Area Startups Hiring Tech Talent

If you are reading this, I am utilizing this Medium post as a quickly and easy way for both me to collectively share various job postings from a few startups I am assisting, but also so a reader can easily access this via a Medium link, since not of all the jobs are currently available online.

I often do what I can to help spread the word on things like this and I encourage you to share the information as well, especially if you know someone who may be interested in the jobs.

The info below is summarized so more details can be found by connecting to the company (also look for hyperlinks to jobs and companies). With the positions below for these companies, I would say all may prefer the applicants to be from Fargo Moorhead or Grand Forks or North Dakota, but some are open to remote for the right hire.

STAXA newly founded fintech company whose mission is to empower individuals to align their financial lives, from investments to spending habits, with their personal values.
STAX is currently hiring a Backend Engineer. After sketching out a rough concept in excel macros and codifying that in jupyter notebooks, STAX is
ready to formalize a prototype consumer application. This prototype will be leveraged for fundraising and to gather feedback before going to market. You will collaborate closely with founders Josh and David to bring the prototype to life.
ABOUT YOU:
● 3+ years of software engineering experience
● Solid understanding of relational databases and transactions
● Familiarity with writing highly concurrent systems
● Good intuition for REST API design
BONUS POINTS:
● Experience with investment/financial account aggregation APIs (Plaid, Yodlee)

● Experience building and deploying secure consumer apps
TECHNOLOGIES WE USE:

● ReactNative
● PostgreSQL
● ElasticSearch
● HDFS
● Familiarity with a subset of the above will be helpful — able to train an otherwise qualified candidate.
ADDITIONAL NOTES & HOW TO APPLY:
This first engagement will be for 3 months, full time, starting as soon as we find the right person. To apply, please send your CV to Josh (j.owens@getstax.co ) and David ( d.haukaas@getstax.co )
