Founding Software Engineer


RevvUp is building the future of car ownership with a D2C application that enables people to finally take back control of their finances. We are developing the first mobile app for car loan refinancing and a marketplace for trade-in of a car (think Kayak for instant car sale offers). People want ways to save every month and they often times don't know the best way to do this, which is where we come in.

Because each household will own nearly 19 cars during their lifetime, having a smart solution to manage the finances for these assets is critical. Unfortunately, that doesn't exist today. The tools and knowledge that people have today about car management is minimal and the $2T market is ripe for an overhaul. Problems with car often care create massive economic difficulties for people.

Our first product is helping people dramatically change the way they approach financing car repairs. The $380B+ market of auto service is ripe for an overhaul.

This is not your usual startup trying to solve Silicon Valley problems — we are focused on providing elegant solutions to the outdated and underserved auto market. Every car owner needs a far better solution to have a more positive experience.

What makes our approach different than others? Simple, we focus on bringing in the best people and supporting them to do their best work. That's it. In the technology space where most tools/infrastructure are easily accessible, it means that our edge is our people.

We’ve recently raised a pre-seed round from Crosslink Capital, a top tier investor behind companies like Chime, Casper, Pandora, and Postmates. Our leaders are seasoned veterans in scaling teams and we are ready to bring in the right people to build something amazing.

ABOUT the role

We're looking for an experienced full-stack engineer to help build the foundation of our product and early software team. This person will be a critical and influential team member, working directly with leadership to build an industry-changing solution unlike anything else on the market today.

Are you ready to redefine a category that impacts nearly every single person? We need a talented engineer to help build and architect how this gets done. On top of strong technical skills, we'll be looking for a great leader who is hungry to make an impact. You'll be responsible for everything car management - the main product of RevvUp's operation.

The Stack

It's early on so you will be responsible for some of the choices we make down the line (e.g. should we be adding Typescript? Great!). At the moment, our MVP is in:

  • ReactJS, Javascript, Python3
  • We run serverless and containers on AWS while accessing our serverless PostgreSQL.
  • We ship continuously - we test heavily with Jest, Cypress, and we deploy our site every time a pull request merges to master.

The Compensation

  • Equity - 0.5% - 1.5%
  • Cash - $120k - $160k
  • Healthcare - medical, dental, and vision policies.
  • Time off - flexible vacation policy to encourage people to get out and see the world.
  • Goodies - a new MacBook Pro and whatever hardware and software you need to get the job done.
  • Learning - learning and development opportunities for you to grow your skills and career (e.g. iOS courses in Udemy, O'Reilly books on React).
  • Seat at the table - come to work every day knowing your efforts will have a material impact in shaping the direction of the company.

We’re an equal opportunity employer (EOE).

Diversity at Revv Up means building a team that is rich across all boundaries of race, ethnicity, gender identification, sexual orientation, disability, religion, age and thinking style. We welcome all backgrounds, life experiences, and worldviews as this is the catalyst for the rapid evolution of our product and our organization. Diversity allows us to tackle new challenges, embrace change, make well-informed decisions, and ultimately work in a place that is representative of the world we live in.


What makes the ideal candidate tick?

  • Passionate - Cares deeply about their work and its impact. Passion is energizing and infectious... when we want to motivate each other to do our best work, it starts with passion.
  • Independence - Understanding how to operate in ambiguity and bring projects from start to completion without technical hand holding.
  • Fearlessly Curious - Asking "what if" instead of "what exists" yields much more interesting products: Pinterest, Tumbler, Velcro.
  • Growth mindset - Being okay with not knowing something — we can learn, change, and adapt to new information. No one is perfect and as we build this company we all need to learn and grow together.
  • Humbly talented - We're not just looking for smart people. You bring everyone else up with you — you quickly realize when you’re wrong, and you do it without an ego.
  • Embrace failure - Knowing what doesn't work is just as important as what does. The quicker we learn what does and doesn't work, the quicker we build amazing products.

The Skills

You will spearhead RevvUp's operations management software with the CTO and steer the product direction with the founding team. We encourage any candidate who meets 70% of these qualifications to still apply!

  • 2-4+ years of Full-Stack software development experience - we judge by work not time (e.g. ReactJS, Node, Python, Java).
  • Experience with:
    • Web modern frameworks (React, Vue, Angular, etc).
    • Taking features + products from scratch to delivery.
    • Building end-to-end solutions that include front-end and back-end work.
