Freelance Job Description

Fullsend is a US-based software development agency. You will be the first engineering hire for our Singapore team. Givinga is our largest client and your first project will be centered around them. In the future, we will have tons of other projects for you to work on, some in the US and some in APAC. Sky’s the limit here.

Givinga is building a platform for philanthropic giving. Companies can use Givinga’s technology to deploy a customized donation programs with ease, using it to encourage employees to donate to meaningful causes and reward them when they do.

What you’ll be doing
  • The first project for this role is to rewrite Givinga’s entire backend from Scala to Typescript. You will be working directly with our Head of APAC, who will be architecting and guiding the rewrite.

Once your skill levels are proven out, we will aggressively push to increase your rate and thus your take home. We work with a lot of US clients so you will be getting US level rates if you can prove yourself.
  • Technology
  • Typescript, Nest.js, TypeORM, Postgres, AWS
