We are looking for an Engineering Manager to join our growing engineering team and be responsible for our backend integration systems as we scale, and the personal development of the engineers working on them. As a key leader, you will shape the evolution of our team, and foster an encouraging, inclusive and hard-working environment. Initially, you will lead 4-5 engineers, and will have time to do hands-on work on interesting technical problems. You will work closely with Product, Operations, Customer Support, Growth and other functions to help the team design and build out a reliable, performant, and secure platform for handling remittances across countries.
Our product is a cross-platform mobile app developed with React Native and TypeScript, which talks to a backend service written in Kotlin and backed by a PostgreSQL database, all of which runs on AWS and is managed via Terraform and Ansible.
We’re an encouraging environment that values both teamwork and autonomy, and have many exciting upcoming challenges, including: scaling up to handle increased volume and complexity, helping our analysts derive business and product insights to drive growth and retention, building internal tools for our customer support and acquisition efforts, and much more!
