[Job] Tech Lead @ Wildcard - Sydney

Title: [Job] Full Time, Tech Lead @ Wildcard (Sydney)

Take the next step in your career - help lead engineering at a fast-paced, growing startup

The problem we’re solving

We live in a world of instant gratification that wants you to spend money you don’t have, on stuff you don’t need. Just look at the growing number of buy-now-pay-later platforms that make it even easier to spend without thinking.

It’s a big part of why a quarter of young Australians have less than $1000 in savings.

How we help

We want to help our generation spread out their pay without resorting to short term credit. So we built a transaction account that gives you a portion of your pay every day (we jokingly call it “BeforePay”).

And it looks like it’s working - since launching a full transaction and savings account last month, we’re now growing by almost 1000 accounts per week.

Why we need you

We need a skilled Ruby developer to take over our backend development, and help us make the big decisions on how we scale our product. A well-built, well-tested, secure, reliable and solid backend will be absolutely crucial to our long-term success.

What’s in it for you

You’ll get to lead big picture projects like our open API and Open Banking integration, as well as initiate projects of your own.

Working at a small company will give you the opportunity to improve in every aspect of your craft, in a fast-paced, exciting environment. And as an early employee, you’ll have a big influence over the direction of the company, as well as receive a stake in the business.

Our culture

Lots of “progressive” companies like to brag about all the cool stuff you get working for them, like beer fridges and foosball tables. We think some things are more important than “work perks”, like unlimited annual leave, transparent salaries, and being free to choose how, when and where you work. Read more here: bit.ly/2sxdmZP

Our engineering philosophy

We believe that clean, simple and easy to understand code is critical to our success - not an afterthought. We’re proud that we’ve built a complete transaction and savings account with fewer than 7000 lines of code.
