We have partnered with a FinTech start-up who have just secured $11M in Series A funding. We are looking for a founding Backend Engineer to join their team based in San Francisco. They are backed by the same investors as companies like Stripe, Airbnb, Notion and one of their Co-Founders designed the interface of the very first iPhone! The aim is to build a modern and aspirational banking experience by bringing rewards and benefits to the every day debit card. 

Why this role: 

  • Build a mobile banking app that you would genuinely use. We're challenging the status quo and building a premium debit card to align incentives with our members
  • Work alongside a lean and highly-talented team. We launched and scaled to millions of dollars in transactional volume with a team of 2.5 engineers - ask us about it. 
  • Our team is super collaborative and transparent. You have impact across the entire company from new product features, internal tools, or jamming on a marketing idea - no shortage of things to work on
What does a Backend Engineer do here? 
  • You will work to ensure that integrations with key vendors are stable and reliable - our card issuer, card printer, identity verification vendors, Plaid, etc 
  • You will build the backend logic that powers new features. Potential examples: instant bank transfers, custom rewards - features that will enable us to attract and retain more members
  • You will build scalable infrastructure that can handle very large amounts of data with low latency
This role would be a good fit if you...
  • Have been working as a Backend Engineer for 3+ years, with at least 2 of them using NodeJS, AWS, GraphQL and PostgreSQL 
  • Worked at a small start-up and understand how to scale backend systems 
  • Have spent time working as a senior engineer but are still excited about being a core contributor to the codebase
  • Actually care about building a consumer product that has thoughtful and intuitive deisgn across the full stack - from mobile app UI to database architecture 
What's on offer: 
  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • Full health benefits and 401k 
  • Monthly stipends for self learning, self care and commuting costs 
  • Flexibility with WFH
