About the role

About the job

Today, hundreds of financial institutions - from the world's largest asset managers to the most ambitious banks and fintech companies - use Nova to convert their paperwork into intelligent workflows, automate their compliance, and work together with service providers on the Nova network. Our mission is to accelerate the world's transition to an autonomous financial system and we have an incredible amount of work ahead. That means you have an unprecedented opportunity to rearchitect the fabric of our financial infrastructure while doing the most important work of your career.

Nova is, at its heart, an engineering company. We maintain an extremely high bar for the quality of what we create and how we interact, and we won't sacrifice that for the quantity of output. We think about creating the best user experience first and work backward from there.

We’re looking for people with a strong background in building successful products and systems. You’re used to dealing with lots of moving parts, you have exquisite attention to detail, and you’re comfortable learning new technologies where needed.

Our stack consists primarily of Typescript, Scala, Rust, React, GraphQL, PostgresQL, and Kubernetes.

What will you be doing?

  • Own entire product lines from architecture to implementation
  • Work with a wide range of systems, processes, and technologies
  • Uphold our high engineering standards and bring consistency to the many codebases and processes you will encounter
  • Work closely with the executive team to improve engineering processes and explore new products.

What does success look like in this role?

  • Solid engineering fundamentals and passion for high-quality code
  • Familiarity with type-driven development and functional programming
  • Experience with web application security best practices
  • Product intuition, user empathy, ability to make sound UX decisions
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills

It's even better if:

  • You've worked at an early-stage startup
  • You've built side projects and/or contributed to open source
  • You have experience both building and breaking tools, and instilling security best-practices in engineering teams
  • You have a cross-functional skill outside of engineering
  • You are located in the NYC Metropolitan area

Why you should join Nova

Nova's mission is to create a new world without paperwork. We're starting by building the operating system for business transactions. We’re based in Brooklyn, New York and are funded by top investors including Y Combinator, Coinbase Ventures, Justin Kan (founder of Twitch.tv and Atrium), and more.
