Is this the right opportunity for YOU? 

If you have the desired qualifications, below are reasons you should apply for this position.  

  • You'll build software that matters.  We make software that helps small businesses and entrepreneurs get the capital and financial services they need to succeed and support their local communities. 
  • You'll be part of an empowered agile team that operates like a start-up.  Your team decides the best technical approach and commitments, not your manager. 
  • You'll collaborate with super-smart people to build a next generation platform with plenty of challenging engineering problems, as we enable capabilities to transform the outdated financial banking system. 
  • You'll work on greenfield projects using the latest technology.  Our new platform will be based on Open APIs, NOSQL, NodeJS, native cloud and modern frontend technologies.  We’re still making a lot of decisions around the tech stack, meaning you could be a key influencer in the future of our technology.
