A cool, fully-remote startup is looking for a Lead Software Engineer… preferably one that does NOT suck!
He must be a generalist with 8+ years of experience and ability to do the work of both a backend developer, a data engineer, and a project manager.
On top of the salary, we will be giving him stock options, performance-based bonuses, and annual profit share,**BUT…**
He must be an**absolute perfectionist**.
He's not doing it just for the money — He simply can't call something "done" when it's not near perfect yet!

# So, What will we build together?
DealTracker is a real-time aggregator that collects deals from all the major online retailers and ranks them based on factors like price comparison, price history, product reviews, and brand reputation.
It's also a curated shopping platform where people can curate products into shareable collections in a Pinterest-like fashion. They can also follow their favorite brands and product categories for personalized deal discovery.
We didn't launch the product yet, but [you can demo our old PoC here to get an idea](https://airtable.com/shr7ed7M2Z3LHDIy4).
