Company Description:Our client is looking for a Lead Software Engineer with a passion for building user facing web applications and providing leadership to other engineers. Our client's goal is to make it as easy as possible for prospective clients to get the financial services they need. They are a small squad of five for now so come join them and help impact their community in a positive way!The team is made up of people who are both inspired innovators and results driven -- individuals who are prepared to roll up their sleeves, to challenge the status quo, to venture far beyond what's comfortable, and who are able to fail and get back up again.

Job Description:Cross functional You'll be working very closely with business leads and product managers to evolve our current offering and add new financial services. You'll also coordinate closely with other engineering teams to consume services they offer and provide data they need.Autonomy: Their team decides how they work best which allows people to take greater ownership and approach problems creatively. We put moral weight on an individual's ability to govern themselves, independent of their position in the organizational structure.Culture: They find value in code reviews, retrospectives, and continuous improvement through honest, but empathetic, review of ourselves and our peers. At the same time, we strive to deliver value rapidly and incrementally and build a product that exceeds client and stakeholder expectations. They are strong users of iterative, agile methods and we ship with continuous integration and delivery.Stack: On the browser side we use React/Redux for building new things and have a bunch of Angular that they are moving away from. On the server side we use Node.js. We deploy services in Docker and Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services. Services (written in Node.js, Scala, and Java) using JSON over HTTP and we store the bulk of our data in Postgres and Amazon S3. As lead engineer you have great sway in changing any or all of that as needed.
