The Opportunity

Join a rapidly growing team led by experienced technical founders with a market-leading technology product. We are searching for a Senior Full-Stack Engineer to play a leading role on our Engineering team as we continue to scale our product suite. We are seeking a colleague who is excited about programming and building day-to-day, while also collaborating to determine Chronograph’s technical vision and set rigorous code quality standards.

As Senior Full-Stack Engineer, you will be responsible for helping design and implement systems and features across Chronograph’s suite of products. One day you might be optimizing the performance of an API endpoint or implementing a new frontend feature; another you could be contributing to an architecture outline or helping identify new talent.

Our engineers work with a diverse array of languages and technologies (including GraphQL, Node.js, React/Redux, Ruby/Rails, some Python and Go, etc.), making it possible to find many growth paths. We are also increasingly embracing machine learning, which will be a growth area in future. 

You should care about software design and have built products that other people love to use and work with, and have experience encouraging the adoption of best practices. At Chronograph, engineers work closely with our product and design leaders to create world-class user experiences. The Chronograph engineering team is centered around learning, knowledge sharing, and both personal and team development.


  • Six (6) to ten (10) years of professional development experience
  • A passion for maintainable, readable, stable, secure, and scalable code
  • Proven experience architecting and developing SaaS applications; extra points for finance-oriented or enterprise solutions
  • Advanced knowledge of, and extensive experience with, ES6/7, Node.js, React/Redux, and other modern JS tools and paradigms; experience with Ruby on Rails and/or similar backend frameworks (e.g. Django) desired but not required
  • Strong experience with relational database design and development (preferably with PostgreSQL) and understanding of NoSQL databases and in-memory stores (e.g. Redis, DynamoDB)
  • Experience with data engineering, data pipelines, and/or machine learning highly desirable
  • Understanding of microservice design and working with distributed systems
  • Strong communication skills; able to help others on the team quickly understand technical issues
  • Ability to work both individually and collaboratively to deliver results in a fast-paced startup environment
  • Experience with testing frameworks, and CI/CD tools
  • Unbelievably positive attitude, sense of humor and creativity
  • Strong analytical, project leadership and communication skills

An Insider's view of Chronograph

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Chronograph is an outlier amongst financial technology companies. The team is made up of passionate and intelligent individuals who take their work very seriously, but the atmosphere is laid-back and fun, with a cool office in North Brooklyn! You would be hard pressed to find another company in such a serious field with the same casual vibe.

Rachel Haut

Senior Analyst, Data Operations

What projects are you most excited about?

As a full-stack developer, I most enjoy projects which allow me to be creative and make life easier for our end users. There’s nothing better than hearing that a new feature “saved me hours of work”. Along the way, I’m able to learn and build on technologies our team has adopted - Typescript, GraphQL, and React Hooks are recent examples.

Brendan O'Dea

Fullstack Developer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Chronograph’s rapid growth means that opportunities to step into leadership roles are always popping up. After building a foundation in private equity fundamentals and becoming an expert with our software, it became possible to take on responsibilities outside my original job description and advance to a new client-facing role.

Fred Bower

Manager, Growth Team

What is your vision for the company?

Private capital markets are seeing transformative shift in investor behavior. From our vantage point – at the intersection of private capital markets – Chronograph is uniquely positioned to shape the future systems and networks that can galvanize growth in this dynamic market. This opportunity to work with leading institutions is unparalleled.

Andrew Kehl

Head of Client Development

What makes someone successful on your team?

Attention to detail and a client-first approach are embodied across the team. We value a commitment to quality, the ability to think through second and third order implications, and efficient execution. This overall desire for excellence fuels thoughtful questions, innovation, and continual improvement in the team’s performance.
