Key responsibilities include:

  • Developing REST API endpoints for our web and mobile apps
  • Keeping our application secure
  • Making sure our application can scale without downtime
  • Develop backend with existing database, as well as design new schemas as needed

Current Tech Stack

You don’t need to have experience with all the technologies in our stack. That said, we are looking for someone who’s familiar with most of these elements, and can learn the rest quickly.

Our current stack is already fully functional. We’ll help you get up to speed on the current stack, and you’ll take charge from there.

Here’s our current tech stack:

  • Python
  • Flask
  • MongoDB and PyMongos
  • JWT for authentication & session management
  • AWS - EC2, S3, IAM, SES, Secrets Manager
  • External APIs: Plaid, Twilio

Day-to-Day Culture

We are a remote-first culture. Here’s how we work:

  • Sprints: We work in 1 week sprints. We sprint plan on Mondays, and do retrospectives on Fridays.
  • Daily Standup: We do a 30 minute call each morning to kick off the day.
  • Hours: We work weekdays. You can set your own schedule, as long as you’re online for the daily standup at 8:30am PT.
  • Task & Bug Tracking:We use Trello to track tasks.
  • Slack: We use Slack to communicate in between meetings.
  • Design: We use Figma for design. Engineers are welcomed to give feedback on the design process.
  • Customer Interviews: We frequently interview customers on how they use the product. Engineers are welcome to be part of the interview + product iteration process.
  • Remote First: All key decisions are made via Zoom, Trello, and Slack. In person meetings are viewed as a relationship builder or for brainstorming, but are viewed as a supplement to our virtual meetings.
