#22979: Lead Engineer - Fintech Startup
San Francisco, CA
Company Description:Our client's loan servicing team is responsible for building software that moves hundreds of millions of dollars. In addition to the $1+ billion in loans actively serviced, they build tools to maximize growth while providing the best possible client experience. Their focus is on building a stable platform that allows us to move faster over time; this means an eye for detail, a willingness to rethink domains from first principles, and an ability to collaborate well across technical and non-technical teams.
Job Description:Data Focused: Their business is driven by data. Through their application process, they collect over 100,000 different data points to help us to better serve customers with a full understanding of their financial potential and background. They release on demand, typically 2-3 times per week, which allows the team to continue to improve their own skills as they scale with the rest of the organization.Autonomy: Their team decides how they work best which allows people to take greater ownership and approach problems creatively. They value an individual's ability to govern themselves, independent of their position in the organizational structure. Each member of our team is empowered to offer design and architectural recommendations to help us make the best product possibleCulture: They find value in code reviews, retrospectives, and continuous improvement through honest, but empathetic, review of ourselves and our peers. At the same time, they 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 they 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.
