Staff Engineer - Backend

San Francisco or Remote /
Engineering /
Full time
If you have worked on robust, highly-available, distributed systems or data pipelines, we would love to chat. Ideally, you'll also love instrumenting and operating the services you build. We use JS/TS/Node, OCaml, queueing, databases and public clouds, but if you're a good fit for us, you'll be able to figure this out quickly anyway, and help inform the technical decisions we make. We are also very keen to chat if you have a background in security engineering.

You don't need to have experience of fintech or crypto, though that is valuable, but you will be passionate about financial inclusion and building a service with global reach.
