Flux #13 - Create With Us

Expression that flows

Eric here. Hope everyone’s having a great start to the New Year. Here are some important things we’re hoping this community can help out with moving into 2019.

First and foremost, we’re looking for two experienced developers (one mobile, one web) to join us. We want engineers who can lead our technical efforts, mentor new members moving forward, and lay a strong foundation for Junto to scale with minimal friction. If you happen to be a wizard at both web and mobile, let’s talk.

Below is a description of what we’re about, who we’re looking for, and what skillsets will make a strong case. If you feel called to apply or know someone who might be a good fit, then read on below and fill out this Typeform when you’re finished - https://junto.typeform.com/to/f6ef8n

// We are still in our early stages and won’t be able to pay you a full salary immediately. Rent, food and a monthly stipend will be taken care of. Salaries and benefits are not far out of sight.

Why Junto 

  • The work matters. 

  • This is an opportunity to facilitate a more open era of human connection, alleviate the consequences of existing social media platforms and enable authenticity and effective social coordination at a global scale.

  • Junto is more than a digital interface. We plan to continue holding space for people from all walks of life in the spirit of this project.

  • You’ll be joining a diverse, non-hierarchical and tight-knit team. We invite you to co-live and create with us.

  • We are a small team, so your contributions will have significant weight. This is a leadership position with large upside for growth.

  • We value radical transparency and difficult, but necessary conversations.

  • This is a startup, so long hours are to be expected. That being said, we make an effort to prioritize self-care and ensure balance.

High level

  • You feel a strong conviction to forward this cause.

  • You’re a team player who’s also comfortable in a self-directed role.

  • You are a student of your craft and pay relentless attention to detail.

  • You have a gift for simplifying and communicating technical details.

  • You believe less is more. You prefer elegant, minimalist solutions over unnecessarily rigid and complex architectures.

  • You’re interested in the potential of decentralization and are not afraid to work with new, cutting-edge technologies.

  • You measure twice and cut once. You care about doing things the right way, but know how to get things done in a timely manner.

  • You hold yourself and others around you accountable.

  • You see yourself as more than a software engineer. You want to be involved in a number of moving parts and are comfortable in a leadership position.

Lead Mobile Developer

  • You have experience building and shipping mobile, consumer-facing products.

  • You have an ability to work with design on UX/UI.

  • You are proficient in iOS, android or modern cross-platform frameworks like Flutter or React Native.

  • Experience or interest in learning Flutter is a plus.

  • Experience in both web and mobile development is even better news :)

  • You’re an interdisciplinary software engineer. You don’t confine yourself to mobile development and have an innate drive to explore new technologies.

Lead Web Developer

  • You have a mastery of the fundamentals (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, ES6+).

  • You are capable of building beautiful, responsive designs.

  • You have experience with Sass or are interested in learning it.

  • You have a strong grasp of modern frontend frameworks like Vue or React and state management libraries like Vuex or Redux (Vue/Vuex is a plus).

  • You’ve worked extensively with APIs.

  • You have experience building or are interested in the future of PWAs. 

  • You’re an interdisciplinary software engineer. You don’t confine yourself to web development and have an innate drive to explore new technologies.

If you’re interested in learning more, fill out this Typeform here. If you feel under-qualified, but know you want to contribute to this on a full time basis, do not hesitate to apply. If we feel you might be a good fit, I will reach out to you as next steps.

As always, take care and thanks for reading. A lot of exciting things coming soon :)

- Eric
