    • At this time, NextCapital will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.***

      What You'll Use

      • Ruby/JRubyFrameworks/Libraries

          WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
          • This position is fully remote, or hybrid if you are in the Greater Chicago area, or onsite in our newly renovated downtown office, it's up to you!
          • Disrupt the financial advice industry by bringing affordable, easy to use financial tools to millions of people
          • Have a direct impact on the strategic growth and scale of the company
          • Enjoy a laid back work environment & learn from FinTech's best & brightest
          • Receive great benefits like stock options, 401(k) match, and employer contributions to health, dental and vision coverage
          • Join a fast growing company where you can have a real impact on the company's future
          • When the COVID-19 pandemic cools down, participate in company-sponsored cornhole leagues, company outings, wine tastings, fantasy football leagues, hackathons and other fun events
          • When our pandemic 'remoteness' ends, enjoy a newly built out office on Michigan Avenue with a view of Millennium Park and Lake Michigan
          • And, yes, when we're able to safely re-convene in a physical space, sip locally roasted coffee, kombucha, or craft beer at your modular sitting/standing desk
          • Participate in women in tech events and service days at local organizations
          • Relax with monthly, company wide, guided meditation sessions
