Hi! I’m Nithi, and I work on the Daffy iOS app.

Over the past year, I’ve gotten to build a lot of the initial MVP from scratch, and take ownership of features essential to the donor-advised fund. Some of these features include our onboarding experience to help you get started with Daffy, adding the ability to contribute cash and crypto via different payment methods, and building out the beginnings of your public profile. In the process, I have worked with some of the most brilliant teammates and been able to take my engineering skills and product sense to the next level.

By joining us as an iOS engineer, you’ll take part in this unique point in our journey as we work to bring Daffy to more people. Over the next year, you’ll take ownership of exciting new features that expand access to our product, as well as features meant to heighten the current Daffy experience on iOS. You will continue to shape our culture—working at Daffy offers an environment that is fast-paced and full of learning opportunities, while also being deeply collaborative, inclusive, and supportive.
