Join our small, fiery team on our mission to usher in the Bitcoin golden age.
Shakepay is one of the fastest growing startups in Canada. We've grown 10x in the last year. 2% of Canadians are on Shakepay. We're building something really special. We need true believers to join our team. We're looking for ambitious professionals with a thirst for knowledge that are interested in working with the most exciting financial innovation ever created: Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is important because it enables wealth to be stored with a person without need for a third party. Its fundamental use-case as a store of value with a predictable monetary policy is having profound implications on freeing people into financial sovereignty.
Full Stack Developer
Imagine shaking your phone to instantly earn bitcoin. Our customers might think it’s magic, but if you’re reading this you probably know that it’s not (or is it?). It’s not. It’s our stellar dev team that makes it happen. That shaking idea started as a secret easter-egg for our fledgling customer base, and once word got out about it, we suddenly had to deal with service outages from too many people shaking at the same time.
Of course we’ve since solved that problem, and now with over 1,000,000 shakers (aka “customers''), it’s a core part of our identity—not the shaking, but the idea that we came up with something new and exciting in the slow and boring world of financial services. We’re looking for an intermediate full stack developer to help us reimagine how Canadians build wealth and think about what they can do with their money. Unique ideas and the knowledge and determination to make them a reality: that’s the real magic.
Totally real Shakepay reviews from the future, after you join:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Does Shakepay run on literal magic?
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I thought magic wasn’t real. Using Shakepay changed my mind.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wow, it must’ve taken all 3 genie wishes to make this app!
Oh yeah, we’re a bitcoin platform. In fact, Shakepay is the easiest way for Canadians to buy and earn bitcoin. We’ve got a one of a kind community of shakers (aka “customers”) that keeps on growing, regardless of how the crypto market is doing. They love Shakepay almost as much as they love bitcoin, which is really saying something. To the Bitcoin Golden Age!
