This is a full-time role and can be fully remote anywhere in the contiguous U.S. For a more in-depth look at our engineering culture, check out our page on Key Values.

  • Support and mentor the engineers on the team, elevating overall team capability
  • Partner with the engineering manager for technical roadmap & direction
  • Collaborate with Product, Design, and other engineering teams, to enable short-term deliverables and long-term strategic initiatives
  • Design, extend, improve, and manage the complexity of our global financial products
  • Deliver high-quality solutions and features with speed and end-to-end ownership of your projects

  • 10+ years of relevant experience, including at a high-growth or early-stage startup
  • Strong collaboration skills with key stakeholders to discover requirements and deliver a solution

  • Preferred but not required:
  • Experience with core parts of our stack (Node.JS, Express, React, ES6, Typescript, Python, Postgres, Terraform, AWS)
  • Experience with mobile development (iOS, Android) and building features and applications with a mobile responsive design
  • Experience at a fintech startup

  • Expand our design system to unify UI/UX across our consumer and customer-facing products
  • Evolve our customer dashboard to streamline monitoring, management, and analysis 
  • Build new APIs or iterate our existing production APIs

  • Step 1: The phone screen gives us a chance to learn more about you, your goals, and your interests. It’s also a chance for you to learn about us and get answers to your questions. 
  • Step 2: The technical assessment (a one-hour coding challenge) is intended to give you a taste of what you’ll be doing at Nova Credit. We avoid asking algorithmic questions, so you can expect to be asked to complete more practical tasks, such as working with an existing API, parsing JSON responses, or building a UI component.
  • Step 3: The final round will give you the opportunity to meet additional engineers, have a conversation with your potential manager and expose you to the Nova Credit culture. It is broken down into three one-hour technical sessions (coding challenges/systems design sessions), a forty-five-minute chat with the hiring manager, and a debrief with our Head of Engineering.
  • Everyone is welcome at Nova Credit. We are an equal-opportunity employer where our diversity and inclusion are central pillars to our company strategy. We look for applicants who understand, embrace, and thrive in a multicultural and increasingly globalized world. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
