About the team:

  • We work in cross-functional, autonomous teams. We follow continuous delivery best practices executed on top of a modern technology stack.
  • Our products are built for developers, by developers. Technological excellence is at the heart of what we do.
  • We are pragmatic and customer focused. We strive to find the right set of trade-offs in order to validate our hypothesis as early as possible, iterating on our products based on customer feedback.
  • We communicate transparently. We do weekly all hands where we get together to discuss company performance and goals.
  • We are a flexible international team focused on creating cool stuff. Some of us prefer to work together in one of our offices and others prefer remote. For us there's no difference as long as you have an excellent internet connection and are able to overlap with the team between 3pm and 6pm, CEST timezone.
  • Also we are backed by some of the leading investors in Silicon Valley and Latin America, including Founders Fund, Kaszek Ventures and YCombinator.

Your challenge:

The experience team is building applications and services that expose end-users' financial information through a set of public-facing, easy to use APIs. In addition to that, we take care of the Developer Experience through documentation, SDKs, examples and other developer-facing tools.

  • Develop our client-facing APIs, especially as we add data sources, endpoints or a new product altogether. Build excellent documentation, SDKs, client libraries. Continuously improve the "developer experience" of Belvo's platform.
  • Be customer-focused, think as a user of our APIs. Proactively tackle potential improvements and customer pain points.
  • Carefully manage API retro compatibility, document API changes and implement deprecation plans.
  • Implement automated quality assurance and monitoring modules.

You can be part of the gang if:

  • Degree in Computer Science or equivalent working experience
  • Strong experience designing and developing RESTful APIs
  • Working experience programming in Python. Django is a plus.
  • Track record of producing A-grade documentation for public consumption
  • Detail-oriented developer, coding so others can read and work with your code
  • Willingness to solve challenging problems

Amazing if:

  • Fintech and SaaS past experience
  • Experience with techniques and tools for crawling, extracting and processing data
  • Relevant programming knowledge in other languages such as Javascript, Java, PHP, Ruby or Go.
  • Experience building large-scale platforms with global reach.

Our tech stack:

  • We’re building our platform using modern technologies, putting the focus on reliability and long-term maintainability
  • We primarily use Python on the backend. We use battle-tested technologies such as Django, and we are heavy users of Python’s asyncio for some parts of our stack
  • We use Javascript, Vue.js and Sass on the frontend. We are developing and leveraging our own design system and component library
  • We run our infrastructure on top of Amazon Web Services, leveraging managed services. We tend to favor the use of managed services wherever possible, in order to focus on our business problems
  • We observe and monitor our services using Datadog
  • We follow Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery best practices
