Pre-Series A

Everyday, companies make purchases to run their businesses. As they scale, it gets harder and harder for them to maintain good practices and visibility. As a result, employees buy without informing the right stakeholders, people forget about unused subscriptions that continue to auto-renew; budget owners don't know how they're doing against their budget until it's too late …

Trace is a spend management platform for medium to large enterprises that benefits everybody in the company:

• Employees get a delightful experience to purchase, pay, and manage their finance requests.

• Budget owners gain full visibility toward the past, present and future purchase commitments.

• Finance team automates the tedious back office work and lower the risk of unmanaged spend.

Engineering at Trace
Engineering team and processes

We've just raised our seed round, so you will participate in the early stage of the product development. We want to bring you and other talented engineers to make a big impact. Martin previously led multiple engineering teams at Box. We want to leverage the same best practices that you can find in other great companies in the valley (code reviews, 1-on-1s, performance reviews, etc.).

Technical Challenges

There's a large variety of problems to solve. To name a few:

• how to keep our Single Page Application ultra responsive and fast to load,

• how to structure our API to keep the various services decoupled, easy to understand, secured and performant.

• how to store the company financial data so that it can be digested and presented in reports that are flexible, fast to load, etc.

• how can you leverage the collected data to provide more value to our customers (think machine learning and AI to do things like invoice and contract analysis, vendor recommendation, data anomaly detection)

• how do we monitor and manage our infrastructure and keep it secure?
