Job Description

At Remitly, we're helping people send over $4 billion around the globe motivated by our mission to deliver on our promise to immigrants sending money across the world.

As a Software Development Engineer at Remitly, you are a builder and a leader, responsible for pursuing complex technical and customer problems and creating extraordinary 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 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 to deliver quality software while shooting for stars; they create systems that can evolve but last for years. More than just building, engineers also mentor, evangelize engineering practices, and continuously inspire technical excellence across the company.

  • You will be building a scalable reconciling platform via integrating with diverse bank APIs around the globe to provide accurate view of financials.

  • A deep understanding of software development practices, system design, software design patterns, and algorithms.
  • Expertise in one or more general purpose languages like Java, Go, PHP, JavaScript,Python, or Ruby.

  • Excellent verbal and written interpersonal skills.
  • Experience defining and influencing technical designs and processes across a team.
