SumZero is hiring a junior developer to join our dedicated, internal engineering team.

We’re looking for a self-starter who’s willing to get their hands dirty and is capable of not only learning from the team, but contributing new ideas early and often. We are a small engineering team (5 engineers) who emphasize feature ownership and iterative development.

The position requires regular interaction with engineering team members, the product group, and key business team members. A willingness to dive deeply into the product by experiencing it through the User’s perspective is a must. We don’t expect you to know much about finance, and we’re always excited to teach you about it.

Core Responsibilities:

Deliver readable, maintainable, and tested code.
Foster good engineering and coding practices within the team.
Maintain and improve our AWS infrastructure.
Own individual products.
Collaborate with other engineers, product, and sales to tackle interesting problems.

Requirements:

Proficiency with at least one technology in our stack
Familiarity with Javascript fundamentals
Familiarity with one OO language (Ruby, Python, Java, etc.)
SQL skills
Exceptional communication skills

Nice to Haves (but not at all required):

Background in or interest in finance
Analytics/Data Processing Experience
Something that makes you interesting and different (we like people who have something to contribute outside the obvious)
