  • Provide live on-call support by participating in the team on-call rotation and owning production issues from root cause analysis to resolution to future prevention. 
  • Partner with cross-functional teams (engineering, product, design, security, compliance etc.) to bring ideas to life 
  • Set and maintain high standards of technical excellence across the team. 
  • Mentor junior engineers and help hire new talent to build a stronger team. 

What you will need:  

  • At a minimum, a Bachelor's in CS or equivalent education, and either 3+ years of relevant professional experience or advanced degree such as a master’s or PhD. 
  • Proficiency in at least one modern development framework / language (e.g., Java, Python, Go).  
  • Excellent communication and cross-functional collaboration skills to thrive in a fast-paced environment. 
  • Experience leading projects from architectural design to production, while setting and maintaining high standards of technical excellence across your team.  
  • Expertise in at least one area relevant to our cloud-based financial platform (e.g., fintech, distributed systems, databases, security, or front-end). 

  

Added bonus if you have: 

  • Typical qualifications for the role are 7+ years of relevant professional experience or a combination of work experience and advanced education. 
  • A demonstrable ability to lead and mentor engineers, fostering a culture of collaboration and innovation.
