We are looking for an experienced frontend engineer to join our web team to help us build the best cryptocurrency experience in the world. Web technology is core to our security model and business. By running code in a web process, we separate it from the cryptocurrency code for enhanced security. 

The BRD app has over 2 million downloads and is responsible for securing billions of USD worth of digital assets, and our goal is to handle billions more in transactions between the traditional financial systems and cryptocurrencies. We're hiring more frontend engineers to work towards our ambitious goals of revolutionizing finance.

What we're doing at BRD

BRD is at the heart of a financial revolution. We're building the missing piece of infrastructure that ties together the essential functionality of a bank, but where individuals retain complete control over their assets. As a financial infrastructure company, our mission is unlikely to ever be complete. We need continually strive to bring the power of our apps to new regions of the world, some of which have never had wide access to banking functionality.

Our approach to this problem heavily focuses on several core tenants. For one, we will never have direct control or visibility over customer funds. It is not our job to interfere in the personal financial lives of our customers. This is accomplished by using digital assets like Bitcoin, and a mobile app like ours which manages its assets on-device.

The second tenant of our approach is to provide integration with the traditional financial system. Regardless of the currency, people still need to get paid, pay their bills, pay for goods at merchants, and send money to their family and friends. We are building infrastructure that integrates with local financial businesses that tie in with local currencies and adhere to local laws.

Finally, we need to fight for a quality consumer experience. This is why we try to retain control over every moment of our customer's interaction with our products. We relentlessly design, redesign, test, and experiment to ensure our customers have a positive, safe experience.

What it's like to work here.

We've built a lively remote work culture that emphasizes regular personal interaction. At BRD, we started as a remote team and have built our workflows around it. This allows us to hire people who want to work with us, regardless of where they've decided to settle (or roam).

Work-life balance is important to everyone at BRD, and we strive to ensure everyone has enough time for family, exercise, and mental health. In our opinion, a happy and healthy team is an essential ingredient in finding creative solutions to the hard problems we're trying to solve.

We're more operationally transparent than you may be used to. The entire BRD team has access to a variety of dashboards that help our distributed team make better decisions. If you have a question that can't be answered by a dashboard or an easy query, let's see if we can fix that.

BRD is committed to building an actively inclusive work environment that makes our team an excellent home for everyone—regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, education, age, or other personal characteristics.

    An Insider's view of BRD

    How does your team reward individual success?

    We work hard to make the team feel like their hard work is noticed. We give out praise in our weekly all hands meetings, cash bonuses, and even some BRD tokens when the team goes above and beyond -which seems to be all the time these days!

    Adam

    VP of Engineering

    What does your typical day look like?

    We are big believers in individual responsibility, so my day may look different than your day. We have a daily standup, and a few additional standing meetings throughout the week. Other than that - we are all responsible for getting stuff done and helping our team mates. The breakdown of how you do that, is up to you.

    A drive to create. BRD is a team full of people who have a desire to create something valuable for the world, changing the way humans bank. We are strong believers in everyone knowing "why" and acting to the best ability to create the "how". In short - dreamers who relish doing.

    What is your vision for the company?

    We are building the world's first decentralized bank. It requires a massive transformational shift in the way people use, save, send, and receive value. Our vision is to have BRD on every mobile device. Financial freedom for anyone, regardless of where they live and who they are. We want to give them a chance at financial freedom.
