Job Description

We're a small team of engineers working to help people build credit and savings. We’ve been busy building an in-house banking core that allows us to underwrite and service loans for our customers. With this comes the operational challenge of having to maintain a high-level of security and reliability that’s expected of a modern financial technology stack. Our infrastructure is mostly hosted on Amazon Web Services. Some tools we work with daily include Docker, Terraform, Packer, Gitlab, ElasticSearch, PostgreSQL. Most of our code is written in Python, but we’re open to using other languages if our needs align.

Candidate Description:

We're looking for a full-stack engineer to join our team to work on either improving our financial systems or improving the overall user experience. You'll have the opportunity to take ownership over important parts of our operations and make important technical decisions. You should enjoy developing backend systems, but not be afraid to occasionally dabble in the front-end.
