Rize is looking for a full-time Backend Engineer with Ruby on Rails experience to work in our Arlington, VA office right across from the Courthouse Metro!

At Rize, we’re building the banking platform of the future. One that unifies spending, saving, and investing in ways current banks can't. We've built a truly differentiated product capable of independently managing multiple pools of money across different account types. Rize intelligently helps customers achieve their financial goals and is easily customized for audiences ranging from millennials to retirees.

We’ve already taken the first steps: In 2017, we created a unified saving and investing platform. In the process, we accumulated thousands of beta testers on the platform with fantastic engagement metrics. We’ve accomplished a lot so far, but we’re just getting started. Now we need a hard-working and creative backend engineer to help us execute the next phase of our roadmap.



A talented Mid to Senior level Rails engineer to join our 4-person backend engineering team. You are a quick study on existing code and are able to find new technologies and tools to help build software. You get excited about building something from the ground up and having a say right from the get-go.

You should be able to solve problems using creative solutions and implement them effectively. You should have extensive experience building out APIs and you should feel right at home designing complicated data models that will meet the needs of a growing platform. You will help build the engine that runs Rize and make sure it can handle whatever it needs to haul. You should be excited about cutting-edge software development and your work should reflect that. If you want to look back in 10 years at a company that had a huge positive impact on the financial industry and say, “I helped build that”, then this might be the right role for you.
