We’re working with a new york based company that issues credit to retailers to help them purchase wholesale inventory from brands on their platform. They could use some help leading up to the end of the year pushing out features and improving reliability.

They’re looking for a react engineer who’s comfortable enough on the backend to make small changes to endpoints or models as needed. You’d be working on a team with 5 other engineers, most of whom are backend focused full stack folks.
