Senior Backend Software Engineer

Company: Self Financial, Inc.
Location: Austin
Posted on: February 22, 2021

Job Description:

Engineering Austin, Texas, United States Full time Self Financial, Inc. is a venture-backed, financial services startup based in Austin, TX. At Self, our mission is to help millions of people build credit and save money on their journey toward financial security. There are about 100 million people in the US who have low credit scores or who have no access to credit at all. Sadly, there aren't many options for these people. Most banks aren't doing anything material to change the situation because it's not profitable for them to do so. Bad credit or no credit history can be barriers to renting an apartment or getting certain jobs, let alone buying a car or house. And if you can get a loan with a low credit score, you're very likely to pay a lot more in interest over the life of that loan. If you are someone who is equally passionate as we are, we want to chat with you.
About our team:
We're a growing team of passionate engineers working with modern technology to help people build credit and savings. We've rebuilt and launched our website and our mobile app in the last year, which now serves thousands of customers. We launched our second product, a secured credit card to give our customers access to their savings. About the role:
You will be joining a team that is developing a banking core. You will develop the services and infrastructure needed to provide essential customer-facing solutions at a massive scale. You will work with your lead, product owner and your product manager to build tools and systems required for us to service our financial products to our large customer base. You will report to an engineering manager and work with our amazing team of professional engineers.
Requirements Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related technical discipline.
  • 4+ years of software engineering experience.
  • Solid understanding and application of computer science fundamentals: data structures, algorithms and design patterns.
  • Experience with the development of Python/Flask code in a production environment.
  • Experience with SQL and relational databases such as PostgreSQL.
  • Experience in the container space such as Docker.
  • Experience with AWS and other related cloud architectures/services is a plus.
  • Experience with common software engineering tools such as Git (or other VCS), JIRA, confluence and similar platforms. We have the compensation and benefits you expect. But, there's one thing that Self Financial can offer that many startups cannot: we can positively change the world, while making a profit. Over 64 million adults in the U.S. do not have a credit score because of a lack of credit history. Self is solving this problem with creative technology solutions and partnerships.
    • Stock options
    • Generous employer-paid health, vision and dental insurance coverage
    • Enjoy our vacation policy - there is no policy, balance matters
    • Educational assistance
    • Plenty of snacks and drinks provided
    • Casual dress code
    • Team happy hours and events
    • Downtown Austin office space How we act with each other is how we act with our customers. We are direct, transparent and respectful, and we hope you embrace that approach. Self Financial requires all employees hired to successfully pass a background check. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer. Due to COVID-19, we're working from home until further notice (stay safe!).
      Self Financial does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, age, national origin, marital status, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other reason prohibited by law in provision of employment opportunities and benefits.
