Fraud owns low-latency risk detection platforms, identity verification experiences, and everything in between. We are now hiring a senior software engineer to help drive impactful system changes such as: self-service features for risk detection, account security products (e.g. risk-based MFA), and in-product identity verifications (e.g. card scanning, ID photo upload). As a senior software engineer on the team you’ll work autonomously with partner teams and product management to build new products, lead internal and cross-team projects that drive company wide improvements, and lay the technical foundation for years to come. You’ll report to Jonah Glover, the Fraud engineering manager.

  • You'll design, build and maintain new scalable, distributed services in Kotlin or Go using technologies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), RDS, Dynamo, Neptune Graph DB, Queues, Streams and more.

  • You'll set the standard for engineering excellence with design, quality and long-term code maintainability within the team.

  • You'll break down large projects into milestones and stories that can be accomplished by more junior engineers.

  • You'll mentor more junior engineers, growing their autonomy and career

This role is good for you if you have:

  • A BS in Computer Science or equivalent professional experience.

  • 5+ years of experience as a software developer.

  • Experience building scalable services and distributed systems.

  • Experience driving technical designs within a team.

  • Expertise in one or more general purpose programming languages like Kotlin or Go.
