Senior Software Engineer

Lighter Capital - Seattle, WA

Lighter Capital is a Seattle based fintech company that has created a new fundraising path for early-stage tech companies. Our transparent, data-driven, tech-enabled process provides entrepreneurs revenue-based financing quickly without making them give up equity or board seats. We work with hundreds of visionary startup CEOs each year and our products are truly disrupting the start-up finance industry.

Traditional business lending institutions still rely on highly paper-based processes. They are simply not tooled to be able to underwrite or service loans to startups. Lighter Capital is able to because our internal processes are supported by high-tech custom built software. This is where you will be adding value to Lighter Capital.

We are growing steadily and looking for a Senior Software Engineer with experience building modern Reactive web applications on the Microsoft stack. Our software engineers generally own 1 or more internal applications, having large degrees of autonomy and responsibility to manage their own backlog and prioritize feature requests. You will be part of a team of peers who work collaboratively to ensure consistency across the platform.


  • You will take ownership of at least 1 application in our stable of internal applications.
  • You will lead weekly “sync” meetings with your internal customers, to provide them progress updates, hear what problems they are facing, propose solutions and scrutinize their feature requests.
  • You will manage your own backlog, roadmap and bug list.
  • You will set and track your own OKRs.
  • You will collaborate with your peers, as well as the VP of Engineering and CTO on significant platform changes.


  • Capable of independently planning, developing, launching and supporting a high-user critical multi-user web application from scratch (File/New Solution) using a combination of React, SignalR, JavaScript, C#, SQL Server, Mongo and AWS.
  • Ability to say what you’ll do and then do what you say.
  • At least 4 years commercial/professional experience doing the above.
  • Familiarity with AWS or Azure a bonus.
  • Familiarity with ML or data science a bonus.

This role is based in downtown Seattle and reports to the VP of Engineering.


We are smart, passionate and ambitious group of professionals who love coming to work every day - we hope you will too! We offer competitive salaries, pre-IPO equity, 100% covered medical insurance for employee and dependents, ORCA passes and a well-stocked office just steps from Westlake Center and Pike Place Market.

Founded by Andy Sack, a Seattle-area entrepreneur and mentor to early-stage companies, Lighter Capital was one of the first lenders to use revenue-based financing to fund tech startups. Since 2012, we’ve provided over $125 million in growth capital to over 275 startups.
