Treecard · Remote (USA)
Treecard is building the leading green finance ecosystem. We’re powered by Ecosia, the search engine that has planted trees over 125M trees to date and have over 30M monthly active users.
We are founded on the pledge to direct 80% of all profits to reforestation projects and sustainable investments and are on a mission to plant 1 billion trees by 2026. We have raised $5.1m to date and have built a waiting list of over 160,000 people, with 40% of all sign ups being referred by a friend or family. We signed up over 100,000 users to our waiting list in the first month of our announcement (breaking all of Revolut, Monzo and Curve's launch records).
Our first product is a wooden debit card that plants free trees as you spend. We plan to launch our card program in late Summer 2021. Beyond that, we look to build out a suite of green financial services that put profits to work to protect and restore the planet.
We are looking for an engineer to help us build out the backend that powers TreeCard.
You will be responsible for developing the backend platform from scratch, spanning a range of the tech stack, from integrating with our banking partners, to API architecture and design for our mobile client, to the execution of new microservices that the business will depend on like risk management, fraud detection, and big data analytics.
You will be delivering a product that will become a core part of our customer’s financial lives, and used daily by hundreds of thousands of these customers. As one of the earliest employees, you will have a huge amount of responsibility over the product and company, and will be given the opportunity to hire out a team to support you as TreeCard grows.
