About the role

A new world order of independents and creators is taking hold. More than 60M Americans are working freelance, part-time, contract, or gig jobs in an explosion of entrepreneurial opportunity. Unfortunately, our benefits have historically depended on us being tied to a single employer. For tens of millions of people, figuring out taxes, retirement, and health insurance has been near impossible.

Until Catch.

Catch is the first portable benefits platform. In an easy to use app, independents can manage their own personal payroll and benefits automatically taking care of taxes, investing for retirement, and enrolling in health insurance. We do the hard stuff so that our customers can focus on what they do best: hustling, creating, building, and living their lives.

You have:

  • 3+ years of software development experience
  • Natural curiosity
  • Desire to find flaws in a system with many moving parts and take whatever steps are necessary to fix them
  • Previous experience working on a consumer product at a venture-backed company
  • Desire to perform and grow as an engineer
  • Technical initiative and leadership on previous projects
  • Empathy for customers who use our products

The stack:

  • Mongo, Postgres
  • Python, Go, GraphQL, gRPC
  • Sentry, Segment, Mixpanel

Working at Catch

Catch is a Series A stage startup. That means we're at the beginning of our journey to create a world where your safety net doesn't depend on your employment status.

This is the time to build the future we want to exist. To do that, we have assembled a team that's focused, inclusive, and ego-free. We're looking for people who are up for an adventure.

Catch is a YCombinator company and has raised $20M from some of the best investors and advisors in the industry including Crosslink Capital, Khosla Ventures, Nyca Partners, and Kindred Ventures. We're also backed by founders of Nerdwallet, Earnest, Enigma, Tagomi, and Tilde as well as executives and leaders from Apple, Public, Intuit, Harvard, Stanford, and Yale.

Benefits

We think benefits are important. So we've invested in making ours great:

  • Competitive salary and equity
  • Medical, dental, & vision insurance
  • Life insurance and disability benefits
  • 401k w/matching
  • Apple equipment
  • Commuter subsidies
  • Flexible time off

Must be authorized to work in the U.S. COVID-19 vaccination required.

Why you should join Catch

Catch is building the future of financial infrastructure for the independent workforce. As the first personal, portable benefits platforms, we help freelancers, contractors, and gig workers build an automated safety net. We do tax withholding, retirement investment, and health insurance enrollment. We move money, create investments, and integrate with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to be able to take action for those with volatile income. We believe the future of work mandates a new system to manage benefits, and the 80M Americans who lack employer plans certainly agree.
