Role Description

We're looking for strong, senior backend engineers with 6+ years of experience. We love engineers who have worked at smaller startups helping build products from the ground up, but also those with experience building out new product lines or features at more established companies.

The biggest engineering challenge you will face at Forge is technical design of products in an incredibly complex business domain. This could include building new products to improve our existing business or architecting and implementing entire systems as we expand into other financial services.

At Forge, we strive to design & build smart so each engineer can have a massive impact on the business. If you enjoy functional programming, domain modeling, backend architecture design, and shipping client-facing products you're a perfect fit for this role.

About Forge

Forge is the stock market for private companies. We work with individuals (employees and investors), institutions (VCs, Funds, Banks), and the largest and best-known tech companies to enable liquidity and access in the private company ecosystem.

We raised our $85M Series B and there is enormous scope for ownership and growth as we’re growing rapidly on every front (team size, product lines, geography, adoption).

Our mission is to bring liquidity to illiquid assets through technology and to fix the economics around startup compensation, in order to accelerate global innovation.

Company Culture

Beyond technical excellence, we value entrepreneurial initiative and energy. Many people on our team have started companies in the past, and many others intend to do so in the future.

We believe in hiring brilliant people so that they can tell us what to do, not the other way around.
