About Us

We're building software to help public servants in county governments save time and money by using AI to streamline processing of real estate sales. This matters because property taxes drive local government revenues and support the services that power society.

We are actively looking for a front-end engineering teammate who is excited about designing and creating products and architectures that are intuitive and effective. Our mission is to bring the best technology to governments so that they can work at the speed of Silicon Valley.

The Role

This is a full-time fully-remote opportunity to join a YC-backed startup founded by Stanford grads. As we are building multiple products from scratch, we need a teammate that can handle multiple priorities in a fast-paced environment, working on a complex code base. You will be responsible for building the front end features that our customers interact with and maintaining a library of reusable and configurable components to enable our customers to construct unique and complex workflows. A successful candidate should be able to own their work from start to finish and make quick, effective decisions in the face of ambiguity in order to be an impactful team player. We value empathy and clear communication in everything we do and expect you to ask questions, challenge assumptions, and provide thoughtful feedback to influence the team in a positive way.

Responsibilities

  • Work with Product Managers, Leads and Engineers to identify technical requirements
  • Provide clear specifications to the development team, and manage expectations for deliverables
  • Write code that meets the product requirements and team standards for best practices
  • Test your code with an understanding of its requirements and edge cases
  • Review teammates’ code with thoughtful and empathetic feedback
  • Write technical documentation for product features and team processes
  • Respond to unexpected blockers and changing priorities, with a growth mindset
  • Partner with Product, QA, Back End, and Technical Configuration Specialist teams to achieve success from planning to delivery

The role is a good fit if you can:

  • Be comfortable with ambiguity and thrive in it
  • Take on meaningful product challenges, understand their core aspects, consider the benefits and tradeoffs of potential solutions, and provide practical solutions at the speed required to keep the project moving forward
  • Contribute to team culture and shape structure as the company grows
  • Ask questions and continually strive to improve yourself 
  • Think logically and abstractly with a keen attention to detail
  • Meaningfully take part in discussions to challenge assumptions and reach consensus

Need to Have

 

  • Experience leading a technical team, with a background in software development
  • Demonstrated history of accountability for technical projects, delivering updates to stakeholders
  • A strong foundation in HTML and CSS
  • Expertise in React and Javascript
  • Good understanding of industry standards and best practices
  • Knowledge on how to integrate web applications with Restful API’s
  • Experience leading Agile/Scrum teams
  • Exceptional analytical learning skills
  • Ability to learn quickly and integrate new tools/libraries with ease
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work with different stakeholders effectively
  • Practical experience managing version control with Git

Nice to Have

  • Startup work experience, ideally at a product-focused software company
  • Experience in multiple front end frameworks: Angular, Next.js, Remix, Vue, and others
  • Knowledge of React Testing Library, Redux, Styled Components, or TypeScript
  • Knowledge of web accessibility standards
  • Understanding of SOLID and other principles of software design
  • Backend or Full Stack Experience
  • Experience configuring build and deployment tools for single page applications

Our Culture

We are passionate about building a diverse and inclusive environment. We are looking for teammates who care about encouraging different points of view, engaging in healthy debate, and want to work on the hard skills of practicing inclusion on a daily basis.

Why you should join Just Appraised

Our goal is to empower local government employees with the tools, technology, and support they need so they can deliver exceptional service to their taxpayers and feel proud of the work they do for their communities. We contribute by building software to streamline local government tax assessors’ workflows using AI. Specifically, we streamline the change of ownership process for real estate and create more seamless ways for tax offices to communicate digitally with their taxpayers.

For instance, when properties get bought and sold, local governments have to process reams of paper in order to update their systems and perform the analyses necessary to update the tax roll. Our software makes this process 10x faster and much more enjoyable for employees in the tax office to complete, and creates trust and goodwill in the minds of taxpayers.
