Job Description

Akouba is a software platform that provides banks the tools and products to compete in today's digital world. Our secure, cloud-based platform drastically reduces the overhead and costs associated with legacy banking systems. Our first product is an online application for small-business loans. We collect borrower's information, pull 3rd party data, and analyze the business's health using the bank's credit policies.

We're looking for ambitious and bright engineers that want to help build the systems that will power a critical piece of our economy for years to come.

We're primarily a Rails shop, but we're not religious about it. We utilize the tools and languages that make the most sense for the problem we're trying to solve. Our next hires are going to play a critical role in shaping and building our architecture as we scale the platform and add customers.
