Software Is Eating The World

Generalist Engineers

San Francisco, CA, US

Apply for this job

At Puddle, we believe there's a better alternative to credit than what is currently offered by the financial industry. In fact, we've proved it over the last 10 years through our work with micro-credit and self-financed groups throughout the world. Any community, with a little trust and a good methodology, has more than enough resources to solve its own financial needs.

We're rebuilding the credit industry from the ground up on social networks based in trust. We need you to help us kickstart this revolution.

We are taking on this audacious goal from our beautiful home in the heart of San Francisco's SOMA district. We're surrounded by a carefully curated community of other inspiring changemakers, including an in-house chef who whips up amazing meals and snacks for us throughout the day. We've got funding for years to come from some amazing investors, and a team that's built products like Kiva and Yahoo! Messenger from the ground up.

We're looking for passionate, entrepreneurial creators, hungry to mold the future we want for ourselves. Come build a culture and company with us that makes that happen. We're just getting started.
