About the role

Imagine the possibilities in fin-tech if we remove >90% of the friction in the flow of money and financial data. Imagine the amazing innovations that can happen!

Decentro is an extremely easy to use and plug-and-play API banking platform for financial integrations in India (and soon beyond). We are looking to empower the developer community of fintech, platforms, aggregators, and even corporates.

Responsibilities -

  1. As a Developer Community Evangelist, you will connect with other developers, contribute to our feature pipeline, and share our cutting-edge work externally on conferences, events, meetups, blogs, and more.

  2. As a team, we collaborate and connect with communities that love technology and finance as much as we do. Our team is looking to interact with developers across the country (and soon beyond) at conferences as well as online, and co-create new features and APIs for the ecosystem.

  3. Be an active and authentic participant in the developer community wherever they gather online and offline. For many of those developers, you will be the "face" for Decentro - the person who they ping when they need help. And when someone who works at Decentro needs to talk to developers in the developer community, they'll come to you.

  4. Create content that breaks down the complex into the simple while telling stories with code, equipping developers with knowledge of tools and techniques, including but not limited to fintech, that makes them better at their craft.

  5. Additionally, you will work closely with the founder and the marketing team to lay out a plan for how to grow our brand awareness and usage.

  6. You might even find yourself starting new communities in India to serve Indian developers in a new way. In a lot of ways, you will be an entrepreneur leading the way for future developer evangelists in the country.

Requirements -

  1. You are a web developer and understand the fundamentals of the HTTP request and response cycle

  2. Have written enough Python, PHP, Node, C# (.NET), or Java code to have opinions on the different web frameworks of a specific programming language, or even across multiple programming languages

  3. Love to teach others and understand that teaching sometimes requires much patience, but are driven by the immense satisfaction of seeing the light bulb go off in your students' heads

  4. You are endlessly curious about and excited by technology and know that there are usually smarter folks in the room and you're eager to learn from them

  5. You must have excellent reading comprehension, listening, and writing skills in English.

What we offer -

  1. The ability for you to make an impact and lay a foundation for the upcoming fin-tech innovations.

  2. A multicultural and diverse team of colleagues from different states that speak in total 6 Indian and global languages.

  3. Progressive and flexible work hours that match your personality and lifestyle.

  4. The best-in-class perks and benefits for developers. Check out our careers page for the same: https://decentro.tech/careers/

Part of YCombinator Summer batch 2020, we're a contrarian and progressive culture of independent thinkers and systematic executors that are driven to build cool things that matter.

Why you should join Decentro

Almost all the fin-tech companies face a number of hidden challenges -

  • Making the choice of the first bank for integration and the APIs within.
  • Lack of a single POC in the banks / financial / KYC institutions to avoid running around between departments to get APIs and solutions.
  • Testing and reaching product-market fit quickly & cheaply
  • The choice of banking/financial license (if any) to go to market

Imagine the possibilities in Fin-tech if we remove >90% of the friction in the flow of money and financial data. Imagine the amazing innovations that can happen!

We want to be the go-to the platform where all of you can come, plug in the data, play around and launch with the desired APIs and modular SDKs to go live within days (instead of months). No need to run around and waste 5-6 months to integrate with banking/legacy BFSI / government partners. Not only that, but we also take care of the upcoming fixes, iterations, and updates without breaking any flow.
