Job Description

Success in this role requires moving quickly to build and ship production-ready code iteratively. You will work closely with both the CTO and CEO.

What you’ll do

  • Plan the technical roadmap with the CTO. Make architectural decisions, scalability/performance engineering, security/privacy efforts, and release plans. 

  • Go Agile! And ensure tech documentation for all your work so our future devs can be happy :) 

  • Manage live system operations, including system upgrades

  • Help recruit a broader engineering team - we are about to close a large seed round and will start hiring superstar engineers!

  • Identify, recommend and implement technical partnerships with third-party technical partners, suppliers, and vendors

  • Co-Design the architecture for the Gaya API 

  • Help us reach SOC2 compliance/ensure all our portals respond to the highest grade security compliance

 

Who we’re looking for 

  • 5 years of engineering experience, working with teams focused on building and shipping robust, high-quality, production-ready products (Fintech or Insurtech is a plus)

  • Proficient technical knowledge on the back-end, cloud (AWS, Heroku), and integration technologies and best practices at scale. 

  • Successful track record of working with high-performing, healthy, and sustainable teams that have addressed complex technical and organizational challenges 

  • Ability to work in a fast-moving startup organization with data-driven results in mind 

 

What's In It For You

  • You'll get to experience all phases of a growing startup. You will get exposure to our fundraising, team building, culture development, and more

  • Gaya is a remote-first company! You can be located anywhere in the U.S.

  • Competitive salary and generous equity incentive plan 

  • Great Benefits: Flexible PTO, health insurance, 401k, technology allowance
