Software Engineer (JS/React)

Posted a year ago

Built, a fintech company, is building a services team to support our applications and global customers in a collaborative environment, with high-quality code bases and empowered decision making.


Built Technologies is one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in Nashville. Recently named one of the 10 best tech startups in the area, we are experiencing a period of tremendous growth and have more than doubled in size and tripled our client base since January 2017. We founded Built to simplify the way capital moves into the construction industry. In 2019, we completed a Series B financing round of $31 million led by Goldman Sachs Investment Partners and a handful of investors including Regions Financial, bringing our total funding to $55 million. This enables us to capitalize on growth, team development, and bolstering investments in data utilization.

Built is on a mission to simplify residential and commercial construction lending. Since day one, our goal has been to create the best way to access and manage construction capital. Our vision is to create the industry standard for construction lending software; built to streamline the loan management process and provide unprecedented portfolio insights. We strive to empower lenders, borrowers, builders, and others with innovative technologies, changing the way the world gets built.

One of Built’s areas of focus is continuing to provide the security, integrity, and auditability our customers deserve in an ever-changing landscape of use cases and needs. Increasingly, Built’s customers and partners leverage public APIs to provide programmatic access to our systems. In addition to outward facing needs, our internal systems are maturing and breaking into scalable services designed to be used in a composable fashion to deliver different product offerings to our customers. The two initial areas of this work are advanced feature management and notifications.

As a Software Enginer at Built, you will help:

  • Ship features with high quality and integrity
  • Participate in architectural and design conversations
  • Encourage and build up your teammates

Success in this role is measured by:

  • Delivering the right solution at the right time with integrity.
  • Confronting and tackling odd, unique problems on a regular basis that arise in an industry not fully leveraging technology
  • Participating in delivering solutions that scale using strong architectural patterns and approaches
  • Communicating and collaborating with both technical and non-technical team members to arrive at negotiated decisions.

The Platform:

  • This team builds with JavaScript, Python, Docker, and several AWS services. (We have existing systems that also leverage PHP.)
  • This position focuses on the front-end JS/React user interface and GraphQL.
  • We care a lot about quality and safety in our codebase.
  • Test coverage targets over 90%, and eslint being clean.

The Team:

  • A Principal engineer who helps ensure we’re doing the right work with quality, leveraging the proper tools and advancing as a team.
  • Three senior engineers who help lead the team toward solutions and ensure that we maintain consistent quality.
  • Two talented engineers who assist in decision making and shipping features for customers multiple times a week.

What we need you to bring:

  • Javascript and React experience, and ideally, some GraphQL experience.
  • Experience with one of the popular JS test frameworks (jest, mocha, jasmine, cucumber)
  • While you’ll be focused on the front-end, a strong desire to work collaboratively with teammates focused on other layers to help deliver full features.
  • Working knowledge of AWS services for building and deploying scalable systems, messaging, persistence, and compute.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • A strong focus on our customers both internal and external.
  • A dedication to the quality and ownership of your work product.
  • Deep empathy and support of your teammates.
