// About LearnLux
LearnLux is on a mission to make financial wellness a priority. In our world today, knowledge about personal finance is not a priority at any level of the education system and as a result, people miss out on their prime investment period, fail to develop the credit they’ll need later in life, and make big financial decisions out of fear—rather than education LearnLux’s online learning tools and lessons are built to be engaging, interactive & jargon-free, and we strive to be a leader in the space of financial education content. To share our mission at scale, we partner with Human Resources departments of leading companies to offer valuable benefits that help employees understand their 401k options, refinance their student loans, and do their best work every day because they feel great about their finances. We’re based in shiny new offices in Downtown Crossing in beautiful Boston, MA, and backed by Ashton Kutcher’s fund Sound Ventures, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, and other prominent operators.

// About The Role
While LearnLux is partnering with leading companies to create dynamic financial wellness initiatives for their employees, our users are consuming personal finance knowledge through our interactive lessons and tools like net worth calculators, chatbots and more. We’re looking for an experienced front-end developer interested in contributing to an established and growing startup, where you will have a real impact on the business and technology. You will work with our engineering, sales, marketing, and creative teams to help deliver a great user experience across all aspects of LearnLux’s digital presence. Working within a small agile development process, you will be bringing designs to life and helping to build new features across all areas of our product. You can expect to participate in all aspects of the product life-cycle.

// Responsibilities
