Principal Software Engineer Platform/Infra


Mission
Nine out of ten Americans say nothing would make them feel more confident than having their personal finances in order. We are building the most comprehensive personal finance platform to help people improve their financial lives and achieve their goals.

The Company
The founding team consists of product-driven, serial entrepreneurs with multiple exits. Additionally, our CEO was one of the original creators of Mint.com and has a unique perspective on what is needed to meet consumers' needs in this market.

We are passionate about building a company, product and brand that both customers and employees love. We are seed funded by a top venture firm and a handful of prominent angels, with healthy financial runway.

We have been a fully-distributed team since our founding and are open to remote applicants that live within a 5 hour time zone difference of US Pacific Time.

Your Contribution

  • As our first platform/infrastructure-focused engineer, you will lead our technical efforts as we grow our user base (and potentially our team) across several orders of magnitude.
  • You enjoy helping other engineers be more productive, whether that is through setting up a scalable/reliable production environment, a developer-friendly local development environment, or through coaching and mentoring.
  • You don't mind diving deep into infrastructure and build layers, while still keeping an eye on the big picture.
  • You will have significant input into the processes, rituals, and tools we use in order to create a high performing engineering team.
  • You will typically work with a lot of autonomy, and be expected to "own" the full implementation of whatever you work on.

Skills

  • You have experience with building/scaling production environments for high-scale internet products.
  • You have experience with setting up development environments that scale across dozens of engineers.
  • You are familiar with or interested in concepts like CI/CD, continuous deployment, infrastructure-as-code, etc.
  • You are comfortable ensuring the security of our code and production environments.

Technologies

  • You don't have to tick all the technology boxes, but they're definitely an added benefit
