About the job
Our client is creating the operating system that will power the next generation of technology startups.
At our client, we understand that running a business requires more than building the right product and delighting your customers – you have to make money too. But for most founders, balancing the books, managing expenses, issuing invoices, and chasing late payments just isn’t what they signed up for. Our solution is an enterprise data platform that extracts information from the SaaS apps you already use, and automatically delivers it to where it’s needed for finance, accounting, and operations.
For customers, that means no longer needing to process transactions by hand or stitch together data in spreadsheets. And importantly, it means no longer needing backoffice employees. Instead, a single unified platform allows customers to monitor, control, and optimize their profitability with no manual effort.
Our clients are the future leaders of their industries, from software to biotech and everything in between. Working here means amplifying the profound effects they’ll have on our lives by profoundly improving theirs.
Think about how easy it is for you to download an app, connect your personal financial accounts and get an almost instant overview of assets, transactions and more, with neat categorizations and insights to help you make better financial decisions. It may surprise you, but no such platform exists for businesses — yet.
This role will be at forefront of creating a first-of-its-kind application. You'll:
Work with our Director of Engineering, and the rest of the technology team to build a strong engineering culture
Design and build the core product, infrastructure, and tools to meet the needs of a complex business
Help set technical standards and best practices
Mentor and coach engineers by reviewing code, architecture, and PRs
Work with Product and Design in a highly collaborative and transparent environment

You may be a good fit if you:
Have 4+ years of software engineering experience in shipping software at scale
Love building complex products that solve real customer problems
Have a proven track record of taking an idea and making it happen through the entire software development lifecycle
Are comfortable working with ambiguity and value incremental progress over perfection
Have been responsible for your code in production environments
Are opinionated, but enjoy the benefits of being a generalist and not tied down to a specific language, framework, or part of a codebase
Are interested in helping us define the engineering process and culture
Have experience with some of the tools in our stack (or with similar tools)
Our tech stack:
Frontend is built in React
Backend is built with Node.js utilizing MongoDB, Kafka, and Koa
