Location: Austin
Posted on: May 25, 2023

Job Description:

Self Financial is a venture-backed, high-growth FinTech company with a mission to increase economic inclusion and financial resilience by empowering people to build credit and build savings.

We're looking for people who share our passion and are driven to tackle challenges, find solutions and make the financial space better for the communities we serve.

Our team is passionate about challenging the status quo of the credit industry by providing people accessible tools to take control of their credit. Executing on our mission requires deep collaboration across our teams to ensure our products reach the people who can benefit from them the most, particularly the 100 million+ Americans who have no or low credit.

We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. To that end, we seek to recruit, develop and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool.

What you'll bring:

5+ 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

SQL and relational databases such as PostgreSQL

Experience in the container space such as Docker

Experience with common software engineering tools such as Git (or other VCS), Jira, Confluence, and similar platforms

And these skills are a bonus:

Experience with AWS and other related cloud architectures/services is a plus

Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related technical discipline

Our interview process at Self is designed to let you get to know us as much as for us to get to know you!

You'll meet with someone from our Recruiting team so we can learn more about you and answer some of your questions.

You'll meet with the Hiring Manager to learn more about the team, and the role, and get to tell us more about what you'd bring to the team

You'll meet team members who will be your peers to help you get a feel for a "real day in the life" at Self.

Benefits and Perks:

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. We are a team of Builders, empowering our customers to build their dreams. We have a Do the Right Thing ethos in all that we do, and we hope you value that approach, too.

Our perks include:

Company Equity in the form of RSUs

Quarterly performance-based bonuses

Generous employer-paid health, vision and dental insurance coverage

Flexible vacation policy

Educational assistance

Free gym membership

Casual dress code

Team building events and activities

Remote work arrangements/ flexible work schedule

Paid parental leave

Self Financial requires all employees hired to successfully pass a background check.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
