Originate is passionate about innovation. We bring together exceptional engineers, product managers, and designers to create groundbreaking digital products for our partners.
We work in small, fast-paced, cross-functional agile teams to rapidly deliver product designs, prototypes, and production systems to market - and ultimately look to build an ongoing portfolio of products that we operate and evolve long-term.
Our Tech Environment
We try to stay technology agnostic and use the best tool for the job, but maintain a set of go-to technologies that have proven themselves.
New products are built using React and Redux bundled with Webpack. Our backends are primarily Scala, Node.js, Rails, and Go with Swagger to document the APIs. Mobile development is both iOS and Android.
Software is packaged with Docker and continuously deployed with CircleCI to AWS and/or DC/OS. We leverage open source components such as Cassandra, Spark, Kafka, and PostgresSQL for our data pipeline. Infrastructure is managed using Ansible and Terraform and is monitored with Datadog.
You’ll find individuals hacking with everything else (Haskell, Clojure, Elixir, Idris, etc...) and we’re always ready to use a new language or a new framework when it’s ready or when a project dictates.
What Makes Us Different
Our success is built upon our amazing team. You will work with smart, creative, and humble people that are passionate about creating products that meet customer needs and solving problems through collaboration and innovative thinking.
We employ the latest innovations in technology to solve challenging problems in a variety of industries. You will be tasked with learning new skill sets required for designing and building products in rapidly changing fields, such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Virtual Reality.
We value your passions and interests. At Originate, 20% of your company time you can work on your own side-project/startup no strings attached; read more here.
We believe in partnership and the power of shared outcomes. Through our Profit Sharing Program, you can share in 50% of Originate’s global profit.
We offer a flexible schedule and an open vacation policy.
We have a consistent and fair process for doing performance reviews and promotions, with a well-documented career ladder.
We’re mom, dad, and family-friendly - we like to see people in the office as much as possible, but we’re extremely flexible about working from home and taking time to manage family responsibilities.
We place a high value on an inclusive, diverse working environment - we have a “People @ Originate” group dedicated to brainstorming improvements and informing leadership around how we can continuously grow and improve.
