We're building the financial OS for general contractors that helps them deliver quality work at scale. We enable them to win more jobs and grow efficiently by 1) standardizing a low down payment option, 2) providing affordable working capital access, and 3) removing any payment collections from the homeowner.
About the role
About the Role
You'll play a key role as an early member of Brick's engineering team, helping to build both product and engineering team practice and culture. This is currently an individual contributor role with the opportunity for growth.
What You'll Achieve
- You'll help establish the foundation for an early product, supporting the financial relationships between Contractors, Homeowners, and Brick.
- You'll work with others and independently to support building new product features from start to finish. For example, you might help build a tool for our Contractors to create Estimates for their jobs.
Skills and Toolsets You'll Need to Bring
Tooling Wizardry — You are familiar with a wide range of tools for supporting the forming practices of a growing engineering team. You have experience managing deployed applications on cloud infrastructure — AWS is a plus.
Patterns & Engineering Collaboration — You have early experience working in a growing engineering team and are eager to help craft patterns and practices as we form our team collaboration styles.
Engineering Contribution — You are eager to contribute to engineering product features in either the backend or frontend. You'll be comfortable participating in the engineering practices and processes you support.
Mindsets & Behaviors You'll Bring
Problem Solving & Organization of Mind — You seek to work through problems with a clear understanding of the context. You can decompose tricky problems and work towards a clean solution, independently or with teammates. You're comfortable asking for help when you get stuck.
Empathetic Communication — You communicate nuanced ideas clearly, whether you're explaining technical decisions in writing or brainstorming in real time. In disagreements, you engage thoughtfully with other perspectives and orient your perspective on curiosity and inclusion.
Not Ideological about Technology — To you, technologies and programming languages are about tradeoffs. You might form opinions, but you're not ideological and can learn new technologies as you go.
