What we do

Pave is building a Cashflow API that allows fintech developers and data scientists to connect their data sources and retrieve clean & unified insights into their consumers’ spending habits, bills, earnings profile, and account health.

We're abstracting the data cleaning and transformation efforts necessary to get a single view of a consumer’s finances so that fintech companies can rapidly build budgeting features, recommendations engines, risk models, and more.

We believe that by lowering the friction of extracting financial insights from the growing number of data sources, we can help accelerate the development of innovative and inclusive financial products. We’re on a mission to enable builders to reinvent and lower the cost of financial services.

Background

There are a growing number of companies helping people gain access to digital financial services, whether it’s low-interest loans, payment installment solutions, integrated insurance offerings, fee-less banking, personalized budgeting, wage advances, or investment solutions.

We believe financial services will exist for every consumer segment, especially underserved segments including female professionals, refugee communities, creators, immigrants, retirees, gig workers, and so forth. We are not original in this thought - this is already happening.

Building equitable financial services for underserved consumer segments requires expensive resources, infrastructure, and analysis into new types of datasets. However, the cost to clean, transform, and analyze these new datasets is high, and every company is forced to do the same bespoke work on the same data sources. This is significant time and cost, and impeding the mission around expanding financial inclusion.

We're 3x founders with a history of launching successful data products, and we're partnered with awesome fintech investors including Bessemer Ventures, Village Global, Better Tomorrow Ventures, 8VC, and execs from Coinbase, Chime, and Sofi.

The Role

At Pave, you will have the opportunity to help engineer the foundational systems, tools, and processes the next generation of fintech startups are being built upon. We’re constructing the insights layer that lives between raw fintech data sources and the applications ingesting them.

We’re looking for an experienced DevOps engineer who’s excited to collaborate closely with our rapidly growing engineering team, owning our infrastructure-as-code architecture and implementing security best practices.

You’ll be expected to work quickly as we build, improve, and push new features. We’re working on a modern stack and leverage industry best practices to deploy multiple times per day and go through fast iterations on our product. From day one, you will be establishing best practices and setting the direction of our infrastructure as we grow.


The Team

We’re a 12 person team of hungry, mission driven individuals bent on leveling the playing field of financial services. We’re a small team (though not for long!) looking for someone with strong programming skills to have an active hand in defining our company’s culture.


Some initiatives you will help lead:

    • Build and manage foundational infrastructure that enables our product to scale efficiently
    • -- Automate CI/CD Pipelines with Github Actions
      -- Identify opportunities to make the team more efficient, for example by improving the developer tools
      -- Lead implementation of advanced deployment strategies (e.g. blue green) to enable our strategy of safely shipping the product multiple times per day
    • Own our infrastructure-as-code implementations
    • -- Manage our AWS infrastructure
      -- Maintain our Terraform templates and TF Cloud workspaces
      -- Support our EKS cluster and associated RBAC permissions
    • Work to define and improve monitoring and metrics to evaluate our API
    • -- Implement and execute rigorous performance tests (optimizing for uptime and efficiency)
      -- Fine-tune our Kubernetes deployments accordingly (# of nodes, # of replicas, # of Gunicorn workers…)
    • Help fine-tune, operate and maintain some of the tooling and data infrastructure we will invest in soon
    • -- Messaging systems/queues
      -- Data processing
      -- Workflow orchestration and related infrastructure
    • Own our SOC2 and security initiatives
    • -- Ensure our stack is utilizing security best practices with respect to access, encryption, and maintenance

You’ll be a great fit if:

    • You’re a team player, always ready to review pull requests and give feedback
    • You’re a self-starter who is eager to ship code
    • You’re excited to be involved in all aspects of the product
    • You’re scrappy! You love proactively finding solutions to problems and you’ve got a get-it-done mindset
