Front End Engineer at Levro (S21)
Multicurrency bank account for businesses
Remote
Full-time
About Levro

Levro is a new multicurrency business neobank. We help companies expand overseas by giving them the ability to hold, convert, and pay in/out of 30+ currencies using one account. Businesses can go global and hold $, €, £, ¥, etc., convert at better wholesale rates, pay in/out using local payment rails, and automate FX optimization.

About the role

About us:

At Levro (Y S21), our mission is to build the financial backbone for global commerce. We are building financial infrastructure to allow any company to frictionlessly expand to any country. We help companies avoid complex/costly conversions, by holding 30+ different currencies in one US bank account. This means they can receive and pay funds internationally as if they had a local bank account, and our FX conversion fees are 4-8x cheaper than traditional banks.

Opening a bank account abroad as a business can be really hard: it can take up to 6 months in the UK, and you often even need to fly to Canada to open a Canadian bank account! Once accounts are open, banks charge high fees to convert between currencies, and the setup can be complicated to administer.

We closed an oversubscribed seed round from incredible fintech investors and operators, including YCombinator and the founders of Yahoo, Eventbrite, Monzo and others. We're 2x YC founders and experienced operators - Cathy founded a big data SaaS business that processed over $4bn in transactions, and Abeer built a hedge fund with over $1.5bn in AUM. As immigrant founders, we want to build the best  global business bank, to give makers access to more markets and make finance as global as commerce.

Role Description:

As an early Senior Engineer, you’re sure to have a big impact! You’ll shape our product and technology direction, as well as support an engineering culture that empathizes with our customers, users, and other team members.

What You'll do:

  • Take our product from 0 to 1 by designing and implementing secure, highly scalable, and pragmatic technical solutions
  • Work closely with the founders to influence, develop, and implement product design and roadmap
  • Develop subject matter expertise in areas like international banking, card issuing, and machine learning for lending
  • Work directly with our customers to help them expand their companies around the globe
  • Pitch in on many surprising, daily challenges that come up in an early-stage start up

What We're Looking For:

  • 2+ years of software engineering experience
  • Coding skill in JavaScript on similar - we have a React Next JS frontend that interacts with a Python flask backend
  • Python experience is a big plus
  • We value the correctness, maintainability, elegance, and testability of code. We want to do things the right way over just getting things “done.” We’re strict about our code style and quality so that you don’t have to spend your time tracking down other peoples’ bugs.
  • Experience in working in financial services is nice, but by no means a requirement.

Our Tech Stack:

  • Python - we have a simple Flask backend, connected to a few other services, all in Python
  • AWS - Docker containers running on ECS
  • Frontend - HTML + CSS + NextJS

You’ll help define the rest of this list! We have plenty of ideas for what technologies make sense here, but we need your help to turn those ideas into product.

Technology

We use Flask, and React JS on the front end. We're completely dockerized and use AWS
