What is G2i?

G2i is a hiring platform for engineers ran by engineers. We are an international collective of industry leaders, conference speakers, and subject matter experts within React, React Native and Node that are passionate about working remotely and doing good in the world.

We match technically vetted engineers to pre-vetted clients. Say goodbye to hunting business, drawing up contracts, and working on dying tech. With one production focused, to the point code challenge (no whiteboarding or algorithms + on your own time) vetted by our engineering team, you'll have the opportunity to receive curated contract opportunities as well as become a part of an international collective of experts. If that sounds up your alley or you would like to find out more, please feel free to reach out to dylan@g2i.co

G2i is short for "Good News to the Internet." We are convinced that our primary vision & mission are good news to companies that need to hire engineers. While we are going about fulfilling that primary vision & mission, we will also be good news to those in need. We are on a mission to help hundreds of street kids in Nairobi, Kenya obtain education, a safe home, parental care, and the love they need. We are also committed to supporting the open-source community by finding ways to financially support those who build the OSS we rely on.

Your background

In simple terms we want to hire an engineer that is excited about building applications in Node, is comfortable working in dynamic engineering environments and has strong communication and documentation skills. Here is what this actually means to us:

  • You have 3+ years of professional development experience and have at least 1 year of Node production experience.
  • You are willing to complete a code challenge that often takes 6-8 hours to complete (there are no due dates or timers however).
  • You live in North America or South America.
  • You are fluent in both verbal and written English and are comfortable communicating directly with technical and non-technical clients.
  • You are available 30-40 hours per week.
  • You might have full-stack experience with either Rails, React, React Native, Apollo Client/GraphQL, native Android (Java, Kotlin) or iOS (Objective C, Swift). But if you don't, that's OK too!
  • You have prior experience as a freelancer or are someone that enjoys having the freedom to choose the types of projects that best align with your interests.
  • You have prior experience working remotely or are excited about doing so.
  • You are flexible and can adjust to the working styles of different teams. Some teams may want to pair-program and have daily interaction others may want engineers to work independently and only interact a few hours per week.

Vetting - Developers and Clients

We match technically vetted engineers to pre-vetted clients who place a high value on engineering and focus on running healthy projects. We take care of contracts, billing, payments and all of the other work that goes into freelancing so that engineers can focus on code and clients on building their product. Our vision is for the hiring process to be simple, trustworthy and enjoyable for both companies and engineers.

When we vet clients we make sure they:

  • Prioritize communication
  • Plan appropriately and have realistic timelines
  • Understand the cost of healthy development and have a budget to pay for it

When we vet engineers we make sure:

  • Engineers vet other engineers
  • Our code challenges are to the point and based on production-level code, no whiteboarding
  • Our process is objective, repeatable and quantitively scored
  • Our process is completely transparent

Who you will work with

We only work with companies that value engineers and run healthy engineering teams. We regularly partner with Y Combinator funded product companies that place a high value on engineering. Some of the companies we have worked with are: Lattice, Major League Soccer, ZeeMee, Software Engineering Daily, and Truebill with new clients coming in weekly.

Diversity

G2i is an equal opportunity employer. We’re dedicated to building a team where diversity in both ideas and identities is not only welcomed, but encouraged. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law.

If you'd like to learn more or set up a no-commitment exploratory call, feel free to apply here or reach out to dylan@g2i.co. Thanks!

Developer support engineers help others integrate and build on Stripe – from developers integrating payments into their app for the first time, to engineers at popular technology companies building complex payment systems.

You’ll primarily communicate with external developers through email and IRC to solve problems, help Stripe users build cool things, and debug code of all kinds. You’ll also work with other internal engineering teams to identify bugs and find ways to help improve Stripe.

You will:

  • Work with external developers through email and chat to solve their technical integration problems
  • Maintain and contribute to the Stripe client libraries
  • Develop tooling, processes and documentation to enable the best possible developer support experience at scale
  • Work in partnership with the product and engineering teams at Stripe to define the future of the developer experience on the platform

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Proficiency in writing code in a few different languages (Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Java, Go, PHP, Objective-C, C#, Swift, Kotlin, etc) and enjoy learning new languages and technologies. We understand that languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • Worked with RESTful APIs, front-end frameworks such as React or AngularJS, or have experience as a mobile developer
  • A thoughtful, patient, and friendly communication style and enjoys writing
  • Prior experience as a software engineer or significant experience building web or mobile apps
  • The ability to work with a high degree of autonomy and limited supervision
  • An enjoyment of teaching or enabling other developers to be successful

We’re a small, highly distributed team and we’re looking for candidates who are able to learn quickly and think creatively. The ideal candidate would have a strong background working with some of the languages we interact with most often (Ruby, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Node.js, and Java) and have some interest in writing and communicating with technical and non-technical audiences alike.

You should include these in your application:

  • A list of languages you feel comfortable working with (both technical and human!)
  • Examples of work you feel comfortable sharing. This might be something online, like a code repository or a blog post, or something unpublished, like an email to colleagues or a personal project you’d be willing to share. Whatever form it takes, we’d love to see an example of your creative and technical work.

What’s it like to work at Stripe?

Stripe is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Stripe makes it easy to start, run, and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Stripe is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start global internet businesses.

We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe. This not only enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work, but also establishes stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and sponsor the people working on them, and we release several tools as open source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Stripes in the short-term and to push them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture, and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.
