Participate in the evaluation and integration of new technologies as we scale our platform.

Qualifications:

Software engineering experience building web and mobile applications.

BS in Computer Science degree or equivalent theoretical background in software engineering.

Why you should join Pangea.app

Our mission is to create a community where students have equal access to opportunity and feel valued for their work.

By 2030, most of the US workforce will freelance. We enable students at the beginning of their work-life to start and grow their own freelance businesses while still in school

In the past 12 months, we've expanded to 600 colleges, helped students earn more than $350,000, and gotten accepted into Y Combinator.

We're building a network that empowers college talent to hone their skills without having to take on unpaid work, creating a platform they will use even after they graduate.
