Promise

Frontend Architect

Full-Time in United States - Remote OK

We’re looking for a key frontend architect to help us build better products for governments and the people they serve.

Promise is a government payment platform built for the people. Each year, thousands of individuals face significant consequences for the failure to pay government debt. Promise has found that many want to pay but are blocked by a confusing and rigid system. We’re solving this problem with a more humane approach that leads to significantly higher payments. This means citizens pay off debt faster, consequences are reduced, and government is more efficient.

  • Take a data-driven approach to iterating on new features.
  • Write code designed to run in enterprise production systems for a long time.
  • Build on our existing technology stack while learning new technology and driving good technical decision-making.
