As Backend Engineer at Maybe, you'll be responsible for the server side code and APIs of our web applications. You'll be involved in the entire product development lifecycle including the design, development, deployment and maintenance of new and existing features.
This is a data and external API-heavy position, with a lot of time spent reconciling numbers, dealing with third-party APIs and making sure everything plays nice together.
Ultimately, you'll be the driving force behind all backend activities.
We're still in very early days of Maybe, and as such, much of the tech stack is rapidly changing. Flexibility is key here and your input and expertise on the stack is very much wanted.
On a base level, experience with the following tech is a major pro:
You've shipped large applications with many components and data structures.
At Maybe we're building the next generation of financial & retirement planning tools. Founded in 2021, we're working to equip consumers with the resources they need to take control of their financial future.
Working 30 years and then riding off in to the sunset at 65 isn't the goal for most people anymore. They want to experience life, take risks and pour their hearts in to what matters most to them. They want to dream. And Maybe helps them do that.
Maybe you open a coffee shop? Maybe you take a trip to Asia? Maybe you put your money in to index funds and live off the returns? Maybe you dabble in crypto? Maybe you invest in art? Maybe you buy your dream home?
Maybe helps you figure out what's possible and how to get there.
The application process involves answering a few questions here and then doing a small coding challenge. Our goal is to make this one of the fastest application processes you go through so you aren't left hanging/wondering for days/weeks on end.
As part of the hiring process, we do a 4-week paid trial period to make sure there's a good fit on both sides.
We ask that you put in at least 10 hours per week for those 4 weeks.
Everything above sound good? We'd love to hear from you!
