About the role

Important Note: While we’re a remote-first company, at this stage we want to have our team working on similar timezones. Please only apply if you are in the Americas timezone.


As a Full Stack Engineer of the Valari team, you will build web applications and SDKs to make developers integrating with Valari more productive. In this role you will build innovative payment products that delight developers, compliance officers and financial controllers.

Valari is building a unified plaform to enable any tech company to offer a bank’s financial services to their end customers in LatAm. Our APIs, SDKs and Dashboards are the tools to manage the relationship between any tech company and a regulated bank.

Your contributions will sit at the core of our Program Management, Compliance and Reconciliation workflows. There are many technical challenges building a fully compliant, user-friendly and integrated money movement platform at scale. We certainly hope this challenge is exciting for you. Also, as an early member of the engineering team, you will help shape the engineering culture of a fast-growing startup.

About Us

Valari is a technology company that operates in a highly fragmented market that is ripe for disruption. While in the US, there are more than 5000 banks, in Mexico there are less than 80 fully regulated banks. We have a partnership with a national chartered bank in Mexico, which allows us our customers to issue debit, credit, investment and insurance products compliantly through our platform.

Our customers range from B2B software companies, marketplaces, neobanks and consumer applications. By partnering with Valari they can quickly launch embedded financial products such as bank accounts, cards, payments and lending to their users. Our customers own the user experience and have little regulatory overhead, while generating revenue for the transactions they initiate in our platform.

About the interview

We do a 30 minutes phone call to learn about your background and answer any questions you have about the role. Then, we follow with a system design interview, where you work together with some of our team members to design a scalable solution and have a chance to work collaboratively with someone in our team. Nothing to worry about, the objective of this interview is to work together on a solution to designing a system. We're looking to learn how you think about different architecture decisions and that you can clearly think about the tradeoffs that there are. Finally, there is a behavioural interview so you can meet our CEO and ask anything that’s on your mind.

About Valari
