Wyndy began as a mobile app that makes it simple for parents to find, book, and pay vetted, background-checked college babysitters. We're now in over 20 markets and looking to go deeper in our existing markets and expand to more markets across the U.S. But we've always known that our technology and approach could serve a variety of industries. We've now expanded our product line to include Alysyn, an on-demand marketplace connecting dental practices to dental professionals for short-term work. We're looking for team members to help us scale Wyndy and Alysyn as well as identify additional opportunities in the "skills economy".

Tools we use:
While we've relied on quite a few frameworks, libraries, and APIs to get ourselves to this point, we're always exploring new ideas, strategies, and patterns to improve. That being said, we're looking for someone that is excited and capable to "hit the ground running" with our current stack:
React - We use React for much of our web front-end, as well as React Native for mobile. You should have a strong understanding of React concepts and be be able to build out intuitive user interfaces with it. Furthermore, you should be comfortable with advanced concepts such as custom hooks, routing, and portals.
GraphQL - While REST is great we believe GraphQL is the future of web APIs and have adopted it across our stack. You'll need to be comfortable developing and working with complex schemas, as well as utilizing tools such as Apollo to handle concerns such as pagination, caching, and refetching data.
Webpack - We tend to favor a "component-driven" approach to front-end development over the single page approach popularized in recent years. As such, you'll need to be comfortable working with advanced webpack configuration to keep builds small while working with a library of custom, home-grown components.
Ruby on Rails - You'll need to be incredibly comfortable working with complex Ruby on Rails codebases.
Stripe - We've processed millions of dollars in transactions on our platforms - you'll need to be experienced working with how to securely implement payment processing APIs and keep customer data safe.
