About the role

About Method

Method is a developer-first API that makes it easy for developers to embed debt repayment on their apps. Method works with over 2,000+ 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, flow of funds, and banking partners, allowing developers to go-live in an evening.

We believe every company will become a payments company. Our mission is to simplify money movement for developers, creators, and entrepreneurs.

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

  • 5+ 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, FIS, etc.
  • DevOps experience with AWS, Cloudflare, and CI/CD tools.

Benefits:

  • Home Office Stipend
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Competitive Salary + Equity
  • Full Health Care
  • Remote First + Flexible Work Schedule
