We're working with a client in the financial advisory space that helps large companies understand their options around raising debt, share repurchases, IPO and pre-IPO financing among other things. They have a web application that they use to catalog and generate comps for various types of financing strategies, run Montecarlo simulations, and expose financial models that's used both internally by their own team as well as a small fraction of their clients. They make occasional changes to the application and currently have one full time backend engineer that supports their development efforts. They are looking for a long term, part time, frontend developer who can work with their existing developer to build out new features and maintain existing ones.
Roughly in order of importance:
- You’re comfortable working on legacy codebases (they’re using Meteor v1.2)
- You're available long term
- You have consulting experience
- You have 5+ years experience
