Our engineering approach
We value good engineering principles and healthy curiosity. We take a conservative approach to using external frameworks and we aspire to write simple, well-tested code, delivered in rapid iterations.
Bonus fist-bumps 👊 if you have
How we work
We work in "squads" – a more startup-appropriate name for saying small, cross-functional teams. Each squad has a mission and a set of KPIs to monitor and improve. We have 3 of these squads right now – Savings, Investments and Black Ops. As an engineer youll work in a squad but you can also reach out to and work with anyone in the company.
Our culture: openness and accountability
Even though youll have a primary role, you can get involved in any aspect of the business youre interested in and contribute feedback and product ideas freely. In return, well expect you to back your decisions with data and logic. Features are considered finished when the data tells us that theyve moved the needle.
What we look for
Technical knowledge is critical but we are a startup treading in uncharted territory so attitude is even more important. Were looking for people that like uncertainty and want to figure out how to do things that haven’t been done before. Youre a true team player and inherently positive. Where others see problems, you see solutions.
