Junior Backend Software Engineer - Marketplace

Moment is a fast growing marketplace for creatives. Our platform handles millions of visitors and millions of dollars in transactions with a growing set of offerings (from physical to digital goods). Beyond the usual e-commerce features, we’re building a new platform that enables sellers (i.e. pro creators) to build their business on top of us. With offerings from physical gear, digital products, and courses we believe Moment will be THE Marketplace for the creative.

The Role

How We Work

Moment is a remote team, spread across the US. We've always been remote, which means we've built a culture around how to make you successful even when we only see each other in person three times a year.

What makes our remote first culture unique...

  • Ownership - not only does everyone receive equity in the company, but we empower everyone to take on more ownership within the company. You learn how to set goals, make decisions, and build a business.
  • Transparency - you know everything about the company from our north star direction to how much cash we have in the bank. The more you know the better your decisions are.
  • Schedule Control - the only rule we have is that you attend three week long off-sites every year. Otherwise you set your own team goals, manage your own time, and hold yourself accountable to your peers.
  • Parent Friendly - we have a growing number of parents at Moment. We've learned over the years how to raise our kids and still deliver our best work.

Compensation

Our compensation philosophy is unique. It's a transparent formula that pays you more (every four months) as you develop new skills. The faster you develop the more you make. Otherwise we keep compensation simple:

  • Equity in the company.
  • A competitive salary.
  • Comp review every four months.
  • Medical Insurance or $400 a month to do what you want.
  • Flexible schedule - work where and when you want.
  • Free gear and storewide discounts.
  • Annual equipment budget of $500 for your own equipment.
  • Company off-sites three times per year.
  • Unlimited vacation.
