This is an opportunity to join a very well-funded venture capital start-up client of ours who working to deliver the first and only solution of its kind that will completely revolutionize the information and digital security landscape. Founded by a leadership team in 2020 who have a demonstrable track record of establishing and then growing companies who are now household names with billion dollar valuations, they are looking to rapidly expand their engineering and technical teams.


Successful candidates will be designing and building out and developing highly scalable and innovative services for both mobile and desktop applications to serve as the foundation for our client's core systems.

If you are driven, have succeeded working in past early-stage venture capital start-ups, and want to play a meaningful role in the next digital security innovation then this one is for you.


Candidates can also look forward to being rewarded for contributing to the company's success with a highly lucrative equity stake.



  • Functional programming experience - Haskell, Scala, Erlang, OCaml etc
  • Extensive experience with highly complex distributed systems, microservice architectures, and large-scale distributed databases (NoSQL or SQL)
  • Past experience working with well funded and rapidly expanding start-ups from initial stages and demonstrable examples of how you contributed meaningfully to their growth and success.


*Client is deliberately language/ technology agnostic in their hiring "We have and will continue to focus on hiring smart people who are capable of learning whatever technology is needed to deliver the best solution." We have been specifically instructed not to fixate on one language vs another and to evaluate candidates by their achievements and experience. For those this resonates with, I look forward to hearing from you*


Expediated interview timeline - 3 stage remote video interviews typically completed in under 1 business week.


These positions are Direct Hire Permanent Roles and will not be open to C2C Candidates. Our client is not able to provide sponsorship so applicants must be authorized to work within the US without requiring sponsorship now and in the future.
