Modernbanc is a full-stack financial software platform.

Today it takes up to a year and team of engineers with payments background to build a payments and financial stack for your business and 90% of the companies keep rebuilding the same non-differentiating part of their business, that if built wrong can cause a company death. Modernbanc provides reliable building blocks to build these apps fast.

We're backed by Global Founders Capital, Soma Capital, Backend Capital, Socially Financed and and a handful of amazing investors including fintech leaders and CEOs. Our founding team has built a licensed bank before for one of the world's biggest banks.

If you want to supercharge your career, make crazy impact and join a small team of ambitious and unconventional thinkers we'd love to chat.

What you'll do:

  • Build real-time accounting and payments infrastructure.
  • Building a blazing-fast app and high-performance backend..
  • Manage and evolve our GCP & Kubernetes infrastructure..
  • Do all parts of product release, from writing and testing code to updating documentation.

What we look for:

  • Knows how to ship high-quality code and do it fast.
  • A good eye for design and urge to ship impeccable quality products that make customers go wow.
  • T-shaped people, good generalists but who mastered at least one field (e.g you're amazing at building real-time low-latency systems or unique UI experiences.)
  • Works hard to hit and exceed startup goals.
  • Capable of wearing many different hats.

This is an amazing opportunity to learn from very experienced people and in addition to competitive salaries we are very generous with equity as we want you to win and grow with the company.
