We’re looking for a Full Time experienced Back End Engineer to join our rapidly growing company. You’ll get the opportunity to be at the forefront of developing the product of a high-growth, fast-paced startup backed by Techstars and featured in Built In LA’s 50 Startups to Watch in 2020.

About Finli
Finli is an Los Angeles-based, VC-backed fintech startup devoted to helping neighborhood schools digitize their business. Our service enhances the lives of modern families and the small, but mighty neighborhood businesses that need technology to grow and maintain their businesses. We have a growing team of over 10 people including three full time engineers. To learn more, visit our website.

What to Expect
We’re an early stage startup, so we’re looking for candidates who excel at wearing multiple hats, solving urgent problems, and getting things done when there are uncertain variables. The engineer we are looking for can balance managing technical teams, understand and communicate variables around time, cost, and risk with business stakeholders, and manage a full workload of development. The ideal candidate understands and thrives in the startup environment of being both a strategic thinker and a doer; and doesn’t hesitate to perform helpdesk, sysadmin, and QA roles as are needed.

Flexible paid time off and choice of American or local holidays
Remote work with some flexibility on working hours
Funds to buy office equipment at home
Potential travel to US or H-1B sponsorship
