As our VP of Engineering, you will build a team, implement best engineering practices, hop on integration calls, and be a leader when it comes to feature development and architecture design. You also aren't afraid to get your hands dirty and dive into the code yourself. We are currently a small, tight-knit team, so strong communication skills are a must.

You'll be responsible for:

  • Leading design and implementation of new features and iterations of our core platform
  • Owning our product roadmap
  • Ensuring smooth integrations with all of our card issuer partners and merchant partners
  • Developing Kard's core infrastructure to be scalable and reliable
  • Guiding our current engineers and continuing to build out a team
  • Designing new iterations of our internal APIs
  • Protecting the credentials to access Kard’s (and customer's, where applicable) networks, systems and data.
  • Maintaining the confidentiality of all Kard’s customer data to which you are granted access and reporting any suspected compromises of Kard’s proprietary data or customer data
  • Adhering to Kard’s Information Security Policy and Procedures

You have experience:

  • Running a live product supporting millions of customers
  • Working with financial institutions, their technology, and their transaction data
  • Building web applications, with extensive experience in Javascript (we use Node, Angular and React)
  • Using NoSQL databases (we use MongoDB)
  • Building scalable, reliable distributed systems intended for cloud deployments (AWS preferred)
  • Leading and building an engineering organization, preferably in finance

Bonus points:

  • Experience handling transaction data (Yes, we're mentioning it twice!)
  • Startup experience
  • Expertise in ML and/or AI

Our values:

  • Drive. We are building big things, and it takes dedication and hard work to do that.
  • Integrity. We take consumer trust seriously, and we hold ourselves to the highest standards.
  • Creativity. We want the unconventional, whatever-it-takes mentality that achieves different results.

We offer:

  • Equity. We believe in what we’re building.
  • Benefits. We aim to be the healthiest versions of ourselves and cover medical, dental, vision, and 401k.
  • Space. We take time off to recharge, physically and mentally.
  • Growth. We invest in our future by investing in your future.
  • Support. We help each other in pursuit of our mission and spend time bonding as a team.
  • Equality. We celebrate differences and are committed to building a team of unique perspectives. Kard is proud to be an equal opportunity employer
