About Juniper Square

Our mission is to unlock the full potential of private markets. Privately owned assets like commercial real estate, private equity, and venture capital make up half of our financial ecosystem yet remain inaccessible to most people. We are digitizing these markets, and as a result, bringing efficiency, transparency, and access to one of the most productive corners of our financial ecosystem. If you care about making the world a better place by making markets work better through technology – all while contributing as a member of a values-driven organization – we want to hear from you.

Juniper Square offers employees a variety of ways to work, ranging from a fully remote experience to working full-time in one of our physical offices. We invest heavily in digital-first operations, allowing our teams to collaborate effectively across most US states and 2 Canadian Provinces. We have a physical office in San Francisco, CA for employees who prefer to work in an office some or all of the time.

About your role

As a Staff Software Engineer at Juniper Square, you will be primarily a technical leader, identifying and acting on opportunities to increase the engineering team's efficiency, stability, and consistency. Other responsibilities could include leading an engineering team and collaborating closely with product, design, and QA teams to build and deliver delightful user experiences, making complex workflows simple and intuitive.

You will lead efforts to instill and iterate on engineering best practices, ensuring a healthy codebase and ultimately leveling up the team.

  • Provide full stack focused technical leadership, leveling up existing team members and helping build high-performance teams

  • Position our entire software stack - both application and DevOps-related - for success as we transition from a startup to a large organization

  • Be instrumental in the transition from our monolith into Service Oriented Architecture

  • Actively seek opportunities to improve our platform and developer experience and own those initiatives through execution

  • Implement and ensure best practices across the teams to maximize developer productivity

  • Own the long-term vision of key focus areas such as Juniper Square’s design system, GraphQL schema design, build-and-deploy process, and code quality initiatives, including Typescript and test coverage

  • Contribute directly to efforts through building features and frameworks, conducting code reviews, participating in architecture and system design discussions

  • Actively monitoring and addressing production issues

  • Write high-quality code that is well-tested, secure, and maintainable

  • Lead the development of complex workflows, working with both frontend and backend engineers

  • Mentor other engineers and designers across the company on best practices for full stack development


  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, or equivalent work experience

  • 7+ years of experience working with modern web application frameworks (preferably React)

  • Preferred experience in one of the following: Python/Java/C++/C#

  • Solid understanding of server-side MVC frameworks (like Django, Rails, Pyramid etc.)

  • Experience with SQL database schema design and query optimization is a plus

  • Experience operating Linux clusters (Amazon Web Services is a plus)

  • You must be flexible and adaptable—you will be juggling multiple projects in a fast-paced startup environment.

At Juniper Square, we believe building a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture makes us a better company. If you think this job sounds like a fit, we encourage you to apply even if you don’t meet all the qualifications.
