About the role

We deeply care about helping young people be financially independent and believe that financial freedom is a critical precursor for mental and physical health. We dream big and want to offer every person in the world access to the education they need to succeed in life. At Blair, you will work with an exceptional team on solving a fundamental societal problem.

The Role

We're looking for a full-stack engineer who can help us build the future of student financing. You will work on a variety of projects surrounding our platform. We build products that move lots of money and impact the lives of our users significantly. You will have a tremendous amount of influence on our product development and the ability to have a great impact on the future of student financing. As an essential team member, you will own dedicated projects and work closely with our CTO. There's no red tape. It's a small team, and we move fast.

Example Projects

  • Enhance our payment platform to service multi-million dollar transactions
  • Develop new features for our proprietary CRM to manage thousands of students
  • Generate complex financial reports by combining countless data points
  • Improve our self-service student flow and automate varying processes
  • Expand our partner dashboard providing real-time student data

What we are looking for

  • 3+ years of experience in Javascript, CSS, and experience with a framework like Vue or React. (We're building on Vue.js, you can check out our stack here: https://stackshare.io/blair/blair)
  • Ability to deliver results independently and to ask for the right resources if you get stuck
  • Understanding of accessibility, responsive design, and website performance
  • Ability to deal with the fast pace and ambiguity of a startup. Things change and sometimes you need to develop expertise as you go.
  • Previous startup experience is a plus but not strictly necessary

Why Blair

  • Ownership from day 1
  • Dynamic team and flat hierarchies
  • Tackling a major societal challenge for this generation and the next to come
  • Market-rate salaries and equity package
  • Option to work in New York or San Francisco for a limited period
  • Relocation assistance
  • $100 monthly wellness or fitness allowance
  • $500 annual learning or conference allowance
