Full Stack Engineer

WHO ARE YOU?

Moonrise is seeking a Full Stack Engineer. In this role, you will be developing new features and maintaining functionality of our core product. You are a self-driven engineer that understands the technologies that power the web - from databases to web servers, client-side JavaScript to server-side APIs - you enjoy building it all! Additionally, you empathize with your users and can apply basic product design principles to your work. You enjoy working collaboratively across business units. You are passionate about helping underserved Americans that are living paycheck to paycheck. You are not afraid to constructively call out when things are not working right. You push back in an effective way that does not limit the team's creativity and also offer elegant ways to solve the problem at hand. You understand the trade-offs between moving fast and resilience and know when to lean more heavily towards one or the other. You enjoy working in a very ambiguous environment. You accept change and moving deadlines with ease and are okay jumping hurdles. Most of all, you love to help others!

WHO ARE WE?

Moonrise is a digital platform that matches financially challenged individuals in need of extra income with reputable companies in need of reliable workers to fill shifts. We are a social impact startup fully owned and supported by American Family Insurance. We were built with an ambitious goal: to innovate in a way that would help working families—many of them existing customers of The General, part of the American Family enterprise—that need a financial cushion in case of the unexpected. We traveled the country listening to financially vulnerable Americans and believe we can solve their deepest pain point – easy access to supplementary income.
