Junior Developer working for San Francisco Marketplace

We have paid about 200K to develop the building blocks to build a marketplace - see the site at

-want to take direction from Nigel (a bubble pioneer) and Igor, the CEO & Founder
-are a junior bubble developer located outside the United States
-want to watch our documentation videos (yep, we spent as much time on documentation and empowerment as development)
-want to earn cash
-can offer at least 10 hours a week for an evaluation period

4x entrepreneur living in San Francisco / Michigan
1x hedge fund
1x high frequency trading software (traded millions of contracts on the CME)
1x airbnb property management company
-and now, crazy enough to try a marketplace.

We’ve worked with ex-employees of AirDev, ZeroQuode, and QREW and now have a Bubble Pioneer as advisor. We have plugins integrated in React into our marketplace (they are private).

We want someone who can work ~ 15 hours a week plus or minus (with ample vacations).
We have challenging needs and we will ask you to use our communication tools:
-slack, zoom, loom, teamviewer 11

We pay competitive market rates and are willing to discuss equity compensation.

Thanks for taking a look and we will pay a small referral bonus if you forward this to your (talented!) friends.

We do not pay for the first 2-3 times we meet to get comfortable to mutually gauge fit.

What’s the size of the operation? We have a team of 6 who have worked for over a year together. Ample training provided. Pay goes up over time.


Hi I would like to consider this opportunity and work with you guys. Kindly let me know what are next steps to proceed.

Hi Igor,

I’m a product manager in my day job and a bubble developer most times outside of that. I’ve been at it for about 9 months and built a project management platform. I’ve also been the first employee at a startup in New York City and worn multiple hats ranging from support to sales and involved in fundraising. I think I can provide a lot of value with this experience.

I’m currently in Europe for the next few months but will be moving to Washington DC in the summer. I plan to continue to work remote as I have for the past year but want to focus more on Bubble development.

I would love to take my relevant experiences and skills to an opportunity like what you’re describing. If you’re open to it, I’d like to like to connect to see if there’s a mutual fit for the opportunity.

Hi Igor, I would love to learn more about this opportunity. Direct message me about the next steps. Thanks, Krisztian

Hi @igor ! I’m ready to help, you can check my UX/UI skills by the links below.


Thank you Asa. Unfortunately, because we have a decent number of employees who work eastern time zone (US) hours, we can’t make the time difference with India or Pakistan work for us.

Hello Gyurisc, we need a little more bubble experience.


Your profile says you joined this year, 4 months ago. How could we verify 9 months of experience?

Given your multiple hats, I wonder if this job would be either tedious for you (you’d be taking direction not setting direction) or not in your pay expectations. For stability, we prefer to hire outside of the United States to match or exceed market rates. Just yesterday, I interviewed a 20 year old who suggested 100K/yr for this position from Australia (way, way off the mark). I’ve been hiring for Bubble since 2017 so I like to avoid these unstable arrangements and high flying kids.

Currently, we have found 2/3 devs we want to hire for the trial so we are looking for one more. After the two week trial, only one of the junior devs will stay, so the trial (while paid) has some risk that we will not continue.

Thank you, I hope that openness will indeed be helpful in finding the right fit over the next couple of days. We intend to start the two week trial on Monday April 12th.


Igor, I’ve moved this to DM to provide some more details.

Hello, thank you to everyone who has engaged with this post. For right now, we are at capacity on trial for junior bubble devs. Thank you again for looking and I wish you all much success in your endeavors - Igor Schmertzler

Niki - right now we are offering three trial contracts and we only have the managerial capacity to hire one developer after the trial. I deeply appreciate your interest and I could imagine we will need to hire again in 3-4 months. We are not an agency so we’re not upselling your work and so we put a lot of energy into training and coordination. Hope we get to cross paths again

(We expected to hire two but ending up hiring three.) Currently, all trial contracts are oversubscribed so I don’t want to waste your time right now by having you go through any motions. Check back in a quarter if you’re still interested!

Sure, no problem whatsoever. Best of luck with your business. If you need any more devs in the future, keep in touch. Best,

At this point, I have had the distinct opportunity to work with 12 bubble developers of all different backgrounds and across 6 countries.

As an entrepreneur who generally supports other entrepreneurs (you and I don’t really compete since we are building for different markets), I am open to fielding some questions about my experience with Bubble agencies and contractors.

If you are an entrepreneur looking for bubble help, I would be happy to share insights on hiring and managing to help you on your journey. Feel free to reach out!

We have reached the next stage of our business. Organic traffic is up about 10x from 6 months ago and it looks like it could 10x in the next 6 months. Please pm me if you would like to discuss an opportunity

Thank you for considering. (Please see for the site. We help multi-locals find, negotiate, and maintain relationships in secondary residences. Consultants, Divorced Parents, Hybrid Workers – anyone who would use a repeat airbnb).
