We are looking for a talented Senior Software Engineer to help us build our SaaS-based anti-money laundering solutions. We are building solutions that help reveal the truth for a safer world and stop money ending up in the hands of terrorists.
How? By bringing together smart technology, data and people into a single solution. We are building tools that fight financial crime today to prevent a riskier tomorrow.
Every day we look to tackle highly interesting and challenging problems that can help people better live their lives free from fraud, corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing. We have developed modern, web-based applications that allow our growing list of international clients to detect, and ultimately prevent, illegal financial activities. We reduce crime and criminal activity through the creative use of technology & design and disrupt the compliance industry while doing so.

- Responsible for working with the engineering and product teams to design, implement and support features and components for our screening platform.

- Understand, extend and modify complex logic with many technical dependencies and consequences
- You will be a strong believer in DevOps and are comfortable with getting into the details of infrastructure and deployment

- Provide leadership, coaching and mentoring to more junior engineers and help them to become as good as you are
What does success look like after 6 months?

- Experience with MongoDB, ElasticSearch or some other distributed data storage system
- Exposure to designing enterprise grade applications
- Experience working with cloud based systems and ideally be familiar with cloud technologies and containers
