Software Engineer at Weav
About the role
As one of the first engineers at Weav, you will shape both our codebase and our culture. We are looking for individuals who are excited about building robust and scalable backend systems while also being flexible to customer needs. We are a small and fast-moving team and expect engineers to take ownership of their work from testing to deployment. We believe in the importance of mentorship and professional development, so if you join us, you can expect to build strong relationships with our experienced leadership and tight-knit engineering team.
🔎 Who we’re looking for:
- You are excited about building fintech infrastructure to handle the data and analysis of businesses worldwide
- You are interested in contributing to the product feedback loop from design through implementation
- You are thrilled about working in a fast-paced startup environment
💻 Skills and qualities that help you succeed:
- You have 2+ years building and shipping backend features and maintaining production infrastructure; familiarity with Python / Go is a plus
- You have experience working with MySQL in production
- You know the importance of writing tests and you QA your code before release
- You're a great communicator and can give and receive feedback constructively
- You have experience integrating with third-party APIs
💪 A few perks of working with us:
- We take care of our team: In addition to a fair and competitive salary, we give everyone — regardless of role or seniority — equity in the company. For us, this isn’t just about attracting the best people or incentive alignment, it is core to our ethos of financial inclusion. We believe that Weav can only succeed if our team succeeds, and we want the reverse to be true as well. We also provide health insurance, including dependent coverage, and parental leave because we know our team can only do their best work if they feel financially secure.
- We are remote friendly: Rather than restrict ourselves to talent in one city, we want to find the absolute best people regardless of where they live. We offer a stipend to spruce up your home office and provide access to a global WeWork membership. Our remote-first culture also means our team members can travel to and work from anywhere!
- But we love meeting in person (when it is safe to do so!): To build great relationships across our team, we meet up quarterly in exciting locales. We prefer to invest in memorable team events over expensive offices. While we are still dealing with the constraints of Covid, we've been using our creativity to keep our team's bonds strong. (Zoom happy hours get a bad rap, but our virtual game nights receive rave reviews!)
- And we take time to recharge: We encourage everyone on the team to create balance in their lives. We know we can only consistently contribute our best if we take care of ourselves. We provide unlimited vacation days and we encourage each other to actually make use of them.
