The Position:

To drive our future growth, we need to dramatically scale our existing platform. Ethoca’s growth is explosive, and only great problem-solvers, collaborators, and thinkers can help us take it to the next level. We want to hire leaders that are eager to have influence on scaling processes, people, and technology.  In today’s modern working environment we fully support a flexible model allowing employees the choice to work from home or the office.

We believe in decoupled, message-driven, and distributed systems.  We strive to keep codebases small and manageable.  We are interested in reactive design patterns that will make our systems more resilient and responsive yet remain elastic to change.  As we proceed through our technology roadmap, we are evaluating new community endorsed technologies for every tier of our platform.  Our backend tiers are presently JVM-based.  We are using or considering technologies like Spring Boot 2.4, Angular 12, Azure, REST, Chef, Terraform, Splunk and so on.
