About MotoRefi:

At MotoRefi, we’re on a mission to save car owners $100/month or more with our seamless marketplace and technology platform. Our customers love us (our NPS is 81!), we grew revenue over 5x last year, and team members tell us MotoRefi is a great place to work (read our Glassdoor reviews!). MotoRefi is proud to be backed by a great team of venture and angel investors, including Goldman Sachs, IA Capital Group, Motley Fool Ventures, Moderne Ventures, Gaingels, QED Investors, Accomplice, Link Ventures, the former COO of Venmo, and others

About the Role:

MotoRefi is looking for a skilled Senior Full Stack Engineer to lead the engineering effort to deliver multiple solutions to the needs of internal stakeholders. The company’s rapid growth and expansion means that the tailor-made web applications need to be fault tolerant and highly available from the first deployment.

The backend that runs all of this is evolving toward an event-sourced architecture that supports the highly asynchronous and multi-modal workflows we are automating. The current stage provides a seasoned full-stack engineer with a healthy mix of familiar and novel challenges and a high degree of agency to solve them.

  • Build and maintain service layers (REST, GraphQL, etc) that will be interacted with by a variety of consuming applications
  • Leverage modern frameworks like React to build interactive web applications
  • Utilize a variety of databases for different use cases (e.g., relational, document, graph, object storage)
  • Partner closely with the Product Team to define feature specifications and build products
