A little about our team: we take continuous learning to heart. We often dive into computational, financial and economic theory to better understand the engineering problems we face. We also make sure that we have the best tools for the job - we are thoughtful about code quality, testing and architecture, we push code to production confidently multiple times a day, work primarily on microservices and have great monitoring, alerting and debugging tools for production. We also value positive energy, and clear communication and are committed to building an inclusive environment for people from every background.

  • Add positive energy in every meeting, and make your coworkers feel included in every interaction.


  • You have at least 4 years of experience in software engineering.

  • You've designed, built, scaled and maintained production services, and know how to compose a service oriented architecture.

  • You write high quality, well tested code to meet the needs of your customers.
