*What is Locasaur: *

Locasaur powers the future of the world's "local" business, with a relationship platform for operators and customers to intimately message and transact. For Mom and Pops, Locasaur gives the ability to scale those magical relationship-building moments that keep customers purchasing again and again. For customers like you, Locasaur gives a direct line to your favorite spots. We believe that getting personal is good business and envision a future where the experience of being a 'regular' at your favorite restaurants, retail stores, and services is just as rich digitally as it is in-person.

Over the course of the COVID19 pandemic, we've worked closely with a small group of businesses to hone our platform, as they've engaged with thousands of regulars. Now, we're hiring a full stack Lead Engineer to solidify and further develop our platform as we enter our next growth phase.

Your Role

At Locasaur you'll lead the development of the next generation of our mobile applications for customers and businesses, and help establish the engineering best practices and procedures that will form the foundation of our dev org as we grow.

We're looking for an engineer who can build from scratch, wear many hats, and wants to make a jump into a role that affords them all the responsibilities and opportunities that come with joining an early stage team. Ideal candidates are just as comfortable chasing down time-sensitive bugs as they are carrying out feature sprints, and they're excited to work closely with both non-technical team members and users to translate feedback into a product roadmap and execute on it.

If you’re a full-stack engineer who loves owning products from top to bottom and has been looking for an opportunity to have a large equity stake in a fast growing startup, let’s talk.

Great Candidates…

Have 3+ years of experience as a full stack software engineer. Bonus points if you’ve worked with the frameworks in our tech stack (see below).
Have experience building within cloud infrastructure platforms (AWS, GCP, Azure, Vercel, etc).
Are not afraid to speak their mind and embrace debate, critique, and question, as part of a healthy product-building process.
Want to work with a product that is a high-touch, integral part of its users' days.
Enjoy collaborating with different personalities and attacking challenges in a group setting.
Care about their favorite restaurants, shops, and service providers! They enjoy both being a regular, and finding new favorite spots to try.


Write easy-to-understand, maintainable code that can scale with the company.
Take ownership of real-time app maintenance and quality assurance for our businesses.
Help plan, execute, and release product iterations for both mobile- and web-based components.
Put into place best practices for scalable, agile development.

Locasaur is nominally based in NYC, but we're remote-friendly, with an eye towards re-establishing a dedicated workspace towards the middle of 2022, dependent on the COVID19 situation.

Aside from competitive pay we also offer:
Early Stage Equity
Unlimited Paid Time Off + Holidays
Health Insurance (including dental & vision)

Our Main / Current Techstack:
React Native w/ Expo
Integration with various APIs
