About the role

About Method

Method is a developer-first API that makes it easy for developers to connect a user's debts and embed debt repayment on their apps. Method works with over 15,000+ financial institutions enabling payments to any type of consumer debt – including credit cards, student loans, car loans, and mortgages – all through a single API. We manage the entire process, including KYC, linking a users debts, and flow of funds, allowing developers to go-live in an evening.

Our mission is to make personal debt management self-driven and autonomous. Method’s APIs empower users to view and pay debts on any platform, making personal debt management financial institution agnostic.

The Day-to-Day

  • Build with JavaScript across the platform. Build delightful user experiences in React and power them with a reliable backend in Node.

  • Own projects from end-to-end, make decisions on technical and business implications. You will have autonomy over your projects with support from the team when you need it.

  • Investigate and debug any issues using our monitoring & logging tools as well as create clear action items to resolve them.

  • Help maintain our high technical bar by participating in code reviews and interviewing new team members.

  • Collaborate with the rest of the team to define the roadmap by thoroughly understanding customers’ needs.

Skills You’ll Need

  • 2+ years of full-time software engineering experience.

  • Experience building scalable production-level applications. (A history of excellent projects is required)

  • Experience working with some combination of Node / JS, React (or similar framework), Postgres (or similar relational database), and MongoDB / NoSQL.

  • You can clearly communicate the concepts or ideas behind your solutions, and cut big solutions into smaller bite-sized tasks.

  • You can tow the line between moving fast and breaking things and moving slowly to get things right the first time. Technical debt is okay, we’ll refactor it later!

  • Natural curiosity to stay up to date with new technologies and emerging Fintech trends.

Bonus points if you’ve...

  • Experience in Finance / FinTech.

  • Knowledge of payment rails such as ACH, RTP, etc.

  • DevOps experience with AWS, Cloudflare, and CI/CD tools.

Benefits:

  • Home Office Stipend

  • Competitive Salary + Equity

  • Full Health Care

  • Remote First + Flexible Work Schedule
