Alt is on a mission to make investing in alternative assets as easy as investing in stocks. We are redefining alternative assets to include new asset classes that have historically been relegated to the territory of hobbyists and collectors, rather than investors. With Alt, we're turning sports cards – and eventually watches, sneakers, and art – into investable assets.
Our investors include VCs such as 776, First Round Capital, BoxGroup, SV Angel as well as notable angels such as the founders of Stripe, Blackrock and Coinbase. Some professional athletes, including Kevin Durant, Larry Fitzgerald, and Tobias Harris all across different sports have also invested in Alt.
What we are looking for:
As a senior frontend engineer at Alt, you will lead the architecture of our user facing web application. We have recently launched, our user base is growing rapidly, and we are looking for someone to level up our frontend engineering team help to build a world class alternative asset exchange that will be used by millions.
The impact you will make:
Research, scope, design, and implement new end-to-end functionality
Advocate for frontend best practices in the areas of performance, testing, and accessibility
Identify and resolve performance and scalability issues
Maintain and support our frontend build infrastructure
Perform detailed code reviews and provide technical mentorship to engineers
Work closely with designers and product managers to solve ambiguous user challenges
What you bring to the table:
5+ years of software engineering experience building consumer facing web applications
3+ years of experience working with React in a production environment
Expertise in web performance, frontend tooling, SEO, and accessibility
Strong understanding of computer science fundamentals
Ability to communicate and collaborate effectively in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment
Experience working with React, Typescript, Apollo Client, and GraphQL APIs
Experience working with Python is a plus
What you will get from us:
You will be given resources to help grow your personal brand and to position yourself as a thought leader in areas relevant to Alt.
Ground floor opportunity as an early member of the Alt team; you’ll directly shape the direction of our company. The opportunities for growth are truly limitless.
