Senior React Native Developer (Front End Dev for Client)

Kunai is a fast-growing digital agency of 120+ people specializing in fintech. Ours is a fully remote team driven by innovation and experimentation, spread across almost every single continent. Over the past decade, we've shipped over 150 products for clients that include Visa, the United Nations, Wells Fargo, Ernst & Young, and TOMS Shoes. Our founders built a previous agency (Monsoon) that was acquired by Capital One in 2015. ***This is NOT a position with Kunai - This is a Full-Time position with a Kunai client, a venture-backed, fully remote, and purpose-driven FinTech startup committed to changing the lives of Americans that are behind on their bills.*** What makes our client unique is that their platform offers solutions when individuals have no other option. Their goal is to make financial wellness accessible through education and to provide banking tools for 99% of the population. Because they see credit card debt as the most overwhelming and fastest-growing type of debt, they decided to tackle it first at no charge. The current system in place for people that are behind on their bills is antiquated and unfair — making the process psychologically and physiologically taxing for any person. Debt comes in many shapes, sizes, and forms. Our client understands that everybody has a different financial situation and because of that our client is building solutions tailored to each individual, as we grow and scale. Providing people with the information to achieve financial wellness while destigmatizing debt is what we are passionate about. Life is more than just paying your bills. Through collective bargaining, our client seeks to change how people overcome financial troubles in the form of debt. By helping Americans eliminate their debt, our client seeks to empower them to create educated financial choices and build the means to achieve their dreams.
