Senior Software Engineer

What we’re building:

Greenlight helps parents raise financially-smart kids with a debit card for kids that parents manage from their phone. The new way for parents to give money and pay allowances to their children, Greenlight is safer, easier, and more flexible than using cash. Parents can choose the exact stores where their kids can spend and how much money they can spend. With these safeguards and supervision, kids learn to make their own financial decisions. Parents can encourage saving by setting an interest rate--paid by the parent--that is well-above any they would find at a bank. Kids learn about compound interest from seeing their own savings grow meaningfully. To-date, kids have saved over $5M with Greenlight.

Technologies we use:

  • Node.js, Java
  • React, Redux, Swift, Kotlin
  • REST, gRPC
  • AWS
  • MySQL, DocumentDB, Redis
  • Kubernetes, Ambassador

Who we’re looking for:

You are a backend engineer with a strong background or interest in building scalable systems and services. You understand application design and development, but you also understand and want to participate in the deployment and operational phases of the SDLC. You are comfortable working in a fast moving, high growth environment, and you want to do more than write code.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Design, build, and maintain platform APIs and services across the Greenlight platform
  • Enhance existing services and applications to increase availability, reliability, and scalability in a microservices environment
  • Work across the engineering team to build new features and services at scale
  • Improve engineering tooling, process, and standards to enable faster, more consistent, more reliable, and highly repeatable application delivery
  • Remain engaged with latest technology trends and understand operational challenges to continually evolve application delivery processes and platform components
  • Support platform technology decisions based on performance metrics and operational SLAs
  • Provide guidance and best practices around security for applications and platform infrastructure

You bring:

  • BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent, Masters degree preferred
  • 6+ years software development experience
  • Experiencing working on a large scale product in Java or Node
  • The ability to ship mission critical systems with high confidence
  • Understand the benefits of microservices, but also understand the challenges they bring and current trends on how to address those challenges
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
