Role Description

Alto is looking for a candidate that relishes leading a small, focused team on the company's most challenging software problems. This individual must lead by example, have excellent communications skills, and know above all else that it can be done.

We are looking for engineers who have 10+ years of software engineering experience, functional programming experience, preferably in a compiled language, and even more preferable if it's on the BEAM virtual machine! You should have experience in a startup or growth-stage company, as well as experience in SaaS products. Finally, we host our entire platform in AWS, and require a strong competency towards operating within their cloud platform.

If you're the type of engineer who finds joy in orchestrating systems which transact in orders of milliseconds and years then we have a great opportunity for you. We are building a wealth orchestration platform which enables anyone with a tax-advantaged IRA to invest in alternative assets such as: cryptocurrencies, real-estate, artwork, startups, and more!

This is an opportunity to build out an already booming platform in a fantastic collaborative team environment. So come join us on our mission to help millions of people unlock alternatives to build wealth for the future!

What You'll Do

  • Build new services to meet critical product and business needs, using Elixir, which support hundreds of thousands of users.
  • You'll support and mentor less experienced team members, helping them break down technical solutions and instill quality in their code.
  • Champion the adoption of practical best practices and foster continuous improvement within the team.
  • Ensure the team continuously delivers changes to production on time, with integrity.
  • Work autonomously but put team goals above your own and are willing to go above and beyond when the team needs you.
  • Communicate openly and support your team with human sensitivity.
  • Hold customers and team members in high regard.

Nice To Haves

  • Production systems experience in Elixir or Erlang
  • 3+ years of functional programming experience
  • Experience in SaaS products
  • Familiarity with relational and non-relational data storage systems (Postgres, Redis, etc...)
  • You've worked in a remote-first environment
  • AWS Experience
