Wizebank has built the industry’s first “Learn Now, Pay Later” solution specifically designed to help world-class course creators, educators, and coaches sell more effectively. We’re trusted by our partners to drive meaningful improvements in their business, and we work tirelessly to do just that.

We're backed by Rhino Ventures, Panache Ventures, and industry leaders like Greg Smith (CEO, Thinkific), Tim Vipond (Founder, Corporate Finance Institute), Andrew Wilkinson (Co-Founder, Tiny), and Pat Flynn (Founder, Smart Passive Income).

Role Overview 🚀

Wizebank is looking for a talented full-stack developer to help us build best-in-class software and financial tools that help online education businesses better manage and grow their education empires. As one of our early engineering hires, you will have the opportunity to take complete, end-to-end ownership of projects across the entire stack and play a critical role in shaping our future products, processes and infrastructure. 

What you’ll do?
  • You’ll work with a small engineering team to build mission-critical tools for course creators.
  • As one of our early engineers, you’ll have the opportunity to build entirely new products from scratch and make important technical decisions.
  • You’ll be responsible for planning, organizing and executing entire projects end to end, from idea to launch.
  • You’ll help build the foundation for Wizebank’s engineering standards, tooling, and processes.

About You 🎯

  • You are comfortable with the ambiguity of an early-stage company. This includes being able to transform product sketches into working technology as well as working in an environment with a fast-paced delivery schedule.
  • Interested in our core domain - helping solopreneurs succeed by building valuable financial and software tools.
  • You understand the importance of both speed and quality, and the trade-offs of choosing one over the other.
  • You have a positive attitude, with high integrity and low ego.

  • 3+ years of professional software experience building full-stack web applications with technologies like (but not limited to) TypeScript, Vue and Node
  • Experience with services such as: Heroku, Digital Ocean, and AWS
  • Experience with testing frameworks such as: Jest, Mocha, or Chai
  • Experience with REST API Design
  • Experience with relational databases and comfortable writing raw SQL. We use PostgresSQL.

Our tech stack is compromised of TypeScript on both the front and back-end (Vue JS and Express JS), with PostgreSQL, AWS/Heroku for infrastructure, and Jest and Sinon for testing.

On the front-end we use HTML and SASS; leveraging Tailwind CSS and our in-house built component library (Tasty Bistro) to create a style system that serves four different micro-frontends scoped by business stakeholders.

We're looking for someone with 3+ years of experience building full-stack applications, who has applicable knowledge with TypeScript/JavaScript, building REST APIs in Node, and using a modern web framework such as: Angular, React, Vue, etc. Working knowledge of SQL, and experience with relational databases.

Traits we value:

  • A knack for writing clear and maintainable code.
  • Considers the pull between readability and playing code golf.
  • Thinks about systems with clear folder structures and scoping in mind, and cares about leaving the code they touch in a better place for their team.
  • Cares about the product, the final user experience, and brings this mentality across the stack.
  • Problem solvers and thinkers who speak up about purpose and value of features and decisions; engaging in questions and discussions, pushing themselves and those around them for the best outcomes for all.
