Engineering at Point Bank
Engineering team and processes

Currently, we are a small and collaborative engineering team consisting of a CTO (focused primarily on backend), one backend developer, and a remote frontend developer.

We are looking for a principle backend engineer to join us and be a primary contributor to the backend codebase.

Some engineering practices we currently employ are Git Flow, Code Review, Some CI/CD deploy pipelines and Unit Testing.

Technical Challenges

We are building a financial technology product which requires the utmost security principles, high availability and efficient concurrent processes. We need to ensure that our API, services, and database are able to sustain high volume of throughput while not sacrificing on security, in addition to maintaining PCI compliance.

As we scale we will need to build out services in a service oriented architecture from our API monolith and be able to maintain high availability and security.

We will also be faced with fraud and will have to build systems around monitoring this even if we also leverage a 3rd party provider.

Another interesting challenge is point accrual and redemption accounting and ensuring that we have fail safes in place for audit trailing and replay if a disaster scenario were to occur.

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to work on building out data-enrichment for debit card transactions to make the individual transaction data more legible and clear to our end users.

  • You would be working on the points accrual and redemption systems. You get to reward people for supporting their favorite merchants!

  • Building out infrastructure for a direct integration to our bank partners API.
