Super app to make easy the access to financial products

Senior Software Engineer

€40k – €60k
Apply now

In Lana we want to provide accessible financial services through technology to traditionally underserved customers in LATAM, starting with gig-economy workers.

To do so, we have created a platform with an app that allows users to get access to tailored-made financial services in one single place and take control of their money to do great things with it.

Lana is currently operating in Mexico and Chile, but we have created a technological platform that would help us start operations in other countries in LATAM very soon.

We closed our funding round early this year that would allow us to improve our technology, expand our product offering, and continue growing and expanding into new markets

Would you like to join us in this challenge?

About the role,

Lana’s engineering team is still young (15 - 20 engineers) but it is growing very fast and needs to have clear architectural guidelines to make sure that all pieces work together.

We are still at a very early stage as a company, so all our positions are hands-on positions, and we expect from all team members to contribute to agile product delivery.

We are looking for a Senior Engineer Lead that is willing to take the challenge of bringing Lana’s architecture to the next level while supporting/coaching his peers (engineers, product managers…) to understand it so they can make decisions that are more in line with the architecture, and with the business needs.

This is a hands-on role so you will also be assigned to a team and will have to develop critical services enforcing our architecture guidelines.

As we mentioned we are quite early-stage company, so it's a great opportunity to make your mark from the very beginning. Your decisions will affect how the company moves in the future.

About you

We’re looking for a talented and experienced engineer with a proven track record on implementing / managing complex distributed architectures in startups / scale-ups.

You would enjoy this if you have:
Interest in solving business problems by using technology
Entrepreneurial mindset
Solid experience as an engineer (>5 years)

Experience in distributed and complex systems

Architect solutions around observability, scalability, and security
(Nice to have) Experience in fintech or financial services

Who are you?

You are socially conscious and consider your job as a mean to have an impact
You are humble and eager to learn
You are interested in understanding the business
You prefer leading by example than imposition
You are proactive to take on responsibilities, make decisions and always have solid arguments
You can defend your ideas but are flexible and empathetic to understand other’s positions
You strive to "work yourself out of a job", by empowering each team to become self-managing and autonomous
You know how to make tradeoffs. You translate ideas and needs into actionable plans at various levels (roadmaps, milestones, tasks, etc.).
You can help our engineers be more efficient at performing their jobs through best practices
You are comfortable communicating in English (spoken and written).
You are able to work from a European or American time zone.

This of course is not a comprehensive list that you have to match 100% but just a general guideline, if you don't fit all of it, apply anyway!


We’re a company full of happy, motivated people and we never want to change that. Here are some more reasons why to join us:

Flexible working hours and full remote is up to you!
Along with your local paid vacation plus all the public holidays, you will have half a day on your birthday and child's birthday.
Other benefits :)
Fun team and personal development programs.
(If you join us in a city where we have an office) Nice office environment with free fruit and coffee.
Any additional benefit approved by Lana’s board for your employee tier.
Great team and culture, just bring yourself!!!
