About FutureAdvisor: We’re an early stage and well-funded
technology startup focused on helping millions of people invest for their
retirement. We build amazingly smooth user experiences atop deep financial
research (together with PhDs in computational finance). We help everyday
investors avoid usurious fees, manage risk, and build the right personalized
portfolio for their future.
About you: You’re a brilliant engineer who loves to work on
challenging problems, on a small team, backed by the best investors and
advisors in the Valley. We work with Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, JQuery, with a
bit of Java on the side – but we firmly believe that great engineers can learn
these on the job. After all, our friend spent years creating world-class file
servers in C++ before joining us recently. You will be the second engineer
aside from the two founders (both technical). Did we mention we love small
You’ll learn how high-flying venture-backed technology startups work, from
the inside out. You’ll join us in investor meetings and make critical
architecture decisions from day one. Along the way you’ll pick up tons of
finance and math (we hope you like math).
What your (work) life will be like:
  • Meaningful equity and the leverage to actually
    increase the value of your shares. We’re an engineering team that fits around
    one table at lunch; your decisions and your work matter.
  • Competitive pay and health insurance
  • Gym membership and transit pass
  • Free snacks, drinks, and food in the office: we
    love AmazonFresh
  • Your own hardware budget: there’s no “standard
    issue machine”; buy or build your dream setup
  • Unlimited learning budget: whatever books,
    screencasts, and tools you need
  • Weekly team lunches, monthly outings such as
    whirly ball, and world class food just around the corner that people travel to
    Seattle to eat (such as Salumi).
  • Free house cleaning service for your home,
    because if you’d rather code than vacuum, that’s cool with us.
Location: Our offices in the historic Pioneer Square
neighborhood of downtown Seattle
