Описание вакансии

We are looking for an experienced backend engineer, no matter what programming language you typically use, to help us develop core fintech features and scale. It's a great opportunity for those who love/would like to learn Functional Programming and want to work with Haskell as their primary language. You'll be a part of a small tight team, designing the core architectures and foundations for product growth.


  • Backend stack: Haskell + AWS + Postgres
  • Monolithic web-backend with Persistent/Esqueleto (DSL for type-safe SQL queries) and Servant (DSL for type-safe API)
  • All infrastructure is hosted on top of Docker and AWS, entirely automated with Haskell code

In this role, you'll be writing code in Haskell and occasionally work with our PostgreSQL database or AWS infrastructure. If you're familiar with AWS or SQL superficially, don't worry — we'll ensure you have the training and support you need.


We expect just 3 things:

  • solid understanding of how distributed web systems work
  • basic Haskell knowledge; no type-level fancy extensions are required
  • good English reading / writing skills

No formal degree is required. 

Prior experience with some of the listed languages is a plus: Scala, Kotlin, F#, Rust, Erlang, Elixir, Closure.

Prior experience with FinTech and particularly Lending is a huge plus.


  • stable compensation $2,500-$5,000
  • flexible hours, remote setup
  • autonomy and influence
  • applied Haskell experience in a large-scale setting
  • globally resellable and highly in-demand experience in FinTech
  • work closely with the founding team in an open, fast moving and fun environment
  • experience with launching products in the most competitive market in the world
  • steep learning curve across a wide range of hard and soft skills and responsibilities
  • contribute to building products with a big social mission and world class customer experiences

Дополнительные инструкции

Please describe your experience with any functional language and FinTech.
