Software Engineer

New York, United States Full-time

About Us

We’re building products to improve the lives of the unbanked in emerging markets by connecting them to global payment networks.

First, we're building Taptap Send, a consumer app for immigrants sending money back home to Africa instantly with no fees. Global remittances account for over $500 billion annually and are currently dominated by traditional services that are expensive, can take days to send, and have limited reach in rural areas. We're helping people to send that money instantly and securely at a fraction of the cost of current services.

Second, our enterprise payments platform is used by NGOs that need to pay employees and beneficiaries in challenging environments, agricultural firms that need to pay farmers, gig economy firms that need pay their workers, and more.

We’re a small, venture-backed NY/London-based team and are looking to hire exceptional people who are excited by our mission and share our values. We have competitive salary and stock options, flexible hours, unlimited vacation, and great medical, dental, and vision benefits.

The Role

As a software engineer, you'd help define, build, and iterate on our core products. Our backend services are built in Kotlin and Spring; we use PostgreSQL as our main datastore and AWS, Docker, and Ansible to manage our infrastructure. Our frontend is written in JavaScript, and we use React Native and Redux.

You should:

  • Be a strong developer experienced in writing clean, production-quality code
  • Be excited to work on a small team across all parts of the stack
  • Enjoy collaborating with others to make product decisions
  • Be motivated by our mission and want to work on something with significant impact on the world
