Job Description

At Remitly, we're helping people send over $3 billion around the globe driven by our mission to deliver on our promise to immigrants sending money across the world.

As a Senior Software Development Engineer at Remitly, you are a builder and a leader, responsible for taking on complex technical and customer problems and creating great products backed by great systems. We use cutting edge languages, tools, and frameworks to build applications and services on top of a scalable cloud architecture. Our startup work environment is fast-paced, passionate and growing quickly.

Successful senior engineers use their experience to research and evaluate technical options, then apply standard methodologies and design patterns to architect, build, and maintain high quality systems. They work across teams to define and articulate the true technical requirements underlying feature requests, and design with an eye for simultaneously accomplishing company goals, improving existing systems, and reducing technical debt. They are also acutely aware that software isn’t complete after shipping, instead designing for stability, monitoring, and maintenance over time; they create systems that can evolve but last for years. More than just building, senior engineers also mentor, evangelize engineering practices, and continuously encourage technical excellence across the company.

Some examples of current interesting problems include:

  • Building APIs, services, mobile, and web applications for our next-generation customer experience.
  • Designing a robust system to provide timely and cost-effective customer support across a variety of modern communication channels.
  • Building a scalable platform for integrating with diverse bank APIs around the globe to collect, manage, track, and disburse funds.
  • Integrating online machine learning and predictive analytics models with our transactional systems to predict customer demand and prevent fraud.

You should possess:

  • A BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent professional experience.
  • 7+ years of experience as a software developer.
  • A deep understanding of software development practices, system design, software design patterns, and algorithms.
  • Minimum of 3 years experience working with Java; PHP background is an advantage
  • Strong ability to mentor and influence other engineers.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Experience defining and influencing technical designs and processes across a team.
