Role Description

The problem

More than half of American workers live paycheck-to-paycheck. Stuck in this cycle, they collectively lose over $120 billion each year on payday loans, bank overdrafts, and fees. We’re trying to fix that by building new financial services that make it easier to plan ahead, pay down debt, and save. And we’re doing it as a transparent, straightforward business that only profits when our members do.

The role

Banking Engineering is enabling Even’s next major step forward in improving the lives of its members. We are building a banking product (a debit card, bank accounts, a robust mobile app) tailored to the needs of our members, alongside a banking platform, deeply integrated with financial infrastructure, that will multiply the impact of Even’s service as a whole. Our team’s work is foundational to Even and as such we work closely with teams across the organization ranging from Security to Member Support to Infrastructure. We are looking for Full-Stack Software Engineers to help architect and build our initial release.

What you’ll do

Help define the product and system architecture. Contribute to core features and services that cut across every part of the product. Proactively scale our systems as our member base and team grow. Learn about financial infrastructure and work to bring fresh perspectives to the table.

What you'll need

2+ years of software engineering experience, or equivalent. Experience building mobile or web-based apps, bonus points for experience with React. Pride in your craft. You strive to build a world-class product across design, product, and engineering. The ability to learn quickly. You’re excited to work with a Go, Javascript, and Python stack built using AWS, React Native, GraphQL, and gRPC.

Signs that you're a great fit

You thrive in a passionate, mission-driven environment. You measure your success by your impact on people’s lives. You know that a successful product requires more than great engineering. You think deeply about our members’ problems, our product vision, and our design approach. You hold yourself and those around you to high standards. You know that achieving excellence is a continuous process, not an accident. You are pragmatic and carefully weigh tradeoffs on a case-by-case basis to achieve the most value for our team and members. You understand that the road to a great product is paved with candid, but respectful, feedback. You care more about finding the truth than being right. You love to proactively help those around you grow. You unsparingly offer your time to mentor colleagues. You bring positivity and optimism to the team each day. You care deeply but don’t take yourself too seriously.

What you'll get from us — great work

Impact: We are laser-focused on tackling huge societal problems. You’ll be on the front lines, visibly improving people’s lives. Just look at our app store feedback. Autonomy: We reward holistic thinking and individual initiative. You’ll tackle large-scope projects by working directly with stakeholders across the company. Growth: We know that our future rests in the hands of our teammates so we invest generously in mentorship. You can expect extensive internal transparency, 1:1 coaching with senior staff, and proactive career planning.

What you'll get from us — great benefits

Competitive compensation, equity, healthcare, and retirement packages. A $5,000 annual educational stipend to invest in your learning and development. A $500 annual financial advice stipend. A $100 monthly stipend for health and wellness expenses. A flexible vacation policy and a team that understands building a company is a marathon, not a sprint. 12 weeks of paid parental leave.

What you'll get from us — a great workplace

Carefully defined anti-perks that create a focused and inclusive office. Pleasant, easily-accessible workspaces in downtown Oakland and Raleigh, with lots of natural light. Coworkers that you’ll be proud to work with. We do our best work in a close-knit, supportive environment. A team that values substance over style.

Even is used by people of all backgrounds, and we believe the best products are built by teams that represent their users. We value unique contributions and actively welcome people of all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to join us at Even.

About Even

Over half of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. We’re trying to fix that, by building new financial services that make it easier to make ends meet, pay down debt, and save money. And we’re doing it as a transparent, straightforward business that only profits when our customers do, too.

We partner with employers to offer Even as a benefit. Employers offer Even to their people; in return, employers save money because Even improves employee retention.

Company Culture

We've made an intentional choice to build a small, highly autonomous team. This means minimizing coordination costs while having high expectations for our individual output and ownership over the problems we work on.
