About the Role

We are looking for a full-stack founding engineer with experience in React / Node / Tailwind. We are remote, and mostly based in Ottawa, where we plan to open a physical location at the end of 2024.

Significant experience building production level software is required.

You will be the first member of our development team. We have built our product in partnership with Distill Mobile up until now. You’ll be working very closely with the entire company (4 of us so far!) and be pivotal in helping us grow Knokd into Canada's biggest network for off-market properties.

This position has the potential to grow into a leadership role as the company progresses.
