About us

We’re a team of technologists and engineers — problem-solvers at heart. We founded Fasset because we saw a way to make finance fairer and more sustainable.

Investing has the power to transform people’s lives. We’re committed to making digital assets accessible right now to people in frontier markets who might otherwise get left out. We’re leading the way in these markets, breaking new ground in regulation and best practice. Our ‘final users’ — the kind of people we think could benefit the most from the alternative finance we’re building — are farmers and working-class people across the globe who might struggle to gain access to tools like loans and savings accounts. Too often these people are left out of the investment ecosystem and can only watch as their savings lose value over time. Fasset’s commitment to ethical finance enables them to invest in sustainable projects that are largely protected from the effects of inflation. A path that’s fairer, more sustainable, and available to all. The way finance should be.

You will work in a small team of engineers to build new web and mobile app experiences from the ground-up, as well as integrate new features. You are expected to be a hands-on developer who excels in a dynamic, fast-moving, and agile environment building high quality, high performance and scalable solutions. You will be expected to work equally between design and hands-on development. You will work closely with mobile, services and other client developers to define and provide the appropriate APIs.

  • Knowledgeable in software architecture design, coding and debugging
  • Understanding of AWS basics and CI/CD processes is a plus
