  • Able to conduct an orchestra of linux micro-services as if it was Beethoven’s 5th. Experience using Docker and related tools to build, manage, update and monitor robust services in containers on clouds

  • A polyglot programmer who is happy to work in multiple languages to get the job done best. We like Python

  • Knowledge of TCP, HTTP, iptables, ssh tunnels, nginx configuration, nagios, cacti, XML

  • Appreciation of the phrase “rsyncing without strace”


This may sound like DevOps, SysAdmin or just startup engineer. The reality is that this is all of those things, and as a ground-breaking FinTech company we are solving problems that haven’t been solved before. So we don’t expect you to have all the answers, but we do expect you to be the kind of person that can find them.
