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
- 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
- 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
- Competitive salary and stock options
- Full health benefits and 401k
- Monthly stipends for self learning, self care and commuting costs
- Flexibility with WFH
