About the role

Who we are

Small and medium businesses (SMBs) make up over 90% of companies, yet they face a trillion-dollar credit gap. At R2, we believe that small and medium businesses are the productive engine of society.

Our mission is to unlock their potential by providing financial solutions that are tailored to their needs. We are reimagining the economic infrastructure of Latin America - where SMBs financial needs are satisfied without ever having to go to a bank.

We integrate with some of the largest technology platforms in Latin America and embed tailored financial services that SMBs can then leverage. As a Senior Software Engineering , we’re looking for a leader who can design highly scalable systems, integrate our systems to various third-party platforms, promote a culture of technical learning, and push junior teammates to grow into formidable engineers.

What you’ll work on

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems across R2
  • Own the product and solution architecture
  • Ensure best practices and uptime
  • Contribute to company-wide standards and reliability
  • Ensure delivery of mission critical systems with tight deadlines
  • Increase the quality of your technical team both by hiring and coaching junior developers
  • Build core infrastructure for our tech team
  • Establish and improve our CI/CD pipeline
  • Research and invest in new tooling to improve services
  • Think about security throughout everything you do
  • Promote a culture that fosters learning, growth, risk taking, and accountability
  • Work with other teams to figure out how to build tools to make them more productive

Who you are

  • 5+ years of full-stack engineering experience, with an appetite to code on a daily basis but looking to lead and grow junior talent
  • Experience with frontend and backend architecture patterns, including microservices.
  • Familiar with latest UI technologies such as React, GraphQL, Server-side rendering, etc.
  • Recent experience programming in Python or Java/Kotlin
  • Experience in designing and implementing robust data models for production, in SQL DBs (PostgreSQL, etc.) and/or NoSQL (MongoDB, DynamoDB, etc.)
  • Experience in containers (Docker, Compose, Kubernetes)
  • Experience in CI/CD pipelines (Jenkins, GoCD, Concourse, etc.)
  • Experience building integrations with various platforms is a big plus.
