Junior Software Engineer: Backend

Job description


We are Ramp


Ramp is a global company with one goal in mind: to make crypto easier. Interacting with crypto-powered apps still feels intimidating for most. We work to unlock a future where crypto is as easy to use as eCommerce is today.

Ramp’s SDK and APIs empower hundreds of developers to build the crypto buying process right into their apps used by millions of users. We leverage the power of existing banking and payment systems to provide a seamless experience for crypto onboarding focusing on UX, speed and security.

We’re backed by some amazing institutional investors including NfX, Seedcamp, Firstminute and Galaxy Digital, as well as founders and execs from Wise, Dapper, Coinbase, Stripe and other high value-add investors.

You will be working hand in hand with the best builders and makers in the industry on the cross-section of fintech and blockchain. We build on a global scale, by empowering novel and breathtaking products. Focus and excellence are a must.


Role Overview


We’re looking for a Backend Engineer to help develop Ramp's applications and core engines with the rest of the engineering team. Someone who is excited by the possibilities of working on the intersection of FinTech and blockchain, focused and deeply detail-oriented.


Core Responsibilities


  • regular development of our core products,
  • updates and maintenance of our payment rails, blockchain connectors and other partner integrations,
  • implementing new features in internal tools.

Requirements


Candidate Requirements


  • 1+ years of experience in backend development,
  • understanding of backend system architecture & principles,
  • attention to details and clean code,
  • readiness to work in a rapidly scaling startup,
  • interest in either fintech (payment services) or blockchain (exchanges or dApps) is a bonus point,
  • English: day-to-day communication level.

Our codebase is written almost entirely in TypeScript, so thumbs up if you're familiar with it (and if not, get familiar, it's brilliant). JavaScript also works for us.


Here's our stack:

Backend:

  • TypeScript
  • nestJS (Node.js framework)
  • PostgreSQL
  • RabbitMQ

We need you to be familiar with at least some of these technologies, but language is just a language, what's more important is the way you think about building stuff. Definitely show off your GitHub profile (+1 for blockchain-related contributions) and brag about developing reliable, high-quality software.


Here’s the rest of our stack if you’re interested:

Frontend: TypeScript, react, jest.js, CSS (SCSS + CSS Modules), MobX.
