Frontend Engineer

Prague
Full-time

StockStory is a VC funded B2C SaaS platform that algorithmically generates articles providing general investment advice for retail stock investors. We help our users find great stock picks, do in-depth research, and stay up to date with companies they care about. Our product is powered by quant models tailored to retail investor needs, and the analysis results are automatically turned into actionable, full-feature narratives.

We have a distribution partnership with Apple and our analysis is now by default present in every iPhone in the US through the native Stocks app, alongside companies like Reuters, CNBC or The Street.

About the Role:

We’re looking for a full-time front-end focused engineer to help us push the product to a next level. Not only to deliver new features, but also to wow our customers with stunning visual quality, performance, reliability and overall user experience. The role is hybrid - onsite in Prague, Czech republic with combination of remote work. This is not a fully remote position.

What You Will Be Doing

  • Lead front-end related initiatives from design to production

  • Work closely with a designer on the graphical language of our app and transform it from sketches to reality

  • Write reusable, efficient and testable code

  • Improve tooling, automations and streamline the development process

  • Evaluate usage metrics, test hypotheses and plan enhancements to the product

  • Learn new technologies, programming and product development techniques

What we expect from you

  • Production experience with JavaScript / TypeScript and React

  • Strong understanding of asynchronous programming

  • Ability to deliver visually beautiful websites

  • Startup, ownership and growth-oriented mentality

What we will be thrilled to see (but it’s fine if we won’t)

  • Previous exposure to functional programming

  • Understanding of quirks of distributed systems

  • Interest in back-end or NLP development

  • Ability to deliver measurable SEO and to help us drive more organic traffic

What can you expect from us?

  • Your impact on the whole product and the company will be substantial. As one of the early hires you will get enough space to build incredible things.

  • You will have meaningful equity in the company and competitive pay.

  • You will work with colleagues in three different continents. We work mostly remote, however we like to meet in person. We grow our engineering team in Prague. Our offices are at Karlovo namesti.

  • We like functional programming. Our tech stack contains TypeScript, React, fp-ts, Node.js, Python, spaCy, PostgreSQL, GitHub, AWS, Terraform

  • We contribute to open source projects (fp-ts-graph library) and encourage our engineers to do so.

  • We are constantly discussing stock market development. It doesn’t matter if you have no previous exposure to trading. You can learn from investors with many years of experience.

  • We prefer excited fast learners with less experience over decades of experience and no drive. You will be working with a team that has previously built successful AI products in the finance and cybersecurity space.
