The role

We are seeking a Staff Software Engineer to join the Credit Card Acquisitions & Growth team. SoFi allows its members to Save & Spend in ways that help them achieve their financial independence. Our Credit Card is an important piece of the overall personal finance puzzle. We are heavily investing in growing CC business and reinventing how we connect to customers in innovative ways - both on backend and front end. For that, we need to start designing our technology stack for future growth.

The ideal candidate is both forward-thinking and hands-on, has a strong sense of ownership, self-starter, drive for delivery, approaches complex questions with data & curiosity, dives below the surface to identify the root cause, and is a good mentor and co-worker.

  • Consistently demonstrate extremely high levels of technical knowledge, ingenuity, and creativity. Develops and applies advanced technologies, engineering principles, theories, and concepts. Broad knowledge about the design and operation of systems outside of specialty.
  • Work within the Engineering team to develop features that specifically benefit our users.
  • Must be able to deliver high-quality code on schedule, communicate with groups in and outside the development team.

What you’ll need:

  • Bachelor’s Degree, Computer Science Degree or equivalent from a fully-accredited college or university
  • 6+ years Java/Koltin programming experience
  • Experience working on a SOA or microservice-based application.
  • A proven understanding of relational databases and ORMs
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves, collaborate with others and get stuff done
  • Solid sense of responsibility; driving a project from inception to completion
  • Experience working in a collaborative coding environment, refining designs together, working through code reviews and managing pull requests

Nice to have:

  • Experience in designing large scale backend applications & systems.
  • Test-driven development along with unit and integration testing.
  • Experience working with AWS services, Spring Boot and handling live production issues.
