About You

We are looking for Senior Full Stack Engineers who care deeply about building world-class software products that people love. You are someone who wants to look back 10 years from now and be proud that you’ve made a dent in the universe when it comes to creating more equity owners and improving the financial future of employees around the world.

  • You are insanely passionate about building products that customers love. You follow all the trends in your preferred technology, and you're up to date on the latest industry best practices for software development.
  • You are relentlessly resourceful. You ask "How can we solve this?" rather than "Can we solve this?"
  • You have built and shipped multiple products from the ground up and you know what it takes to build software architecture that can scale to millions of users.
  • When it comes to quality, you care about more than just working software and can dive into the internals of any piece of code or library to understand why your code is not running as fast as you expect.
  • When it comes to software development your opinions are strong, but loosely held.
  • You understand the value of building testable code from day one. You implement automated testing strategically and don't equate code coverage to testing quality.
  • You know when to prioritize speed over quality, and have the discipline to revisit those tradeoffs when the time is right.
  • You can code insanely fast, without breaking things.
  • You think strategically about when to build something yourself or when to use open source libraries.
  • You have a growth mindset, and are always open to new ways of doing things.
  • [Bonus] You’re passionate (or at least curious) about fintech.
