On the other hand, you'll be constantly working to improve the performance of our talented New York based engineering team, while maintaining their focus on executing our technical roadmap.

In additon, you’ll work closely with other teams like Product and Data Science and will instrumental in influencing our product vision.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, user-facing experiences, services, and systems
  • Engineer solutions across systems such as money-movement infrastructure, fraud management systems, and data pipelines
  • Assembling, and enabling an incredible team of engineers who have high expectations around ownership, efficiency and impact
  • Mentoring and nurturing your team of engineers; supporting their goal setting, achievement and career advancement
  • Working closely with our CTO and product team to establish priorities and manage our technical roadmap

The ideal candidate should demonstrate the following:

  • 8+ years of software development experience and 5+ years of technical leadership experience

  • 3+ years experience leading the development of highly scalable systems with strong expertise in event-based systems and serverless architectures
  • Ability to hold the team to high standards for security and data privacy practices
