Paperclip

Senior Fullstack Developer

Full-Time in Bay Area, CA - Remote OK - Senior

Help us build a new financial operating system

Paperclip is a seed-stage startup that's backed by top-tier VC firms to build modern finance and accounting software.

Today’s finance teams are expected to be part-strategic finance, part-data analyst and part-systems architect — but the decades-old accounting solutions they're using can't support this approach.

We're changing this by building truly flexible accounting software that integrates well with other systems and provides ways to make accounting data more accessible and operationally useful.
