Senior Backend Engineer

Job description

We are Ramp

Blockchain is changing the world and has the potential to turn it upside down. We know that it is time to reverse the model we got used to, where the top 1% decide on everything. Blockchain democratises entertainment, wealth, builds new opportunities for community-driven innovation, shakes up the ancien regime. We’re inches away from the paradigm shift and Ramp is here to help move the needle.


The bottom-up revolution is already on the move and there is still some space onboard. Ramp is here to use the knowledge of finance and technology to make business more open to everyone to join in and 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.


We believe in technology-driven change. We are a part of the decentralised revolution. For us, that means adding value to the world by individual approach and critical eye. Our operating framework is built on passion & hunger. We gathered the best-in-class team to work together on things that matter. We want you to feel challenged and motivated by the company you have and give the same feeling to your teammates.


If you share our values and approach, there is a space for you at Ramp!


Role Overview
We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to develop Ramp's core settlement engine 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

  • maintaining and extending core services,
  • connecting our payment rails to different blockchains,
  • integrating payment gateways & Open Banking APIs with open ledgers,
  • building internal tools and architecture.

Requirements

  • 4+ years of experience in building sophisticated backend systems,
  • readiness to work in a rapidly scaling up startup,
  • experience in either fintech (payment services) or blockchain (exchanges or dApps) is not a must but definitely a bonus point,
  • experience with high availability and scaling backend systems is nice to have. 

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.

DevOps: Google Cloud Engine, Docker, CircleCI and others.

Blockchain: Solidity, web3.js, ethers.js.
