the ground floor and help shape both the engineering culture and the tech stack at the company for the foreseeable future. Must have a big heart to apply.

    The fascinating numbers behind school finance

    Kelly Hoppe
    Kelly Hoppe
    Director of Client Mgmt
    Education-for-lifer with a raging travel bug. Been to 50 countries and every continent but one (will let you guess which)

    Did you know that every time a kid misses a day of school, the school loses almost $60? In California (and most other states), schools receive state funding based on attendance, so all those absences sure add up. This and dozens of other factors affect the financing of public schools, and it takes some financial wizardry to keep the books balanced. Even small miscalculations can result in layoffs or schools closing. Now imagine yourself as an education entrepreneur who wants to open a new charter school (i.e., a school that is publicly financed but privately run). You’re passionate about education, but probably less so about cash flow modeling and factoring accounts receivable. That’s where EdTec comes in. They are charter school finance gurus, who provide school leaders with expert financial planning, budgeting, payroll, and accounting services. Kelly Hoppe, Director of Client Management, is searching for someone passionate about education and nerdy about spreadsheets to join the client management team as a School Finance Analyst. In this role, you’ll interact directly with school leaders, helping them to understand their budgets and make decisions accordingly. It’s a great opportunity to have direct impact on school growth and operations, while learning a ton about both school funding and finance more generally.

    Hank Pham
    VP of Engineering
    With 12+ years at PayPal, Hank knows a thing or two about payments. Down-to-earth, no-frills, and serious about rock-solid engineering

    Finix is a company you’ve never heard of that is revolutionizing payments in a very "un-Stripe like way". Today's providers give you seamless interfaces and effortless onboarding, but at scale sharing a percentage of your processing volume is just too expensive. Finix provides best-in-class payments infrastructure that allows big companies to own, manage and monetize their own payments stack. All those pennies add up to big $ (just ask Scrooge McDuck!). Hank Pham, their VP of Engineering, is hiring a front-end engineer for the “face” of the product: the Management Dashboard that their customers use to manage their entire payment workflows, reporting, analytics and dispute resolutions. ReactJS experience (or similar) required.

    A regular on the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast. Ex-NYTimes. Started his journalism career as a clerk at The New York.

    To be or not to be, that is the question for the Oxford comma (if you have to look it up read no further). According to FiveThirtyEight's own survey of 1,129 Americans, the "pro-Oxford partisans" outnumber the "opponents of it's tyranny" by a commanding 57%-43% margin. Guess that makes this writer a winner, even though the Associated Press would disagree. Micah is hiring a Copy Chief for FiveThirtyEight, a.k.a. Nate Silver's website, a.k.a. the place that made polling nerds cool. This is a new role, and main responsibilities include working with story & graphics editors to schedule articles, managing the copy desk, and copy editing and fact-checking articles (woot!). Passionate opinion about the oxford comma is a must.

    Analytical and results-oriented product leader. Passionate about good food, craft beer, and spicy chips.

    Running a restaurant is no picnic. You have to worry about the quality of your ingredients, cash flow, health inspectors and even the weather. But arguably the biggest nightmare is staffing. Not just finding good people in the first place, but figuring out what to do when the dishwasher, the line cook, and the hostess all call in sick on your busiest night of the week. You could spend hours on the phone looking for someone, or with a few quick taps on Instawork, book a vetted, qualified staffer instantly. They call it the “Uber for Staffing”, and it works like a charm. They’ve launched in the biggest cities in the US, and are quickly expanding nationally, with aims to go global quickly. The company is backed by some of the best investors in tech, including Bill Gurley at Benchmark, and they’re poised for continued rapid growth. Derek Nordquist, the Head of Product at Instawork, is looking for a lead product designer who’s highly empathetic, passionate about helping others, and effective across the full range of product design functions (from research to pixel-perfect mockups).

You’ll also mentor our existing team of 2 talented product designers and implement the design tools and processes needed to build the foundation of a high functioning, global design team.

    You’ve heard that song 100 times, but you probably don't know who "me" is. The 7th-inning stretch staple was originally a Tin Pan Alley tune penned in 1908. In the original lyrics, a young man is asking a girl, Katie Casey, if she'd like to go to a show. She turns him down, and tells him: "I'll tell you what you can do. Take me out to the ballgame...". If Gametime had been around back then, that poor young lad could have whipped out his phone and bought those tickets on the spot. Founded in 2012, Gametime's mission is to make it fast and easy to buy (and use!) tickets on the go. 6 years later, Gametime has become the fastest growing ticketing company ever, with tickets currently available to over 25,000 sports events, concerts, and shows nation wide. Michael Kunde, Gametime's CFO, is looking for a Head of Operations and Customer Support. In this role, you'll be in charge of Fan Happiness, and you'll lead major operational initiatives that increase customer satisfaction, drive higher revenue, and lower costs. Did we mention the monthly ticket credits benefit ($1,200/yr)?

    Close your eyes and imagine a bank. Imagine the imposing stone columns, the thick vault door locked with that giant ship's wheel. Now imagine the paperwork and bureaucracy required to open an account there. The future of banking, investing, and payments is being re-invented at this very moment, but that innovation is slowed dramatically by the opaque, and not particularly technology-friendly, world of banking. Griffin is changing that - they are lowering barriers to entry for FinTechs by building a fully-regulated, API-first bank. Their API encapsulates the bureaucracy of banking and makes it dead-simple for FinTech companies to create bank accounts for their users and transfer money. All while protecting that money fervently. In classical mythology, griffins were known for guarding treasures and priceless possessions. The team at Griffin knows the importance of keeping the money entrusted to them safe, so they build everything with security in mind first. Allen Rohner is the CTO at Griffin and the former founder of CircleCI. He is looking for a backend engineer with Clojure experience- one of the first three tech hires!- to help build out this vision. The company is based in London, and the role is local/remote (UK) or remote (US/EU, with an eye to relocation).

    In the Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy’s house first starts spinning into the air, her terror is palpable. How would her family pay for all those repairs? Fortunately, her story was just a dream and homeowners insurance was introduced in the US 10 years later. Generations of tornado, hurricane, flood, and wildfire victims have thanked the heavens for it ever since. Unfortunately, the process for getting homeowners insurance has pretty much stayed the same since then, with high prices, complicated applications, and long wait times. The founders at Kin dreamed up an alternative: Go online. Type in your address. Get a quote tailored to your home and its unique characteristics. Sounds simple, but there is hard core data crunching underlying their risk models, and the results are lower prices and more satisfied customers (check out their 5-star rating on Trust Pilot). Jamie is looking for a growth-wired marketing pro to lead the company's marketing team as it expands its reach to homeowners nationally. Prepare to geek out about insurance, eat delicious monthly breakfasts prepared by the founders, and have meetings in "Accidental Death and Dismemberment" (all their conference rooms are named after insurance terms).

    Everyone knows the story of Moses, Mt. Sinai, and the 10 commandments. What most people don't know is that there was actually an 11th commandment. It didn't quite make the cut because the stone tablets were too small. We've lost the exact wording, but the basic gist was "Thou shalt not destroy this beautiful planet I gave you". SINAI is working to rectify that by engaging companies and governments with technology that enables them to include carbon analysis in their entire operations globally. Alain is hiring a remote frontend software engineer to lead the development of their first product, an Internal Carbon Pricing SaaS platform for enterprise. The platform is already under construction and being built on a React/Node.js stack with GraphQL. UX chops and D3.js experience are a bonus. Passion for coding a must.
