**** This position is equity only until funds can be raised***

Exciting opportunity to join the Leadership Team of a potential unicorn!

Fun1st was founded in 2017 by a group of educatiors who realized technological solutions can solve many K-12 challenges. In 2020 we used personal funds for the build, launch, and early operation of the Fun1st digial school store. We launched our web based application in September 2021 accesssible to all schools and students. We are currently in our first accelerator at GSD labs, and gearing up to raise our Seed Round.

We are looking to bring on a Tech Lead in parallel with our Seed Round, to round out our preliminary leadership team and to increase our development. For your first 12-18 months this will very much be a fingers-on-keyboards role as the lead developer. As technical lead you will help build our inital team, but over the long-term we expect this role to evolve into a more traditional technical management role.

Fun1st will be fully remote for the foreseeable future, with some periodic offsite gathering.
