PostgreSQL Developer



Software Engineering
Austin, TX, USA
Posted on Friday, June 30, 2023

Salary: $125,000 - $200,000 a year

Eligible for $10k x $10k plan

We are looking for a savvy and seasoned PostgreSQL developer for an in-office team in Austin, Texas. This is a developer role, not a DB administrator role. We are sophisticated users of PostgreSQL, and we want you to school us in what we don't know.

The successful recruit will work hand in glove with the CTO on a growing technical team. The upside potential is extremely large for the right candidate in terms of both cash compensation and equity. This is no mere job. It requires a founder’s caring and curious mentality, and a burning desire to ship code to shape the future of decentralized finance.

Vertalo connects and enables the digital asset ecosystem. Our platform uses traditional database and blockchain technology to manage cap table data and bring secondary liquidity to investors in private securities. The private securities markets are huge yet antiquated. Vertalo is changing that landscape.

Think of a traditional cap table reimplemented for the emerging digital securities sector (meaning soon, all private securities). Our focus on digital securities and secondary liquidity sets us apart from larger incumbents. We are well positioned in this emerging market and offer amazing growth potential. There are extensive near-term opportunities and longer-term exit scenarios for our company.

You will be focusing primarily on the back-end of our application, rapidly deploying product that appeals to our market, then figuring out how to scale it.

This is not a remote position. You will be required to work out of our offices here in Austin, TX.
