Boldly is an early stage social impact startup empowering consumers to influence big companies' policies towards people and our planet.  

We are a small, remote team.  Our CEO works full-time out of Sleepy Hollow, NY.  Our 3-person technical team members work part-time out of Helsinki, Finland and Tallinn, Estonia.  We are a diverse team with a female CTO and want to prioritize diversity in our founding team members.  Women of color are particularly encouraged to apply.

A hands-on leader, you are ready to personally undertake important pieces of development work. You are also the 'product owner', managing activities to gather input from current and potential community members, including partners and corporate clients, on how Boldly products and services can serve them, and translating this insight into a coherent and results-driven product development strategy.   If you love the sound of Boldly and see yourself in a hands-on technical leadership role but not as product owner, please apply anyway.  For the right person we can recruit a product owner to work alongside you.  

You will recruit, lead and manage any and all technical staff and contractors.
