About the role

Catch has built the first portable benefits platform offering tax withholding, retirement, and health insurance for those without access to employer-sponsored benefits. More than 57M Americans work freelance, part-time, contract, or non-traditional jobs that make it difficult to build wealth and protect against emergency.

Our tech-first approach makes it easy to create an automated paycheck setting aside for savings, investing for the future, and managing health insurance no matter how many different income sources exist, or how frequently income is received. We serve people — not businesses — and arm them with the ability to build a custom and flexible safety net for their family.

Join the Catch frontend team and build innovative cross-platform interfaces that connect people with the most important thing to get right– their safety net. We’re looking for driven and mission-forward engineers to help us reimagine the tax, retirement, and health insurance systems in the U.S. to be simple, modern, and integrated.

You'll work on:

  • Building new features and offerings for the family of Catch apps
  • Leveraging (and contributing to) our innovative cross-platform codebase to create intuitive, responsive, and performant apps for web, iOS, and Android.
  • Collaborating with the design team to deliver smooth, pixel-perfect interfaces
  • Collaborating with the backend team to use and refine the graphQL schema and API

We're looking for someone who has:

  • Experience building with React, React Native, TypeScript, and GraphQL
  • Experience working closely with a design team and/or specifications delivered in Figma
  • Experience voicing customer feedback into product solutions (engineering makes substantive contributions to product definition)
  • A demonstrated ability to maintaining high bar for quality of code and quality of user experience
  • An ability to think through requirements to come up with high-impact ways of quickly solving problems

The tech stack:

  • React
  • React Native
  • TypeScript
  • GraphQL (via Apollo Client)

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.
