We have partnered with an Aussie startup who are helping us change the way we achieve our financial goals. I’m super stoked about this one! Let me introduce uStash
Ok – Who are these guys?
Good mates from a young age, Ryan and Mitchell started uStash in 2016. Having been a couple of young lads growing up on the Gold Coast, they knew from personal experience how bloody hard it is to enjoy life and get ahead at the same time!
Having tried all different ways to get ahead with next to no success, they knew there had to be an easier way! So a couple of years ago they started putting their heads together and what do you know – a briliant idea for an app that simplifies the way we save money and/or eliminate debt was born. A saviour for the every day ‘battler’.
What are they building?
uStash is an app that assists users in implementing an automated savings regime. Their aim is to help people reach their financial goals and relieve some of the financial stress I’m sure we all feel from time-to-time.
This app utilises the concept of “round ups” which once connected rounds up each users transactions (specified by the user) to the nearest dollar. Each week this deposits the total sum of those round ups into an account of your choice. Yes ,it connects to whoever YOU bank with.
The best way to think of this app is like a ‘virtual piggy bank’ for your spare change. Whether your financial goals are paying off your credit card, saving for that next trip to the Caribbean, whatever! This app will literally help get you there!
So what’s the challenge here?
Glad you asked! 95% of the iOS app has been built with a Node backend. The aim for the time being will essentially be to clone the UI and functionality of the iOS app using React Native to get their app onto Android Play Store. The long-term goal will be to build an iOS clone app once they have raised additional money with their MVP.
This is an opportunity for a mid-weight or senior developer to jump on board at the ground level and build something from scratch!
They are solving a real problem and have implemented a business model which is working – so they are well set up for some exciting long-term growth. You could be a part of this!
They are currently based out of River City Labs in Fortitude Valley however the role can be based anywhere
