About the company

Robinhood is democratizing our financial system. With customers at the heart of our decisions, Robinhood is lowering barriers, removing fees, and providing greater access to financial information. Together, we are building products and services that help create a financial system everyone can participate in.  

Robinhood is a fast-growing company and was recognized as a CNBC Disruptor 50 and a LinkedIn Top Startup in 2019. We’re continuing to grow and are looking for incredible talent that can help us achieve our mission.

Robinhood is headquartered in Menlo Park, California, with offices in Lake Mary, Florida, and London, UK. 

About the role

Join our small and high-impact team. At Robinhood, our web engineers work on two different products: the consumer-facing web product our users love and the operational backbone that powers this and our other Robinhood products.

As a member of our web consumer team, you’ll contribute towards building our first web product, a rich client-side web application that powers the next generation of Robinhood.

As a member of the web operations team, you’ll build core frontend infrastructure and tooling to enable other developers to ship domain-specific applications across the financial industry.

During the interview process, you’ll work with your point recruiter and hiring manager to mutually decide which team best suits both your interests and skills (web operations or consumer web).

Your day-to-day will involve: 

  • Architecting new consumer features and reusable UI paradigms using ReactJS
  • Leading the product from inception to launch, and own large parts of the product’s execution
  • Building and testing products to support Robinhood’s brokerage operations
  • Collaborating with brokerage and market specialists to rapidly iterate on the product
  • Designing frameworks and tools that empower other developers

Some things we consider critical for this role:

  • Fluency in JavaScript
  • Understanding of functional and reactive programming paradigms
  • Great design intuition and user empathy
  • Passion for supporting power user and building developer tools

Bonus points: 

  • Familiarity with Python/Django and Go (bonus points) 

Core tech stack

  • Modern JavaScript, ES6 and up
  • React
  • Redux + Redux Saga
  • Immutable
  • Flow
  • Babel + Webpack + Sassy CSS (SCSS)
  • Django and Go on the backend

Feeling ready to give 100% to democratizing our financial system? We’d love to have you apply, even if you feel unsure about whether you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Robinhood, we’re looking for people invigorated by our mission, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.
