23323 Senior Software Engineer, FinTech - backend / architecture focused with application development experience

San Francisco, CA 94101 (415)
Our client is the stock market for private companies, providing accredited investors access to the most successful pre-IPO companies in the world. Billions of dollars of stock trade every year in the global secondary market, brokered through a network around the world in a slow, expensive, and inefficient process. This market is growing rapidly as the trend of companies having extended private lifetimes continues to grow, and more capital globally seeks the returns the public markets no longer offer. Our client's secure platform makes it easier than ever to add pre-IPO equity to your portfolio or gain liquidity if you're a shareholder in a reliable, legal, and company-friendly way.

Opportunity

We're looking for experienced engineers, who can play the role of a player-coach -- set product strategy and roadmaps, lead the engineering team, set the example with best-in-class capability and process. Experience at a rapidly growing startup, cutting edge teams at a larger tech company, or building systems and technology for financial services firms is ideal.

In Summary

Architect and implement the system that transacts hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

Build technology used by almost every investor, employee, and company in Silicon Valley.

Manage the engineering team and own the outcomes.

Technical Challenges

Our client's systems process tens of millions in dollars in transactions every month (growing quickly!), and their live production systems are subject to strict requirements when it comes to speed, reliability, and security. Doing this while delivering a delightful experience to all of their users is a challenge they relish.

They have also been able to balance these stringent requirements with their desire to be agile and productive through intelligent abstractions, investments in their infrastructure, and their affinity for functional programming and static typing.

Engineering Culture and Process

Our client believes in transparency and operates as a group of peers who respect ideas, talent, and initiative.
They have an engineering strategy session once every few weeks where they realign our priorities and map out milestones for all their initiatives.
