Current banking systems don't let us send, spend or receive money across borders easily. Or quickly. Or cheaply.

So, we're building a new one.

And, we're looking for a strong Lead Engineer with experience in microservices and testing to join our team in Austin.

Your mission:

In this role, you'll work together with our Engineers and lead cross-team efforts to improve productivity in our Engineering organization. This means deep-diving into the challenges faced by our different teams, identifying patterns and working to create and maintain company-wide tools to help our teams ensure high quality releases. You'll help build capability programs to empower our teams to solve their own challenges.

A bit about you:

  • You're passionate about helping others and keen to roll up your sleeves and take ownership to drive company-wide impact
  • You have experience with good testing practices in a microservices architecture
  • You've got a deep understanding of Continuous Delivery strategies in a microservice architecture
  • You're flexible to work on different kinds of projects. You'll be working on a wide range of projects from collecting delivery performance metrics to identifying patterns and coding internal tools to boost productivity
  • You have strong communication skills and the ability to articulate complex and technical concepts across multiple teams
  • You're willing to travel and interested in working with and learning from our Engineers across our global offices
  • You're excited to work in a disruptive, fast-growing and fun environment

Some extra skills that would be great to have:

  • You've worked with large distributed systems
  • You've got a Java background, preferably with Spring Boot
  • Experience with Kubernetes is a plus

…but don't worry we don't expect you to know everything!

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your own path to success - you'll have the freedom to define the vision and the responsibility for making it happen
  • Be flexible in how and where you work, we understand everyone needs a little something different so we'll do our best to make it happen
  • Travel to work with our teams in our offices around the world
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude
