23314 Senior Software Engineer - FinTech Equity Platform
San Francisco, CA, United States


COMPANY


Our client allows employees who have their net worth locked up in private companies break free of their golden handcuffs. Their customers mail them gifts, because they ve been enabled to do things like buy a house, pay off student debt, send kids to college, and even get their new companies off the ground.


Our client s employees are clever and relentless, taking on multiple functions and responsibilities. Even if you're applying for a specialized role, they love candidates who have high general intelligence, with the potential to take on evolving and growing responsibilities over time. It's proved very effective for them as they ve tripled our team and more than 10xed their volume in the last 2 years.



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, or 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 our users is a challenge we relish.
We also been able to balance these stringent requirements with our desire to be agile and productive through intelligent abstractions, investments in our infrastructure, and our affinity for functional programming and static typing.



Engineering Culture and Process


They believe in transparency and operate as a group of peers who respect ideas, talent, and initiative.
We have an engineering strategy session once every few weeks where we realign our priorities and map out milestones for all our initiatives.
