The Role

We’re building Colossus to make it the best resource for consuming ultra-high quality business and investing content.

This role will help us build out a beautiful UI and intuitive user experience to allow our audience to be immersed in our great content. You will be the owner of the customer-facing web application to help our audience learn as quickly and seamlessly as possible as well as building internal tools for our hosts to make the best content possible.

What We're Looking For:
  • Proven experience shipping production quality UI applications built with modern frameworks, industry best practices, and open source software. Bonus points if you’ve contributed to any open source projects.
  • A deep, masterful understanding of the internet and HTTP, Javascript, HTML, CSS, Webpack, NPM, and Github with a track record to prove it.
  • Your skills aren’t limited to front end only - you have experience writing and maintaining APIs written in Java/Spring and strong SQL fundamentals.
  • The ability to have empathy for our users and craft a beautiful user experience in line with our customers expectations.
  • You have a relentless appetite for solving problems outside of your comfort zone.
  • You are honest, competitive, and you like to win.
  • You will raise the bar for our team and make us all better.
  • Bonus - You are an avid fan of Invest Like the Best.

What you get in return:
  • Opportunity to leave your mark on millions of our listeners
  • Ability to shape the direction of a company and our product with really big ambitions
  • Joining a very small team of people that are continually trying to learn and improve
  • Competitive salary and equity in the business
  • High quality healthcare, dental, vision, 401k benefits
