About the Role
As a backend engineer, you’ll be responsible for extending our systems to support additional banking features, increases in usage volume, and the needs of our non-technical company functions.
You’ll maintain our core offering — a deposit account and debit card powered through our Banking as a Service partner, while designing our architecture to bundle additional financial services into a personalized product experience. We’ve adopted a lightweight microservice infrastructure that allows us to move quickly, but that can flex on robustness to ensure scalability as our engineering team grows.
What you’ll do
Collaborate with our product, design, and front end functions to build new financial offerings that advance the company mission.
Work with back end peers to establish new processes, software patterns, and tools that expedite our development process.
Maintain a testing and observability stack that keeps our system stable and proactively alerts us of internal or third party users.
Work with leadership to plan our engineering execution across different time horizons.
Opinionated on software engineering best practices, at a code and developer productivity level.
Product-minded and passionate about delivering delightful experiences to customers.
Experienced building backend systems that grow in complexity over time.
A critical thinker capable of making tradeoffs in a fast paced environment.
A great communicator and collaborator, capable of creating and running cross-functional processes.
4+ years of experience in software engineering
2+ years of experience using Python and Postgres
Bonus: Experience with GraphQL, DevOps (Terraform, AWS, Kubernetes), and pub/sub models (Kafka)
We value domain experts that are obsessed with their craft and push the quality bar beyond reach. We also like generalists that are self-driven and entrepreneurial, who can make product decisions and own operational processes.
We have offices in Flatiron (NYC) and SoMa (SF). We are also open to remote talent — half of our team is spread across other US cities and Mexico.
Competitive salary and generous equity
Medical, dental, and vision insurance
Gym Pass subscription
Daily office lunch
Paid parental leave
Bi-annual company-wide destination offsites
Sponsored travel to HQ on a per-need basis (if remote)
