About Themis

Themis is democratizing governance and risk to make it work for companies rather than against them. We are solving the communication gap experienced by most companies that exist between internal departments and external partners by creating simple, intuitive software to monitor and share governance related controls.

What we're looking for

Themis is looking for a talented lead software engineer focused on UI and UX to be part of our team. We are bringing to life our vision of making governance accessible and easy for everyone. 

We are taking workflows typically run on spreadsheets and emails and building beautiful software to make it easier for organizations to adhere to governance requirements and regulations.

We're looking for smart people who are curious, willing to learn, and who can embrace a challenge. 


This is a multi-faceted role: you will be architecting our customer facing portal which will be used by the largest Fintechs and financial companies in the world. The product is receiving constant feedback from customers and we need you to design and solve customer’s needs with a sustainable React design.

You will also be communicating with our product team and helping lead your team in understanding, breaking down, and assigning work.

Finally, this role will provide broad front end guidelines and leadership to make our codebase sustainable and scalable as we onboard more customers.

Who You Are/Qualifications

  • The ideal candidate will have experience in developing, testing, and deploying production-ready code for a fast paced startup environment.

  • The position seeks highly-motivated individuals that enjoy working in a small dynamic team environment, with a passion for solving challenging problems that can lead to better outcomes in the financial sector.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Information Science, Computer Science or similar discipline, with 5+ years of front end development experience, or 8+ years of work experience.

  • Proficiency in JavaScript, TypeScript, and React.

  • Strong cross-functional leadership, team management, execution, influencing skills and executive summary communication skills.

  • Familiarity with CI/CD pipelines and cloud-based development environments; e.g. GitHub, GitLab, ADO, etc.

  • Some familiarity with Ruby/Ruby on Rails would be a plus as that’s the language and framework that powers our backend.


  • Front end stack architecture and development for our web based application.

  • Mentor and coach other team members with regards to process technology.

  • Work with product to understand business requirements and designs with the ability to transform them into technical requirements, work items, and work assignments with your team to produce quality code. 

  • Perform code reviews to enforce patterns and standards in our code base.


  • Governance and risk is not a traditionally exciting space however Themis is taking a different path which makes building the product fun and approachable.

  • By default we believe in people and give them every opportunity to grow. We believe Themis will succeed when team members are given autonomy to solve problems creatively.

  • We encourage people to research and leverage innovative tools that can be applied to a traditionally sleepy industry.

  • We are focused on speed and quality and are not afraid to cut scope to uphold our standards. To achieve these standards we use modern tools with minimal process and focus on the problems of the day.

  • And most importantly, we want you to bring your personality to work and have fun!
