Who We Are
Summer's mission is to help the 45 million Americans burdened by student debt save time & money through smart, algorithm-based recommendations. Summer combines policy expertise & innovative technology to serve student loan borrowers across the country. Our founding team draws on years of experience in public policy, law, consumer finance, & engineering to tackle one of the greatest challenges of our generation.
We're registered as a public benefit corporation as part of our commitment to helping all borrowers improve their financial health through better repayment strategies. We recently raised our Series A & are backed by a team of world-class investors, including General Catalyst, NextView, Greycroft, Foundation Capital, Story Ventures, & QED Investors-and our first partner is Yale University.
We could spend paragraphs talking about coding requirements, algorithms, & data structures, but you know that already. There are plenty of companies in NYC where you can program all day every day-this is more than just Jira tickets & GitHub code reviews. Come take ownership as you deliver something that people truly need. As a Senior Front-End Engineer, you'll be an integral part of every aspect of the company-not just the code base but also in the product & the company culture.
Some of the responsibilities that you'll contribute to:
- Responsibility for entire portions of the product. We expect all our engineers to own certain areas of development & take pride in creating great software
- Helping build new products from the ground up while contributing to a shareable component base for application scalability
- Work directly with the product owner & designer in creating technical specifications
- Be a part of key team decisions for technology framework, language & architecture choices
- Continually iterate team processes for development to improve team efficiencies
We are seeking a teammate with 5+ years of front-end application, data, & platform engineering experience. We will be evaluating your track record of building & maintaining code in a production environment, as well as your experience architecting data models & scaling products at a software company. If you have relevant experience & are excited about fintech innovation at a company that's breaking down barriers to higher education, we'd love to chat!
