Frontend Engineer - React Native (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. (referred to as client X below) "Client X is 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 Client X unique is that our platform offers solutions when individuals have no other option. Our goal is to make financial wellness accessible through education and to provide banking tools for 99% of the population. Because we see credit card debt as the most overwhelming and fastest-growing type of debt, we 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. We understand that everybody has a different financial situation and because of that, Client X 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, Client X seeks to change the way people overcome financial troubles in the form of debt. By helping Americans eliminate their debt, we can empower them to create educated financial choices and build the means to achieve their dreams."
