Job Description

This company used a simple but efficient tech-stack which includes, Scala, AWS, Kubernetes, and Slick.  

My client is helping millions of Americans manage their finances better and ensure they avoid getting into debt. Their driving factor is helping people live a better life and remove the worries of financial pressures. They are currently embarking on an exciting project to redesign their backend architecture. You will help guide technology decisions as well as tackle large implementations yourself.

  • Generous PTO 
  • 401k matching 
  • Paid personal development 
  • Health, dental and vision benefits 
  • Visa transfer if required

  • Experience with distributed systems 
  • Previously implemented and deployed microservices
