About LegUp
Every year, millions of families are forced to make career sacrifices or leave the workforce altogether because of inaccessibility to child care. COVID has made these numbers even worse.

Finding child care is tough, but many parents don't realize it until it's too late. Families will spend weeks looking for the right programs for their families, then sit on waitlists for an average of 18 months.

Why? Because child care providers, primarily women and PoC business owners, are so busy caring and educating children, it's hard for them to manage operations at the same time. So we built technology to help make the child care enrollment process easier, keep families in the workforce, and keep small business owners in business.

We're a team of parents, child care advocates, technologists, and doers who are passionate about creating a better child care search and enrollment process — and we're looking for people to join our mission.


About the Role
At LegUp, we're building a SaaS-enabled marketplace that helps child care programs and parents connect in a seamless way. We recently launched our platform, and providers are ecstatic about the ease of use it brings to their operations. We have a backlog of providers ready to sign up, and are hiring to help take our solution to the next level.

We’re looking for a senior full-stack engineer to join our team. We’re a small group (2 Engineers, including CTO), so we’re looking for someone who can be a leader within the team and help with all pieces of the equation. From front-end work to back-end database changes. CSS changes to meet design guidelines to code to manage our workflow processes. Admin tool work to partner integrations.

We need a rare breed who is a doer and a leader. Someone who is ready to dive in and code, able to learn and adopt new technology in a self-paced manner, and is comfortable with ambiguity and the fast-paced world of startups. Someone who wants to roll up their sleeves and solve any problem that comes their way, but can also work with more junior engineers to guide them in helping with pieces of larger projects. We want someone who has high standards of coding quality and integrity, but at the same time is passionate about our business and our mission and wants to build what’s right for working families and care providers.

As for the technology stack; we’re building in AWS leveraging Aurora Postgres, API Gateway backed Lambda functions (primarily written in Node.js), and Next React-Redux with Material UI on the front end. Candidates must be open (and eager!) to try new technologies to build a robust, scalable architecture.


You may be a good fit if you have...

    7 or more years of professional software development experience, including at least 3 years experience in front-end Javascript frameworks (preferably React) and 3 years in back-end work including Postgres (or other SQL) and AWS cloud experiencePrior startup experience - working within a team of fewer than 10 engineersExperience working with and mentoring junior engineers on a large, collaborative projectDemonstrated customer empathy - whether through direct product design experience or external customer engagementsFlexibility - we’re evolving at a rapid pace and things change around here fast!Authorized to work in the US - we cannot sponsor work visas

We're an equal opportunity employer that values diversity, equity and inclusion and we’re proud to have a team that varies in identity and holds the same values. We strive to be the place where a diverse mix of talented people want to come, stay, grow, and do their best work.


    Why Work Here?
    Diverse team, good benefits, lots of role ownership and equity, and room for growth!
