About the role:

Our client is a Series A company that is growing quickly and is looking for experienced backend engineers to work on their platform and infrastructure. This is the software that’s core to everything they do from payments and banking, to on and offboarding employees, to handling custom logic and changing rules, to powering client apps.

In this role, you’ll join our backend engineering team and work closely with frontend engineering and operations teams. You’ll build and ship new capabilities for backend services, which lets us move fast and deliver a great product, despite the complexity and constant change that define our space.
