About One

One’s mission is simple - to help customers achieve financial progress. We’re doing this by creating simple solutions to help our customers save, spend, borrow, and grow their money – all in one place.

The U.S. consumer today deserves better. Millions of Americans today can’t access credit, build savings or wealth, and are left to manage their financial lives through multiple disconnected apps. Almost a quarter of U.S. adults are unbanked or underbanked and roughly 80% of fintech users rely on multiple accounts to manage their finances.

What makes us unique? We are backed by a preeminent fintech investor (Ribbit) and the world’s largest retailer (Walmart), maintain the speed and independence of a startup, and employ a strong (and growing) collection of world-class talent.

There’s never been a better moment to build a business that helps people achieve financial progress. Come build with us!

The role

Platform Engineers at One are responsible for providing a stable, secure, and efficient platform that upholds our high standards of security and compliance, ultimately ensuring customer trust and business success. You’ll be one of the first engineers focusing on a section of engineering with massive impact across the organization and One as a whole! The goal of this team is to bring a software engineering mindset to devops problem statements.

This role is responsible for:

  • Solving complex problems that arise at scale. We deal with real-world money movement, sensitive financial data at scale, and are creating novel financial mechanics with no real precedent.

  • Designing, implementing, and maintaining CI/CD tooling to safeguard against unsafe code changes.

  • Optimizing canary rollouts, and streamlining release processes.

  • Proactively identifying and implementing significant improvements in deployment efficiency and development velocity, impacting the entire engineering organization.

You bring

  • 4+ years engineering experience and proven skills in building secure, reliable platforms; bonus if you have an understanding of financial industry-specific challenges and regulations.

  • An understanding of what good code delivery looks like, the challenges that arise and a dedication to solving them

  • Familiarity with kubernetes. Have you deployed applications into kubernetes and can talk through managing deployments?

  • A relentless focus on securing sensitive financial data, and ensuring platform reliability and performance.

  • A proactive ownership mentality, constantly improving platform resilience and efficiency, especially in the fast-paced fintech environment. We have a bias toward taking action.

  • Experience with and a desire to work in or learn a functional style of programming. Our backend is written in a style very similar to (Scala, Haskell), so if monoids and monads are exciting on Mondays, then you will fit right in.

  • The Triple H Factor: Hungry, Humble, Honest.

Pay Transparency

The estimated annual base salary for this position ranges from $175,000 to $205,000. Pay is generally based upon the level, complexity, responsibility, and job duties/requirements of the specific position. We then source candidates with the requisite skills, expertise, education, training, and experience.

Leveling Philosophy

In order to thoughtfully scale the company and avoid downstream inequities, we’ve adopted a flat titling structure at One. Though we may occasionally post a role externally with a prefix such as “Senior” to reflect the external level of the position, we do not use prefixes in titles like that internally unless in a position which manages a team. Internal titles typically include your specific functional responsibility, such as engineering, product management or sales, and often include additional descriptors to ensure clarity of role and placement within our organization (i.e. “Engineer, Platform”, “Sales, Business Development” or “Manager, Talent”). Employees are paid commensurate with their experience and the internal level within One.

Inclusion & Belonging

To build technology and products that are used and loved by people and solve real-world problems, we need to build a team with many different perspectives and experiences. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply.
