UI engineers to help build our dashboard products. Currently at Synapse, we are working on three dashboard products.

1. Developer Dashboard: Our developer dashboard product lets developers do two things:
a) allows them to be able to view all of their API activity.
b) Perform any action on behalf of the end users that they can perform with our APIs (backup if their integration is having issues). You can see a preview of our developer dashboard here:

2. Client Manager: Our client manager allows our customers to manage their keys, keep their billing and identity information updated, among other things. You can see a preview of that here: In the future, we will extend more self-service functionalities here.

3. Super-Secret Core Banking Dashboard: This is the dashboard our admins and our partner banks use to view and monitor all Synapse activity. For obvious reasons, we cannot show you a preview of this.

If you join our dashboard team, you will be working on one of the above.
